Changing the Needle

If the needle is bent or the tip of the needle is broken, replace the needle with a new one. Use the
included Allen screw driver to replace the needle with one that is designed specifically for this machine
and that passes the test described in "Checking the needle" on page 33.

Replacing the needle

a
Turn off the embroidery machine.
CAUTION
• Be sure to turn off the embroidery machine
before replacing the needle, otherwise injuries
may result if the machine starts sewing.
b
Loosen the needle set screw and remove the
needle.
Hold the needle with your left hand, and then hold the
Allen screw driver in your right hand and turn the
needle set screw counterclockwise.
Note
• Be sure to use the included Allen screw
driver to replace the needle, otherwise too
much force may be applied to the needle,
causing it to break.
86
• Do not apply extreme force when loosening or
tightening the needle set screw, otherwise the
machine may be damaged.
c
With the flat side of the needle toward the
back of the machine, insert the needle all
the way up until it touches the needle bar
stopper.
Pass the needle through the hole in the presser foot,
and then use the needle changing tool to lift up the
needle.
