The camstack is out of line with the selector bar in the top of the machine, you will need an engineer to adjust it

SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

SOURCE: I recently received 2 White

Re the bobbins it is the depth that sounts and some of the plastic bobbins are the same as the metal ones(I used to sell sewing machines)so as long as they are same depth when put side by side and same circumferance then another type will be fine. Ive only found 2 different depths in the plastic ones so I dont know which you have. Not sure what has happened with your stitch lentgh. Check the stitch selector is properly on a straight stitch and that the other stitches are correct. A s/mach technician may be able to alter it for you but yo can do no more on that.

SOURCE: Brother ls2125 won't zigzag stitch

that sounds like a timing issue if it will pick up every now and then i would recommend taking it to a brother dealer for repair as timing is not easy to set

Janome MC9400.Can needle position on U6 stretch stitch be altered.I want it to go more to the right. Also is there a way to just alter needle position without selecting a stitch first?


The width of the needle setting is limited by the width of the hole in the needle plate and the presser foot. You really don't want to alter this unless it has been knocked off its specified setting.

Some machines are straight-stitch only, some have 3 position settings (left, center, right), and some newer machines have a variety of needle position settings. Whichever your machine has is what you can use.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

Although you have selected a zigzag have you also set the stitch width and length manually as required? Some stitch types have restrictions on the width you can set so it's important to know which these are.If you don't have the instruction book it is available as a free download from Janome. Go to www.janome.com, click on the Machines tab then choose 'retired' and scroll down until you find the 6125QC - the link to the user guide is in the top right corner of the specifications tab.

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?

My stitch length varies whilst I'm sewing. Why does this happen and what can I do to prevent this from happening?


Is the stitch selector set to a straight stitch or is it possibily in another stitch pattern but with the width turned down to zero?

If machine is set on a straight stitch but is giving varying stitch length for no reason then it could be that the feed dogs are not functioning correctly, could be out of time with the needle or very worn. Or are you pulling the fabric through rather than letting it feed through. Also check the pressure being delivered by the foot pressure if the machine has a variable adjustment for this. It may have just been turned down for very heavy fabric feeding and needs to be turned up to normal setting again.

Feed dogs can wear - replacement parts may be available. Just remember to search under either Janome or New Home as I believe New Home was bought out by Janome some years ago. Certainly New Home was a common brand in UK in the 80's.

You might find parts on www.sewingpartsonline.com or http://www.sewingparts.co.uk/

I hope that this helps you out.
