How to tighten needle bar


Hello Doris Bentono

Needle bars have two screws: one to tighten the needle in place and another on the opposite side or toward the back to tighten the needle bar to the needle shaft. Usually a small thin screw driver will be needed.

Please let me know how this goes for you.

I have a singer quantum xl-1. The needle bar won't go down when any of the pictures are selected to sew, duck bear. The letters work and all the straight stitches and zigzags. Any ideas?


Hi Karen,

Looks like your machine is stuck in needle bar lock out (or basting stitch) mode. There is a small rubber pad that the top of the needle bar hits when the needle bar is locked out. If the pad is missing the bar will stay locked out.
You can manually pull down on the needle bar in regular sewing to get it going again. But it won't do the Maxi, or basting stitches until it is fixed.

good luck!

Bernina 180 needle bar won't move up and down


This could be the needle bar clutch. Turn off machine. Unplug machine. Remove needle. Turn hand wheel in normal rotation 1/4 turn. Gently move needle bar up and down by hand you should feel a click and the needle bar will not move up and down easily now. Restart machine and test. If it works all is good. This is a result of the machine requiring professional attention. If you use basting stitches it will likely unclutch again.

How do I adjust the needle shaft position on my Hobbylock 788. It somehow shifted up.


take the end cap off and follow the needle bar up until you see a block with a screw in the middle of it.bring the needle bar down useing the handwheel to its lowest position loosen the screw and you should be able to move the needle bar if you have a needle threader you can use it to reset the height of the needle bar just bring the threader down and then lower the needle bar to where the threader fits into the eye of the needle like it would if it were being threaded

I am getting the message Raise the Needle Bar slowly. I can't find anything about a needle bar in the instruction book about a Needle Bar.


Just turn the hand wheel. The needle bar is the round bar that the needle is inserted into and is what makes the needle go up and down as you sew.

I have a Euro-Pro 473 model sewing machine, I?m converting into a Needle Felting Machine (adapter is Around metal with seven needles around it and is suppose to be attached into needle bar). I?ve removed...


If you're having the same problem we did, the attachment is installed too high on the bar. Move it down as far as possible and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, check to see whether the machine is belt-driven; did the belt break or slip off?

Pfaff serger stuck


your needle bar has been pushed up and is out of adjustment. You need to take off the side cover, there should be a screw on the back of your machine holding it on. Remove this screw, and remove the cover.You may have to remove the light assembly to reach the screw on the needle bar. Once you can see the needle bar, rotate the handwheel until you can see the screw on the needle bar. Loosen this screw SLIGHTLY until you can turn the needle bar. Hold and rotate the needle bar back and forth as you push down slightly. This will lower the bar.Lower it about 1/4 inch. Adjust the needles by turning the bar so that they are straight across. Tighten the needle bar screw so that the bar doesn't move. Turn the handwheel to see if the threads will be picked up. If not, adjust until they are. Tighten the needle bar screw tightly,reinstall the side cover ,and tighten the screw. Change your needles.Rethead and sew.
