New project call for stitch length of 12. Is that about a number 2 on my 153 machine

The 12 probably refers to the number of stitches to an inch, so probably a 2.2 to 2.4 may be sufficient. A setting of 2.5 is probably closer to 10 stitches per inch. Twelve stitches per inch is good for most garment stitching. The stitches are not too far apart to allow popped stitches under stress and gapping between stitches nor too close together that would make it difficult to remove stitching when correcting a mistake.

Need to do a satin stitch on Bernini 1630

Just set it for a short stitch length and a wide zig-zag. Test it and keep adjusting the stitch length so the thread will not overlap from stitch to stitch but also that the stitches are close enough so no fabric shows between the stitches.

I have a Elna air electronic 68, I am not able to use different function. Like thr preprogrammed.

Your AE 68 will have three dials across the front, from L-R, stitch selector, stitch width and stitch length. To sew any stitch with a sidewise needle movement, you will need to turn the stitch selector to that stitch on the selector, then turn the stitch width to between 3 and 4 and the stitch length to a similar setting, adjusting to get the stitch formation you need. To sew with the discs, set all the dials to zero, then insert a cam into the Elnagraph on top of the machine. Then turn the selector to the disc icon, and the stitch length around to the "S" and stitch width to 4.

Don't use reverse if using the elnagraph stitches.

How do I correct stitch length mechanism to produce 6 stitches per inch?

the stitch length is governed by the cam action connected to the walking foot
that means that the stitch length is governed by the amount of material that is pulled through in the period of time that the needle comes up and goes down
normally the cam action is set by the stitch length lever/ reverse lever
if there is a necessity for a longer stitch, the cam would have to be changed on the drive shaft underneath
That will require a discussion with a sewing machine mechanic to determine if there are cams or other linkages that can be fitted to alter the stitch length for the manufactured maximum

Screen is frozen

sadly I must say these SMART machines are not as great as sliced bread, take it to a repair shop and have them fix the problem.

What does C4 mean in knitting

I believe it means a 4 stitch cable or a stitch made with 4 threads. I found this on a knitting website and it might help:

"A 4-stitch cable will be made with 4 stitches, a 6-stitch cable with 6 stitches and so on. Most of the time these sets of stitches are divided equally.
For the 4-stitch cable the first 2 stitches are slipped purlwise onto a cable needle or double pointed needle whichever you prefer. You will knit the next two stitches on your left needle, and then knit the two stitches from the cable needle. The knitting stitches are crossed over each other and you have created a nice little cable stitch."

Here is a YouTube video for the stitch: How to Knit The 4 Stitch Cable

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

Usb freezes up

If you're trying to see the embroidery designs on the stick, the embroidery unit has to be on the machine to view the designs in the larger size, so be sure to have it hooked up. If you're trying to select the regular stitches and the screen freezes, you need to take it in for service. You have a 5 year electrical / computer warranty on parts if you are the original purchaser. There will be a labor charge if it's over 1 year old.
