Make sure the needle is all the way up in the shaft/bar. It can work loose and slip down. Make sure you're installing the needle correctly.

How do you adjust the needle position.


Do you have the needle facing the correct direction when installed in the machine? Consult the owner's manual. The flat side of the needle needs to face a particular direction.

Hi
Take off the bulb cover and check that the buffer at the end of the on the curved spring above the needle bar. It deteriorates like the needle bar stopper you just replaced. If it is still there and in good condition then your machine probably now needs adjustment/service.

How do i move the needle bar to the back on a bernina 1008. It is not in the middle of the pressure plate hole and I am breaking a lot of needles. thank you


Is the needle in the center of the foot? If it is then you should adjust the plate. There should be a nut inside the bobbin case area under the plate that you can adjust the plate position with.

Needle hitting stitch plate on my Viking Lilly 545 recently had it serviced, was sewing fine


try a new needle
if the needle is still hitting the needle plate, then it's possible that the machine is out of time and needs to be adjusted, or there is something wrong with the needle bar.

Needle hitting plate and breaking thread


It sound as though the needle shaft is bent. Using a plyer to gently adjust the needle shaft so the needle hits the center of the opening it's supposed to go through. Test. If it continues to hit something after going below the plate then it could very well be a timing issue. Refer to your owners manual on timing related issues.

Keep breaking needles


Hello,
Here are some solutions to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.

Hope this helps.
