This is a generic answer as I don't know the model of your machine but usually the cause is because it needs cleaning and oiling. Usually its because parts have become gummed up from old oil etc. Start off with a hair dryer and blow some heat behind the knob and the parts attached to it. This will soften up the old stuff. You should then use sewing machine oil (or a penetrating oil, WD-40 is not good though, it dries and hardens fast) on any metal parts that move. Work the mechanism slowly little by little until it frees up.
Hope this helps.

Janome 4800. How do I adjust the needle to the center of the foot?


Consult your owner's manual. Somewhere on your machine there is a knob, dial, or a screen option to move the needle right, center, or left. (Try page 25 under Variable Needle Position)

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.

Sewing machine sews good in center needle position, why does it not stitch,when moving needle position to right f left?


Hopefully it is a bent needle. Replace the needle first. If that doesn't work you will need an adjustment made on the hook. That is when you will need to take your machine to the repairman.

Directions for making a buttonhole with an Elna SU


A transcript from the Elna SU manual reads as follows, and the manual can be viewed on line at http://sewingonline.co.uk/instructions/elnasp/

First make a few trial runs with a scrap of material exactly as the buttonhole will be stitched, with the machine adjusted as you intend to use it.
1. Use the embroidery and buttonhole foot. It can be chnged without a screwdriver by using the fixation screw.- With the stitch width knob at "0", turn the selector to zigzag "1".
2. De-center the needle to the left.
3. Set the stitch width knob at 2, with the solid mark on top.
4. Set the stitch length dial between 1/2 and 1/4.
5. a) Mark the desired length on the material.
b) Sew the first side of the buttonhole. Stop with the needle in the material and the mark (right).
c) Raise the foot and pivot the material round the needle. Lower the foot and raise the needle.
6. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Sew a few stitches. Raise the needle.
7. a) Set the stitch width knob at 2.
b) Sew the second side and stop just short of the length of the first. Raise the needle.
8. a) Set the stitch width knob at 4.
b) Finish off the buttonhole by sewing a few stitches. Raise the needle.
9. a) Set the stitch width knob at "0".
b) Sew a few stitches to fasten the threads, holding the material back by hand.
10. Open with the buttonhole knife, which you will find in the accessory box.

Some machines are not designed to sew the straight stitch with the needle in the center position. Some are left or right position to do that and it is simply the way they were designed. Linda at Relics

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.

Try locating the needle position knob that shows a single dot in each of the 3 positions (left, center and right).

It might look like this

Will not sew a locked stitch and the thread keeps pulling out of the needle. Perhaps I have it threaded wrong. I cannot find the manual that came with the machine.


Maybe the needle isn't in correctly. The flat side of the needle faces right, Also, manual says it will use only Singer Red Band regular point style 2020 size 14 needles. I would think any brand, regular point, size 14 would work.

Threading this dog it not intuitive, and keeping it threaded is a continous task.
Next: Threading
!. Unwinding off spool clockwise --- up from the back through the **** on top . Do NOT wrap thread around tension disc (little round thingy) that is at the ****.

2.On the left end of the knob that looks like a sideways spool there are two silver discs. Slide the thread between them. Make sure it doesn't jump out (at any point during your task)and go one step to the left, between disc and sewing machine. Then down to:

3.Thread straight through 1/4" metal loop at knob-like thread guide. then thread makes a u-shaped trip up the knob-shaped guide to the take-up lever.. Thread tends to slip behind this guide, but needs to stay in the center.

4. Through the take-up lever, right to left, then down to thread guide next to needle, pulls through from back to front then through needle left to right.

OR IT could be the bobbin holder....not even going there right now. Good luck.
