Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Cant get it to zigzag or do any other stitches. Nothing happens when the numbered buttons are pressed. I just got it out of the shop and was told it worked greatl. This wasn't the reason I had it serviced. The stitches worked fine before.
I would call the repair shop and tell them what the machine is
doing and tell them the machine was making the stitches before
and now it's not, and ask them why is the machine messing up?
it's possible that the machine motherboard is going out or the panel
where the buttons are has gone out.

SOURCE: 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:
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.

Hi, open the top cover and if you watch what goes on inside from the top when you move the top change lever you will see part of it goes through a fork or U-shape part. This part is probably stuck and needs some oil. After oiling and working it back and forth a bunch eventually it will start snapping into the notches its supposed to. I beleive then you will have your zigzag back.
Either that or you have the stitch width set on zero.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I use surge controllers elsewhere but hadn't thought to add one to the sewing machine."
