SOURCE: Janome Needle plate and needles hitting something underneath

The broken pins are called chaining pins and are tricky for the home user to replace without risking damage to the needle plate as they are difficult to remove and the tiny burr used to hold them firm can easily open up and no longer grip the pin.
There are only a couple of things under the needleplate that are likely to collide with the needles. 1. Lower looper - with the needles 2. Both Loopers colliding with each other - not with the needles 3. Needle guards attached to lower looper - with the needles 4. Fixed Needle guard - with the needles
If you remove the needleplate and VERY gently turn the handwheel you should be able to see and feel where the collision is occuring and have a better idea of the issue.
I would strongly advise that you do not try to operate the machine until you are sure that the colliding components are adjusted. Broken loopers are approx $65 AUD and guards, tho' only about $20 AUD require some finesse in adjustment. Chain Pins approx $6 AUD
My recommendation is to speak with your local Janome dealer for advice and an approximate price to repair, replace or adjust as the case may be.
Your country's Janome website is certain to have a Dealer Locator page to list the nearest to you.
This is one occasion where it is sensible to call on the people who do these things routinely rather than try to DIY and make a more expensive hash of it.

Pixie plus sewing machine needle does not go down into the bobbin but hits the metal plate on top of the bobbin. The needle cannot go through the sewing slot.


Sounds like your needle is set to off-center. Check your manual. You may have a straight-stitch plate in your machine but you have it set to stitch off center or it is set to zig-zag stitch and the needle is unable to clear the stitch plate.

When trying to put the needle in the far left position an error or fix it pops up


I think the needle mechanism is out of adjustment. In the center position, is the needle centered over the hole in the needle plate (check with a plate that has the single hole for straight stiching, not the slotted hole for zig-zag sewing). Take it to a professional for a tune up.

Broken feeder plate


It would be called a Needle plate or Throat plate. Good luck finding them, I've never seen anything in the domestic machines... and industrial machines are just as difficult to find. Check with whomever you purchased it from. Perhaps they can direct you to a parts place.

No matter how small or large my needle is, it breaks frequently. It is as if it does not always move straight up and down because it slams into the "plate" which is now all rough. I purchased my machine...


Seems as though the needle bar may be bent check this by turning the machine by hand, without a needle, if there are tight spots, then the bar may be bent. Try a thinner needle and go threough the sew cycle by hand, this can tell you a lot.
The thread is snapping because of all the needle breakages making the hole in the needle plate full of sharp edges, get rid of these by removing the needle plate and using strips of fine wet'n'dry paper to smooth them down. aceck the bobbin case for sharp notches too.
Get the timing fixed and your machine should be working ok

Needle getes broken


Check to see if your needle plate is gouged or signs that the needle is hitting the plate. If so, you may be pulling a little too hard when the fabric is feeding. Sometimes when you pull too hard, it pulls the needle back and it will hit the plate instead of going into the needle hole and you will break needles. Try just letting the fabric feed itself and you simply guide it to make sure it stays in a straight line.
