Hi Nancy:

1. Your needle is now damaged. Replace it.

2. When you replace your needle make sure it is completely all the way in and the screw is tightened well.

3. Make sure your needle is adequate for the type of fabric and thread you are sewing. Heavy fabrics for instance need a strong needle... knits need a ball point... etc.

I have a Husqvarna Optima 120 The needles are being bent forward at the bottom. They start hitting the metal foot/feed dog and snapping. What does the knob on the far left end of the machine do?


First, check that you are installing the needle correctly. The needle has a flat part and it is important that the flat part be installed facing the correct direction. Inserting it incorrectly will offset the needle position and cause the needle to strike. (Be Careful--flying broken needles can be dangerous--for you and your machine! Wear eye protection.)

If the needle is hitting the presser foot, you might try a different foot. The one you are currently using could be damaged or may not be made for your machine.

If you are sewing thick materials, be sure you are using a heavier needle made for leather or denim. The heavier needle is less likely to bend as it pierces the fabric. (Likewise, you will probably want to use a heavier thread as well.)

Also, be sure that you are NOT pulling or pushing the fabric through the machine. That will frequently cause the needle to bend and strike.

The knob on the left may be the presser foot pressure adjustment. It is adjusted to increase or decrease the presser foot pressure on the feed dogs in order to better feed heavier- or lighter-weight fabrics through the machine.

Model 930.Why is presser foot not lined up correctly?


Is your needle position centered? The round dial on the top right is a combination zig-zag stitch width selector and the center silver dial selects the needle position. If it is pointed at the #2, then the needle should be centered and something (probably the needle bar) has been knocked out of alignment on your machine (which would probably mean repair service).

Also, if the needle is hitting the presser foot, you probably have a straight stitch foot on your machine which requires the needle be centered. To do any decorative or zig-zag stitching, the presser foot needs to have a wide space for the needle to swing back and forth. The zig-zag foot is marked with a zero.

Needle hitting pressor foot


Presser foot not correctly mounted, or needle bent, or needle bar loose or bent are the most likely.

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.

Needle not aligned with hole in presser foot


Hi if the needle is hitting the needle plate you best get in touch with who you bought it from, The needle position is a critical adjustment and is done in conjunction with other adjustments.

Remove bobbin, presser foot, needle. Tip machine back on towel gently. Unscrew plate--don't lose screws! Do not service in presence of children and curious pets. Put foot pedal next to you on tabletop. Use Zoom Sewing Machine oil. Any part MOVING that are NOT gears get one drop oil. Any DRY ONLY gears get dab of Singer sewing machine lubricant. Replace screws. Secure screws. Open left front compartment & one drop oil @ top of needle bar. Open race shuttle (where bobbin case fits in). One-half drop oil of on oscillating hook (bottom left - hand corner...smear that oil around! Insert NEW needle all way UP in needle bar groove, flat needle shank toward back. Turn handwheel towards you and raise. Raise presser foot so that threading locates all tension slots a's you pull thread TAUT from spool to each tension slot and left to right through silver, metal take-up lever, and down to tension bracket, pass needle, then pull 6" thread towards you and thread from FRONT to BACK of needle. Place bobbin into case and "thread" it. Set presser foot on DOWN position. Turn handwh towards you, dipping needle into needle plate. Make loop with bobbin thread, pull towards you. Place a good 7" underneath presser foot (both threads). Let machine RUN on 24" scrap to distrubute oil/lube. That's it! Jimmy

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.

check to see if the presser foot is loose
check to see if the needle is in backwards
if the presser foot is tight & needle is not in backwards then it could be a timming problem, since you said the needle is hitting the presser foot

How do I install my darning foot?


First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.
