It sounds like something has happened to the cam gears that
do the decorative stitches, which means the sewing machine needs
to be checked..
but before you have the machine checked,, make sure all the
dial that are used for decorative stitches are at the right setting
one missed setting can cause a lot of problems

SOURCE: Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)

It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

SOURCE: Husqvarna Prisma 980 decorative stitch cassettes don't work

Hi,
On that machine, the cassettes aren't actually computer chips. Each cassette has a little spot of white on a certain little area you must find (top right I'm pretty sure). Look in the machine at that point. There is a sensor that looks for that white spot, and as it identifies it, it changes stitches according to that cassette. Either the sensor is blocked, gone bad, or you can put a fresh coat of white paint on with white out. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Singer Touch Tronic 2001 Sewing Machine Stuck on Sewing Straight Stitch Only

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.

SOURCE: only does zig zag stitches, no straight stitches,

make sure the pattern selector is set for straight stitch first. If it is set correct then the machine may be "stuck" is zig zag mode. May need to be de greased and then re lubricated.

In order to run a straight stitch, what numbers will I need in the boxes? Thanks. Di


Stitch width needs to be set to zero and NO decorative stitches selected. Stitch length will simply control the space between one stitch to the next.

Difficult to diagnose. Try a brand new needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric.

If the machine is mechanical, it may need cleaning and oiling if the decorative stitch mechanism is sticking.

How to fix decorative stitches for sewing machine.


Make & Model??? Sounds like the stitch selector mechanism is stuck. If it's a mechanical machine, you can try oiling the mechanics of the stitch selector with Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil and then heat with hand-held hair dryer.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

I have a Janome Newhome 672. Cleaned and oiled it, works great. But, the decorative stitches will not form correctly. The reverse is not engaging. How can I fix this. Also, the button hole knob h


In most cases Laurie, with decorative stitches selected some machines can't sew in reverse. Your stitch length is too long or too short to make the decorative stitches sew correctly. So many things could be wrong. I'd need more info to get you going again.

Why won't it do decorative stitches?


Have you selected the proper stitch. Look at the decorative stitch line 1,2,3,or 4, then the number above the stitch. Your screen should say 1:24 for line one, stitch 24. Make sure you are using the recommended foot. Embroidery unit is disengaged. Then makes sure you have selected the proper weave or thickness of material button. If it still won't sew, try a different type of fabric button and try that. This will change the tension. The tension could be too tight or too loose for that stitch.

Hello. I hope u can help me. I cannot get my stitching tight? If I pull the thread it comes right out. Thanks Jodie


You need to backstitch over the beginning and end of your stitching, Jodie. When you start out, manually turn the wheel to put the needle into the fabric. Push the foot pedal to stitch forward a little. Now, reverse over those stitches to nearly where you started stitching. Use the foot pedal to go forward again, stitch to where you want to end. Reverse again, just a 1/4 inch or so. Then take the fabric out and cut your stitching.

This backstitching keeps your thread from pulling straight out. You should always use it with straight stitches and general zigzag stitches. Don't use it with decorative or embroidery stitches, though, as it mars the appearance of them. But if you're doing any type of topstitching that uses straight stitches, backstitch in the area that will be in the seam allowance, ever so slightly, or your top stitching will pull out, too.

Hope that helps!
