SOURCE: needle clamp won't attach to needle bar

There is a set screw above the needle pin screw which tightens with an allen wrench--try that.

SOURCE: Just purchased the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960,

When you pull the needle threader down it seems like it is pulled all the way down but it isn't. Pull it a little harder and it will turn and go down all the way to match up with the needle eye. I was a little scared to apply the extra "force", thinking I could break my new machine. Just be easy with it and it will work just like the manual says.
Good luck....

On a Singer Quantum 9940, the upper thread will not 'catch' the bobbin thread. What should I try to do?


Make sure that your needle is all the way up. With many needle clamps, loosening it enough to remove a needle is not enough to insert one -- you have to loosen it a little bit more. You can determine that by looking right above the clamp on the shaft -- there is what looks like a grey bar and the end of the needle should be right under it. If your needle is too low, it will not catch the thread.

Needle **** screw is jammed


Perhaps your clamp screw is too tight. Remember, "lefty-loosy, righty-tighty". Take your pliers and turn left or take it to a repair-person.

It is a singer quantum futura ce 200 sewing and embroidery machine .the machine sews but incomplete,skipping and missing stiches. does not always bring up bottom thread . grrrrr---help, i want to sew


Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching
