Burr on hook assembly

Recommended Posts

The screw that holds the need in place loosened, the needle came down and the machine banged it into the hole in the sole plate.  I can't see any damage besides the bent needle.  But now the thread is shredding.  I believe I might have a burr but cannot see one even when I removed the sole plate.  How do I remove the bobbin assembly to check it and make sure there are no burrs?  There is a long black metal "finger" holding the bobbin case in place and I cannot get the phillips screw out.  Any suggestions.?

Before you go that far check the needle bar height.  From your description I'm not sure the needle hit the hook.  The instructions are here about the 30 minute mark.
