SOURCE: Needle won't move on Bernina 930

If the machines motor is running but the needle isn't going up and down then the baste stitch finger is gummed up and needs to be serviced.  This is a simple fix and it happens all the time on those machines.  Take it to your local Bernina dealer for a standard service.  Also if you really need it in a pinch try pushing up on the needle bar that sometimes will fix the problem but it will still need serviced.

SOURCE: My machine Bernina 830 does not run.

Rose, most likely your machine is gummed up and needs oiling. A product called Tri-Flow is best. It can be purchased at most any hardware store. Or just use normal sewing machine oil. Open the top and put a fair amount of oil down behind the knobs and let it soak in. As it soaks just wiggle the knobs or turn them little by little back and forth until they free up. Don't force anything as something will break.
Good luck

I have the vintage Brother Riviera 1681, Model F no manual. For STRAIGHT, needle sews only in far left position, but it zig-zags just fine. How do I get needle to middle or right position?


I suspect that the left needle position is the default for your machine. Looking at the photo here, it certainly looks like that is the case. (What a nice looking machine!)

If you watch this video during the straight-stitch segment, you will see the needle is in the left position.

Some of the older machines were made this way--I have an old Nelco that is left default--tough machine, sews almost anything! Unfortunately, if you want a center-needle machine, you would have to buy something else. (Forget about any of the new plastic machines on the market. This Brother will out-sew and outlast them any day of the week.) On the other hand, this is probably a great machine, and once you get accustomed to the left needle, you'll be able to do anything that a center needle machine can do.

FWIW, a sewing machine whose bobbin loads on the left is usually left needle default.

How to position the needle


The needle will rise in the holder in only one direction. If you would turn it in any other direction it go up in the holder. Most needles have the flat part in the back or on the right side. Old black Singers is reversed where the needle has the flat part on the left.

Crazy question but .....how do you center the needle? Always sits to the left


Don't know about your particular model, but maybe left is the normal "resting" position. When on zigzag it will move to the right then back to the left. As long as all of your different stitch patterns keep the needle between the limits of the hole above the shuttle and does not hit the machine bed then I would best guess everything is fine.
Hope that is of some help.

When trying to use the zipper foot the needle will not stay positioned to the side and keeps returning to center hitting the center of the zipper foot and machine stops


set the machine to straight stitching which should keep the needle in the center position

It it still wanders , take it in for a service

Can't get the needle to go in all the way an stay.what could be the problem?


this question doesn't mention the name or model of the sewing machine

are the needles the correct ones for the sewing machine?

there are certain sewing machine that require only certain needles to used in the machine

or the needle may be turned wrong

the flat side of the needle normally goes to the back of the machine

then it's push up as far as it can go then tighten the screw

I have a new Singer 1507 sewing machine- needle position wrong


Turn the big knob on the right of your Singer 1507 machine so that the vertical stitch line in the center. (Currently your machine most likely has the vertical stitch line to the left.) Don't push your needle manually; you will damage the needle.

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.
