SOURCE: stiching

It's very possible the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is coming out of the lower tension. Pull on the thread and the bobbin should turn counter clockwise if it is correct . If it turns clockwise, flip the bobbin over , put the thread through the lower tension and try it again. The topside stitch is loose either because the lower tension is loose(or non-existent) or the top thread is too tight.

SOURCE: Changing stitches

You probably have not adjusted you stitch width and length.
Also a manual for this machine is currently being sold on Ebay for $4+. Probably would be a good investment for you.

SOURCE: Zigzag won't enlarge

See if there is a twin needle lock out setting, if it is on it will cause this symptom. Otherwise there may be a bind in the needle pivot or linkage system to the needle bar from the cam or stepper motor (I don't know if this is a mechanical or electronic machine).
Good luck!

Where can i get straight stich needle plate for singer 5430 or is there anything compatible?


You really do not need a straight stitch needle plate because you can sew straight or zigzag stitches with the plate that came with your machine. Biggest advantage is that you do not have to change the plate to sew. Many people forgot to change it and broke needles when sewing zigzag.

Can I go from straight stitches to zigzag stiches and back in the same seam?


Hi Susie,

I can't tell whether you mean straight stitching and then turning your work 180 degrees to stitch atop the straight stitches in zig-zag, or continuing around the corner of your straight stitched side using zig-zag. But you can do either. You can mix up straight and zig-zag stitching at will.

Just ease up to a stop, ensuring the needle is positioned down inside the work when you stop.
Lift the foot.
Adjust to your desired stitch setting.
Lower the foot.
Turn the wheel toward you manually to ensure the stitches will be placed where you want them, and
Slowly engage the power again (via foot or thigh lever).

Hope this helps.

When buying a sewing machine that has blind hemming feature .what does this mean./


it means there is a foot included that will straight-stitch a certain number of stitches then do a zigzag stitch to the left that will catch the fold of the fabric at intervals. The fold is made at the width of the hem you want. When you finish and straighten the hem out, the hem stitches will barely be visible on the top side unlike straight-stitching across the top of the fabric. There will be a "hem stitch" option on the machine and the foot will possibly have a movable guide that runs along the fold of the fabric to where your zigzag "catching the folded fabric" stitch is consistent.

Setting Machine on Different Stich Patterns


Turn the dial for stitch length so that the black line that separates the stitch length numbers from the buttonhole functions is in the 12 o'clock position. This engages the gears that operate your red stitches.

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
