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!

Needle hitting this and breaking. Pulling too ******* thread caught in bobbin case is the cause. How to fix or readjust?

breaking needles from hitting can be from several problems
1-- needle /hook timing is out
2--needle thread tension is too tight pulling needle side ways
thread caught around bobbin holder is top thread too loose
take it in for a service check as the needle /hook timing is complicated to adjust and the problem could be more complicated than suggested

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.

How to time machine?

the eye of the needle has to be at the bobbin carrier hook as it starts on the up stroke
it is adjusted by loosening of the lock clamp screw on the shaft that carries the needle and adjusted until that situation is achieved
It is normally not needing adjustment unless the needle has hit and bent during operation
Take it in for a service at a sewing repair shop

I have a brother SE-400 the metal ring that catches the top thread under the bobbing case (the bobbin housing?) hits my needle with every stitch, bending and breaking needles. The timing has been...

The metal ring sounds like the hook you are talking about.
Timing is only one of the issues you must also adjust the needle to hook clearance and needle bar height. The tip of the hook must pass above the eye of the needle in the scarf on the back of the needle without touching the needle. Who adjusted the timing and what did they do?

Can't sew. Needle hits zig-zag plate. Needle is not bent.

Replace the needle anyway, it's probably blunted now. Also narrow the zig zag width. But your machine needs adjustment. Take it in for a good clean and repair.

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.
