I am having continuous trouble with my bobbin case rattling & jumping around, thus catching the needle, jamming up and making a horrible sound. When this happens, and it happens often, the bobbin case is ruined. When I change the bobbin I'm always having to reset the bobbin case back down into the machine, as it jumps up on the lip. When I'm sewing I notice the thread looks wound around the bobbin. Also, the needle threading hook does not always line up with the eye of the needle. I've had it in for repair several times. They cannot find anything wrong with it. Last night was the last straw. I was trying to add a zipper and it jammed up and broke the needle. I am not sewing through thick material, manly cotton or cotton blends, lined occasionally with low loft batting. I sew mainly with my Juki 1541 walking foot machine and embroidery on my Brother 1050X. I'm not asking much of this machine and still it does not, has never worked well. I'm at a loss, other than eating the two grand I paid for it and all its stuff and buying a $150 machine at Costco to install zippers!
