Will not zigzag or decorative stitches. New to these newer plastic style machines Always used older steel machines. This was given to me my by my sister who used it very little. Could cam be broken?


Hmm, I'm wondering if it has been cleaned and oiled recently. Older mechanicals require frequent TLC. Consult your owner's manual for cleaning and maintenance instructions:

Is your sewing machine mechanical (ie, not computerized)??? CAUTION--if your machine is computerized, do NOT proceed with the following suggestions.

If it is mechanical, have you cleaned and oiled your machine recently? Most mechanical sewing machine failures are because they have not been adequately and routinely oiled, the old oil has solidified and frozen the mechanics. I recommend Bernina oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (or similar good quality sewing machine oil) for mechanical machines--do NOT use 3-in-1, cooking oil, WD-40, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket. (I am not associated with any Bernina dealer.)

If it is in fact frozen, pick up a bottle of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store. Oil one or two drops in every oil hole (see your manual) and also every place where metal rubs on metal. But DO NOT oil any plastic gears, rubber, or belts. If it is still stiff or frozen, direct a hot handheld hair dryer into the top and bottom mechanism of your machine. See if that loosens it up. You may have to repeat.

Once your machine is working again, place a drop or two of good sewing machine oil as directed above. Be sure to use a small brush to clean the lint and dirt out of your machine, especially around the feed dogs and bobbin area. (Caution: Compressed air will sometimes force the dirt and lint into areas that cannot be cleaned.) And continue to use good quality sewing machine oil to keep it running. Recommendation: every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of sewing, or every six months if it is not in regular use.

I cannot get tight tension on zigzag underneath stitch on my singer 3221


There are a couple of things to check. First, did you thread with the presser foot UP, so that proper tension is applied to the upper thread? Is your bobbin correctly inserted, and is your bobbin case inserted evenly and correctly? Review your user's manual--if you don't have it, you can download it free at the Singer website.

If you have done these things, you may need to adjust your bobbin tension. First, run a line of straight and then zigzag stitches on a scrap of fabric and take a look. It helps to have two different colors of thread, with the fabric a third color. If one side of the zigzag looks fine and the other side looks like "chicken tracks," the chicken tracks side is too tight. In other words, you need to determine whether your bobbin tension needs to be tighter or looser.

You'll need a very tiny straight-slot screwdriver. Remove the needle plate--there are two screws in it--and remove the bobbin and then the bobbin case. On the side, there are two tiny screws. One is a Phillips--leave that one alone. The other is a straight-screw, and that one regulates the bobbin tension. The rule is "righty-tighty, lefty-loosey." Only turn it 1/4 turn, then reinsert and test. If you're on the right track, you should see at least a LITTLE improvement. DON'T do any more than that--if you don't do this carefully and systematically, you'll make things worse instead of better!

Singer sewing machine needle moving to the side after it's in the fabric for a zigzag stitch


If you can grab the hand wheel and move it right and left, then it probably needs a plastic collar that goes next to the left upper shaft bushing.
If not then the cam timing needs to be adjusted.

Singer machine needle won't do width in zigzag


It sounds like it needs lubrication on the needle bar frame and linkage.
