SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

This could be more than one issue, first I don't think you have the machine threaded correctly. Make sure when you thread that the thread is seated betweeen the tension disc on the top and also, make sure that you have properly but tin the bobin

How do I rebuild the upper tension mechanism for a singer sewing machine model 507?


It's far too complicated to explain on here. You need to get a service manual for your model, or find one with a similar dial. Make sure the manual covers tension dials. Getting the spring wound correctly can be a challenge. Have you checked to see the if the presser foot lever is pressing against the tension dial from the inside of the machine?

Upper tension assembly apart need to know how to reassemble


Assembly is easy, calibrating it... not so much.
Bring it to a service center.

I have used my machine for over five years, never had a problem until today, the arm wheel at the side is suddenly stiff to turn and its not sewing a zig zag I was doing.


Try unpluging it from the power. It may need to resent . Try a basic straght stitch and see what happens. Then go back to your Ziz zag stitch.

How do i fix sewing machine tension?


#1 rule in dis-assembly of anything is to lay out the parts in the order they came off. I do this with a piece of tape turned sticky side up on my table. (for future reference)

As for your machine.. since you did not provide a model number the best I can offer is this parts page which has some diagrams under each model. Please locate model from the several pages listed... and view the diagrams.
