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

Can't get the needle plate back on sinner 8780


I have a feeling that your bobbin case is not properly seated, and it's easy to do. If it isn't, it will prevent the needle plate from seating properly.

There is a pointed part on your case at about 5 o'clock that must be resting against a spring in the same position. In addition, take a look at it visually; it is easy to put it in so it is slightly lopsided. (How would I know that?) Make sure all four sides are evenly resting in the bobbin basket (holds the bobbin case). I find it easier to insert it so that it is slightly clockwise of it's proper location, then turn it counterclockwise into place.

Also, download (free) your user's manual from the Singer site; it is pictured on page 80.

My needle is hitting the metal plate on a singer cg590 sewing machine. Is there a way to adjust it back into its correct position?


Your needle plate may have been place incorrectly, and it's easy to do. Even the slightest variation can cause the needle to hit it. Try taking the metal plate off and then reseating it -- testing the needle position before you tighten the screws.

How can I get the needle plate back on my singer Curvy sewing machine model 8763?


If it fit when you took it off, but you're having trouble putting it back on again, chances are you haven't put your bobbin case in correctly--that's why it won't fit. Review the placement of the case in your user's manual; if you can't locate it, you can download one free at the Singer Sewing Machine site.

Singer 8734 machine. The needle sounds and looks like it is nipping the front edge of the needle plate. How can I adjust it more back towards center of slot in plate?


See if you can just turn the plate half way around after thread is through it. Could be the wrong plate for that machine. Sounds like machine could have been dropped in the past and knocked it off center if it is the proper plate.

How do I replace the slide plate on my Singer 416?


Lift the sewing machine pressure foot and make sure the needle is not in the way. Slide the plate under the foot control. Use a flat head screw driver to lift the spring back onto the plate then slide it back.

Just purchased a Singer Inspiration model 4205. Seems as if the feed dogs do not align properly with the holes in the needle plate causing the plate to move up and down as the feed dogs move.


Take it back where you bought and have them show you how to do it. Or, see is you can tighten the needle plate yourself, If, you can't call Singer (1-800-4singer) and find out where the authorized service center is. You should not have to pay anything with it being new. Good luck

How do i put the bobbin case back in correctly?


The zigzag setting should not have caused it to jam up unless the tensions were off and the thread was bunching up on the bottomside of the needle plate. If you ever jam or break a needle be sure to replace it with a fresh new needle. A slightly bent needle will cause all kinds of problems.
When putting the bobbin back in make sure you keep a good amount of thread hanging out and manually turn the hand wheel around until the needle make a full rotation. The hook should catch the needle thread and allow you to pull the bobbin thread out through the needle plate.
If you jammed it really good it is possible that the needle and hook timing is out of sync in which case you may need to have it re-timed.
