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.

SOURCE: 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.

That can be tricky. Some thread guides and needle clamps have to be assembled and then slid up into place with the needle screw holding it together. Some have a set screw to hold it.

SOURCE: brother sewing machine model XL-6562.needle holder came off rod.n

The needle holder has a screw right above the screw that holds the needle in place. It really doesn't look like a screw because it does not appear to have a slot for a screwdriver. However, with a small flat head screw driver you can tighten it up. There is also a curverd wire that must be inserted into a slot at the bottom of the holder. The screw tightens against the wire that tightens against the post. (It's a curved wire that curves around the front part). The above info that was previously posted was almost dead on for me. The screw spoken about is called a set screw, which is a screw that is almost hollow. To lossen or tighten a set screw you use an allen wrench. The one on this machine is 5/64 th size. You can use a very small screwdriver if it fits tightly, but you must be careful not to strip the inside of the screw.

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

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

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.

when you put the needle in the needle clamp holder the flat side of the needle goes toward the back of the the machine when you tighten the needle clamp screw make sure it's holding the needle,,make sure you can't pull the needle back out of the clamp,, if you can something is wrong with the needle clamp or the screw

The thing you put the needle in and their is a wire thing that goes in there...that piece fell out and needle won't stay in...it's a brother XR-35


What fell out was the needle clamp gib - a small wedge-like part that presses on the needle to hold in place.

You may be able to get it repaired or replaced.

Search online for parts, or ask a sewing machine service tech for an estimate for having the machine repaired.
