Needle breaking, hitting bobbin case

I got a piece of material jammed in the bobbin case(I was working with the bobbin case open) and it pulled the bobbin case out of alignment so the needle breaks every time it goes down. Any way to fix it on my own?

    I think I have the same problem. I have a Brother xl 2600. I kept breaking needles and it looks like the hit the metal plate. I took it apart to clean. I took out the bobbin case to clean under it and put it back. I put everything back together and tried to sew again. We now it still wants to hit on the back of the needle and the bobbin thread gets all tangled up. What did I do and how do I fix it. HELP PLEASE!

I had this problem and it is very easy to fix!
With mine I looked at it for about half an hour, and all I needed to do was put the bobbin case back in,(how it fits normally) and then hold it and turn it anti clockwise until it clicks, it may be quite pressured to do but ive heard a lot of people having this problem and thats all that needed doing!
Hope i helped! :)

    I live in Medellin Colombia. Three trips to the authorized Brother dealer and they couldn't fix it correctly. Now it works perfectly. Thank you.

Why doesn't the machine pick up the bobbin?


You may have fuzz in your bobbin case or under the plate. If you have canned air, spray it out. Are you using a pre-wound bobbin or one you wound yourself. I've found pre-wounds to be the best. Make sure your thread is pulled thru the bobbin case correctly and your needle up top is threaded correctly too. It's real easy to miss either one. Also, be sure to use a good backing when using fuzzy fabric. What size needle are you using. Too small of a needle may cause this also. For standard embroidery or sewing usually use an 11. Hope maybe this will help. Kindest regards,
Jody

How do i stop the needle from breaking?


One of the most common causes of needle breaking is you are pulling your fabric to fast through. Let the feed dog do the work. When fabric is pulled it bends the needle backwards and then the needle hits the plate...breaks.

Messages about safe device activated & press the needle position button


The noise is because the machine is trying to raise or lower a needle and can't move. Several things to check. Did the needle break and jam in the bottom thread? Is the needle bent or jam? Did the thread jam in the bobbin area? I had a 'knot' of thread build up on the bottom and it hooked itself into the metal clip on the bobbin so that the needle couldn't raise. If thread jams in the bottom carefully cut the threads until you can free the hoop and material. Then check to make sure all pieces of thread and fuzz has been removed in the bobbin case. If it happens again check to see if the bobbin case or the throat plate is scratched or bent. If you are stitching Free Standing Lace on this machine or a piece with over 20,000 stitches I recommend starting with a new full bobbin and a new needle. As you get toward the bottom of the bobbin, thread seems to have a high likelihood of tangling or looping.

The needle keeps breaking in my Yamata FY 910


The bobbin case rests on the lip of the hook and is is held into place by the position bracket. The position bracket is located at about 5 o'clock and has a small square end with a buffer spring. It must be positioned to hold the bobbin case securely and also allow the thread to pass through freely. It may be out of adjustment but may not.

If the bobbin case has turned, it is very likely to have suffered damage as it is made of a soft carbon fiber material. It not polished off, these damaged areas can snag the thread and jam the machine and create tension problems. Some gouges, burrs and needle punctures can be carefully sanded but you may need a new bobbin case. Use a 1500 grit sandpaper to smooth off the rough edges.

I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.

Needle hits the plate that is over the bobbin.


If possible hoop the item. I have found that any item that has any thickness causes the presser foot to be pushed forward and the needle hits it and breaks. If you can press the item to lessen the thickness this may help. I spoke to Singer (I am a Singer dealer) and they did not have any help for this other than to recommend that the owner cut out the back of the foot. I don't think that would be a solution as it would be difficult to cut out the back of the foot and still have smooth edges, also it would cause the foot to be weak and possible break or bend. Good Luck

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.
