Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
That is because the thread guide is underneath the needle clamp, and BOTH must be removed and replaced together as a unit. In addition, the wire is held by a tiny screw in the back of the shaft. That screw also serves as the stop for the end of the needle. Take a look at the shaft right above the needle, and you'll see what looks like a grey bar--that is the screw. It's difficult to access on the back, but must be loosened first -- JUST ONE OR TWO TURNS -- to remove the wire. Then, take off the needle clamp and wire as one unit.
Insert the replacement guide inside and at the back of the needle clamp, with the hook part sticking out of the clamp. You'll see that there's an indentation in the clamp to hold it. Insert the guide and clamp as one unit, then hook the wire around the screw and tighten.
FYI - If you accidentally remove the screw (which only turns about three or four times) and drop it as I did, you don't really need it to hold the wire guide, BUT you still need a needle stop. I just inserted a toothpick when I changed needles until I could get a replacement.
The above sounds relatively easy, but you'll probably have to do some manipulating, especially the first time, and if you're like me, possibly some cussing -- but it WILL fit.
