How do i stop the needle from breaking?

One of the most common causes of needle breaking is you are pulling your fabric to fast through. Let the feed dog do the work. When fabric is pulled it bends the needle backwards and then the needle hits the plate...breaks.

Singer 5532 needle hitting plate how do I fix this

Welcome to sewing. First guess is the needle is loose or got bent. Remove the needle and roll it on a flat surface to look for bends. Although, it would need quite a bend to hit. Jeans require a 110 or larger needle. If the motor strains when crossing the heavy folded areas turn the wheel by hand - you will then know why the motor was straining. Also, sometimes multiple layers require using a seam ripper tool to unsew and then cut out excess layers. It all takes time and patients. Keep at it it's worth it. Consider downloading the manual and carefully review to make sure the machine is threaded right - common beginner mistake.

It breaks needles

Put a new needle in. Do not power up the machine. By hand rotate the needle down with the head laying on it's back. With a flashlight watch the needle come through the hole to determine what it is hitting. I've seen (in severe abuse cases) that the needle shaft is bent and the needle hits the bobbin case, instead of just coming down next to it. Use a plyer to carefully bend the shaft back to it's original position. Consew 226R-1 is an excellent machine.

Good Luck!

How do you thread the bottom bobbin?

Depends, it is a top load bobbon or does the bobbon go below the needle shaft. ???
Just remember that when you place the bobbon into the shuttle the tread always has to pull clockwise. So if you are holding the bobbon facing you the thread comes from the top to the right.
Lay the bobben into the shuttle making sure you pull the threads in a clock wise motion until you pull it under a metal point that looks like a flattened needle. This is also your bobben tension and then take your hand and turn the clutch wheel slowly. You will see the thread loop around the bobben thread and pull it up.

Make sure the needles are installed with the flat side facing the back of the machine.

Open the bobbin area and hand walk the needle down to see what it is hitting.

Check the bobbin case and shuttle to be sure they are in place.

Needles can also bend and break if they are too small for the thickness of the fabric.

Thread and bobben pattern for juki ddl 5550 machine keeps cutting bobben thread

Your bobbin case may be too tight. Try loosing it by turning the small screw a little turn to the left. If thats not it, you could also have a bend or snag in the bobbin case that is snapping the thread. If this is the case you will need to replace it.

My sewing machine needle is hitting the top of the needle plate

basically have to bend it carefully back by hand.... if you have a straight edge or even a small leveler (the kind with a bubble) you can check which direction it is bent and gently bend it back a little each time.
