SOURCE: needles keep breaking & bobbing wont feed thru

First try taking your bobbin case right out of the machine (not sure if this model has a top loading or front loading bobbin, but your manual will help you here) and floss out the tension slot with a piece of strong thread. Don't use waxed dental floss, but non-waxed would work okay. (The bobbin case is the piece that the bobbin sits in.) Look around while you have the machine open and remove any fluff and thread you can see - TURN MACHINE OFF BEFORE DOING THIS! Replace bobbin case. Replace bobbin and make sure it "clicks" into the tension slot.

Then unthread the top of the machine, clean the tension disks by passing a folded dollar bill (or any paper money, depends on what country you are in) through the disks in the direction you thread the machine. Do this several times. Re-thread making sure you follow the correct thread path.

Make sure the needle plate is on firmly.

If after all that it still won't work, I'm sorry to say that it sounds like you have a misaligned needle bar. This commonly happens after you have a major thread snaffoo and needle breakage. The needle gets caught in the thread knot, pulls to the side and breaks but if it gets seriously caught it can pull the needle bar out of place. You cannot put the needle bar back in place yourself - it's a job for the workshop. Don't sew on your machine until it is fixed. The noise you are hearing is likely to be the needle striking against the needle plate or even the bobbin. Your timing will probably need re-setting too and this needs to be done by a qualified technician.

If you really need to sew before you can get your machine into the workshop, and if you can move the needle position on your machine by pressing a "sideways" button of some sort, you could try to get the needle in the centre yourself using this feature. This will not help if it is the timing that is the major problem.

SOURCE: Color coded Kenmore needles

Hi there, The different colors only correspond with the size of the needle. Green is actually a size 18 (110) needles which is basically as big as they come! your best bet would be to go with a size 11 (75) or 12 (80) needle. For the Kenmore color coding it would blue or orange respectively. Hope this helps

Singer CG500 Needle hits the needle plate. Needle was replaced. Verified needle in correctly. Tried hand wheel - still hits. Machine has yet to be used!!


Unless you need all the bells and whistles to sew get you a pre-1930 treadle or handcrank. I have 2 electric Singers, 1947 model 66 and 1948 201-2 both with attachments. Also I have 1903 Singer handcrank made in Scotland. The plastic new one just don't have the ability to hang in there .... All my pre 1930 Singers sew... I love them!

All stitches skipping and i replaced the needle


Providing you have put the needle in the correct way round if the machine is still skipping stitches you may need to retime it, email me if you need timing instructions but remember to give me your make and model [email protected]

The timing is off in my genie. How can I adjust this? When the needle comes down it hits the bobbin case instead of the oppening.


Are you sure it the timing. Have you check the needles. You must have the right needles for your machine.Check your manual for the correct size.
