Sounds like the reverse mechanism has jammed...either with lint or lack of use and oil/lint has frozen the mechanism.
Unplug the machine and remove the base. Clean all the lint with small brush and vacuum.
Try the reverse lever to see where the connecting rods are and identify the collar around the bottom shaft....try to move manually, use a little lubricant where the collar moves on the shaft.
In extreme cases it may take several applications over several days to rectify this.

Please don't use all capitals when typing, it is the online version of shouting, and is difficult to read.

My Necchi model 931 is not doing any zig zag stitches nor decorative stitches only straight stitiches


A mechanical machine? How long since it's been thoroughly cleaned and oiled? Sounds like the machine is seizing due to old oil that has dried.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Where do you oil the Necchi Lydia mk2


as for a manual try these sites
sewingpartsonline.com
sew4less.com
sewusa.com
ebay
is the needle the correct one for the fabric, if your overalls are denim
the you need to use a denim needle, flat side goes to the back of the
machine.
as for a sewing machine shop, in your browser type in sewing machine
shop in NZ & see what comes up.

Singer 5525 model just roars


Unfortunately, you will have to call the shop and tell the them the problem is not fixed.

Ask if when you bring it in, can you do a show & tell with the tech and then give a demonstration.
