Question about Husqvarna Designer I
In my case the problem was an error in the User Guide.
Press SET four times so that it displays SET 4. At the bottom right of the screen, where the User Guide shows a blank area, there is a setting for the maximum stitch width. If this is set to 0.0 you can only stitch straight. Change it to the other setting, typically 6.0.
Now go to ADJUST. At the bottom of the screen, the middle control is the actual stitch width, which you can set anywhere from 0.0 to the maximum. Set it to whatever width you want for the zigzag.

I did reply to this a few days ago, but the solution has not appeared for some reason?
The stitch width safety stays "on" when you turn the machine off. You need to go back into the SET menu and turn it off. Hopefully, this will fix it for you. You haven't by any chance got the Twin Needle setting turned on, have you? It is on the first page of the SET menu - look for the icons showing pictures of needles. The single needle icon should be the dark square. If this is okay, hit More twice and check that Stitch Width Safety is showing Off. One of the more recent machine software updates included the facility for using zig-zag stitches with the Sensor Q-foot. If your machine does not have this update, the buttons I am talking about might not be there, but maybe you should turn the Sensor Q-foot off too (unless you are actually using this foot, of course). Some of these buttons are greyed out if you have the embroidery unit attached, so do all your adjusting with the unit off the machine.
P.S. I did ask my technician once if there was any way to turn off or at least turn down that annoying beep, but he said not - sorry!
