I wish I had a simple answer for you.  Sometimes a roller will last several
months and sometimes I have changed the same one twice in a day (heavy fill
designs).  Between my 3 AMAYA's I put around 1 million stitches a day on
them.  My best recommendation is if you get more than 2 false bobbin detects
on the same needle you may want to replace the roller.  Before replacing
look at the rubber to make sure there is a groove forming in it.  I think
the rollers are around $1.70 but since they are in the phases of fixing this
problem you can order them as Warranty items for now.  I (since I have 3
machines) order 30 or 40 at a time and when I get down to 10 I re-order
more.  I have no idea if they are still warrantying(sp?) them but even if it
cost me $30 a month in rollers I would pay it to keep my machines running.
I got so hammered for the Christmas season this year I had to hire 2 part
time employees and have been working 6-7 days a week, so these AMAYA's are
seeing lots of hours (I did 8 70k stitch full back logos on 1 of my AMAYA's
just yesterday with 3 thread breaks at 1200 SPM).

I hope this helps a little at least.  At least if you are getting lots of
false bobbin detects you know one place to check.  It seems to me like 8 out
of 10 times my false bobbin detects are roller related.  Sometimes it is
from the bobbin catching up or just something weird happening that you cant
