I have tunneling on fabric when i use the zigzag stitch.

Sometimes it is because the tension is too tight.

Also, if it is light-weight fabric, like chiffon or fine silk, the fabric does not have enough body to hold the stitching flat. You can add tissue paper to the fabric and stitch it into the seam. Once stitched, the tissue paper can easily be torn away. (If your machine has a blind hem presser foot--or what she refers to as an over edge foot below, it may be helpful. It is a presser foot that has a bar that separates the right and left side of the stitch and provides just enough leeway for the thread to lie flat.)

Why is my White 1866 dropping stitches not picking up the bobbin thread when I am doing zigzag stitches?

Be sure you are using a brand new needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric you are sewing. Otherwise, your machine is most likely a bit out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Singer sewing machine needle moving to the side after it's in the fabric for a zigzag stitch

If you can grab the hand wheel and move it right and left, then it probably needs a plastic collar that goes next to the left upper shaft bushing.
If not then the cam timing needs to be adjusted.

How can I make a buttonhole that's bigger than my buttonhole foot will allow

Measure the button, mark the size of hole you want with a pin at each end. sew 6 full width very close zigzag stitches at one end ending on left side , then sew down to the other end with needle in left position with #2 width stitches, at other end again sew 6 full width zigzag stitches finishing on right side, turn work right around and sew back to other end again with #2 width stitches.
you should now have a rectangle of very close stitches with a very narrow gap between them down the middle. carefully cut between the stitches and you have a button hole.

My sewing machine won't zig-zag stitch

There is usually one source for this problem, and it's easy to fix. Take the end cap of your machine as if you were changing a light bulb. Now you are off...When you switch from straightstich to zigzag, the levers operate across and inside the body so that the needle shaft, you watch it going up and down, can also move sidesways (but only a few mm's (about 3/16 inch)) The needle shaft should both go left and right, freely. It is hinged at the top but half way down ththe shaft it "floats" in a two sided guide. This sounds complicated but it truly is NOT. What happens to neglected machines is that "gunge" forms in the sliding parts and stop the left and right deflections. You my need to prise open the shaft from it's guide to start with (be gentle) but a few drops of oil normally soon allows the needle shaft to slide side to side.
When you can shake the needle shaft from side to side BY HAND (with the machine set in the zigzag mode) replace the end cap and start zigzaging.
And in future oil your flaming sewing machine.....

Zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side.

if the zigzag stitch only stitches on the left side it's very possible that the cam or gear inside that does the zigzag stitch is either worn out or broke or damaged in some way, only a repair shop service tech can tell

Machine will not zigzag

The guy is right, dust kills the moving parts. try oiling the shaft that holds the needle up about 1/2 way and then run on straight stitch with no thread to work in oil, do this several times till you feel that it runs smoothly and you have a little movement side to side as this is necessary for your zig-zag. if that does not work it may be a cam or belt in the top part that needs replacing and you will need the repair to tell you that. I asked them to give me a quote before any work was done so I knew what I was up against. I love my machine so it was worth the 200.00 to get the parts replaced. It will sew anything cause it is a older model with metal rather than plastic parts. hope this helps good luck
