How do I adjust the needle position for straight sewing?


The stitch Width selection regulates straight-stitch or zig-zag width. Needle position does not determine straight or zig-zag. Needle position just determines whether the needle's home position is center, left, or right. Needle position can be used with straight or zig-zag stitching.

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.

How do I center the needle on a Viking 6430; there is no eccentric adjustment on the needle bar frame on this model.


Am having difficulty finding information on this machine.

Perhaps this machine is a left-needle position machine, ie the normal straight stitch sewing position is on the left, not centered. There are quite a few machines out there with this feature, Necchi is another. The needle only swings right when a decorative or zig-zag stitch is selected.

If it is actually a center-needle position machine, it is probably out of alignment. There is most likely an adjustment. For more help, you can also join some Viking user groups on Yahoo. Most members are very dedicated to the brand and would be able to provide some very helpful advice.

The needle always moves to the left. How do I keep it centered?


On some machines, there is a needle position setting, or a stitch selection for left, right and center of the needle position.

Sewing machine sews good in center needle position, why does it not stitch,when moving needle position to right f left?


Hopefully it is a bent needle. Replace the needle first. If that doesn't work you will need an adjustment made on the hook. That is when you will need to take your machine to the repairman.

Some machines are not designed to sew the straight stitch with the needle in the center position. Some are left or right position to do that and it is simply the way they were designed. Linda at Relics

My needle keeps hitting the throatplate, (I have broken 2). It was working fine. I don't know what I have done to cause this! e.


Hello,

First, check the position of your needle.Machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle left, right,or center. If your needle is not in the correct position, it may be hitting your needle plate. If that doesn't work,change your needle plate.
If you've been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.

I hope this helps.
