The new needle will not go into the holder I have the flat side facing away from me.

Sounds like the screw that holds the needle in place is tightened so there is no room for the needle to fit. Loosen it and try installing the needle. Some machine needle clamps will move around when loosened. Just gently pull it back where it should be.

Putting needle holder by on brother sewing machine xl 5030

The needle clamp pin is inserted before the screw is inserted. This allows pressure to be made on the needle.
The needle holder is held on by a screw. See the diagram that I've sent an answer to.

How do i insert a niddle into a singer sew mate machine?

As you're looking at the machine like this, if you look at the top of the needle holder, that is a small, silver screw that comes out to the right. Turn it counter-clockwise to loosen the needle holder and the old needle should slip out. Be sure to insert your new needle with the flat side away from you (toward the back of the machine), until it stops in the holder then tighten the screw again.

Needle clamp tragedu

The needle clamp usually has a screw on the back that is tightened to prevent the needle holder from falling off. The screw on the back should be very loose. Place the holder on the arm (moves when you rotate the wheel by hand) with the screw towards the back and the hand screw on the side. Tighten the screw in the back and it shouldn't come off. Now, place the wire on the side where the hand screw on the inside of the hole along with the arm and place your needle in. Now you can tighten.

After replacing needle, needle threader won't work. What am I doing wrong?

You probably haven't inserted the needle fully into the needle bar. Try that first.

Also check that there isn't a bit of needle shank in the holder.

Good luck.

I have a Janome 4900Qc which has the sign Stop for Safety Purposes, this comes up really often, it has been back and been checked but no better now

Are you having thread jamming problems before you get this message?

I found that my bobbin holder which is held by magnets was being dislodged when I had a thread jam up, usually when I was trying to sew something very thick over a seam such as jeans hems.

Have you mastered removing the needle plate and the bobbin holder to clean in under it and putting this all back together again? With my 6500P, the needle had been striking the bobbin holder when it dislodged and rotated out of postion, the bobbin case had holes and damage to the plastic which was then catching the thread as the bobbin rotated making the jams happen.

Each time, I would dismantle the bobbin holder, clean everything, cut the jammed up threads, check the bobbin case and give the damaged bit a file with a nail file to make it smooth again, then put it back matching the red markings on the bobbin holder and the stopper, rethread and start over. I have bought two new bobbin cases too and taken it back to the dealer a couple of times over 5 years.

I've now learnt to not try to stitch over the thick seam intersections, I'll stop before, lift the pressure foot, move the work past the seam, then restart sewing. However, my machine was just serviced last week and it looks to me like the mechanic has added a part to hold the bobbin case in better, its like a little black lug on the left screwed into the outer housing. So perhaps Janome have addressed this issue with an aftermarket repair.

Apologies if this is telling stuff you already knew, good luck.

Bobbin holder

Make sure the needle is in the highest position before you try putting the bobbin holder in. The bobbin holder has a metal 'finger' which fits into a 'slot' in the housing and it only goes in if you have the needle up.

My needle hits metal

You have to be putting the bobin in the wrong way or it is not all the way in. I hopr this helps.
