Do you have your needle set on straight stich? Sometimes the needle is set either right or left not center. My Brother machine is like that. Try that, otherwise take it into Sears sewing department and ask a salesman for some help. Usually they are glad to help you and best of all it is free.

Needle not lined up with hole in presser foot


Is it also hitting the needle plate? if so then you need to move the arm the adjustment is internal and you\'ll have to disassemble the clam shell case of the machine. May be best to have a pro fix it for you.

My thread keeps breaking. bobbin thread seems to be alright, have changed thread, needle.


The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

I have a Merritt Singer 3130. Very suddenly, in the middle of sewing, my machine started making a loud "clunking" noise every time the needle went down. Now the whole shaft holding the needle...


You should take it in because it sounds like it is a bent needle shaft and before you cause more damage. Find out how much the service will be, and weigh it against buying a whole new machine.

My Kenmore stopped making stitches. I changed the needle recently to a Singer Universal regular point needles 100/16, but I dont believe that is different than what was in there before. I have a Model...


Why are you using #16 needle, that is very heavy duty? Did your machine pick up the bobbin thread correctly? Try a different needle, #11, (inserted facing away from you) is usually good. Make sure that you have decent thread and that it is the same weight top and bottom. Now rethread, with the presser foot up and when you have that done, with the presser foot stiil up, pull top & bottom thread, it should feed smoothly, now with the presser foot down, pull the thread, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. Put your top tension at 3 and see if that makes a difference.

Needle is hitting presser foot and the plate beneath - not lining up and I can't figure out how to do it.


Your needle is incorrectly inserted or bent. Try a new needle and use handwheel to see if it is lining correctly. Flat part of needle should face the back of the needle holder and be pushed well in.

My kenmore sewing machine needle is coming down on presser foot.


Check the needle to make sure it is inserted with the flat side of the shaft toward the back of the machine.

Also, check to be sure the needle is not bent.

Remove the presser foot and see if the needle clears the opening in the needle plate and pulls up the bobbin thread.

If all of the above checks out, switch to a presser foot with a wider opening.

If not, the machine needs to be serviced as it may be the timing has to be adjusted.

Whenever you pick up a machine that has been serviced, try it out before taking it home.

Can these needles be used with my sewing machine?


Don't know if this is helpful...but I have a very old Kenmore and 2 Brothers. I used the same needles with all 3 machines. No problems.

Kenmore sewing machine 385.1960180, problem with needle centering


That sounds like it's definitely an internal adjustment. The machine will need to be opened up and the left/right adjustment taken care of. Is this machine one that you can open the top easily, or is it the type that has the front and rear shell?
