The flat side goes to the back of the machine,, round needles have a small groove that you have to insert correctly

How do I get my Novum machine to stitch straight? Any help would be appreciated.

Consult your manual and verify that you have the machine set to straight stitch, not zig-zag.

My needle broke on my Brothers LS-2125 sewing machine. I need to order a new one - and I need to know how to change it. Please help!

You can use any brand of needle. The flat part of the needle faces back. Undo the little screw that holds the needle slightly until you can remove the old one. Put the new one in all the way up as far as it will go (flat to the back) and tighten the screw. I would recommend a size 14 ballpoint for regular sewing
