Usually that means to stitch length balance needs adjusting. Adjustment usually must be made by an authorized service technician for your machine. Check your user manual to determine if you can adjust the stitch length balance.

Good luck.

I have turned my dial to the zigzag option, yet it is still sewing a straight stitch. How can I fix this problem?


UPDATE: It appears that your machine is computerized. Probably best to take it for service. Oiling will most likely damage your machine and do nothing toward resolving the issue.

===========================

Please provide the make & model of your machine. If it is a mechanical machine, most likely the machine has seized so that the needle does not do the appropriate swing for zig-zag or decorative stitches. A good cleaning and oiling with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil will take care of a mechanical that is seized.

I cannot get the green decorative stitches to work. I'm insure if my Bernina 930 is broken or I'm just unfamiliar with this machine. How do I set my machine for the embroidery stitches?


There are 2 levers on the top that need to be set. One shows the green stitch selections. That needs to be set to your stitch choice. To its right, there is another lever called the "changeover lever." It needs to be pushed all the toward the back of the machine--that switches it from straight stitch to decorative stitch.

Then on the bottom front on the right is a large knob. Both the outer ring of the knob and the inner knob perform different functions. One drops the feed dogs for darning or raises to activate the feed dogs to pull the fabric through the machine. The other part switches between the red and green stitch selections. When that knob is turned the light should show green or red to coordinate with the stitch selection lever on the top of the machine.

So to make decorative stitches, there are 2 levers that need to be moved plus the red/green activator knob. In addition, you will want to adjust the stitch width dial and the stitch length lever to widen or lengthen the stitch.

I am having troubles with the decorative stitches bought used


Difficult to diagnose. Try a brand new needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric.

If the machine is mechanical, it may need cleaning and oiling if the decorative stitch mechanism is sticking.

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

All my decorative stitches are comming out straight


it sounds like something has happened to the cam gears that
do the decorative stitches, which means the sewing machine needs
to be checked..
but before you have the machine checked,, make sure all the
dial that are used for decorative stitches are at the right setting
one missed setting can cause a lot of problems

Husqvarna Prisma 980 decorative stitch cassettes don't work


Hi,
On that machine, the cassettes aren't actually computer chips. Each cassette has a little spot of white on a certain little area you must find (top right I'm pretty sure). Look in the machine at that point. There is a sensor that looks for that white spot, and as it identifies it, it changes stitches according to that cassette. Either the sensor is blocked, gone bad, or you can put a fresh coat of white paint on with white out. I hope this helps.
