XL5140 - The Piece that holds the Needle fell off it's post. Also do not remember which direction it faces. It is the whole piece on the post - where you put the needle in and tighten the screw. The needle guide came out and need instruction on getting it properly in place too.

SOURCE: My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine

Totally happened to me last week. I discovered that the metal piece that fell off and holds the needle has a small screw that holds it in place. It needs an Allen wrench (tiny one) to tighten it back into place. I just lucked into figuring it out.

I used a 5/64" allen wrench to replace the needle bar. A simple fix which cost me a kiss (to my husband) instead of 109.95 to the service tech.

I took my needles out to change them and can't get them back in!


Heather, switch off machine from electric supply.gently lay machine on its back, you will then be able to look at the needle holder .remember the needle has a flat side and this must corispond to the shape where the needle enters into the space for it . be sure you tighten needle into place with the tool provided for the job. Reston machine back onto it's base . Tread up machine and slowly turn by hand the side wheel to make sure the needle is in the right place. When this is working you can refit electric cable as continue sewing. P'S try sewing on a bit of spare fabric to make sure all is well..happy sewing , lois

Metal boot shape piece goes inside needle bar then needle they keep falling out. Metal fell out trying to change


Would you please say what model you have? I gather that there's now a problem with your needle clamp, and it won't hold needles? Those clamps can be replaced inexpensively--you just slide the old one off and the new one on--but I could be more specific about where you can buy a replacement if you supplied the model number.

Similar problem


That would be the thread guide. You need a small allen wrench to put this whole thing back on. There is a hole in the right side,looks like a hole, it's blackish, but is for allen wrench. The curved metal piece slides up into a tiny hole from the bottom near where needle enters then slide whole thing back on machine and tighten with allen wrench.

My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine


this sounds like the needle guard it is usually held on by the same screw that holds the needle clamp it should fit so that it comes across the needle at the front to stop your fingers being sown but not interfere with the needle try turning by hand before turning back on.

Parts fell out


WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)
