Sad to say without make and model we have a hard time finding what might be wrong and even a good photo of the front of the machine would help

SOURCE: My machine stiches in zig-zag only. What did I do

Do you have a manual...if not White will email one to you at your request. Make sure the stitch width is slid or turned all the way over to as narrow as possible. Good luck.

SOURCE: White sewing machine won't stop the zig zag stitch

my suggestion is take the machine in to a sewing machine shop
to be check to see if something inside is broken or come loose
knowing the machine is in good working order gives peace of mind
instead of wanting to through it out the window
and get a instruction manual
Go to the singer website for a free pdf manual
Go to the home page

In the box put the model number (example w265) & click search

Brother sewing machine model AS1430S not picking zig zag stich....on zig zag stich option it is only giving straight stich.....plz help


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, then the machine may be slightly out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

When i use the zig zag stich, sometimes the stich falls and does not zig zag


try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed

could be a problem with the cam that does the zig zag, you might need to have the machine checked

if your sewing with light weight fabric also try using stablizer

Singer Sewmate, the zig zag stitch is perfect on the bottom of the fabric, but lopsided on the top, how do I fix this?


This could be a combination of two things, to much down pressure on the spring loaded foot on top or the fabric distorting it, the other is a top stich tension issue adjust tension in and out to see if this improves the stich.
good luck

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.

I need to raise the teeth on a Bernina sewing machine and I can't remember how to do it. Any help?


On the front of your machine, is there a knob that you turn for zig-zag/straight stiching and the other way for darning? There will be an icon showing the stitches

The darning selection will lower the feed dogs.

Singer Athena 2000 won't zig zag


Did you switch the metal plate to one of the ones that won't allow left/right movement by any chance?
If the wrong plate it in -The machine somehow figures out that the plate won't allow the needle to move in the left/right directions and only does a straight stitch or funky other stitches.

Darning would normally be done with the triple stretch stich, the one that is a zig-zag broken up into three stitches right and then three stitches left. See-through Zig-Zag foot. Zig-Zag set at it's widest. Feed set to about 1/16-1/8 inch (1.5-3mm) and darn by sewing forward a bit, adjust fabric, and then backward by pressing and holding the reverse button. Continue back and forth until you've created a darned box. For extra strength, turn fabric 90 degrees and repeat over same area.
