You can buy a replacement on sew4less.com, it's called a needle clamp assembly. It's about $15. I did this and my problem is I don't know how to get the broken one off (it won't hold a needle anymore). Please please please tell me how you got yours off in the first place!

Metal boot shape piece goes inside needle bar then needle they keep falling out. Metal fell out trying to change


Would you please say what model you have? I gather that there's now a problem with your needle clamp, and it won't hold needles? Those clamps can be replaced inexpensively--you just slide the old one off and the new one on--but I could be more specific about where you can buy a replacement if you supplied the model number.

Needle clamp tragedu


The needle clamp usually has a screw on the back that is tightened to prevent the needle holder from falling off. The screw on the back should be very loose. Place the holder on the arm (moves when you rotate the wheel by hand) with the screw towards the back and the hand screw on the side. Tighten the screw in the back and it shouldn't come off. Now, place the wire on the side where the hand screw on the inside of the hole along with the arm and place your needle in. Now you can tighten.

I have a Brother XR-65. The needle bar fell out as I was sewing. I need a repair manual or some instruction on how to secure the needle bar in the machine. I have the bar itself and a pin sized piece of...


This was happening to me also - you have to tighten a different screw than the one that holds the needle in.

My husband thought the screw was missing - it is actually a plastic screw with a hole in it for a tiny allen wrench.

You can see it in this picture also

If you look at the photo of the screw I attached, you can zoom in and see it has a hexagonal hole.

It is above the flat head needle clamp screw (the one that holds the needle in)

It is REALLY annoying that this screw is mentioned nowhere in the manual, and the hex allen wrench is not included with the machine.

Kind of an important little detail, considering it holds the needle assembly together... you'd think that they would have told you about it.

when you put the needle in the needle clamp holder the flat side of the needle goes toward the back of the the machine when you tighten the needle clamp screw make sure it's holding the needle,,make sure you can't pull the needle back out of the clamp,, if you can something is wrong with the needle clamp or the screw

Can't get needle stay in the clamp ?


On the 237 there should be a very small piece of round metal that fits into the needle clamp so when it tightens it keeps the needle in the correct position, you may have lost that small piece of metal.

My needle holder will not hold the needle in tightly what could be causing this problem?


The threads of the screw that holds the needle clamp could be stripped or worn.

The needle clamp can be replaced. You can get this from a sewing machine dealer who does the repairs or, order from the Internet.

Stretching a piece of Teflon tape (a plumbing product and not expensive) around the threads of the screw can provide a short-term fix.

Needle holder assembly came off


If you look carefully you should see a small allen head screw on the needle clamp assembly. There should be a J shaped part which goes into a hole on the bottom of the assembly. Reassemble everything,put the assembly back on the needle bar and tighten the screw with an allen wrench.

There is one small metal piece 3/4 inch long and shaped like the letter "T" that fits under the right hand needle plate snap one screw. Attach to underneath square nut and can be seen sticking out from the top holding the bobbincase in place after the top plate is replaced and everything is back together. If this is not it, a picture would help as I have repair 100's of Elna 5000 to 9000's.

How do I attach a walking foot


Okay let's get started.
  • First let's look at the walking foot.
  • Turn the bulky body so that it's away from you.
  • On the left you see a groove that is going to be where you attach the foot to your machine.
  • On the right is a u-shaped arm which you can move up and down. It will go over the needle clamp
Now, let's remove your present foot from the machine and look at it.
  • Loosen the foot screw until it almost comes off. (if it does come off, screw it back on a bit.) The screw is on the left of the foot-bar.
  • On the right you'll see the needle bar with a needle clamp (what you tighten when you replace a needle) on the right of the needle-bar.
Okay the walking foot business.
  • slide the walking foot into position so that the foot screw is in the slot on the right and the u-shaped arm is over the needle clamp, with the needle clamp in the middle of the u-shaped opening.
  • Tighten the foot screw securely, it's going to be under more strain than normal.
  • While you're at it, check that the needle-clamp is nice and tight as well.
Okay, then! There you go... Happy sewing.
