SOURCE: Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

Hey. It's full out possible that you have it on the right setting...but concider this - the switcher inside the sewing machine could be broken (ie. It's moving to different stitches - but not the one you have the outside set for)

It happened to me (pc o crap singer model)

SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

SOURCE: The Reverse stitch button

The feed mechanism needs to be oiled. Take off the bottom cover and look for any place where two parts move against each other. Some binds can be very difficult to remove. Try spraying everything with a light weight oil (I like Tri-Flow) and let them soak over night. Then manually try to move the feed dogs with your hand. Hopefully it will break loose.
Good luck!

50 year old elnas made stitches by cams. look to see if the machine has a cam in it. you can see this by opening lid on top of machine. cams are black with red or white showing the pattern of the cam. could also have broken cam stack gear. That would require technician with elna experience

My Janome JL250 is stuck in reverse


Probably the reverse mechanism has stuck. Only suggestion may be working the lever manually to see if it frees up. Other than that, it would need service or replacement.

My euro-pro 7130 seems to be stuck in reverse. I cannot make it sew forward


This can be caused by a few things. Check the stitch setting near zero can cause this. Next check to make sure it is on straight stitch. If that doesn't work the reverse mechanism may need oiled. If this is a computerized machine you may need a repair shop to do it. You do not want oil on the electronic boards.

Model 4423 singer stuck in reverse


Solution: Turn off machine. Turn stitch dial until you hear click on each stitch shown on dial. Set to straight stitch then and set stitch width to 6. try machine again being careful to put light force on the foot pedal so your not going full throttle. This is how I "de-confused" my Singer Heavy Duty 4423 when it got stuck on reverse. Hope this helps!

Viking 2000 6430? sewing machine, only sews in reverse.


Your stitch length dial is stuck. Your machine is in need of oil. If you open the back of your machine and see the bit that moves when you turn you stitch length dial. oil that bit and warm it with your hair dryer. It should become loose. It take a bit of warming and working the oil into the machine. You have to repeat this process a few times.

I do have the service manual at [email protected]

Reverse stitching on a singer 514, HELP!


In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

Why is my screen showing the 'bobbin threading' icon??


Perhaps the bobbin winding mechanism is stuck. Probably needs service.

Also, check the bobbin and bobbin case. Perhaps there is some thread stuck or it is not securely threaded through the tensioner.
