CAn a brother lock 9290 sewing machine do just a straight stitch?


YES. ALL SEWING MACHINES DO STRAIGHT STITCH. EVEN IF YOU WOULD SET THE STITCH SELECTOR TO A ZIGZAG YOU COULD STILL SEW STRAIGHT STITCH BY SETTING THE WIDTH TO ZERO. OTHERWISE YOU COULD JUST USE THE STRAIGHT STITCH CHOICE.

Machine not picking up a zig zag stitch


it's possible that the cam that makes the zigzag stitch could be worn or damaged, it would probably be a good idea to have the machine checked.

Appearence of loop and no zigzag stich on ls-2125i brother


The loopy stitching is usually do to threading the machine with the presser foot down.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread or pull about 8" of thread through the needle and see if the loopy stitches go away.

This may also be the issue with the zig-zag stitch.

When the machine is threaded with the presser foot down, the tension is closed and the thread cannot enter as it should for the tension to control the flow of thread to the needle. The thread then feeds too fast and the stitching is distorted.

Brother ls2125 won't zigzag stitch


that sounds like a timing issue if it will pick up every now and then i would recommend taking it to a brother dealer for repair as timing is not easy to set

Machine sews zigzag although stitch is set at 0 for straight


It must be a design flaw- things don't always last like they are supposed to. I would personally check the physical reason it is not responding... knowing what it would take to make it stop moving- or whatis causing it to. *perhaps the switch isn't working to stop it- or the mechanism that controls it is worn down. If it was new- I'd return it- but there are only a few options at this point.
