Take it in because that sounds serious, call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and find an authorized service center to take it in to. You do not want to void your warranty.

The needle bar keeps falling off.

If you're talking about the bar that goes into the front of the machine and goes up and down, apply some BLUE threadlocker to the screw that holds it in place. You must remove the screw and apply only one drop to the screw threads before reinserting it.

My needle holder will not hold the needle in tightly what could be causing this problem?

The threads of the screw that holds the needle clamp could be stripped or worn.

The needle clamp can be replaced. You can get this from a sewing machine dealer who does the repairs or, order from the Internet.

Stretching a piece of Teflon tape (a plumbing product and not expensive) around the threads of the screw can provide a short-term fix.

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 needle holder came off the pin that holds the sewing foot in place. It appears a part is broken

Not familiar with the XL-5340 but I have an XL-6562 - mine has done the same thing. There is a small black screw that requires an allen wrench to adjust. It is on the right hand side of the needle holder. Apparently it just works loose over time and with use. My son put the holder back on, adjusted that screw with an allen wrench and it has been fine. Not sure what to tell you though about the missing thread guide. Maybe it will be ok without that - I guess try it and see.
