SOURCE: Top thread keeps breaking during

This could be more than one issue, first I don't think you have the machine threaded correctly. Make sure when you thread that the thread is seated betweeen the tension disc on the top and also, make sure that you have properly but tin the bobin

SOURCE: my singer simple is missing stitches when ziz

I would try a metal bobbin, SA 156 or a Singer 15j. The SA 156 metal bobbins can be bought really cheap on ebay for $8.99 free shipping and there are 20 in the package. My 3116 sometimes will act up with the plastic bobbins and this cleared it up for me. Hope this helps you. You may be able to find the bobbins local because it is the same one they use in Brother machines but they will cost you more. Good luck

My new Singer 4411 will not do zig zag or other stitches, just plain sewing

When sewing ziz zag stitches the zig zag dial on your top right hand must be set any thing thing above 0. The setting is 0 to 6. Only on straight stitch this dial be set at zero.

The selector lever doesnt work on my bernina 1030 it will only sew straight and ziz zag stitch can it be fixed


Yes, most likely the mechanics are seized due to old oil that has dried. I have a 930 that I frequently clean & lube thoroughly to keep it running smoothly. The only thing is to stay away from the basting stitch mechanism (sorry, can't remember if your machine has it) located in the middle of the needlebar directly behind the take-up lever. Once you give your machine a good lube, you'll be amazed at how quietly and smoothly it runs.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Here's a Service Manual for your machine:

Only a caveat, but is generally recommended to NOT use compressed air to clean sewing machines. Frequently, it pushes the lint and dust further into the machine so a technician will have to clean it.

I have used my machine for over five years, never had a problem until today, the arm wheel at the side is suddenly stiff to turn and its not sewing a zig zag I was doing.


Try unpluging it from the power. It may need to resent . Try a basic straght stitch and see what happens. Then go back to your Ziz zag stitch.

Stitch width knob


What's the model? Do you have the stitch selector set on straight stitch, or on a stitch with a width component, like a blind hem stitch?
Some machines consider straight stitch to be a zigzag stitch of width=0, while others have separate settings for a straight stitch and a zigzag (or other) stitch.

Top thread keeps breaking during sewing. Tension adjustment does not solve the issue. Also, machine is skipping stiches and will not sew anything but a straight stitch: needle moves in the ziz=zag or...
