The following may be helpful:

Belvedere Adler 950 manual

If it is similar to your machine, looks like Dial A would be set on the zig-zag/straight stitch, Dials B would be set on zero, Dial C would be set around 2-3.

What do I set my machine for to make very close zig zag stitch. Husqvarna Viking platinum 755.


With most machines after you select the Zig Zag setting you then select the normal stitch knob that can be adjusted for long or short stitch lengths and that should also give you adjustment on your Zig Zag stitch length .

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.

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

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch


You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching 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.
