Adjust the position of the needle and bobbin case. Remove the needle as well as the bobbin out. and adjust the tension of both and retread the needle and bobbin then check. The timing of needle is got bit slow due to low tension.
Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly, usually with the 
flat
 side away from the bobbin,
Clean the lint from your bobbin case
Lint in your bobbin case could be keeping your bobbin from working properly.
Check the needle hole in your throat plate for rough spots
A burr in the needle hole of your throat plate (usually caused by the needle hitting the throat 
plate)
 could be cutting your thread. Gently smooth any rough spot you find with an emery cloth.
Don’t pull your fabric as you sew
You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into 
the
 hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.
Check your needle plate
Make sure it's securely in position.
Change your needle plate
If you’ve been using a
 straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for 
sewing fine,
 delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.
Check the position of your needle
Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right,
 
left, or
 center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or 
pressure foot.

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hello,

Simply reset the bobbin and it will be in good condition again. That is by removing the thread, casing and reinstalling it. To reset;

First remove the thread that is inside the bobbing case, then you reinsert the thread into the needle, place the thread back into the bobbin case, then you adjust the control manually and gradually taking note of how it is hitting after then.

The machine will be in good condition again after resetting it,

Take care

Needle hitting bottom of bobbin area


Get a new needle first and try that. If that doesn't work, you're timing is likely fouled up and it needs a quick trip to the shop. (Seriously, that takes about 5 minutes to fix so depending on how busy the shop is you might be less than an minutes.) Also, don't let them recommend a bunch of other services. If you were so inclined and have a screwdriver handy, google "fix sewing machine timing" and you can tinker with it yourself but it's no guarantee.

How to adjust placment of twin needle so it doesnt hit edge of bobbin holder?


The needle should not hit the bobbin holder at all. Do you have the needle inserted all the way? If it is too low, it will hit. If you are saying the needle is hitting the sides of the needle plate where the needle goes through, then the needle is too wide for the plate. Either use a narrower twin needle or see is a needle plate with a wider needle hole came with your machine. Some decorative stitches can't be used with a twin needle because the combination of width of stitches and width of needle is too wide. In that case, narrow the stitch width until the needle doesn't hit the needle plate or use a narrower twin needle. I hope I have helped and answered some of your questions. Good luck.

I volunteer at a women's prison in their sewing class and we have model 385-16231301. The bobbin thread does not pick up. The bobin case seems to sit in their properly, but when I turn it manually...


check the needle to make sure that it's inserted correctly, the flat side of the needle goes to the back of the machine,, and make sure the needle goes all the way up into the needle cavity .

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted

clean under the needle plate area & in bobbin area for loose threads or lint

if none of the above work & the needle is still hitting something then it 's a great possibility it's out of time & needs to be serviced, cause the needle should not be hitting anything when it goes down.

My needle keeps hitting the plate and breaking. How do I fix this?


Take the needle plate off and see where it needle is connecting with the bobbin. The bobbin case may not be in place and this is what the needle is hitting.

Bobbin holder seems to be broke and needle breaks


Hello,
Here are several things to try.

* When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.


If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:

* Check your pressure foot and make sure it’s attached securely.


* Change your pressure foot Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.


* Don’t sew over pins a needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.


* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew. You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.


* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in position.


* Change your needle plate. If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.


* Check the position of your needle. Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.


* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin. There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.

Also, before you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

I hope these solutions help you.

Bobbin problems


Any time you have looping on the bottom, it is almost always related to the upper tension and not anything in the bobbin area.
A good way to troubleshoot this is to turn the machine off, blow out the upper tension disk assemblies with canned air, (the machine needs to be off because most canned air uses butane as a propellant. Butane + electricity = bad;) replace your needle, and rethread your machine. Once you've threaded it to the point where you're about to put the thread through the needle, "floss" the thread forward and backward to ensure that the thread seats correctly into the tension assemblies.
Set your tension to around 4.5 for most applications, and drop your presser foot. Give the thread a gentle tug to see if the tensions have engaged the thread, then thread the needle.

If doing this does not address the problem, you probably need to have your tensions professionally calibrated. This is also true if the needle is in fact hitting something in the bobbin area. This is usually caused by the machine's timing being out of alignment, which is not something that can be fixed at home.

Good luck,

Needle is hitting the round , turning case that revolves around the bobbin


It sounds like your timing is off because what you're describing is exactly what happened to me last summer. I took it to a sewing machine repair shop and they repaired the problems, gave it a nice cleaning and it was like new when it came home. But it took two weeks (not a lot of repair shops around here) and that was torture as it's my only machine!!! :)
