Question about Sewing Machines

My1866 is set for straight stitch but I am getting the wrong stitches, How do I reset so it is corrected to straight stitch? Ran fine before.

Seems to go to blind hem stitch or uneven straight stitch, then quits stitching. Manual doesn't identify the problem or resolution. Help? Please??

I put the stitch in center of dial but it still does straight.what is wrong


If you want a zig-zag stitch, you need to set the stitch WIDTH selector to a higher number. Sounds like you may be changing the stitch Length selector which simply makes a longer straight stitch.

My thread keeps bird nesting on the bottom of my fabric what am I doing wrong? What are the correct settings for a straight stitch?


Is your bobbin threaded correctly? You should be able to pull out the thread slowly while feeling it very slightly holding back. It should not pull out easily or quickly.
Could be something wrong with your tensions, try adjusting the upper tension first by starting at the middle setting and working gradually higher and then lower till you get a neat even stitch.

How do I stop my Juki DDL-8700 machine from skipping stitches?


set up on quilting table? wheres the oil pan?? if your machine sews fine straight and skips on curves i think you are lifting the presser ft as you make the turn. theres nothing wrong with the machine. you could always change the needle which is always the first thing when you encounter a sewing problem.

Singer Model 6212c only sews in reverse... Just brought this machine home today. Ha Ha, it only sews in reverse mode.


there's probably nothing wrong with your machine.

check and see if your stitch length setting is set to Stretch instead of somewhere between 2 and 3.

If it's in the stretch zone (below 0), it can sometimes sew backwards unexpectedly depending on what stitch you have selected.

make sure you have selected a straight stitch, and then select the highest stitch width and a stitch length of somewhere between 2 and 3.

it will most likely work fine.

You have 3 knobs/dials on the machine, the top left dials the stitch, the top right sets the length and the bottom right set your width. set it 0 for straight.

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.
