It is tempting to say something about a haystack in reply, could you be a little more specific ?

Can you go to the place where you bought it, or call them ?

If you are in an urban community, find a sewing machine dealer and ask for a replacement to suit the machine you own........if it is less than 20 years old, it will almost certainly take a "flat back" type.

If you are in a remote community, find somewhere on the internet in your own country that will sell you some....just be sure to give details of the Make and Model

Thread jam bent needle feeddogs went to down postion and i can't get them to come up

Ok, your going to need to get a new needle. If you can, snip the thread jam to get it out. If the needle is stuck, trying loosening the screw(or whatever) holding it in. This is typically a tension problem I find, but as for feed dogs, did you forget to put the presser foot down? Also check the settings on your machine, mine has a switch to not use feed dogs.

Elna sewing machine fabric is puckering

Check tension and threading up first, sounds like top tension or thread catching somewhere. Also have you changed the needle, i change mine for EACH new sewing project, needles go blunt and need replacing every 4-6 hours of sewing. Lastly, press seams as you go, this improves appearance and blends stitching into the fabric,

Needle position

Hmmm sounds like an issue I had/have with a singer stylist. There is a knuckle part that connects the zig zag mechanism to the needle bar. Mine had a pin that kept slipping out. When I took it apart (and lost the pin) I also discovered that the "round" holes the pin went into were work out and were more like ovals. The machine is now a parts machine.

I have a juki mo 2512 and both needles broke need to know how I replace them?

I have a Juki MO103, on mine, I have to take a screw driver and loosen a screw on each of the needle bars to remove and replace the needles.

My machine requires two different sized needles so make sure you know what needles you need.

Code E6 on Brother CE5000PRW sewing maching

I fought with this machine so much, then felt like a fool. It wasn't threaded properly, and I needed to re-set the tension.
Thanks for being there - if only to vent......

How to change needle

There is a screw on the side of the needle bar, usually with a plastic ball on the end to facilitate turning it by hand. Loosen it, remove the broken needle, and slide the new needle up into place with the flat part to the back. Re-tighten the screw and you should be in business.

Needle Size.

I usually use Kenmore needles. I bought my machine through Sears and was told the needles were compatible. Otherwise I get the appropriate size for my fabric weight at JoAnn Fabric. As long as it has a flat back it will work fine.
