Question about Necchi 3101 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Zigzag issues I have a Necchi 3101FA/3102FB (per manual) and I am trying to use my zigzag feature for the first time. It is not making a continual zigzag pattern. It will zig and then do stitches that look like long straight stitches. Then do a couple of zigs and then the straight stuff again. I have tried to adjust both the top and bottom tension without much luck. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Either you have the setting on a variation of ZZ which steps forward several stitches then one to the side (ZZ), so check that first.

If you are certain it is on the correct ZZ setting, and this is a recent purchase, phone the dealer tell them the issue and arrange to take it back for them to adjust, it is almost certainly ever so slightly out of timing.

My sewing machine won't zigzag. I have the settings as per my guide book, but it is just sewing a straight stitch. What do I need to do?


Do you have the width set properly? If you have the length and tension right, but the width is too narrow, it won't zigzag. Make sure you have the width set at 1.5 or longer in order to really see the zigzag stitch.

Lower numbers moves the fabric further for each time the needle penetrates the fabric. . If you raise the number you will get more stitches per inch which means your fabric is moving more slowly. Try moving the number to different locations for examples. If you are attempting to make something so it will stretch you are probably wanting to use a zigzag stitch. A wide zigzag stitch will allow a longer stretch than a less wide zigzag stitch.
