Sewing Machine Breaking Needles

My Dressmaker 300z sewing machine needle strikes the metal piece below the bobbin case and breaks the tip of the needle off. It was bought in 1990 at Walmart. How can I fix it?

The timing is off in the machine-you need to take it to a professional for a resetting of the timing. This really isn't something that can be done at home by the sewer.

Most repair techs will have access to the information (usually in a service manual, a pricey item that can cost as much as several hundred dollars US) needed to set the timing on the different models of majour manufacturers, including your particular machine.

Make sure when you take the machine in that you get an estimate, and that the estimate includes a servicing (cleaning, oiling, and checking everything is in good order).
