Brother PC8500 stuck in left needle straight stitch position. Screen acts like it's letting one choose a stitch, but it won't change. It makes a noise as though it's trying.

These machines are known to freeze up in the needle bar crank, even when only a couple of hours old. If it is less than a year old, a Brother certified service center will fix it under warranty.

Needle hits the quilting presser foot


Needle may be slightly bent. Needle may not be properly or fully inserted into the needle clamp or holder. Needle may even have a burr on it or be too dull. Needles must be changed fairly often, especially with many of the modern synthetic fabrics. They do not last forever.

Change the needle first, for a new one, be sure it is properly inserted. Then, make sure you have not accidentally set your stitch width incorrectly. I've done that myself after using a zig zag stitch mode and forgetting to change it, or not change it all the way back to straight stitching.

Some machines will allow the needle to be set at centre, left of centre or right of centre, so be sure it's in the correct place for the stitch and foot you are using, or you will hit the foot.

Hope one of those turns out to be the right tip.

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.

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

Needle position won't hange


When you turn the machine on does the needle bar initialize? I.e. Move to the left, then to center.

Needle postion


If you mean left or right with a straight stitch, then yes. You use the stitch width selector - you will notice a small raised section in 3 locations, they mark, far left, center and far right.
