    The fashion disc does not appear to be changing the stitch from a zig zag on my Fashion Mate 360, on any disc. Adjustments?

On a singer machine from the 70's, how do you change it from sewing zig zag to straight line?


Most likely you change the stitch-width selector to straight, otherwise it will stitch in varying degrees of zig-zag.

TRADITION 2250 SINGER SEWING MACHINE HOW TO ZIG ZAG


From the pattern selector (the bigger dial), select the zig-zag stitch. Then, using the stitch length dial (the smaller dial), adjust the stitch length. The closer your stitch length is to "0", the more dense will your zig-zag stitch be.

Someone gave me a singer 403. I put in the zig zag attchment but it still sews only straight. What am I not doing??


Of course, you have to push the zig zag adjusment lever from the 1 position to one of the zig zag positions, 2-5. Also, the zig zag disc must be inserted. Take of the top of the machine (two screws to loosen the attachment and lift off the top), and you can see a steel connecting piece called the pitman and it should move back and forth when zig zag is engaged. If it isn't, maybe something is gummed up as has been suggested.

I just bought a Singer Golden Touch & Sew at an estate sale. The straight stitch works great but it will not do a true zig-zag. It starts at wide width and the zig-zag narrows steadily for about one...


Go to www.singerco.com and under customer support, you can download a free copy of your manual. Save it to your computer, then enlarge the diagrams, it is so much easier to see the details. The machine is a little more complicated than we are used to. It will also teach you how to lubricate and clean this little beauty. Good luck, have fun. Happy New Year.

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.
