Cannot keep the needle from zig aging when using zip foot this is bernina 1630. It was working five one day and the next it went to zig zag.

Does it straight stitch with a zig zag foot? Go back into the menu and clear everything then go to straight stitch, then press the little buttons beside the Zig Zag dial to position the needle left or right

Have you changed your presser foot over to the zig zag foot? On some machines it won't work correctly until you change to the correct presser foot.

Cant get tension correct when zig zag on really strechy material

Be sure you are using a ball-point needle. Try setting the upper tension looser. You also may need to increase the presser foot pressure on your machine (consult your owner's manual if you don't know how to do this). Using a closed-toe presser foot (vs an open-toe embroidery foot) may help control the fabric and prevent it from puckering under the needle. Also, reducing the width of the zig-zag may be helpful.

Some sewing machines have an overlock presser foot. Effectively, there is a thin piece of metal in the center of the presser foot. The needle will straddle that piece of metal in a zig-zag so the upper thread has a little bit of slack in each stitch that will let the fabric lie flat. It is a very nice tool to have especially when zig-zag finishing raw edges too.

C9store overlock presser foot how to video

Some sewists will increase the fabric's "body" by inserting a layer of wash-away or tear-away stabilizer. If it is only a small project, a piece of paper added to the seam (like adding machine paper) will help stabilize the fabric.

One last thing to try would be loosening the bobbin tension. However, there is a reason it is the last effort, because most sewists are uncertain about messing with the bobbin and it is also requires "minute" adjustments to effect a big change.

The needle keeps breaking

Either you have the wrong foot installed or your stitch setting is incorrect. Dial in a narrower setting. You may have a zig-zag setting without the zig-zag foot attachment, or your "width" dial is too wide for the foot's hole. Slowing turn the wheel and watch where the needle penetrates the foot hole. A collision at that point will break your needle every time!

Zig-zag settings

you probably shouldn't be using a zig zag for that application. But the multi-stitch zig zag.

Please look at page 40 of your manual for information.

As for needle breaking check to make sure your need is the correct one for the thread and fabric. Also make sure your pressure foot is the one recommended for the stitch. Consider this... most thicker fabrics require a longer stitch.

I cannot get my tension adjusted correctly. I have lost my manual. Can you give me some help. Also, do I need a separate foot for the zig zag stitch.

usually a tension of 3 or 4 is good
only if the presser foot not is not made for zig zag--all the presser foot's that I've seen on new machines do straight stitch & zig zag,, if the opening in the foot is large then manually try a zig zag stitch to see

I need to adjust the needle so when I zig zag it will not hit the plastic. It works perfect on stright stitch.

You might have the zig zag set for z-z left or right-hand. Make sure you are choosing the zig zag centre stitch. Also check you are using the correct foot - it should be the A or B foot with the wide opening.
