How do you move a needle to the right?
With the straight stitch (left needle position) and the triple stretch stitch, the needle position can be changed by pressing the plus (+) side of the stitch width adjustment key moves the needle to the right. Pressing the minus (-) side of the stitch width adjustment key moves the needle to the left.
Why is the needle not moving?
If the needle won’t move with the clutch engaged, unplug the sewing machine and check the drive belt. Replace the drive belt if it’s broken. If the drive belt is okay, an internal drive gear failure is likely preventing the needle from moving.

What allows the upper thread to move up and down?
Take-up Lever – Part of the upper threading sequence, it helps control the flow of thread. It’s the part that goes “up and down” as you sew.
Do you start sewing with needle up or down?
The top thread is locked in with the bobbin thread to create the stitches. Before you start any new line of stitching, make sure the needle is in the UP, or the highest, position. This will ensure that the thread is not pulled out of the needle as you start sewing. If you forget and the thread pulls out – don’t stress.
Which way do you turn the wheel on a sewing machine?
Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing.
