Singer Touch & Sew 7462 - Needle hits bottom of bobbin case

The needle hits the bottom of the bobbin case and grinds against the metal. Also the bobbin won't thread. This happened after the material kept bunching.

    I have and old touch and sew 758 with the same problem. Needle is hitting metal around the bobbin case. What to do?

    I am having the same problem. Just bought the machine today. Thinking about returning it unless someone can tell me an easy fix. All the lights flash and long beep when it happens. Can't sew.

With the needle hitting the bobbin case , it sounds like it might be out of time. Which I am sorry to say is not an easy at-home fix.

Needle was hitting bobbin casing - reply was that the machine needs a hook timing adjustment - can I make this adjustment or do I need an expert?

Sounds like it's advanced.... but take it in and have it done professionally... have him lube and clean and check for cracked parts while you are at it.

I was sewing along with no problem and then all of a sudden it jammed. I can't move the needle up or down without a lot of force.

There is probably thread jammed in the raceway area, take out the bobbin case and raceway if it is a front load bobbin

Needle will not pick up the bobbin thread.

The first thing a person will say is that the machine is out of time. Thats very possible, but before you go to that extreme there are some other things you can check. Is the needle in all the way? Is the scarf in the needle facing the right side of the machine? Is it threaded correct?

New Problem...I have a Singer CG-550. When I try and sew anything, the needle hits something inside where the bobbin is. The little black casing holing the bobbin keeps moving all over the place, I slip...

On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

Machine No. K1831(256) No.28 how do you set up the stop motion wheel to wind bobbins. It either winds bobbins whilst sewing or just free wheels. I think there must be a way of adjusting this action....

Needle & Bobbin out of sync

This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.
