Be sure TOP control shows zig-zag. Flip top right bar from red to black or black to red on side of machine facing you. You can then change the widths by changing the numbers on that same circle control.

SOURCE: how to oil my sewing machine
Kenmore machines may have parts and manuals available on searspartsdirect.com -- have the correct model number usually a 3 digit a dot and the rest of the numbers (i.e., 158.xxxx or 385.xxxx1). You will see a list, and if you click on parts or attachments list and scroll down into the parts list, there should be a manual listed as either available or not.
As to the new machines, Euro-Pro or any other, if really cheap, then my personal feeling is that they are planned to not last for a long time -- which may account for the lack of oiling instructions in their manuals. The other possible reason 'may' be that like some Viking Husqvarna machines, the metal parts could be infused with oil and the heat from running them produces the oil needed as it runs. Somehow I doubt that could be the answer in an inexpensive machine. If a lot of the parts inside are plastic, then no oil is needed, and they will run until the plastic breaks, necessitating a trip to the repair shop.
Only use sewing machine oil which can be bought at any JoAnn's, Walmart, sew and vac, or sewing machine dealer. Never use household oil or the yellow/blue can of spray that is a water displacement solution which ultimately will gum up the works. You could use Tri-Flow Superior Lubricant.
Basic oiling procedure is to oil wherever metal parts meet (possible friction points) or slide past each other -- a drop or two usually. No grease needed on plastic gears. If you have an old machine with metal gears, then use sewing machine lube (grease) or Tri-Flow lube (can get it at a bicycle shop if no where else).

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Looking for an Owners Manual
I have an owner's manual for the machine you have. You can use a double needle, but only if you straight stitch, in this machine. I will be happy to copy and send the manual to you. Or, you can buy it online. Just enter SWA-2000 in the search box and it will lead you to a manual. One place is only $10. You can also find parts and attachments by doing the same search.
