I had many broken needles before I put my thread on a thread stand behind my machine. I found that the thread was winding around the thread post and causing a jam and thus, breaking my needles. This solution worked!

The needle has just started hitting something so wont go down, have tried 4 different needles

It is your hook (part of bobbin area) that is hitting your needle. You have a problem with the timing. More than likely you are in need of one or more gears that have worn out. This is a repair that your maintenance man will need to do.

I have a kenmore model 38512490 sewing machine and I have the machine and the bobbin threaded and I get three stitches into my fabric and the needle refuses to go down and then when it does go down it...

This may be a timing/needle bar height problem. Remove the needle plate and watch the tip of the hook as you turn the handwheel towards you. As the needle rises your hook should pass just above the eye of the needle. At no time should the needle hit the bottom of the hook assembly. This requires some special tools and skills to fix find an expert in your area.

Needle hitting pressor foot

Presser foot not correctly mounted, or needle bent, or needle bar loose or bent are the most likely.

Breaking Needle Thread Janone Memory

Several possibilities
1. The needle thread is not threaded properly.
2. The needle thread tension is too tight.
3. The needle is bent or blunt.
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted.
5. The fabric is not being drawn to the back when sewing is finished.
6. The thread is either too heavy or too fine for the needle.
7. Old perished thread. Use quality thread for best results.
8. Needleplate burred near hole, from needlestrikes 9. Hook is burred (Feel the tip of the hook under bobbincase with your finger....polish with 1600 emery paper carefully)

A bent needle will hit the metal. If it continues you will need to adjust the needle carrier. hopefully that isn't bent, but if so I don't believe that the replacement of it will be too costly.

Bobbin thread not being picked up

This unfortunately sounds dismally like a timing problem. When a sewing machine makes a sudden mechanical stop as when a needle is bent slightly and hits the needle plate, sometimes the other machine bits revolve along further causing the needle to be introduced into the hook either to early or to late to catch the thread.

To test this, remove the thread, the needle plate and and the bobbin case. Replace the needle with a brand new one. Yes, again. Revolve the machine by hand via the balance wheel and watch closely as the needle goes into the hook region allow it to it move down and then just start to move up. If the tip of the hook is not pretty close to right behind the needle than it is more than likely a timing problem.

If the tip of the hook is behind the needle in the scarf (the slight hollow on the back of the needle) than it is not timing. Thread the machine normally like it is and watch what happens as you manually turn the machine via the balance wheel. The thread should catch and be pulled around the hook and let go.

Try this and then either you figured it out the problem or contact me again. Either way please vote. Thanks
