Welcome to the site. If you ask you question in the interior section someone will come along and help you out. Not everyone checks the Introsection.

Did you put the new needle back in correctly, and did you use the correct needle for your machine? The correct needle is a 135X17. The needle needs to be installed as high up in the needle bar as possible with the scarf to the right and the groove to the left. It also sounds like your top tension may be too loose, which means you may not have re-threaded the machine correctly through the upper tension disks. Check out post #4 in this thread to see how your machine should be threaded: CLICK HERE

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
