Question about Brother XL2600 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

The needle clamp of my brother XL-6452 sewing machine fell off and I can't get it to go back on. when I slide it back onto the metal pole there is nothing for it to snap onto and no screw clamp to tighten it - so it falls right off. The needle itself is secure. I called Brother and they said I need a techician to attach it, but I'd really rather do it myself. Any suggestions on how I can fix it?

SOURCE: needle will not stay in?

Buy a new pack of needles to make sure you do not have defective needles, if that doesnt work get a new thumb screw and if it still doesnt work you need a new needle bar.

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.

SOURCE: needle clamp fell off. got a new one, but need

I have an XL6452 and the same problem. I figured out that you can use a tiny screw driver (or an allen wrench might work). I tried using the screw that tightens the needle but it didn't seem to work. The screw looks like it just a hole. It took a lot of turns to get it loose enough so you can put it on. You will see it come out.
Once you get it on you can tighten it.

Similar problem


That would be the thread guide. You need a small allen wrench to put this whole thing back on. There is a hole in the right side,looks like a hole, it's blackish, but is for allen wrench. The curved metal piece slides up into a tiny hole from the bottom near where needle enters then slide whole thing back on machine and tighten with allen wrench.
