Wow! That's sure a tricky situation! Just had a look at my needle clamp screw set-up through a magnifying glass. It seems to me that there is a very small Allen screw just above the needle clamp screw place. Could you use a small Allen key and undo this, hopefully releasing the whole needle clamp assembly. The cheap kits sold in chain stores for repairing glasses may well contain a tiny Allen key. Your next challenge will be to locate a new needle clamp assembly, but a Husqvarna dealer should be able to help you out there. There is an excellent online place for buying spares but I am very sorry I can't remember its name. Try Google? You could try taking it to a hardware store and seeing if someone there can help you with a suggestion on how to remove the screw shank.

I have a singer futura XL580 and the thread guide either flew off or broke off. I thought I bought the right replacement part no. 086046 but can not seem to figure it out


That is because the thread guide is underneath the needle clamp, and BOTH must be removed and replaced together as a unit. In addition, the wire is held by a tiny screw in the back of the shaft. That screw also serves as the stop for the end of the needle. Take a look at the shaft right above the needle, and you'll see what looks like a grey bar--that is the screw. It's difficult to access on the back, but must be loosened first -- JUST ONE OR TWO TURNS -- to remove the wire. Then, take off the needle clamp and wire as one unit.

Insert the replacement guide inside and at the back of the needle clamp, with the hook part sticking out of the clamp. You'll see that there's an indentation in the clamp to hold it. Insert the guide and clamp as one unit, then hook the wire around the screw and tighten.

FYI - If you accidentally remove the screw (which only turns about three or four times) and drop it as I did, you don't really need it to hold the wire guide, BUT you still need a needle stop. I just inserted a toothpick when I changed needles until I could get a replacement.

The above sounds relatively easy, but you'll probably have to do some manipulating, especially the first time, and if you're like me, possibly some cussing -- but it WILL fit.

How do i remove the needle clamp assembly from bernina 1090?


Remove the needle bar clamp screw. From the back side of the needle clamp holder, remove the small needle stop screw. The clamp can then be slid down off the end of the needle bar. You may have to swivel the clamp back and forth as you slide it down in order to remove it. Some clamps are fairly tight.

Thread keeps knooting up


is the bobbin threaded correctly ?
is the bobbin warped?
try rethreading the machine top & bobbin
change the needle
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.
check to make sure every thread guide is used

round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged

I have a Brother XR-65. The needle bar fell out as I was sewing. I need a repair manual or some instruction on how to secure the needle bar in the machine. I have the bar itself and a pin sized piece of...


This was happening to me also - you have to tighten a different screw than the one that holds the needle in.

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/needle-clamp-screw-brother-ls-2125-sewing-machine.aspx

My husband thought the screw was missing - it is actually a plastic screw with a hole in it for a tiny allen wrench.

You can see it in this picture also

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/needle-clamp-babylock-brother-xz0001051.aspx

If you look at the photo of the screw I attached, you can zoom in and see it has a hexagonal hole.

It is above the flat head needle clamp screw (the one that holds the needle in)

It is REALLY annoying that this screw is mentioned nowhere in the manual, and the hex allen wrench is not included with the machine.

Kind of an important little detail, considering it holds the needle assembly together... you'd think that they would have told you about it.

Having problem sewing on leather. I have a juki 555-5 and it is skipping 1 stitch every 3 inches . I bought a roller foot kit and it did not work. I am so frustrated. If any one could help it would be...


make sure to use a leather needle
needle must be inserted correctly,,the falt side of the needle must face the shaft
the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft

raise the needle bar to the highest point,,then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle
push the needle all the way up to the stop, or as far as it will go,then tighten the needle clamp screw

also make sure the needle & thread will work togeather
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

also clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are
also bobbin area
