The needle is hitting the plate all of a sudden?


If it hit all of a sudden it most likely was your needle got bent. Replace needle and don't pull the material. Let the foot do the work.

Keep breaking needles when i put down presser foot to sew iwant to sew straight stich to hem a curtain


If the needle is hitting something, make sure you have the machine set for straight stitch and the needle is in the center position. If it is still hitting and breaking, then the machine is out of adjustment and needs to be repaired.

My needle keeps breaking as it is hitting the spool case, it seems as if somethings moved out of line ?


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, the machine is most likely out of time. Search the internet for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My left needle keeps breaking


Could be: Wrong needle size for fabric: The presser foot is not the correct one for the type of stitch you want to sew: The needle clamp screw is loose. Hope this helps.

How i use twin needel


Although your machine does come with a second spool pin to allow two spools of thread, it does not come with a button or setting for a twin needle. You can probably put one on, but I must caution you that you can only straight stitch on it, because if you try even a narrow zigzag, its likely that one of the two needles will hit the plate and break, and they are expensive.

If you want to try it, I can tell you that you need to buy a twin needle--preferably one with the two needles close together. Put one spool in its regular pin, and the other on the extra spool pin, and thread both threads exactly the same, and at the same time. You will not be able t use a needle threader--you will have to thread them by hand.

Needed breacks a lot


Machine breaks needles
1.make sure you are using the right needle for your type of sewing machine.
Most machines can use generic Schmetz needles. There are cases where the machine will only use ones specified in the owners manual.
2.the presser foot may not be installed properly
3.use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric.
4.let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
5.the needle is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop

New singer 8280 needle hits overcasting foot and breaks


so, it sews for a while?  It sounds to me like the screw that holds the needle in place is loose.  As the needle moves up and down the screw loosens until that one fateful stitch, it comes out completely.  Try to tighten with a screw driver.
the other possibility is that it breaks if you are sewing over a bulky seam, like a flat fell.  as the presser foot "toes up" to go over the lump, the needle hits and there you are.
holler if that doesn't help.

Top thread keeps breaking


I don't know for sure, but I have found that a dull needle will cause the thread to break. We have fixed many machines just by changing the needle. Try it, it may fix the problem.
