Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
I have a Janome machine, brand new, and the needle won't go in the whole anymore. It keeps hitting the plate on the back of the whole. I know how to put the needle in and I have changed it a few times to see if it wasn't a faulty needle. But nothing changes. I happenned after I did a backward straight stich and it won't work anymore. Help!
Remove your needle plate, clean around it, turn the handwheel to see if the hook will catch your thread(Like you are trying to bring up the bobbin thread). If it catches okay, put the plate back on and as you tighten the screw push the plate towards the rear of the machine. Reassemble everything, rethread , insert a bobbin and try it by turning the handwheel again. If it still hits, you need a service. If it doesn't, have fun!!
