I had this happen once and it was the needle shaft was slightly bent, (after loaning it to a relative) but yours may just be in need of oiling and working the needle shaft back and forth by hand. Another thing to try, take a hair dryer and heat all of the moving parts. Hopefully, this will work for you. Otherwise, it may be the timing, and you need a professional to look at it. Good luck, got my fingers crossed for you

Brother sewing machine model AS1430S not picking zig zag stich....on zig zag stich option it is only giving straight stich.....plz help


Try a brand new needle. If that doesn't work, then the machine may be slightly out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

When i use the zig zag stich, sometimes the stich falls and does not zig zag


try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed

could be a problem with the cam that does the zig zag, you might need to have the machine checked

if your sewing with light weight fabric also try using stablizer

Singer Sewmate, the zig zag stitch is perfect on the bottom of the fabric, but lopsided on the top, how do I fix this?


This could be a combination of two things, to much down pressure on the spring loaded foot on top or the fabric distorting it, the other is a top stich tension issue adjust tension in and out to see if this improves the stich.
good luck

Decvorative stitches do not work Zig zag

White sewing machine won't stop the zig zag stitch


my suggestion is take the machine in to a sewing machine shop
to be check to see if something inside is broken or come loose
knowing the machine is in good working order gives peace of mind
instead of wanting to through it out the window
and get a instruction manual
Go to the singer website for a free pdf manual
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w265) & click search

My machine stiches in zig-zag only. What did I do


Do you have a manual...if not White will email one to you at your request. Make sure the stitch width is slid or turned all the way over to as narrow as possible. Good luck.

Singer model 2638 will only straight stich all of a sudden


Try changing your needle. That is the most common cause for this. If you hit a pin or broke a needle, it could have been thrown out of time. Try changing the needle, that will in all likelihood correct the problem.
