I am kind of confused as to why it will not zig zag, have you tried moving the needle shaft back and forth after oiling your machine? I was looking at your manual online at Singerco.com and it seems like a very nice machine. I also would try a tear away stabilizer, or good old fashioned gift tissure paper, to see if the feed dogs will get some traction. Other than that, I would call singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for some other solutions. I am hoping that it is a free fix.

Where can i get straight stich needle plate for singer 5430 or is there anything compatible?


You really do not need a straight stitch needle plate because you can sew straight or zigzag stitches with the plate that came with your machine. Biggest advantage is that you do not have to change the plate to sew. Many people forgot to change it and broke needles when sewing zigzag.

Our simple 3116 won't zigzag stitch,the needle is off to the right and will not do any other stitches. Help!!


It won't do straight stitch?
Take the needle out... see if it is moving the fabric when you press on the presser foot. If it is not, then you need to raise the feet (it's under the accessory box/table face. If it does move the fabric. Make sure your machine is set to Zig Zag. again without needle... sew. Does the needle bar move? change to straight stitch, does the needle bar move? If it does I think you have the wrong size needle. If it does not, I'm afraid your plastic machine has broken... take it in for repair.

Singer sewing machine needle moving to the side after it's in the fabric for a zigzag stitch


If you can grab the hand wheel and move it right and left, then it probably needs a plastic collar that goes next to the left upper shaft bushing.
If not then the cam timing needs to be adjusted.

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.

Singer 756 zigzag timing is off


The machine may be slightly out of time so it works in straight stitch but not zig-zag.

I have a Singer 367 and it will not do a zigzag stitch. The needle goes from side to side but I end up with 4/5 straight stitches and then 2 zigzags then back to 4/5 straight stitches. The tension and...


Either you have a blunt or bent needle or the needle is in the wrong way round or failing that you may need to retime the machine which is quite likely, if you email me I can attach instructions kendourof@yahoo.com
