Question about Sewing Machines
Hi hope you can help. My Wife has the Super Galaxie 2100 an old machine but a good one and it has developed a fault. When I switch the machine on both the pushing dogs and the needle head should initialise the dogs move but the head does not . When I touch the screen to change to other stitch patterns the needle head does not move.It should move to show the selection has been made. It used to move from side to side when selecting say a zigzag stitch. I have put on a new pulse motor thinking that was the problem but it still won't do other stitches only straight stitches .I have also checked the cable from the board to the motor and there are no breaks in the wires. Any help would be appreciated Thank you James
You need to open up the machine and place a few drops of oil around the zigzag mechanism. Afterwards, manually move the mechanism back and forth until it is loose. I would place a couple of drops of oil at each joint when you open up the machine. I would say both top and bottom of the machine to loosen every joint.

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.

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.
