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: Model CG-550. Needle hits a bottom plate. All

Possible bent or wrong needle. If ok, check the zig-zag mechanism to see if it has come uncoupled from the needle mechanism. Good luck!

SOURCE: Singer Athena 2009 needle hitting plastic in bobbin case

here's something to check
is the needle inserted all the way in to the needle holder?
needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
is the needle clamp screw tight or loose?
if the needle is correctly in the needle holder & the needle clamp screw is tight --then the needle bar is out of time & need to be serviced
IF YOU DO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO BE SERVICED AFTER YOU GET IT HOME STOP RIGHT THEN & SEW ON THE MACHINE TO MAKE SURE THEY FIXED THE MACHINE & IT SEWS LIKE IT SUPPOSE TO, I HAD ONE CUSTOMER THAT TOOK THEIR MACHINE TO A SHOP & THEY CLEANED IT AGAIN & DIDN'T FIX IT BUT CHARGED THEM FOR IT & THEY BROUGHT IT TO ME TO FIX & IT HAD TO BE RETIME
did you get a instruction manual for the machine if not check at singer
Go to the singer website
Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu
Choose instruction manual
In the box type the model number---2009
Click search--if you don't see a manual--contact singer customer service

I have a Janome sewing machine. There is a problem when i try to draw up the bottom thread from the bobbin. The needle doesnt go through the hole to catch the thread at the bottom


Please elaborate. Is the needle hitting the needle plate so it cannot reach the bobbin thread, or is the needle simply not moving down into the lower position?

Problem with my bobbin case I'm sewing suddenly there clunking, my machine jams, bobbin case flipped 180. took apart, re-adjusted, put everything back and it worked fine, but it keeps happening. Help


Sounds like there are some parts that are worn or broken on your machine. A bobbin, when correctly inserted and latched, should not spin 180 degrees on its own.

Have you tried a brand new needle? Just wondering if it is bent and hitting below the needle plate.

Nylon tights became caught in the bobbin holder. After managing to release it the bobbin thread would not pick up. I removed the needle plate - it appears the needle is catching the bottom plate.


Try installing a brand new needle. It is easy to bend or damage the needle, which is why it is important to change the needle frequently.

If the new needle continues to hit, then the needle/hook timing is off. Take it for service.

Needle breaking


Is the needle all the way up? Are you sure it's actually hitting the bobbin? It MAY--and quite possibly IS--inserted too low in the needle clamp. Make absolutely sure that it's all the way up. Another factor can be your foot--make sure that it's properly inserted and tight, because it's probably hitting the foot and breaking--not the bobbin. In addition, it could be hitting the needle plate. You can determine WHERE it's breaking by manually turning the hand wheel--ALWAYS towards you--several times to see the position of your needle relative to the foot and needle plate.

Needle hitting bottom of bobbin area


Get a new needle first and try that. If that doesn't work, you're timing is likely fouled up and it needs a quick trip to the shop. (Seriously, that takes about 5 minutes to fix so depending on how busy the shop is you might be less than an minutes.) Also, don't let them recommend a bunch of other services. If you were so inclined and have a screwdriver handy, google "fix sewing machine timing" and you can tinker with it yourself but it's no guarantee.

check to make sure the needle is inserted correctly--flat side to the back of the machine
that the needle is inserted all the way up in the needle shaft

check the needle clamp screw to make sure it's not loose

is the needle correct for the fabric that's being sewn

check to make sure the needle is not hitting the needle plate- if it's hitting the needle plate or the bobbin case then it's possible the machine is out of time & would have to be serviced because they have the proper tools to time it

Singer machine 221(an old one made in 1935) worked perfectly. I decided to oil it. I took off the throat plate, took out the bobbin, cleaned and oiled..now the needle hits on the bobbin case and will not...


If you look at the bobbin area with the bobbin case out you will notice a finger that will be swinging around and will settle at bottom when the machine is setting on a table. This finger needs to be pointing straight up at the 12 o'clock position, in the slot in the bottom of the stitch plate. When you remove the plate, it swings down and you may not notice. Lift the plate and fit the finger into the slot between the two bumpers on the bottom of the plate and I'll bet it will sew again.

On the right of the black bobbin case there are two screws, you can slacken those screws off and move the bobbin case nearer to the guard leaving enough room for the thread to pass through, if the needle is hitting the bottom you may need to retime the machine.

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!!
