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?

Move the power foot control away to prevent accidently pressing it while changing the needle. Turn the hand wheel that is located on the upper right side of the sewing machine. Watch the needle while you are turning the wheel and stop when the needle is as high as it can go. If the thread is still inserted into the needle, pull it out.
Find the small clamp that holds the needle in place. It is located on the side of the needle bar. Grasp the clamp and turn it to loosen the needle. You don't want to remove the clamp entirely, just loosen it enough for the needle to be removed.
Remove the needle from the needle bar. If you are having difficulty maneuvering to get the needle out, open the needle plate. Be careful when removing a needle, especially if it is broken, to avoid sticking yourself. Set the needle aside, if you are switching out needles to use one for different weight material; otherwise, throw the old needle away.
Select the correct size needle. The different sizes are written on the colored end of the needle that fits into the sewing machine. Turn the needle so that the flat side is facing away from you. Slide it into the needle bar until it reaches as far as it can.
Hold the needle in place with one hand and grasp the needle clamp with the other hand. Tighten the needle clamp. Do not turn it too hard to avoid breaking it or stripping the threads on the clamp.
Clean any thread or fuss that is caught in the needle plate of bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel several times to make sure the needle is securely in place. Thread the needle and continue sewing.
