Be careful! It may be the zig-zag stepper motor, it may also be the main board. You could try to get a junker off of ebay but a dealer may be your only help.

Fabric won't move doing straight stitch.


Be sure that the stitch length is set to a higher number. The closer to zero it is set, the closer the stitches will be until zero when it will actually be sewing in one place.

While sawing the embroidery holder moves as well, looks like its not falling into its place correctly after embroidery, how can I fix it? Also I've self checked the machine but cant get the zi


YOUR MACHINE USES A PULSE MOTOR (SMALL MOTOR) THAT CAUSES THE NEEDLE ARM TO MOVE. IF THE MOTOR IS A PROBLEM THEN YOUR ZIGZAG STITCH AMONG OTHER STITCHES WON'T WORK. YOUR HOOP I'M NOT SURE BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HOLDER ISN'T LOCKING WHEN YOU PUSH THE HOOPS ON. LOOK INSIDE THE HOLE WHERE YOU PUSH THE HOOP AND TOUCH ON EACH SIDE AND PLACE PRESSURE TO SEE IF THEY BOUNCE BACK. ANYWAY, YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL REPAIR SHOP ON BOTH OF THESE PROBLEMS.

Our simple 3116 won't zigzag stitch,the needle is off to the right and will not do any other stitches. Help!!


It won't do straight stitch?
Take the needle out... see if it is moving the fabric when you press on the presser foot. If it is not, then you need to raise the feet (it's under the accessory box/table face. If it does move the fabric. Make sure your machine is set to Zig Zag. again without needle... sew. Does the needle bar move? change to straight stitch, does the needle bar move? If it does I think you have the wrong size needle. If it does not, I'm afraid your plastic machine has broken... take it in for repair.

Why does my Empisal sewing machine miss stitches , sew, miss, sew?


Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly
5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked
For a timing problem,, the feeddogs may need to be checked to see why they are not moving the fabric thru the machine.

Sewing machine problem


You need to open up the machine and place a few drops of oil around the zigzag mechanism. Afterwards, manually move the mechanism back and forth until it is loose. I would place a couple of drops of oil at each joint when you open up the machine. I would say both top and bottom of the machine to loosen every joint.

Machine won't zig zag even though the needle goes from side to side the line of stitching is straight.


put in a new needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin--use every thread guide
make sure the zig zag settings are correct
it's also possible that the machine could have a worn or damaged gear or cam--which would have to be checked at a sewing machine shop

I can't remember how to make the needle position on my 1630 Bernina stay either to the left or right so that I can insert a zipper with my zipper foot. Can you help?


HI Evelyn,
sometimes its just the little things that stop your sewing project; so annoying isnt' it.

According to the manual I've found, this stitch width inner knob is turned to move the needle position. The outter part controls the zig zag width, so just move the inner knob to move the needle.

Hope that makes sense to you. Good luck finishing your project.

When it changes from straight stitch to sepintine and back to straight it skips lots of stitches. Just paid $300 for a new shaft.


try these suggestions & see if they help

Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

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?
