Question about Sewing Machines
I turned the machine on and started to sew. The needle hit the presser foot plate because it wasn't centered (Maybe I hit something accidentally?)

SOURCE: sewing with walking foot
Take the needle out and run the machine for a while with the walking foot fitted. Refit the needle and try again but only turn the machine over by hand to see if the problem has cleared. If no luck it sounds like the walking foot timing needs adjusting.

That sounds like it's definitely an internal adjustment. The machine will need to be opened up and the left/right adjustment taken care of. Is this machine one that you can open the top easily, or is it the type that has the front and rear shell?

Check the needle to make sure it is inserted with the flat side of the shaft toward the back of the machine.
Also, check to be sure the needle is not bent.
Remove the presser foot and see if the needle clears the opening in the needle plate and pulls up the bobbin thread.
If all of the above checks out, switch to a presser foot with a wider opening.
If not, the machine needs to be serviced as it may be the timing has to be adjusted.
Whenever you pick up a machine that has been serviced, try it out before taking it home.

Refer to your manual, it gives all sorts of reasons for the needle to break, wrong bobbin size, scratched plate, needle being inserted wrong. If, you do not have your manual go online to
brother-usa.com and download one for free.

Have you checked to see if the needle is bent. If it is replace the needles. If not you may have to remove the cover hiding the arm, lossen it up and ajust it straight by turning the manual nob slowly.
