Pay attention to your width of your stitch, always turn your handwheel towards you and see if it hits before actually sewing something, then you can adjust and tighten your foot and make the right adjustment. Sometimes it is just a bent needle too, so try a new one, Good luck

My needle keeps breaking because it's hitting the square part of the presser foot that it goes down into.


If your machine has multiple needle positions, make sure the needle is set in the center position. Also, make sure you are using a zig-zag presser foot where the opening is wide enough to accommodate an off-center needle or to make decorative stitching. If you are using a straight-stitch foot, then the foot will have only a small circular hole in the center and the machine must be set for straight-stitch only.

It the needle still hits, then the needle bar may be off-kilter. Take it for service.

I know how to attach my ruffler foot but my needle keeps hitting the plate .what do I need to adjust to keep the needle from hitting the foot


You may need to move the needle position left or right. Try a different stitch length. If the ruffler foot is installed correctly and needle is in the correct position this should not happen. It is hitting left/right/forward or back of the ruffler needle space?

I have a Kenmore model 1690. The needle when it goes down does not hit the hole in the foot plate. It comes down too far to the left of the opening, making it impossible to use the machine. I have...


This machine, when you have it on straight stitch, will sew with the needle to the left. If it's hitting the pressure foot, you may have the wrong pressure foot on the machine. If it's hitting the needle plate when you have the pressure foot removed, it's possible you have set for zig zag and you have a straight stitch needle plate on the machine. I believe this machine came with 2 needle plates. One for straight stitch, and another for zig zag.

Bernina Artista 640 - While embroidering, the sewing needle hit a pin and broke. Now that I have replaced the needle, the alignment is off. The needle point comes down onto the embroidery presser foot.


This will probably need to be handled by a professional. With this particular Bernina, you might be able to adjust the needle position so that it is slightly off center and will not hit the presser foot. That would be a temporary fix, however. If you want to be able to thoroughly enjoy your sewing time, you will be happier if you take it to a certified Bernina repair site and let them adjust the needle position.

Sounds like your tension is too tight and the thread is pulling your needle. Also, make your that you needle position button is on center. If it is on left or right it will cause your needle to snap.

L won't run at all - no sounds but lights up


If the needle is hitting on the bobbin assembly, then your machine is out of time and needs to be taken to a repair center.

New singer 8280 needle hits overcasting foot and breaks


so, it sews for a while?  It sounds to me like the screw that holds the needle in place is loose.  As the needle moves up and down the screw loosens until that one fateful stitch, it comes out completely.  Try to tighten with a screw driver.
the other possibility is that it breaks if you are sewing over a bulky seam, like a flat fell.  as the presser foot "toes up" to go over the lump, the needle hits and there you are.
holler if that doesn't help.
