Is it the first time you are going to use the machine?
can you notice any broken parts?

forgive me if I give you this note but I have no idea about the level of your knowledge on how to use the machine. this might help if its the first you are going to use a sewing machine:

loosen the screw that's holding the needle, insert the needle with the flat side of the needle facing the screw and the arc side is facing you then tighten the screw.

How to fix needle on a machine


Turn the hand-wheel counterclockwise until the needle is at the highest point. Lower the guide or presser foot. This will give the maximum room possible for working with the needle.
Turn the needle clamp screw counterclockwise until the needle comes loose. This screw is located on the side of the small
box, known as the needle clamp, that holds the needle in place.
Remove the old needle by pulling it straight down and then angling it outward. Place a new needle into the holding slot or needle clamp.
Tighten the new needle into place by turning the clamp screw clockwise until tight. Do not over-tighten the needle.


Here's a tip
Use a needle that is appropriate for the type of fabric you are sewing. Using the wrong needle may result in breakage and increase the number of needles to be changed
Over-tightening a needle can cause it to be crooked and break. Turn the clamp screw only until the needle feels stiff in place.

here's a link for a manual for the machine

Zigzag stitch problems on brothers pc-420 sewing machine


Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly
flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle
groove of needle faces away from the shaft

Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle.
Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.

3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem
8.size of needle & thread & the fabric are not compatable
