Default Needle broke!

I am completely new to this but I just bought a SWF 15 needle machine and while running a test stitch design, one of the needles broke. Can someone tell me or link me an article or video on how to change needles?

I looked through the manual but the section on changing the needle is quite vague and doesn't seem to have much pictures. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The needle clamp is the thing that the needle is connected to. Loosen the screw on the side of the needle clamp. (be careful and do not loosen it too much the clamp will fall off). Remove the broken needle.

Replace with the new needle. Make sure the groove at the front of the needle is facing to the front of the machine. Tighten the needle clamp.

Thread and stitch.

Hope this helps.

I hope you are doing well and learning about your machine. Embroidery can be a wonderful way to make a living, provided you enjoy it. Just keep on asking the questions, no question is silly. That is how you learn.

Loosen the clamp a bit and take out the needle, and replace with a new one, make sure you point its face int he right direction.
And never hesitate to give your vendor a call if you can't figure out something from the user manual, after all you've paid them a huge sum of bucks
