SOURCE: Needle hitting bobbin plate

Is the needle inserted correctly with the flat side at the rear and fully up into the holder ?

If yes, take off the needleplate, remove bobbin case and slowly rotate the handwheel towards you watching the relationship between needle, and the "hook" of the moving "race".

Set on wide zig zag........when the needle is fractionally past it's lowest point, and starting to rise, the hook should be level with the left side of the needle when on the right hand stitch of the zig...the eye of the needle will be below the hook, and ready for thread to be picked up for the stitch to form.

Any other result will mean your timing needs adjusting.

SOURCE: needle keeps hitting the plate

That sounds bad, simple thing to check: does it have a straight stitch needle plate on it that is causing this to happen when you use a zig zag stitch?

Or is the foot on it the right one for the machine? It certainly should not be breaking needles like that so something is either out of alignment, timing is out or some item has been incorrectly fitted.

Check to see if plate is damaged or needle is bent. Could be wrong needle style for the type of work you are doing.

My needle keeps hitting the metal plate, and its a brand new needle. It seems like the alignment of my brand new machine is off. Basically, the needle keeps hitting the metal plate where the bobbin is, and...


Check whether the needle is installed correctly - maybe it's turned around from machines you are used to. Also verify that the needle plate is installed correctly, not upside down (may be possible on some machines). If the needle and plate are installed correctly, then something is out of line, and you're owed a free adjustment or repair from the manufacturer.

I know how to attach my ruffler foot but my needle keeps hitting the plate .what do I need to adjust to keep the needle from hitting the foot


You may need to move the needle position left or right. Try a different stitch length. If the ruffler foot is installed correctly and needle is in the correct position this should not happen. It is hitting left/right/forward or back of the ruffler needle space?

The right needle on my babylock keep breaking


Perhaps the needle is not fully pushed in or not tight in the holder or has the needle plate moved and the needle is now hitting it? A bent needle will break as it hits the plate but apart from that I cannot imagine what is causing this.

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

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 needle keeps hitting the throatplate, (I have broken 2). It was working fine. I don't know what I have done to cause this! e.


Hello,

First, check the position of your needle.Machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle left, right,or center. If your needle is not in the correct position, it may be hitting your needle plate. If that doesn't work,change your needle plate.
If you've been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

I hope this helps.

My needle keeps hitting the plate and breaking. How do I fix this?


Take the needle plate off and see where it needle is connecting with the bobbin. The bobbin case may not be in place and this is what the needle is hitting.

Keep breaking needles


Hello,
Here are some solutions to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.

Hope this helps.

My PE 100 keeps breaking needles, they are striking something during use.


    Hello,
    Here are some things to try.

    * Your broken needles may have been too thin for your fabric. Make sure your replacement needle
    is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric and thread. You may also need a thicker needle if you’re sewing through bulky layers of fabric.

    * When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side
    away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and
    that the screw is securely tightened.


    If this doesn’t seem to be the problem

    * Check your pressure foot
    Make sure it’s attached securely.

    * Change your pressure foot
    Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.

    * Don’t sew over pins

Needle hits the plate


Remove your needle plate, clean around it, turn the handwheel to see if the hook will catch your thread(Like you are trying to bring up the bobbin thread). If it catches okay, put the plate back on and as you tighten the screw push the plate towards the rear of the machine. Reassemble everything, rethread , insert a bobbin and try it by turning the handwheel again. If it still hits, you need a service. If it doesn't, have fun!!
