Re: 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.

I have a Juki MO103, on mine, I have to take a screw driver and loosen a screw on each of the needle bars to remove and replace the needles.

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.

I have a Brother CS600i Computerized Sewing Machine. The bobbin case will move with the little 'felt or fuzzy' area coming around to the left side. The needle will sort of 'drill' into the case. ...

I hate to tell you but there is no felt or fuzzy area, what you are seeing is lint and thread under the throat plate. Take out the screws and clean out that area, you will be surprised how much is there and how much better your machine will work. You may have cleaned the hook and shuttle area but not underneath. Also, oil your machine as per your manual.

Needle Size.

I usually use Kenmore needles. I bought my machine through Sears and was told the needles were compatible. Otherwise I get the appropriate size for my fabric weight at JoAnn Fabric. As long as it has a flat back it will work fine.

While I don't have specific solution for your problem, I have a similar problem with my "Euro-Pro 9101. My needle keeps breaking and it hits the needle plate. The needle plate is now very rough. Does anyone know what the solution might be?
