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?

    My sewing machine is an 25 yr +/- Singer Touch and Sew. The needle go
    into the bobbin hole for part of the circular cylcle, but then hits
    metal and will break needle. I've cleaned and oiled the
    machine, but can't seem to fix this. Your assistance is greatly
    appreciated...

    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.

Singer 5532 needle hitting plate how do I fix this


Welcome to sewing. First guess is the needle is loose or got bent. Remove the needle and roll it on a flat surface to look for bends. Although, it would need quite a bend to hit. Jeans require a 110 or larger needle. If the motor strains when crossing the heavy folded areas turn the wheel by hand - you will then know why the motor was straining. Also, sometimes multiple layers require using a seam ripper tool to unsew and then cut out excess layers. It all takes time and patients. Keep at it it's worth it. Consider downloading the manual and carefully review to make sure the machine is threaded right - common beginner mistake.

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.
