Does my kenmore sewing machine Model number 5151 do zig zag stitch?


I was able to find this photo on the internet. If your machine looks something like this

then it most likely has zig-zag. There are a lot of dials and levers on this machine. Most straight stitch machines have only one or two. One dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be the stitch length. The other dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be stitch width, which would make a zig-zag stitch.

Straight stitch settings for VX890


If you do not have an owner's manual, this one may be helpful. Although not exactly your model, it may be similar enough to assist you in learning how to use your machine:

Brother VX 810 User Manual

If you go to pg 8 of the document and look at the instructions for stitch length and stitch width dials, that is where you set a straight or zig-zag stitch.

Setting stitch length


Get some scrap fabric. One dial is for the width of the zig zag stitch, the other dial is for the length of any stitch. First set both to ZERO. It won't move then set one to half way. This will show you which dial is which. If it is the width dial. You'll get a bar tack. If it is the length dial you'll get straight stitches.

I bought a R-2000 never used Necchi at an estate sale. Did not thoroughly read the manual before beginning to sew. Now it will only sew a zig-zag--think I did not use the release knob before changi


since you bought the machine at a state sale it would probably be a good idea to have the machine serviced.
you should be able to go from straight stitch to zig zag with out any problems.
if you move the dials or knob & the machine will not do a straight stitch then it needs to be checked

Singer 4622 zig zag


try changing the needle first
make sure the dials are set correctly
if your using light weight fabric make sure there's some type of washable stabilizer or interfacing
it also possible that their is a gear or cam that's damaged or worn, that's why the machine may not be doing the zig zag stitch

What are the settings for regular sewing, I do not have a manual. It has 3 knobs on the front and 1 on top? This might have something to do with my problems.


The three front dials are as follows....left to right-Stitch width, type of stitch, and stitch length. The dial on the top adjust the top tension.

For straight stitch you want 0 stitch width, straight stitch, 3 for stitch length.

For zig zag you want turn your stitch width to how wide you want the zig zag, choose zig zag stitch, and choose how close you want the stitches to be on the stitch length dial. Practice on a piece of fabric. Usually for zig zag you will want to loosen your top tension a little bit.
