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.

Sounds like your needle is hitting the needle plate instead of going through the tiny hole down to the bobbin. Try using the handwheel slowly and watch. Or perhaps the needle is hitting the bobbin case. Something has been knocked off the straight I think. Has your machine been dropped or dmamaged?

Have curvy 7863, was sewing fine, went to do a button hole , would only gum up and alarm went off, got flustrated put other pressure foot back on now will not sew, will not pick up bobbin thread, and...


Have you opened yp the bobin feed? Check to see if thread knotted underneath. This can make the needle hit the threads and niot go dep enough to latch onto the thread in order to sew.

first go to singer website & check & see if they have a manual for the machine
Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example 4016) & click search

here are some other websites to check for a manual

the presser foot has a lever at the back of the machine or side which
lifts the presser foot, the needle move up & down when you press on the foot pedal.

Singer 7442 Needle seems 2b 2 long.Hits something below


I strongly recommend you desist from using the sewing machine on a levis. It could be that the capacity is not for that thick material like levis.

I had similar problem till I had to take it in for repairs because mine was discovered to have had a shift in the footer below the needle compartment where the clothes are been laid before sewing.

Look closely at the footer.

Good luck dear.

I care so much.

Needle Hitting Solid Metal


On my machine, that usually happens when the needle gets bent. Try replacing the needle.

PLEASE HELP MY SEWING MACHINE!!!!


Take the needle plate off and turn the needle up and down by hand while watching to see if it is hitting anything. The hook timing could be off.
