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.

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!

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

In the box type the model number---2009
Click search--if you don't see a manual--contact singer customer service

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.
