My 600e is having a needle problem. When I go to insert

Customer Question

My 600e is having a needle problem.
When I go to insert needle it won't go all the way up so the screw can secure it.
i have changed the needle several times with no problem and I know how to insert needle the right way. I was just changing needles--same one I had used before--and it wouldn't go back in. Can you help me?

Hi Gloria,

Check for any lint or other debris in the hole.

Try using a very small amount of machine oil to help the needle slide in.

Let me know if that helps?
