Either the needle is not far enough up in the holder or the bobbin is in upside down. Most likely it's the bobbin.

When my needle goes down into where bobbin is held,the needle hits the bobbin case.


Hello Marketa
Check that the correct system of needle is being used in the sewing machine.
Unscrew needle screw, make sure that the needle is pushed all the way up, tighten needle in place.
Check if needle is still hitting bobbin case.
If still hitting: remove bobbin case and insert again making sure that it is positioned correctly.
If problem still persists, please let me know the make and model of your sewing machine.
Please give me a 'thumbs up' if this was useful.
Happy Stitching

Set needle bar height on Futura 900 sewing machine


Um, it most likely is not a problem with the needle bar height but instead an issue with machine timing, ie the needle is arriving at the bobbin at the wrong time. This happens frequently when the needle hits a pin or a dense piece of fabric, deflects the needle, which hits the bobbin mechanism, and the bobbin is out of time. BE SURE you're using a brand new needle--you may even try a couple of new needles because sometimes they are defective out of the package. If the needle is defective (bent, has a burr, etc.) it could also be the problem.

You can search the internet for articles and videos discussing sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Needle breaking


Is the needle all the way up? Are you sure it's actually hitting the bobbin? It MAY--and quite possibly IS--inserted too low in the needle clamp. Make absolutely sure that it's all the way up. Another factor can be your foot--make sure that it's properly inserted and tight, because it's probably hitting the foot and breaking--not the bobbin. In addition, it could be hitting the needle plate. You can determine WHERE it's breaking by manually turning the hand wheel--ALWAYS towards you--several times to see the position of your needle relative to the foot and needle plate.

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.

My Singer 6160's needle is hitting the bobbin plate.


first change the needle--flat side to the back of the machine, make sure the needle is inserted all the way up into the needle holder
make sure it's the correct needle for the machine
if the needle keeps hitting the bobbin plate then the machine may be out of time & would have to be take to a sewing machine shop for retiming.

Needle hits bobbin case


If the needle hits the bobbin case the are only 2 things that could be wrong. Lets hope its the easy one, there are more than one length of needles, if the needle is to long or it is not all the way up in the neelde bar, the needle will hit the inside of the bobbin case. Now if that is not the problem then the machine is out of time. ALWAYS check the easy stuff FIRST.

My DB2-B797 suddenly has needle breaking because needle is hitting bobbin. I need help with technical specs and needle positioning. PLEASE


Hi
First thing to check is are you using the correct needle, if it is too long this will hit the bobbin holder.
If the needle is the correct one, for some reason your timing is out or the needle bar has dropped lower than it should be.
I can't explain on here how to re-time as it is complicated.
If the timing is out it is very unusual as the working parts are locked in position.
Take out the thread, remove the needle plate and turn the machine over by hand watching the needle and see if it is actually hitting the bobbin or bobbin holder.

Timing the needle


That isn't the timing. If the hook is hitting the needle the hook is too far left - or close to the needle. It's adjustable by loosening the set screw at the base of the hook and by gently tapping the hook away from the needle. You want the hook to be close enough to the needle to pick up the thread loop that's formed just as the needle bar is rising.
