The bobbin case catches the needle and the thread wraps around the bobbin case

If you are saying the needle is hitting the bobbin case when it goes down then it could be one of two things:

1. Bobbin case not all the way in. This can be caused by debris in the rotary hook or the bobbin case has been hit by the needle and has cracked/and or bent it. Make sure it is snapping into place correctly.
2. The rotary hook is out of time. Reset the rotary hook point behind the needle and about the middle of the scarf of the needle. Make sure you run the needle all the way down and as it starts back up this is where you set the hook.

My needle is hitting the hook race when it lowers. It seems to be a going down a couple mm lower than it should be. I am using a Singer 9920. Any fixya tips out there?

Suggest that you check your needle to make sure it is lock fully up into the needle holder. If your needle is correctly installed, then it should be a needle/hook timing problem. Or if your rotary hook can be turn freely with your finger, it also indicates belting/gear problem. Do get your local technician to fix it.

I have a Singer 7426. The needle is hitting the hook area incorrectly, making a jerking motion with the needle along with a tapping noise. Any idea how to correct it?

the needle probable is bent-has to be replaced so it won't damage the needle bar
if the needle is hitting the needle plate then it needs to be check for burrs, small burrs can snag the fabric

Singer sewing machine Merrit. Needle is hitting something and not going into hole

turn the machine slowly by hand as the needle goes down check it does not hit the foot ,then the hole of the plate.
If it enters the hole and then stops aganst something it is possible the shuttle or bobbin is not in right take them out and replace them again.if the problem prisists take the needle plate off and warch as the needle goes down what it is hitting.
if the hook or shuttle is in the way the timming could be out.
