SOURCE: I have a Singer Ultralock

I have been bailed out by and a couple of times for parts on a couple of older machines that I have. They also have manuals for purchase too. I think that I would call them and see if there is a substitute, ie. needle clamp for 14u64 and see if it would work. I know how frustrating it is to try and find parts and manuals, I hate to see a good machine go to waste. Good luck.

How to replace a needle in a Singer Ikea 150 year anniversary game boy edition

If you take a look above the needle, there is a clamp on the shaft with a screw, generally on the left side. That is called the "needle clamp." Put something under the needle first, then loosen the screw on the clamp, and the needle will drop out. THAT'S why you need to put something under it--if you don't it will drop into the bobbin area and can be hard to fish out.

Take a look at the needle you want to insert. It will have a flat part, and that flat part MUST be away from you--facing the back of the machine. Insert the needle as far as it will go (holding it with needle nose pliers works great for this) and tighten the screw. If the screw does not have "wings" on it, after you have hand-tightened it, use a straight-blade screw driver and tighten it at least 2 or 3 times more.

After replacing the needle in my singer 8280, the needle clamp is not holding the needle tight, the needle falls down even after tighening do i make the needle get fixed?

It sounds like you have lost the tread guide. When you press the clamp as far up as it will go, there should be a slot in the post underneath the clamp visible. You may need to use a mirror to see it. The thread guide snaps into that slot and keeps the clamp from falling down. Take it to any repair shop. It will not be expensive to repair.
