Question about Sewing Machines
I unfortunately broke 2 needles. i successfully took the needles out and when i was about to put the 2 new needles- i cannot put it as the holder cannot be put in the highest place. I notices that one of the needles underneath ( where you thread the first thread) seems to be touching something underneath. the handwheel cannot be turned properly because of this and as a result cannot make the needle holder up . please help
It's possible that when the needles were broken that the overlocker
either jumped time or damaged a part.
it would be a good idea to have the machine checked.

I was having this very same problem with my lower looper . I had been using the one needle stitching all afternoon and I was doing quite nice stitching. then I decided to put the right needle back in and do some overlock stitching and guess what I spent the next two hours fighting the looper problem. I had completely re-thread this machine at least 20 times now. I decided to take the needle out and re-insert it and re-thread it one more time (right lower looper- then upper looper- right needle- then left needle) was careful to pull all threads to the back and under the presser foot for about 6 inches.
Held on to the thread, lowered presser foot and did the chaining stitch. BINGO it didn't break, tried it with a piece of cloth and Perfect stitches. I have a Babylock BL402 and used tension settings left to right
4-3-3-3 and default settings for the rest.
Hope this helps someone someday.

there should be an allen screw on the back side of the needle bar clamp push it up and on and make sure its as stright as you can get it and tighten down on the allen screw
