I have a Singer 2273
Probably depends where the break occurred. If there is still a piece of the spool pin in place, you can try slipping a piece of a plastic drink straw (like the drink straws at MacDonald's) over the remaining piece and using it as a spool pin. You may be able to find a handyman who can create an alternative. Or you can take it for service.

Needle not going all the way through
check that you have the correct needle
some machines use a needle with a flat side that correctly aligns the eye with the hook
and others just have a round needle that you have to take care in installing it
I suspect that your machine requires needles with a flat side if there is a small block stopping the needle from going in
read your operators manual or discuss it witj a sewing machine retailer

Brother sewing machine model XL-6562.needle holder came off rod.n
The needle holder has a screw right above the screw that holds the needle in place. It really doesn't look like a screw because it does not appear to have a slot for a screwdriver. However, with a small flat head screw driver you can tighten it up. There is also a curverd wire that must be inserted into a slot at the bottom of the holder. The screw tightens against the wire that tightens against the post. (It's a curved wire that curves around the front part).
