Needle Hitting Solid Metal

I was given a Singer Sewing Machine today. I don't know age, I think the model could be 7110. That number is below the Singer sign on the front. It's electric by the way.

The problem is, the needle hits down onto the solid metal. It doesn't seem to go down into the hole to pick the bobbin thread up. What can I do to correct this?

    It sounds like the timing of my bobbin mechanism is off. My
    needle is hitting solid metal for approx 1/4 of it's downward
    motion. Please assist -thank you.

On my machine, that usually happens when the needle gets bent. Try replacing the needle.

My needle is hitting the metal plate on a singer cg590 sewing machine. Is there a way to adjust it back into its correct position?

Your needle plate may have been place incorrectly, and it's easy to do. Even the slightest variation can cause the needle to hit it. Try taking the metal plate off and then reseating it -- testing the needle position before you tighten the screws.

Are there other needle positions on your machine that will allow the needle to pass without hitting? Otherwise, I suspect the accessory you have is not installed correctly or is not correct for your machine.

Time for a tune up and the timing to be reset. People tend forget that machines do need to be serviced once in a while, it will be well worth it. Just remember it is a machine, just like your car.

Take the needle plate off and turn the needle up and down by hand while watching to see if it is hitting anything. The hook timing could be off.
