Question about Sewing Machines
I need to change the needle bar on my brother DB2-B714-3 sewing machine to accommodate a size #22 needle.
How do I change the needle bar?
The brother DB 2 series of machines do not use a needle with a flat side. the needle system is DBX1 and are available from size 10 to size 20.
Try using the right needle for the machine and the right size for the thread you are using. this should make it better

If you're having the same problem we did, the attachment is installed too high on the bar. Move it down as far as possible and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, check to see whether the machine is belt-driven; did the belt break or slip off?

The needle holder has a screw right above the screw that holds the needle in place. It really doesn't look like a screw because it does not appear to have a slot for a screwdriver. However, with a small flat head screw driver you can tighten it up. There is also a curverd wire that must be inserted into a slot at the bottom of the holder. The screw tightens against the wire that tightens against the post. (It's a curved wire that curves around the front part). The above info that was previously posted was almost dead on for me. The screw spoken about is called a set screw, which is a screw that is almost hollow. To lossen or tighten a set screw you use an allen wrench. The one on this machine is 5/64 th size. You can use a very small screwdriver if it fits tightly, but you must be careful not to strip the inside of the screw.
