My singer machine keeps disaligning. I put a new needle in and when coming down it dosen't go into the hole. Even if I activlly hold it in place and it goes in once as soon as I let go it goes


If you are pulling the arm towards you or pushing away from you then you will need to have the needle arm adjusted. Pushing and pulling of the arm will only cause damage. Many times this needs to be adjusted due to the constant movement of the machine. There is usually material on the Youtube to explain how to adjust needle arm.

How do I attach a twin needle post to my Bernina 950


Hello Erina
Sounds like you purchased and wish to use a twin needle which comes as two needles on a single needle shaft, correct? That is terrific and you have a wonderful machine.
Remove the needle in the machine just the same as you have been over the past 2 years. Unscrew the needle clamp screw, pull down on the needle or part of the needle in the machine and insert the new twin needle shaft into the needle bar. Tighten the needle clamp screw and thread the needles using two sources of thread on the top.
If the existing needle post is not coming out of the needle clamp easily, use a pair of pliers to grip and pull down. Cover the sewing surface to ensure that it will not be damaged as the pliers free the needle. If the needle is firmly embeded, you may need to give the pliers a gentle tap with a small hammer.
If using a zig zag stitch make sure that the width does not exceed the twin needle limit; otherwise as the needles swing from side to side they can hit the stitch plate and brake.
Happy Stitching

M546 brother overlocker


it's possible that when the left needle broke, it could have caused a missalignment in the machine, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked.

How do I remove the needle from my Brother Overlocker


HOLD needle before you turn needle clamp screw towards you to loosen. I emphasize holding needles a's you remove them because many sewists have accidentally DROPPED needles down into their machines! TURN OFF POWER & UNPLUG! You will have two needles (standard #11 and a #14 but check your manual, please!). Although the needles will be same length, the left one will APPEAR higher when you insert into the needle bar. The flat shank goes to the BACK, more "rounded" side of needle/s facing you. Jimmy

The needle keeps breaking and the thread wont stay threaded. the needle is not going straight up and down but it goes down and gets stuck almost


usually a 3-5 inch thread tail is helpful to keep the thread from coming out of the needle & pull the thread(top & bottom) behind the needle
flat side of needle goes to the back of machine
some needles & thread are not compatable----try this

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

on some machines the presser foot can't do a zig zag stitch

5417 Mechanical Sewing Machine: ok when my needle goes down it seems to hit someth...


If the needle is not in all the way it will bottom out in the shuttle, or if you bought new needles and accedently got the wrong ones. If the needle does not enter the needle plate far enough to be bottoming out then the machine is out of time. You know i was about to hit post it and I realized I didn't think about, if the needle is bent it will hit the hook. so check those things hope it works out.

I don't know what kind of needles to use. I have three older machines (117.552 158.18030 158.13201) all bought used. The manuals all say use Kenmore needles -not enough info. Is the 15x1 series of needle...


You can use Kenmore, Singer, Klasse, Schmetz or Organ needles for home sewing machines - they are the same configuration.

The instruction manual should indicate how to insert the needle, either according to the flat side of the needle shaft or the groove down the front of the needle.

Needles for older machines may require a round shaft needle. Needles for industrial sewing machines have a round shaft.

My PE 100 keeps breaking needles, they are striking something during use.


    Hello,
    Here are some things to try.

    * Your broken needles may have been too thin for your fabric. Make sure your replacement needle
    is appropriate for the weight and type of your fabric and thread. You may also need a thicker needle if you’re sewing through bulky layers of fabric.

    * When you insert your new needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly (usually with the flat side
    away from the bobbin, but consult your manual), that it goes all the way into the holder, and
    that the screw is securely tightened.


    If this doesn’t seem to be the problem

    * Check your pressure foot
    Make sure it’s attached securely.

    * Change your pressure foot
    Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.

    * Don’t sew over pins
    A needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach your needle.

    * Don’t pull your fabric as you sew
    You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.

    * Check your needle plate
    Make sure it's securely in position.

    * Change your needle plate
    If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for
    sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

    * Check the position of your needle
    Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right, left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or pressure foot.

    I hope this helps.

How do i get the needles in


The needle, in it's bigger part has a beveled side, it's made that way to adjust the needle to a screw that goes in the head of the sewing machine. Look carefully in the needle part and you will find that screw, loosen it and pull the needle down to remove it, to put again the needle, loosen even more the screw and insert the needle.

Here's a lousy graphic of what the sewing assembly will look like, the C is the screw and the v is the eye of the needle:
