Why does the sewing needle come undone whilst sewing

Your Needlebar screw is not being tightened enough. This is dangerous and you can risk other damage to the machine.
Untighten screw that allows the needle to be removed, using the sharp end of the needle, insert it into the same hole the needle base fit into. Clean out, using needle tip and can air if you have any.
Dust and cloth fluff get repeatedly shoved into the needle bar until the needle isn't inserted enough and effects sewing.

Also the needlebar "head" may need to be replaced if the set screw that holds the needle in the needlebar is stripped and no longer working to hold needle properly.

Get it looked at by a repair shopASAP! you can lose an eye to a flying needle fragment if that needle is coming lose during sewing.

Line needle plate

try a new needle first, then if the needle doesn't line up with the needle plate, then the machine needs a ajustment or has a timing problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Thread gets stuck after second stitch

Let me guess,.... When you start to sew you do not grasp the loose thread ends. Grab them babies and hold on for about an inch or more of sewing.

Fixing a new needle on a sewing machine

Turn the hand-wheel counterclockwise until the needle is at the highest point. Lower the guide or presser foot. This will give the maximum room possible for working with the needle.
Turn the needle clamp screw counterclockwise until the needle comes loose. This screw is located on the side of the small
box, known as the needle clamp, that holds the needle in place.
Remove the old needle by pulling it straight down and then angling it outward. Place a new needle into the holding slot or needle clamp.
Tighten the new needle into place by turning the clamp screw clockwise until tight. Do not over-tighten the needle.

Here's a tip
Use a needle that is appropriate for the type of fabric you are sewing. Using the wrong needle may result in breakage and increase the number of needles to be changed
Over-tightening a needle can cause it to be crooked and break. Turn the clamp screw only until the needle feels stiff in place.

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.
