Needle stuck I replaced a broken needle. But now, it seems, the needle gets jammed in the bobbin mechanism and won't go through an entire revolution. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for your advice. I was afraid it was going to be something like that. But that's what trained mechanics are for. Thanks again!

It sounds like your machine is out of time. What this means is the hook that grabs the thread from the needle is not coming around at the proper time. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, have a trained mechanic look at your machine. Timing a sewing machine is not something that can be easily explained over the Internet.

If it is stuck in the bobbin mechanism, you can remove the bobbin case to extract it. You probably should find and remove the broken piece because it can cause severe damage to your machine. I've actually picked my machine up and shook it to find the broken needle. Sometimes it drops straight through and is actually setting under the machine.

Sewing machines will get out of time, often as a result of broken needle. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service, otherwise it will simply continue to break needles and possibly damage the machine.

It is likely the the bobbin holder is jammed up with cloth or thread. Take the bobbin holder out and turn the machine by hand, if it does not move it could have a broken timing belt or slipping coupling.

Check the manual for maintenance infromation.

Noise can be from lint in the bobbin area.

After cleaning, re-thread the machine with the presser foot up to see the combination of cleaning and "presser foot up" threading helps.

Did you find the broken bit of the needle ?
It may be jamming the bobbin case area and hook. Remove the needleplate and bobbin case and clean it all out then report back with progress.

The bobbin is getting caught and needle is jamming


This sounds like there is cotton stuck in the bobbin holder. Check it thoroughly. Take the bobbin out and turn the wheel to lower the needle a few times. This will show up any thread caught. Pull it out gently. You may have to perservere to get it all out.

Needle Sticks - Huskystar E10


When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.

Needle & Bobbin out of sync


This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.
