Hi , I am Tech Michael an expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)

3. Remember to leave a Positive Rating ,it doesn't cost anything additional to rate kindly;-)

I am only credited for my time and expertise if you rate kindly.

The needle has a set screw and a collar, if you loosen the screw and lift the color slightly you can replace the needle.

If that doesnt work, your machine will need a repair, but its a cheap fix on this one;-)

If that is the situation, you can check locally with the vacuum cleaner repair shops, most of them perform repaires on sewing machines as well;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!

I tried your suggestion about loosening the screw but the needle keeps falling off after I tightened it. Besides there are several screws in front and on the left side of the needle area
