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.

How it is necessary to thread the thread???

Posted on Jul 30, 2008


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.

Can't get the Husqvarna Viking Platinum 775 to do a zig zag

it's very possible that a cam or gear has worn down or broken
inside the machine and also if the sewing machine is computerized
then there could be a problem there, having the machine checked
would tell you for sure.

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch

You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching zig zag stitch.

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.
