Brother Profile 951 Breaking Needles

Postby cbittner » Fri Aug 21, 2015 1:44 pm

Hi,

I'm new to sewing with machines, so forgive me if I don't know much of the language yet. I recently got an old sewing machine that says Brother Profile 951 on the side. I don't have a manual, and I could find any information online about it, so I decided to ask here.

First of all, does anyone know about this model? How old it is?

Second, the shuttle (I think this is the term? Where the bobbin case goes) is hitting the new needles I'm putting in, and it broke the first one, so I haven't been using the pedal. I know it didn't hit the presser foot or the needle plate. I have a video of what is happening, and some pictures.

And here is a video of the problem I am having: the needle is getting caught and bending:

The video is stretched a little, but I think you can see what's going on.

Any and all help is welcome, and thanks!
