A bent needle will hit the metal. If it continues you will need to adjust the needle carrier. hopefully that isn't bent, but if so I don't believe that the replacement of it will be too costly.

Simplicity sewing machine SL 9240 was giving to me and when I try to sew the needle keeping hitting the bobbin holderr.


On the right side you have two knobs to make adjustments. The lower knob will move the needle left or right so it won't hit the bobbin holder.

Singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves


try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

How do i adjust bobbin tension on singer 4210


Open bobbin area and look at your bobbin carrier for a tiny metal screw that holds down a metal piece to the plastic carrier. Tighten the screw. Be careful though...the plastic can strip.

My old Singer sewing machine won't pick up the bobbin thread. It is threaded properly and goes down to pick up the bobbin thread, but comes up with no bobbin thread. What to do please?


Hi, try re-timing the machine. Select "straight stitch," then take the bottom off the machine to see underneath the bobbin case area. Open the faceplate and look for two marks on the needle bar around where it enters the machine. Take out the bobbin case to see the hook. Turn the balance wheel toward you so the needle is going down. Stop turning when the needle is just about to start on its way up. The bottom mark on the needle bar should be just about to enter the machine, and the point of the hook should be just above the eye of the needle. If it isn't, tilt the machine backward and loosen the two screws on the vertical gear so you can move the hook to where it should be. Tighten the screws and put everything back so you can test your setup. If it sews a straight stitch correctly, try it on zigzag wide stitch. If it misses one side, repeat the timing process.

Make sure the needles are installed with the flat side facing the back of the machine.

Open the bobbin area and hand walk the needle down to see what it is hitting.

Check the bobbin case and shuttle to be sure they are in place.

Needles can also bend and break if they are too small for the thickness of the fabric.

Bobbin not turning, possible motor/gear issue?


You have a broken vertical shaft gear. It's very easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. The gear can be purchased for between $8-14 from a sewing repair store and I can walk you through the process.

Breaks needle


Yes they can indeed go out of time and breaking needles is the most likely cause. To solve timing problems you will need a sewing machine engineer though. The part which needs adjusting would be the area above the needle-the needlebar but it is a fiddly affair only to be attembed by someone who can repair sewing machines. It is also a fairly expensive repair as it is very time consuming. However-don't assume it is that. Firstly make sure the new needle is in correctly-the most common cause of problems is needles in wrong direction! If bobbin opens at front then the flat part of the needle faces the back. If bobbin area opens at side then the flat side of needle faces the body of the machine to the right. Check needleplate for damage so that new needle does not catch. File it smooth if you need to! Check you are using a good quality thread as cheap thread causes no end of problems. Guuterman is the best I found.
