How do i move the needle from side to side please


Zig-zag? Set the stitch width to something larger than zero.

Needle Position? If your machine has the capability, there would be a needle position selector--usually for center, left or right. Newer machines would probably have more selections than the three.

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 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
