The stitch window shows the letter that corresponds with the stitch you want so if you turn the dial on the right side of the machine to E you get the stitch under the letter E, turn it to B and you get the B stitch. If you want something in the RED row below, just turn the knob on the top front on the machine to the RED MARK and then you'll get the stitches on the red row. I think the mark is on the stitch length knob on the right but I'm not sure since I don't have this machine but i have taught someone that has it. Just look for it on that know first. If you need to order a manual contact Ron at a1sewingmachine.com and ask him for one. Hope this helps.

Not stitch zigzag


Have you tried a needle change? It could be blunt or the wrong size. Have you cleaned under the needle plate as the ridges get full of lint there. A toothpick will clean them out.

Are you sure that you have an 1120 because I looked up your manual (it is free on www.singerco.com under the customer support tab) and it is not just a straight stitch machine. If, it is not an 1120 put your correct number in and read the manual. Look on the back of your machine for your model number.

I have a Singer model 1120. I recently ordered an overcast foot, which I have been unable to use because the needle breaks What are the machine settings when using the overcast foot on model 1120?


On page 22 of your manual tells you exactly how to do it. I don't know which model you have A, B, or C, so I am not sure what stitch adjustments you make. But, if you do not have a manual go to www.singerco.com and download your manual for free, then enlarge the diagram and you can see it very clearly. Good luck, and happy sewing.

The instruction book is fine, I am wondering what stitch length you have selected . I think, maybe you should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and talk to Customer service. I looked at your manual, and why would you have purchased a side cutter foot for this machine? Where did you buy it, have them teach you how it works. If you bought from a dealer, like Joann's fabric they give lessons for free on the machines that are purchased from them. And their prices are very competitive.

How do i adjust the bobbin thread tension?


Refer to page 15 of the manual - http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Before changing the tension settings, be sure to thead the machine with the presser foot up as this also has a tremendous effect on the tension and formation of the stitch.
