Hi and welcome to Just answer.

Initially, turn off your machine, remove your needle plate and clean it using dry cloth, on your bobbin area use compressed air or compressor and blow that area. There is possible lint/debris that block the sensor.

Let me know if still persist.

Hope this information will be helpful.
