There is a screw on the side of the needle bar, usually with a plastic ball on the end to facilitate turning it by hand. Loosen it, remove the broken needle, and slide the new needle up into place with the flat part to the back. Re-tighten the screw and you should be in business.

How do I replace the right hand needle in my Juki MO -50


Consult your owner's manual. Be sure you have removed the broken needle that is still in the machine. Make sure you have the flat side of the new needle facing the correct direction and that the needle screw is loosened enough to allow the needle to fit in the hole.

Here's a manual you can download. Page 15 is where the needle instructions are located:

I broke a needle and tried to replace both needles. Now I can't get my machine to chain. I have rethreaded it, and replaced the needles, closely following the manual and threading guide but still


it's possible that when the needle broke it could have caused the
machine to jump time and would need to be serviced to see if it
needs adjustment.

Elna Lock L1 won't keep thread chain


for a manual try elna customer service
as for the needle, check to see if it's inserted correctly in the needle holder
the needle must be pushed all the way up into the needle holder--
the flat side goes to the back side of the machine
you also mentioned that you broke a needle, when a needle is broken some times it can cause the machine to go out of time, which means it has to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop & be retimed,,
and it needs to be serviced.

My needle broke, and i don't know how to replace it.


There should ba a screw that can be loosened enuf to remove broken needle. Be sure to replace new needle with flat side in the same way as the old one, otherwise thread will keep breaking.
