Your machine needs to be serviced. Sounds like it is seizing or may have a broken gear.

I have a bernina 730 and it does a fabulous straight stitch but it won't do zig zag or any ornamental stitches


Assuming this is the older mechanical Bernina 730 Record (not the new computerized model)...Sounds like your machine is seized due to dried oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

How do I Fix a Zipper Foot to my Janome sewing Machine


It should attach the same way any other presser foot attaches. If it is the square type with small holes or notches on each side, you move the needle to line up with one of those holes. If the needle does not have a separate side to side adjustment, usually you can move it using the width adjustment on the machine, as if you were going to stitch zig zag. If it is the long narrow kind, it will also have notches or holes on each side that you line up the needle with. Make sure the needle will go up/down without hitting the foot at all.

How do i thread a baby lock bl6150


Most sergers have a color guide. On my serger, the curved needle is threaded first, then the other bottom needle, then the top needle(s). The bottom horizontal needle is a trick, as you either need a special threader, or have to be very creative at getting it hooked on the left side (move the needle to the left side, first), then move the needle to the right and with the thread in the groove, thread the eye of the needle. Now, thread the top needles.

Toyota 8000 no longer sews zig zag, the needle can be moved to the side positions manualy

Zigzag blocked, only straight lines


In the upper portion of the machine, there is usually a cam mechanism that moves the needle side/side during a zig-zag stitch. It's possible that a pin or something has fallen into the machine & is preventing the needle-arm from moving properly.

There are usually only a few screws that hold the upper housing cover in place. Open it up and check the needle arm movement from there. Chances are, the problem will reveal itself thru a close inspection of the moving parts involved.

Singer 7464


I don't have that machine but my needle moves when I touch the needle sign and use the + or - to move the needle to the left or right. Presser foot and needle must both be up.

Needle position won't lock in


Sounds like the needle bar alignment is broken. When you turn on the machine, does the needle move from left to right and then goes to center? This is called calibrating to center. I suspect it doesn't. Best recommendation is to take to local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Service Technical Department for repair. A list of authorized Husqvarna Viking dealers can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Needle Keeps Moving While Sewing and Bobbin Wont Thread


Hi Nikki,

The problem seems to be of the needles alignment. If you are using a half bobbin type (D type) needle, makes sure you have used the proper number & size and also fastened it well so that the flat side is firmly fixed/clasping the inner side of the needle hold. That black thing which I feel is the fly-nut that helps you tighten/clamp the needle to its hold. Then after having done that, slowly turn the wheel manually to see whether the needle is going in thru the hole in a straight line and if you can, look underneath to se if the knotter ring (the one that looks like having fangs) comes close as the neele advances inward. All these movements HAVE TO BE syncronised. Only then you will be able to stitch the fines of fabrics speedily. Also make sure oyu are not tugging on the front end of the fabric too hard as this may cause the needle to go in a diagonal manner thus causing it to snap. Take care as to NOT to be too close to the needle while at high speeds. The snapping pieces can fly right into your eyes/nose causing serious injury.

Hope that does it Nikki...
