How do I change the needle ?
Sewing with a bent needle is extremely dangerous since the needle may break while the machine is being operated.
Before using the needle, place the flat side of the needle on a flat surface and check that the distance between the needle and the flat surface is even.
(1) Flat side
(2) Needle type marking
If the distance between the needle and the flat surface is not even, the needle is bent.
Do not use a bent needle.
(1) Flat surface
|(1) Mark on the handwheel|
Before replacing the needle, be sure to turn off the sewing machine, otherwise injuries may occur if the foot controller or the start/stop button is accidentally pressed and the machine starts sewing.
|(1) Presser foot lever|
Before replacing the needle, cover the hole in the needle plate with fabric or paper to prevent the needle from falling into the machine.
(1) Disc-shaped screwdriver
(2) Needle clamp screw
|(1) Needle stopper|
Be sure to insert the needle until it touches the needle stopper and securely tighten the needle clamp screw with the screwdriver, otherwise the needle may break or damage may result.
