Why is my Sewline 20 sewing without my foot on pedal?

I was zig zagging a patch on knee of trousers which was not easy because of confined area. Suddenly machine started stitching stitches on top of each other without my foot being on the pedal. I seem to recollect that this happened once before but the problem rectified itself on that occasion. Any clues? Thanks

SOURCE: Brother vx790, my stitches are reversed ( top is on botom & bottom is on top )

It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

SOURCE: Skipping stitches while zig-zagging

If you have put a new needle in then the chances are the machine has gone out of time, you can either take it in to the repair shop or you can contact me and I will attach timing instructions drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk

SOURCE: only does zig zag stitches, no straight stitches,

make sure the pattern selector is set for straight stitch first. If it is set correct then the machine may be "stuck" is zig zag mode. May need to be de greased and then re lubricated.

SOURCE: Whenever I zig zag my machine skips stitches.

Hello,
Try these solutions.

* Re-thread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).

* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.

*Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.

*Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).
And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.

* Change your thread
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for
both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.

* Adjust your thread tension
It may be too tight or too loose.

* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.

* Change your needle plate
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).

Important: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with
this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which
could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide
stitches.
I hope this helps you.

I have a Singer Confidence 7469Q Sewing Machine. It just stopped sewing, makes a beeping noise when i push foot pedal. Can you please help me? Thanks


Something is not in the correct position to sew...perhaps the presser foot is not down, the feed dogs, etc. Check to make sure you do not have a stitch (like zig=zag) selected that the presser foot or needle plate cannot accommodate.

The needle keeps breaking


Either you have the wrong foot installed or your stitch setting is incorrect. Dial in a narrower setting. You may have a zig-zag setting without the zig-zag foot attachment, or your "width" dial is too wide for the foot's hole. Slowing turn the wheel and watch where the needle penetrates the foot hole. A collision at that point will break your needle every time!

Zig-zag settings


you probably shouldn't be using a zig zag for that application. But the multi-stitch zig zag.

Please look at page 40 of your manual for information.

As for needle breaking check to make sure your need is the correct one for the thread and fabric. Also make sure your pressure foot is the one recommended for the stitch. Consider this... most thicker fabrics require a longer stitch.

I cannot get my tension adjusted correctly. I have lost my manual. Can you give me some help. Also, do I need a separate foot for the zig zag stitch.


usually a tension of 3 or 4 is good
only if the presser foot not is not made for zig zag--all the presser foot's that I've seen on new machines do straight stitch & zig zag,, if the opening in the foot is large then manually try a zig zag stitch to see

ZIG-ZAG NOT WORKING


Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.
