Try: flat side of the needle shank facing the back of the machine or facing to the left. One should form a stitch.

How to fit needle in nina 787 overlocker

Perhaps it is not the correct needle for the machine. There are some needles that are a tad bit longer than the standard sewing needle (my non-Bernina coverstitch takes a longer needle). Although not familiar with the 787, most Bernina sergers use the same needle as a Bernina sewing machine.

When installing the needle, be sure to push it all the way up (as far as it will go) when tightening the skrew.

If it continues to break the needle, the machine could be out of time and need service.

Be sure you are unscrewing the needle screw sufficiently to allow the needle base to fit (be careful to not drop the screw as it is very small and will have a tendency to disappear!).

Also, most overlockers come with a needle installing tool which is basically the cleaning brush with a small hole drilled through handle where the needle point is held during installation. Makes it easier to get the needle into the little hole in the needlebar.

Also, be sure the flat side of the needle is facing the correct direction.

How do i insert needlewhich way round into machine newholm sr2000

Needles are normally inserted with the flat side of the top part facing away from you. I've yet to see a machine that it isn't inserted that way in 30+ years of sewing. If, for some reason, the machine doesn't sew or isn't sewing well with the needle inserted that way, you can always flip it around and try the other way. But start this way first. I'm certain it'll be the correct way on your machine as it is on every machine I've ever come across.

I have a white sewing machine model 415 and cant find needles to fit the machine

Hi. Sewing machine needles are standard sizes, so you shouldn't have a problem finding needles to fit. You use different size needles depending on what weight and type of fabric you plan to sew (I posted a chart that explains what size needle to use with what fabric).
What do you want to sew?

Are you inserting the needle fully into clamp? You may have a bad lot of needles that werent straight. Try sewing by hand with machine to see exactly where and when needle breaks, then you might be able to solve problem.
