    I don't see where I can remove the needle holder.I don't want to stitch a zig zag stitch,was just trying to see if I could get the needle position to go to center.Needle does not change position when I tred the zig zag or other stitches that would require the needle to move back and forth.

  • mtnpleasure Sep 13, 2008

    I have no idea what you are talking about.
    Let me try one more time.The machine makes only straight stitches with needle not in center position.Will not make any other stitches,zig zag,blanket,overcast,blind hem, or other programable stitches.Is it possible it is te circuit board?

What is the model number and brand name please.

If this is a newer model you may have the progam/function
set on the wrong pattern


My wife uses a newer style with all this cool features on it but
it took a while to figure it out.

The needle may not be postioned correctly and also
check the shape (bent) or see if the arm lookes bent
the part that holds the needle.  Just turn it on and watch how it looks
if it is normal up and down and it is not lose or bent you may just need to 
adjust it

Thank you

    your machine if it newer has 2 or 4 small screws holding the needle on.
    You need the tool to loosing them (hex wrench or alan wrench)

Hi . The lock has a clamp arm which receives a threaded fastener and a needle tube arm which has a bore which receives the needle tab. The arms are integrally formed from stainless steel or other suitable sterilizable material. The lock is positioned about the needle tube and may be rotated relative to the needle tube retainer to a selected position and secured by tightening the fastener against the retainer. In this way, the tattoo machine is usable even if the retainer is broken or damaged.

My jones sewing machine wont stitch straight just zig zag tried moving parts


Probably the zig-zag mechanism has seized from lack of oil/cleaning. Pick up fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and apply a couple drops every place where metal rubs against metal (including the zig-zag mechanism). Do NOT oil any rubber or leather parts (belts)!!!

Then apply heat from a handheld hairdryer. Repeat until it loosens.

How do I adjust the needle position for straight sewing?


The stitch Width selection regulates straight-stitch or zig-zag width. Needle position does not determine straight or zig-zag. Needle position just determines whether the needle's home position is center, left, or right. Needle position can be used with straight or zig-zag stitching.

Model 930.Why is presser foot not lined up correctly?


Is your needle position centered? The round dial on the top right is a combination zig-zag stitch width selector and the center silver dial selects the needle position. If it is pointed at the #2, then the needle should be centered and something (probably the needle bar) has been knocked out of alignment on your machine (which would probably mean repair service).

Also, if the needle is hitting the presser foot, you probably have a straight stitch foot on your machine which requires the needle be centered. To do any decorative or zig-zag stitching, the presser foot needs to have a wide space for the needle to swing back and forth. The zig-zag foot is marked with a zero.

Bernina 930 change needle position


Look at the knob which creates the zig-zag stitch (1-4) at the top right of your 930. In the center of that is a silver knob that rotates right and left. That silver switch moves the needle position right and left.

Needle position


Hmmm sounds like an issue I had/have with a singer stylist. There is a knuckle part that connects the zig zag mechanism to the needle bar. Mine had a pin that kept slipping out. When I took it apart (and lost the pin) I also discovered that the "round" holes the pin went into were work out and were more like ovals. The machine is now a parts machine.

I can not figure out how to set a straight stitch. I don't want a zig zag or a decorative stitch. How do i set my machine to do this?


First, make sure you select the straight stitch setting on the round dial. It is the one that has the dashed lines, looking like the stitch itself. Then, you may also want to be sure that the stitch WIDTH (dial with the picture that looks like a straight line gradually turning into a zig-zag) to the lowest setting, which is generally 0. With some machines, even after selecting a straight stitch setting, moving the stitch width can change needle position. Sometimes it will initiate the zig zag, other times it will move needle position left to right. Does that fix it?

Do not know how to position the needle so it is in the center position? Where do I do it?


Turn the lower knob on the right hand side of your sewing machine. This is the control for the stitch selector (like zig-zag, buttonhole, etc.). You will see 3 straight stitch settings. One is for left, one for center, and one for right. Align the orange indicator with the center line & voila.

Zig Zag Stitch not working


THis problem occurred as I was sewing on Neoprene. I was using Gutterman all-purpose thread and a size 80 needle. Tried switching to a size 70, then to size 90. Still unable to zig zag. After inserting a test sample of cotton, the zig zag worked perfectly, so I knew it was not a mecahnical problem. I switched needles again. This time to size 90 for stretch fabric. Voila! Problem solved.
