Older machines use a cam. You can take the top off and look at the arm as you move the needle arm back and forth manually. Sometimes the grease will get hard and wont allow the arm to go back and forth. You can clean out the old grease and replace it with new. Sometimes a hair dryer can help melt the old grease out of tight spots.

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 have a morse model 5300 that does not let me zigzag or does not sew a complete straight stitch, it has little bumps along the stitch


first try changing the needle and rethread the machine, if that doesn't help then having the machine checked would be a good idea, to see if a part is broken, or a timing problem.

Zigzag feature is not working


Remove thread from machine and open door to where you put cams in. Step on pedal and run at full speed. It the mechanism where the cams go spinning? It is likely that your elna graph gear is broke

Can this machine do zigzags?


The Sew Dlite 11401 shown on Amazon here, http://www.amazon.com/DLite-Supreme-Portable-Sewing-Machine/dp/B0006BDG8Q , does not do zigzags. It only does straight stitches. There are similar models that have a stitch width lever. Those do zigzag stitches and straight stitch when in the zero width mode.

I hope this helps.
