How to set the initial position of Servo to be 0 degree

Hi all,

I’m trying to 0 positing a servo but when I set the pos variable to be 0 and run the code, it doesn’t work. The value has to be more than 20 to make it rotate. Does anyone know how to do that?
Thank you!

Here is my code:

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
// twelve servo objects can be created on most boards

int pos = 0;    // variable to store the servo position

void setup() {
  myservo.write(pos); // put it before the attach() so it goes straight to that position

void loop() {


Many servos are not able to go all the way to 0 or 180 can yours go below 20? Try this test sketch to learn it’s limits:

 Try this test sketch with the Servo library to see how your
 servo responds to different settings, type a position
 (0 to 180) or if you type a number greater than 200 it will be
 interpreted as microseconds(544 to 2400), in the top of serial
 monitor and hit [ENTER], start at 90 (or 1472) and work your
 way toward zero (544) 5 degrees (or 50 micros) at a time, then
 toward 180 (2400). 
#include <Servo.h>
Servo servo;

void setup() {
  // initialize serial:
  Serial.begin(9600); //set serial monitor baud rate to match

void loop() {
  // if there's any serial available, read it:
  while (Serial.available() > 0) {

    // look for the next valid integer in the incoming serial stream:
    int pos = Serial.parseInt();
    pos = constrain(pos, 0, 2400);
void prntIt()
  Serial.print("  degrees = "); 
  Serial.print("microseconds =  ");
