If the machine is new from a reputable dealer, they should fix it for free under warrantee.

It sounds like the position of the needle arm swing needs adjusting......my guess is that is off centre and while one side hits the needle plate, the other does not....this is not a serious or difficult problem to fix.

Quick check is to set straight stitch and look at the "centredness" of the needle relative to the foot and presser bar, it will probably look slightly to one side....it may only be a mm or two, but this can be enough.

A quick call to the dealer to explain and you should be sorted. I would not recommend attempting any home remedy on a machine that is in warrantee as it will void the agreement and if something serious goes wrong in the first 12 mths, you will have no recourse.

I know how to attach my ruffler foot but my needle keeps hitting the plate .what do I need to adjust to keep the needle from hitting the foot


You may need to move the needle position left or right. Try a different stitch length. If the ruffler foot is installed correctly and needle is in the correct position this should not happen. It is hitting left/right/forward or back of the ruffler needle space?

I have a Kenmore model 1690. The needle when it goes down does not hit the hole in the foot plate. It comes down too far to the left of the opening, making it impossible to use the machine. I have...


This machine, when you have it on straight stitch, will sew with the needle to the left. If it's hitting the pressure foot, you may have the wrong pressure foot on the machine. If it's hitting the needle plate when you have the pressure foot removed, it's possible you have set for zig zag and you have a straight stitch needle plate on the machine. I believe this machine came with 2 needle plates. One for straight stitch, and another for zig zag.

Breaking needle


Sounds like the timing is off, have to take foot off, take plate off, put it in the zz position and using the hand wheel turn(with new needle in) and see where it is hitting feed dog, loosening the screws to the feed dog and moving it in the opposite direction out of the way so as not to hit. let me know how that works
