My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine

I was sewing and my needle broke. The metal that holds the needle in place fell off and another long piece of metal fell out. The long piece is part way straight, and then curves around perpendicular to the strait part doing a 3/4 turn. I am not exactly sure how to put it back together.

    I was sewing and I hit a pin. The metal that holds the needle in place fell off and the thread glide fell off. The needle clamp won't stay on nor will it hold the needle in place. I have looked on line and found a replacement part, hate to pay $30.00 when I am not exactly sure how to put it back together. Can I get directions?

    I, too, hit a pin and the piece of metal holding the needle fell off the metal rod piece above. After some close inspection, I am pretty sure that there is some sort of tiny allen wrench or screwdriver that fits in the liitle hole on the same side of the metal as the needle screw handle.(right side) This little tiny screw tightens and untightens the pressure against the metal rod, so I think if I can find the correct allen wrench to untighten it, I will be able to slide it back on and then retighten the screw once it is in place. The little curved metal piece that looks like a spring is the needle guide and goes into the bottom of the metal piece and up through the hole on top. Whether or not you have a clear passageway is also dependant on the tiny screw location.

Totally happened to me last week. I discovered that the metal piece that fell off and holds the needle has a small screw that holds it in place. It needs an Allen wrench (tiny one) to tighten it back into place. I just lucked into figuring it out.

I used a 5/64" allen wrench to replace the needle bar. A simple fix which cost me a kiss (to my husband) instead of 109.95 to the service tech.

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.

MY BOBBIN CASE FELL OUT TWO PIECES HOW DO I PUT IT BACK TOGETHER


I assume you actually mean the metal ring that holds the small round case that the bobbin itself sits in. There are usually two arms that swing in to hold that larger metal ring in place and then there is a plastic and metal piece that sit behind the large metal ring. fit the plastic piece that may look somewhat like a scoop next to the metal piece that usually has the post the the bobbin fits onto and has a quite sharp tooth on it. The metal ring then goes on to hold those two pieces in place and the two arms swing in to hold the metal ring into place. The bobbin or bobbin case now can be put back in. Hint on metal ring placement: they almost always have a notch that goes at the very top where the arm on the bobbin case sits in when it is in place. You may find it easiest to do this with the machine laying on its back so you don't have to have 4 hands to hold everything in place while putting everything back in.
Good luck!

The thing you put the needle in and their is a wire thing that goes in there...that piece fell out and needle won't stay in...it's a brother XR-35


What fell out was the needle clamp gib - a small wedge-like part that presses on the needle to hold in place.

You may be able to get it repaired or replaced.

Search online for parts, or ask a sewing machine service tech for an estimate for having the machine repaired.

I have a Bernette 50 sewing machine....i was sewing velcro....the screw assembly on the post where the needle goes into fell off and the thread guide fell off it....i can't tell if it is broken or just...


That can be tricky. Some thread guides and needle clamps have to be assembled and then slid up into place with the needle screw holding it together. Some have a set screw to hold it.

this sounds like the needle guard it is usually held on by the same screw that holds the needle clamp it should fit so that it comes across the needle at the front to stop your fingers being sown but not interfere with the needle try turning by hand before turning back on.
