What do you have your width set for? How wide do you want to go? Read your manual and you will see the problem. If, by chance, it still does not work, call Singer at 1-800-4singer

    Hey Tks for your reply. I've tried every setting you can imagine, exactly as described in the manual and different width too. Yesterday I've tried again and none of them work, just straight stitches. Is very sad since I've used this machine so little, and now that I start sewing a little more this is happen. In another web site they said Singer knows about this problem so, I wrote them, let's see what their answer is going to be.I'll keep you posted

    I think that you should call them because that is not right to have to put up with that problem. If, that is a defect they should stand behind it and give you a credit to buy a different machine or fix this problem, once and for all for you and for free. Don't wait for the mail reply. Bombard them email, phone and your letter by post office.

My Kenmore sewing machine model number is 17630, & when I try to set the stitch length from a Straight Stitch setting to a Straight STRETCH Stitch setting, there isn't any difference. I have the length...

Take a look at the stitch length dial. If you turn that dial counter clockwise (to about 7 o'clock), it will set to stretch stitch. Then all of the stretch stitch features will work. When you want to go back to straight stitching, just move that dial back to what ever stitch length you wish.

Machine will not stitch

It is either a top or bottom tension problem. Top tension speaks for itself. Most folks do not know that there is the facility on the bobbin case to alter the bottom tension. Your user manual will tell you how to do this. It is very difficult to describe how to do it you need diagrams or to be shown

Skipping stiches

1) It’s possible the machine is threaded incorrectly. Remove the thread completely and rethread the machine. Be sure to use good quality thread--don't buy the cheapest you can find. A good thread will help your machine perform better and your projects last longer.

2) Poor stitch quality can be caused by the needle. Make sure you're using a new needle that's right for the job. Many times machines are taken in for repairs and all they need is a new needle. If you can't remember the last time you changed the needle--it's past time. Needles should be changed at least every eight hours of sewing.

3) When inserting a new needle, make sure the flat side of the needle faces away from the bobbin area. For example, if your machine has a frontloading bobbin, the flat side of the needle faces the back of the machine. If your machine has a side-loading bobbin, the flat side faces the right side of the machine. Some older sergers require special needles that don't have a flat side. Refer to your owner's manual to properly install a serger needle.

4) Thread that shreds or breaks can be blamed on the needle. Use a good thread and make sure the needle eye is large enough for the thread type. Also use the right type of needle for the fabric;
5) The machine tension adjustments put stress on the thread so it doesn't simply flow through the machine. When the upper and lower tensions are balanced, the stitch forms correctly. Tension is easy to adjust--stitch on fabric samples with a different thread colour for the upper and lower threads. Observe the stitch, adjusting the tension until the stitch is formed correctly. As a general rule, adjust the upper tension first. If the stitch still isn't right, adjust the bobbin tension.

Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight

It sounds like it is making a blind stitch, does it look something like this? -----v-----v-----v-----v-----v If so it might be on the blind stitch setting instead of the straight stitch! ;-)

A horrible tangle

This is a bit late, could the bobbin case not be seated properly? You need to put it into place and then turn it clockwise until it seats soundly in the opening. Also, check for burrs...the needle may have left a rough mark on the plastic or metal in the bobbin area. A piece of batting, or even an old knee hi should snag on any rough areas.

Skipped stitches, but only certain spots

Maybe wrong kind of needle; universal usually works for all, but not always, ball point for knits and sharp for woven.
