Providing you have a new needle in the correct way round if it does not pick up the tread you will need to take it in to get retimed.

You can check whether the alignment/timing has been affected fairly simply, as follows: Put a new needle in. Adjust the position of the needle fully to the left and try a straight sew-off ... if this works OK, but not when the needle is at centre, the timing is probably out. Drop the bobbin door and take the bobbin/bobbin case out. Turn the handwheel until the needle goes down into the stitch plate and just starts to come back up ... stop there. Carefully push the needle/needle-bar all the way to the right, so that the needle is nearly against the right-hand side of the slot in the stitch-plate. Lean the machine slightly back so that you can see clearly into the hook/shuttle area through the bobbin door. Release the hook/shuttle retainer by pressing the metal lever to the top-left side of the bobbin door. The black plastic hook/shuttle retainer should pop-open and you can carefully drop it down on its hinge to rest on the bobbin door. You can now see the hook/shuttle in its hook race and the pointed part of the hook should be to the left of the needle. Now, slowly rotate the handwheel so that the point of the hook continues to rotate clockwise until it just passes behind the needle. Look very carefully - the point of the hook/shuttle should be just above the top of the thread hole in the needle .... if it's below, or significantly above, the timing on your machine has been thrown-out by the needle breakage and will have to be professionally adjusted.

SOURCE: My Singer 6160's needle is hitting the bobbin plate.

first change the needle--flat side to the back of the machine, make sure the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle holder
make sure it's the correct needle for the machine
if the needle keeps hitting the bobbin plate then the machine may be out of time & would have to be take to a sewing machine shop for retiming.

My Singer Curvy sewing machine tension is not working. No matter what setting I set the dial to the tension never changes. There is none. My machines stitches look ok on top of the fabric, but bunch up...


try a new needle
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
rethread the machine top and bobbin
if these suggestions don't help, then the machine needs to be checked

Needle wont catch bobbin thread. Think timing is out.


First change your needle... it's probably bent and make sure you are using a needle FOR Denim in a size 18. Hand run the machine... if you still feel it hitting something... it is out of time. Take it in for repair.

SINGER CURVY: It jammed while sewing felt. Taking apart the bobbin area, I can see that the needle hits the bottom of the "floor". The bobbin is not catching or moving.


I think that your should try a new needle, it may be bent or have burr on it. It problem persists call Singer at 1-800-4singer, good luck
