There is a Stitch Width dial that needs to be set on zero. Make sure that no decorative stitch designs are selected.

My sewing machine only sews zigzag stitches never a straight stitch. Why?


We need to know the make & model machine.

If it is an older mechanical Kenmore, more than likely it is seizing due to old oil turning to glue inside the machine. Unfortunately, these old machines were made too well as the manufacturers never anticipated the machines would be around for 50 years. However, as mechanical machines they do need regular cleaning and oiling with a good quality oil, ie liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube or "good quality" sewing machine oil.

Either the stitch width regulator is broken or stuck or the mechanism that drives the needle bar is stuck. With plenty of time, patience, elbow-grease & Tri-Flow, your sewing machine will probably be sewing like new.

I've used the following method to free up some great old mechanical machines and they operate like new again:

Also, be sure to change the needle frequently, ie every 8-16 hours of use. Most sewing issues can be resolved with a new needle.

Can a dressmaker sewing machine, ca. 1975, sew a consistent 1/4" seam? My new Viking Saphire and old Kenmore do an awful job so I'm trying to find a better machine for quilt making.


professional machines are only better at sewing thicker fabrics-faster theyowever have difficulties doing fine work (there not made for that) I like the old Viking machines , and you cant discount the old sears machines as well , in fact unless there is an obvious flaw with them (bent parts), I cant see why they cant sew straight stitches , try using one of those stick on reference line tapes to help the operator guide the fabric straighter into the machine

CAn a brother lock 9290 sewing machine do just a straight stitch?


YES. ALL SEWING MACHINES DO STRAIGHT STITCH. EVEN IF YOU WOULD SET THE STITCH SELECTOR TO A ZIGZAG YOU COULD STILL SEW STRAIGHT STITCH BY SETTING THE WIDTH TO ZERO. OTHERWISE YOU COULD JUST USE THE STRAIGHT STITCH CHOICE.

I'm trying to get my mother's Singer Touch & Sew Deluxe 645 to sew a straight stitch. I don't want to buy a manual since the machine rarely gets used and I have limited time to "fix"


Not much information to go on. What do you mean it won't sew a straight stitch. It just won't sew a straight line? It won't form a stitch? What?
