Totally happened to me last week. I discovered that the metal piece that fell off and holds the needle has a small screw that holds it in place. It needs an Allen wrench (tiny one) to tighten it back into place. I just lucked into figuring it out.

The needle holder has a screw right above the screw that holds the needle in place. It really doesn't look like a screw because it does not appear to have a slot for a screwdriver. However, with a small flat head screw driver you can tighten it up. There is also a curverd wire that must be inserted into a slot at the bottom of the holder. The screw tightens against the wire that tightens against the post. (It's a curved wire that curves around the front part). The above info that was previously posted was almost dead on for me. The screw spoken about is called a set screw, which is a screw that is almost hollow. To lossen or tighten a set screw you use an allen wrench. The one on this machine is 5/64 th size. You can use a very small screwdriver if it fits tightly, but you must be careful not to strip the inside of the screw.

This sounds like your metal plate needs adjustment. Loosen the screws and adjust it until the needle goes all the way down. If that doesnt work, ensure that your bobbin case has been aligned properly.
