Take the needle plate off and turn the needle up and down by hand while watching to see if it is hitting anything. The hook timing could be off.

SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

SOURCE: Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only

I have the Singer Touch Tronic 2001. I bought it used for $50. It has the manual and all the parts. However, the manual refers to lifting the top console to access the stitch width selector dial and to change the pattern selector discs. I cannot seem to lift this console up even the manual says that it is hinged for easy access to these parts. Can anyone describe how to lift the console up? Or send a picture or video of this process?

Most appreciated!

Singer CG500 Needle hits the needle plate. Needle was replaced. Verified needle in correctly. Tried hand wheel - still hits. Machine has yet to be used!!


Unless you need all the bells and whistles to sew get you a pre-1930 treadle or handcrank. I have 2 electric Singers, 1947 model 66 and 1948 201-2 both with attachments. Also I have 1903 Singer handcrank made in Scotland. The plastic new one just don't have the ability to hang in there .... All my pre 1930 Singers sew... I love them!

Singer 2263 needle hitting something in bobbin area (loud thunk) and needle moves


try taking the bobbin out and putting it back in the bobbin
case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then
it sounds like the sewing machine could have a timing
problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Needle hitting the shuttle


since you were sewing harder material it's possible that the
machine jumped time & needs to be checked at a sewing machine
shop
but try putting in a new needle first
if it still is hitting the shuttle then it needs to be checked.

My singer sewing machine 7430 keeps acting like its catching on something when you turn the handwheel. Also, while sewing all of a sudden the needle hit the plate and broke x2


Your machine sounds like it needs retiming unless you are using a needle bigger than a size 16, I can attach instructions if you want to do it yourself.

Singer 7442 Needle seems 2b 2 long.Hits something below


I strongly recommend you desist from using the sewing machine on a levis. It could be that the capacity is not for that thick material like levis.

I had similar problem till I had to take it in for repairs because mine was discovered to have had a shift in the footer below the needle compartment where the clothes are been laid before sewing.

Look closely at the footer.

Good luck dear.

I care so much.
