SOURCE: singer sewing machine will not zig zag

Over time, and especially when not used, there is a likelihood of dust and old oil forming a sort of glue, or clag....

Remove the needle for safety, then, when you have the setting on Zig zag, gently push the needle arm to the opposite side of the zig stitch.......release the needle arm, and if it springs back quickly, it is fine, if it moves slowly, or almost not at all, then the clag needs removing with application of few drops of methylated spirit to start, at the sort of piston affair that shifts needle arm L & R .....move the needle arm back & forth until it frees up, a drop of oil to finish.........if almost seized, may require leaving overnight after using a penetrating lubricant if it is really resistant....I have had them on the bench for 3 days with manual manipulation a few times each day before they finally come good.

Denatured alcohol is fine, surgical spirit too, different countries have different names or products, essentially alcohol with few impurities that will evaporate quickly with little residue.

Hope this does work for you, tho' as I said, it may take a little time to penetrate depending on severity........the same applies to the reverse mechanism of many machines when they seize.
If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

SOURCE: Brother vx790, my stitches are reversed ( top is on botom & bottom is on top )

It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

How to Change the needle position in XL2600i brother sewing machine?


The manual should be helpful:

Brother XL 2600 Operation Manual


FWIW, not all machines have a needle "position" function even though they can make a zig-zag stitch. The home position is the center and the zig-zag selector just sets how wide the stitch will be.

Check the position of the Button Hole Stitch adjuster that is directly under the stitch length control. It looks like a flat head screw and should be straight up and down for normal sewing.

My machine sews straight when set to zig zag and skips stitches sometimes. It zig zags but only gets half the stitch.


If your using a stretch fabric, youll need to sew in a stiffner tape. if the fabric "flags" i.e moves up and down with the needle it spoils the loop needed to form a stitch. If your having problems with a stiffer fabric it could be just a bad or too thin a needle. Check threading, needle condition and setting.

I sewed small zig zag stitches with no poblem but when sewing a larger zig zag stitch, the machine is noisy, and 2 needles\r\nhave broken. whats wrong?


I would call Brother, at 1-877-276-8437 and find out what they think is the problem, and have them advise you where to take it. In the meantime, make sure nothing is up in the shaft where you needle goes in, try to clean it out. That is really a strange problem. Good luck.

My Brother LX 3125 does not sew zig zag stitches correctly. It zigzags about an inch then straight stitches an inch. I have changed the thread, needle, bobbin ?????


Mine did the same thing. The needle is probably to high. Do not insert the needle all the way to the top. Lower it a bit and it should zig zag!

Suddenly zig zag stitch not working?


Because it is almost a straight stitch but the needle continues to move in a zig zag fashion is reason to believe it is in a long stitch. By changing the number of stitches per inch there will be a very noticeable looking zig zag stitch.

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.
