My Bernina 830 sewing machine will not do a zigzag stich


We are assuming that the zigzag width dial is at the widest position but the needle will not move laterally for zigzag... The following logic should be applied for Bernina machines 530, 730, 830, 930 machines with a guided motion zigzag cam.
----------------------
1. The switching pawl (lever on the top cover that switches from zigzag to cam patterns) may be engaged in the cam or automatic pattern side. Check that first.
For zigzag application, the lever must be engaged in the zigzag side (lever pulled back toward the operator). The stitch width dial is then used to provide your choice of width.
----------------------
2. It is common, due to oil varnishes, that the switching pawl that is actuated by this lever is stuck between the zigzag and the automatic position, thus preventing the transmission of power to either the zigzag cam or the automatic pattern cams and to the needle.
The best way to detect this is to remove the top cover. You can then switch the lever back and forth to observe if the switching pawl engages firmly into either of the receiving forks. If the switching pawl is sticking, a few drops of certain solvents are applied by a technician on the switching pawl support. The switch lever can be rapidly switched back and forth until you see the switching pawl engage into the receiving forks and you hear a crisp clicking during each engagement. This repair can be permanent or it may create only a temporary fix due to the amount of oil varnishes on the parts.
If the machine is heavily varnished, it suggested that the parts be disassembled and cleaned for flawless performance. If the machine had been sprayed with WD-40, petroleum based solvents like mineral spirits will not break down these varnishes.
A caution regarding solvents...DO NOT USE (WD-40) as your solvent. WD-40 is a marvelous product for its intended application as a water displacement device. It is not to be used for lubricating a sewing machine. Note: "Bernina Technical Information bulletin #1" issued in 1982, forbade the use of such spray lubricants and solvents. SewTechnical Home

Singer Touch and Sew Model 648 will not zigzag


There is an arm in the head that does the zig zag movement and attaches to the needle bar with a pin. If that isn't connected zig zag won't work at all.

Zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side.


if the zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side it's very possible that the cam or gear inside that does the zigzag stitch is either worn out or broke or damaged in some way, only a repair shop service tech can tell
