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!

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.

I have a Singer 7426. The needle is hitting the hook area incorrectly, making a jerking motion with the needle along with a tapping noise. Any idea how to correct it?


the needle probable is bent-has to be replaced so it won't damage the needle bar
if the needle is hitting the needle plate then it needs to be check for burrs, small burrs can snag the fabric

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
