The Necchi machine has a lever in the bobbin area that lets you move the feed dogs up and down. If you accidentally moved that, the feed dogs are in the down position and won't feed the fabric forward. Make s ure you can feel the feed dogs slightly above the plate. If they aren't move the lever until they do. :)

If the settings are correct then its time for a cleaning and lube job on the machine.

How do I get it to sew something other than the basic straight stitch?


Your machine will have a touch screen or button to increase or decrease the stitch width. However, digital machines have to be set to the zigzag position in order for the width to take effect. On this machine the # 10 turns it on zigzag.

Stitch width knob


What's the model? Do you have the stitch selector set on straight stitch, or on a stitch with a width component, like a blind hem stitch?
Some machines consider straight stitch to be a zigzag stitch of width=0, while others have separate settings for a straight stitch and a zigzag (or other) stitch.

Why straight stitch will not work but zigzag and herringbone stitches work on my machine.


it sounds like the machine needs to be checked at a sewing
machine shop to see what's wrong with the cam's or gear
that makes the stitches

I altered the stitch to zigzag and now it wont stitch straight or anything!


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
adjust the top tension one number or letter higher till the stitch looks normal
if these suggestion don't help then the machine needs to be serviced

Straight stitch works fine, but,on any size zigzag the machine skips stitches


let me ask this,,
have you tried a new needle?
is the needle inserted correctly--if there is a flat side to the needle it should be to the back of the machine & pushed up inside the needle holder as far as it will go
is it the right size needle for the fabric & thread?

if you check all these things & none of these things help then it's possible the cams or gears that do the zigzag stitch could be worn some.which means it needs to be serviced

I have a necchi 4595, and well I cannot figure out the straight stitch....the dial doesn't show one?


It's just in the front panel, where the drawing of all the built in stitches are, it's the drawing number eleven from the left, you'll see a zig zag (red) and a straight stitch (black) Select A group of stitches (knob with the arrow) and then select the eleventh stitch (same knob but use the dial, look the manual) and then select zero on your stitch width dial. Hope that helps :)

Zigzag issues


Either you have the setting on a variation of ZZ which steps forward several stitches then one to the side (ZZ), so check that first.

If you are certain it is on the correct ZZ setting, and this is a recent purchase, phone the dealer tell them the issue and arrange to take it back for them to adjust, it is almost certainly ever so slightly out of timing.
