Sewing machine skipping stitches

My machine was sewing fine, it is only 9 months old. A while back I had to replace the needle because it broke. I am not sure if I replaced it with the right size, 90-14. It is sewing straigh stitch just fine, but skip with any of the decorative stitching I try to use. I do not have a manual and I was wondering if someone could confirm or deny whether or not I replaced it with the correct size, and what other than the needle could be the problem. Thankyou so much for all your help.

I have a necchi sewing machine and having trouble with stitches sewing regular stitches then I get a long one

It is skipping stitches.

Use a brand new needle that is a suitable type for the fabric and thread you are sewing. If sewing knit, use a ball-point needle. If sewing woven fabrics, use a sharp needle (ie universal,
Use good quality sewing thread--no old or bargain bin variety.
Be sure to install the needle facing the correct direction. On most machines, the flat side of the needle faces the back of the machine, however, if the bobbin loads on the left side (not from the front), the flat side should face the throat of the machine.
There could also be a burr somewhere that is catching the thread and causing the skipped stitch.

Why does the stitches skip when I'm sewing?

Needle old or bent, incorrect size. Incorrect thread for material, packed with lint. The sewing foot is not on correctly or the needle is not pushed in high enough. Old thread. Hope this helps.

My machine is skipping stiches it seems its not picking up from the bobbin

Install a brand new needle and confirm it is inserted with the flat side facing the proper direction.. A bent, damaged needle will sometimes cause skipped stitches or even needle strikes inside the machine. A new needle is the least expensive cure for a lot of sewing machine problems. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing or at least when starting a new project.

Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Sometimes, skipped stitches will occur if the needle, thread, and fabric are incompatible. Be sure to use the correct needle for your project. Use a good quality thread--AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

If the machine continues to skip stitches, then it may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I think the timing is out on my janome 2039 sewing machine

It is very possible that the timing is off, which often occurs with broken needles. A common symptom is that the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. Missed stitches aren't necessarily timing related--be sure to install brand needles often and use the correct needle for the fabric & thread you are using. Using the wrong needle will often cause skipped stitches.

Skipped stitches

You will need to take your machine to a dealer and have it adjusted. Machines should be cleaned and serviced at least once a year. Needles should be replaced when dull. Skipping stitches can also be from using the wrong kind of needle. When quilting on cotton, use sharp needles, when sewing on knits use a ball needle. You can use a universal needle but they aren't perfect and will cause skipping on some fabrics.
