The adjustment for the Needle Up/Down speed, commonly known here as the #8 screw, is at the back of your machine, on the "non-thread" side of your machine (NOT the side you load a cone of thread on). You want to SLOW that up/down speed, so that the sensor in your machine has a chance to realize that the needle is actually up. That little gold screw needs BIG turns to have any effect.

And here's the document from the APQS manual. It covers older and newer models.
