Husqvarna 2000 sl no zig zag movement

Hi there

I have just taken my macine out after my son's girlfriend used it and the zig zag is somehow switched or turned off. None of the programs that simulate an overlock work when I set the colours to blue, blue blue for the A cog.

We are going away and this is the only time I have to fix the hems on the trousers.Please can anyone advise.

Re: Husqvarna 2000 sl no zig zag movement

You might try oiling where the needlebar slides side to side (and everywhere else). More than likely it needs to be freed up somewhere.  Also there is a small piece called the cam follower that can pop off. Look inside near the cams and the piece with a finger that follows the cams may need to be reattached. They do come loose sometimes. Good luck.

Loose underthread and no zig zag

Lower thread tension can be adjusted by tightening (clockwise) the small screw in the bobbin case. The specifications call for 12-20 g resistance when pulling the thread slowly. I suggest tightening in increments of 1/8 turn and trying the machine each time. Also, mark the position of the screw in its original position should you need to return to the original setting and start over (use a piece of tape and place a mark where the slot in the screw is). I don't understand what you're saying about the zig zag problem.

I need to adjust the needle so when I zig zag it will not hit the plastic. It works perfect on stright stitch.

You might have the zig zag set for z-z left or right-hand. Make sure you are choosing the zig zag centre stitch. Also check you are using the correct foot - it should be the A or B foot with the wide opening.

Singer Athena 2000 won't zig zag

Did you switch the metal plate to one of the ones that won't allow left/right movement by any chance?
If the wrong plate it in -The machine somehow figures out that the plate won't allow the needle to move in the left/right directions and only does a straight stitch or funky other stitches.

Zig Zag Stitch not working

THis problem occurred as I was sewing on Neoprene. I was using Gutterman all-purpose thread and a size 80 needle. Tried switching to a size 70, then to size 90. Still unable to zig zag. After inserting a test sample of cotton, the zig zag worked perfectly, so I knew it was not a mecahnical problem. I switched needles again. This time to size 90 for stretch fabric. Voila! Problem solved.
