Assuming this is a serger? Is there only one needle set-screw on the machine or one set-screw for each needle? If there are two set-screws, then you may have accidentally lost the set-screw for the other needle. If there is only one set-screw, both needles will need to be installed at the same time, hold them all the way up and simultaneously tighten the set-screw.

Some other machines, ie Bernina, have a set-screw for each needle.

How to fix a broken Needle clamp on viking 936

I don't know of a way to repair the needle clamp. It will more than likely have to be replaced. The local authorized husqvarna viking dealer should be able to service the machine. You can find the nearest dealer from husqvarna viking website -

Bernina 1230 won't change needle position or zigzag

Most likely problem is that the machine needs a good cleaning and lubrication. You can try gently heating the needle clamp with a hair dryer (don't melt the plastic! Bernina thinks it's worth a fortune!), or run the machine full tilt with the needle out in 15 minute sessions, but usually the cure is a proper professional cleaning and lubrication. If they can give your machine back the next day, they probably didn't do a really good cleaning. See:

How to change plate needles?

You are talking about a serger / overlocker ?? Yes, needles are glued in. If you get a grip on what is left(eg with long nose pliers) and carefully lift, it should come out.

My machine is about 20 years old but in very good condition, i have never had trouble with tension untill about a month ago, but now i cant seem to rectify it i have broken a few needles trying to sort it,...

It sounds to me like something may have been accidently changed. Double check bobbin is clean and in correct position. Also see if there is a thread caught in one of the tension guides, by pulling a thread carefully through the machine towards the needle.
Rather than breaking needles, test the tension by putting foot down and pulling on thread by hand , if its too easy to pull through something is causing the tension to be too loose

My needle keeps hitting the throatplate, (I have broken 2). It was working fine. I don't know what I have done to cause this! e.


First, check the position of your needle.Machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle left, right,or center. If your needle is not in the correct position, it may be hitting your needle plate. If that doesn't work,change your needle plate.
If you've been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

I hope this helps.
