When I turn on my designer 1 the needle is off center to the right, not centered. Also when selecting a zig zag or other decorative stich it sews something different. Have tried recalabrating the screen no luck. Procedure I used. I selected set at the top of the screen, then pressed more twice at the bottom of screen, then touch screen adjust, then two red x's appeared I touched the top one it turned green then touched bottom one it turned green , then save. Nothing happened still the same problem

These machines are computers are just that: COMPUTERS. Nothing to do but have a mechanic ltake a ook at it for possible fix. It is not communicating with the brain since settings are off. There is a manual on ebay for $5.99 that is a three-part CD and I suggest you go on-line and buy it. It will hep with parts, service and how-tos for your D-1. I have it and find it invaluable for fixing my own machines. Hope this helps.

Brother sewing machine model AS1430S not picking zig zag stich....on zig zag stich option it is only giving straight stich.....plz help


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, then the machine may be slightly out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a Singer S18, stitches perfect. Attempted to use Zig Zag stich and decorative stitches, These are not working, It will make a few stitches then keeps stitching in place. Any Suggestions? Thanks


You probably need to widen the stitch width before it will let you sew. Or change the pressed foot to accommodate the movement of the needle when making decorative stitches.

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.

When i use the zig zag stich, sometimes the stich falls and does not zig zag


try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed

could be a problem with the cam that does the zig zag, you might need to have the machine checked

if your sewing with light weight fabric also try using stablizer

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.

Can I go from straight stitches to zigzag stiches and back in the same seam?


Hi Susie,

I can't tell whether you mean straight stitching and then turning your work 180 degrees to stitch atop the straight stitches in zig-zag, or continuing around the corner of your straight stitched side using zig-zag. But you can do either. You can mix up straight and zig-zag stitching at will.

Just ease up to a stop, ensuring the needle is positioned down inside the work when you stop.
Lift the foot.
Adjust to your desired stitch setting.
Lower the foot.
Turn the wheel toward you manually to ensure the stitches will be placed where you want them, and
Slowly engage the power again (via foot or thigh lever).

Hope this helps.

When trying to put the needle in the far left position an error or fix it pops up


I think the needle mechanism is out of adjustment. In the center position, is the needle centered over the hole in the needle plate (check with a plate that has the single hole for straight stiching, not the slotted hole for zig-zag sewing). Take it to a professional for a tune up.

Needle does not align with the hole and presser foot


Sounds like a bend needle, try a new one, or else your needle plate and foot is for straight stich, put the machine in center needle postion, and reduce the zig zag to 0 or none.

Good luck and happy sewing, please rate my solution

Needle arm is not centered and will not center. when machine is turned on the needle arm moves completely to the left outside of the range it should be in.


You probably have your machine on a different stitch than a straight stich, such as zig zag or a button hole.
