Have you loosened both screws before trying to move them? Usually both have to be loosened to make adjustments. Have you been able to move them in the past, or is this a new-to-you machine? If they just won't move, they may be rusted or bent. Good luck!

How do you know what pattern you select

It will be helpful to you to download the user's manual from the Singer site--it is a free download.

To answer your question--after looking at the manual--it appears that if you look at the pattern selector, it should indicate which pattern is selected.

I can't move the upper stitch pattern selctor to the K position.

The machine has a series of cams inside and a cam follower which slides up and down the cam stack. The problem most likely is the cam follower is not moving back far enough to allow the lever to move. This can be adjusted but it is difficult to do if you are not familiar with sewing machine mechanics. please follow my link. I may be able to guide you.

I have a singer 5040c and it won't do a zigzag stitch - it just goes in a straight line.

My wife just had this a similar problem with her Singer Omega 36 where she could sew straight and select patterns but could not zig zag. If you open the top of the machine you can see where a little lever connects to the white plastic pattern module that gets inserted in the top. The reason for the problem was that the lever was not touching the bottom of the module properly. The notches on the module cause the needle to move from side to side creating a zig zag. The module needs to be inserted correctly, by this I mean fully and the correct way around or it does not reach the lever when it is in the A position. At first inspection it looks the module could be inserted any way around but there is a thin and a fat clip. You need to try both ways to see which on sits lower in the machine. You may now need to adjust the tension on the machine as the lever will nowe move differently inside the machine. This fixed my wifes problem.

Inspiration 4205 stitch length won't change

Are you certain that the pattern selector is set for straight stitch and not buttonhole?

Turn the handwheel so that the needle is up and the take-up lever is in it's highest position. Then turn the pattern selector knob through all of the patterns back and forth a few times. Finally, select straight stitch and see if the length works. If not, need to take it to a repair person to determine the course of action.

Making a buttonhole on a Necchi 3204 sewing machine

Here's what the manual says:

Before sewing, fit the button-hold foot to the machine (long white plastic thing with red, ruler like markings).

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the left hand side. Set the dial to "1" position. Sew the left side and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "2" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the right hand side. Set the dial to "3" position. Sew the right side. Raise the needle.

Select the pattern selector dial that is solid green on the top and bottom. Set the dial to "4" position. Sew 5-6 stitches and raise the needle.

Hope that helps...
