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: Janome Needle plate and needles hitting something underneath

The broken pins are called chaining pins and are tricky for the home user to replace without risking damage to the needle plate as they are difficult to remove and the tiny burr used to hold them firm can easily open up and no longer grip the pin.
There are only a couple of things under the needleplate that are likely to collide with the needles. 1. Lower looper - with the needles 2. Both Loopers colliding with each other - not with the needles 3. Needle guards attached to lower looper - with the needles 4. Fixed Needle guard - with the needles
If you remove the needleplate and VERY gently turn the handwheel you should be able to see and feel where the collision is occuring and have a better idea of the issue.
I would strongly advise that you do not try to operate the machine until you are sure that the colliding components are adjusted. Broken loopers are approx $65 AUD and guards, tho' only about $20 AUD require some finesse in adjustment. Chain Pins approx $6 AUD
My recommendation is to speak with your local Janome dealer for advice and an approximate price to repair, replace or adjust as the case may be.
Your country's Janome website is certain to have a Dealer Locator page to list the nearest to you.
This is one occasion where it is sensible to call on the people who do these things routinely rather than try to DIY and make a more expensive hash of it.

SOURCE: My sewing machine needle is hitting the top of the needle plate

basically have to bend it carefully back by hand.... if you have a straight edge or even a small leveler (the kind with a bubble) you can check which direction it is bent and gently bend it back a little each time.

SOURCE: needle seems to be hitting the plate and sounds

First you should try a new set of needles. It is very common to bend needles in a serger.
I don't recommend that you ask a Husqvarna technician to align the sewing head since there is no sewing head alignment in a 900 series Huskylock ( or any Huskylock that I know of). The upper adjustments are needle bar height and needle bar twist. As long as the needles appear to set side by side, you probably have no twist so this isn't causing the needle to hit. Do remember that the needles appear to be different lengths. This is normal.
Remove the plate and see if the needles are hitting something else underneath.

But always, ALWAYS change the needles first. They're cheap, easy and fast.

The neddle is hitting the medal instead of going in how do I adjust this problem on a brother es 2000 machine


Check to see if the needle is bent. If that is not the case you need to adjust the needle position on the needle bar. This may be something that you want to have a technician do, so you don't change the timing on the machine.

Needle hitting the metal spool housing underneath, mis-timing?


the timing has, gone there is a screw holding the spool carrage on to the shaft lossen this a little so that it still grips but will turn, the neddle should pass the point on the spool case just after the eye comes level with the spool point and hence pick up the lower cotton and just miss the spool case, after re timing turn over by hand to ensure nothing is hitting anything else.

Neddle screw wont tighten neddle in


There is a small metal rod about 1/2" long that fits into the hold in front of the screw that holds the needle secure. I didn't realize that I had dropped the rod until I could not tighten the needle. I found the rod, put it into the hole and was able to tighen the needle.

Neddle hitting the bobbon


does the hook assembly move when you turn the handwheel? If no, then your hook drive gears are shot.

Needle getes broken


Check to see if your needle plate is gouged or signs that the needle is hitting the plate. If so, you may be pulling a little too hard when the fabric is feeding. Sometimes when you pull too hard, it pulls the needle back and it will hit the plate instead of going into the needle hole and you will break needles. Try just letting the fabric feed itself and you simply guide it to make sure it stays in a straight line.
