Zig zag won't work

The zigzag on my Elna 3005 isn't working, is there a way I can fix it myself? The straight stitch works fine.

Make sure stitch width slider is not set to zero. If not then you either have a bind in the needle bar pivot or an electrical problem (bad stepper motor or bad circuit board).
I can't remember if this machine has a twin needle lock out, if so turn it off.
Good Luck!

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE STITCHING FROM STRAIGHT TO ZIGZAG


Check that your sewing machine is even capable of zig-zag. Some machines are straight-stitch only.

Consult your owner's manual.

If your machine can do zig-zag, somewhere there is a dial or setting called "stitch width" that will determine how wide the zig-zag will be.

Elna machine puckers silk on zig zag stitching, Elna 2007


Yes, because a zig zag stitch is creating a wide stitch and the tension on the thread is going to pull the fabric within the seam together, you can't seam thin fabric with a wide zig zag. It will "tunnel together". If you are using this stitch to neaten a raw edge, then try using the serpentine or three step zig zag where the needle pierces the fabric 3 times in each leg of the zig zag, this will give better results.

Elna 3210 raw-edge zig-zag stitch bunching


Zigzagging on the raw edge of a lightweight fabric will pull up, because the needle is swinging to the right side off the fabric, bet solution is to use the three step zigzag to overcast the raw edge, it looks like a zigzag mad of dots in the stitch icon. Dont know your model well, but its late model so should have this stitch.

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.

Have a Bernnina record 530. The zigzag will not work, just straight stitch on any width setting. all the other fancy stitches(1-12) work fine.


the cam or gear of the zig zag could be worn or damaged,, having the machine checked,, would tell you for sure what wrong with the zig zag..

is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?

Zig Zag wheel not working


Need to know what type of machine, but most likely the connecting arm for the zigzag width to the needlebar is gunked up somewhere. Clean the joints of it and oil liberally with lots of exersizing it.
