Hi,

If you look carefully you should see a small allen head screw on the needle clamp assembly. There should be a J shaped part which goes into a hole on the bottom of the assembly. Reassemble everything,put the assembly back on the needle bar and tighten the screw with an allen wrench.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Needle will not stay in? i install needle, tighten thumb screw and the needle falls out??why??


Buy a new pack of needles to make sure you do not have defective needles, if that doesnt work get a new thumb screw and if it still doesnt work you need a new needle bar.

Needle clamp fell off. got a new one, but need


I have an XL6452 and the same problem. I figured out that you can use a tiny screw driver (or an allen wrench might work). I tried using the screw that tightens the needle but it didn't seem to work. The screw looks like it just a hole. It took a lot of turns to get it loose enough so you can put it on. You will see it come out.
Once you get it on you can tighten it.

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.
