I dont have the instruction manual and i cant figure out how to do a zig zag stitch? Help


You don't say the make and model of sewing machine. But generally zig zag is achieved by selecting the zig zig stitch on the stitch selector, then setting stitch length to 2 and stitch,width to between 3 and 4, depending on the fabric. If its a very light weight fabric 4 the thread will pull in and tunnel the fabric so turn down to narrow the width of the stitch.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

Why does the needle hit presser foot?


Did you change the stitch selection, or have it on a stitch that is too wide for the foot that is attached?

Stitch width knob


What's the model? Do you have the stitch selector set on straight stitch, or on a stitch with a width component, like a blind hem stitch?
Some machines consider straight stitch to be a zigzag stitch of width=0, while others have separate settings for a straight stitch and a zigzag (or other) stitch.

Width


it sounds like both of the machine need to be check to see what
is wrong with the zig zag stitch controls or if it's the cam inside the
machine. a sewing technican can tell for sure

My machine will not zigzag. Width setting on on1 length setting on widest


You need to take the width setting up to 4 and length down to 2 or less if you want a close zig zag. You may not want it that wide but usually 4 is the maximum width.

There is probably also a stitch selector if your machine has several stitch patterns it can do. I've looked at an image at http://www.stevekraftrepair.com/uploads/resized-P9200750.JPG and it looks to me like the left hand knob on the front of the machine is the stitch selector and is colour coded in with the images on the front panel. I just can't make out which number is the zig zag, it could be the red number 4??? So you would put this dial onto the zig zag, then turn the other dial up to a wider stitch width and I am guessing that the little blue box lower down the case has the reversing button and the stitch length setting.

Usually it pays to turn the width to zero BEFORE you make changes to the stitch selector, most machines seem to like being treated this way, ie engaging cams inside the works.

Also, it is always a good idea to check what foot you have on before you start sewing a swing needle stitch just to make sure that you don't hit the foot with the needle. Some feet are designed for straight stitch only and have a little hole but obviously this is not going to work for a zigzag stitch.

I hope this is of help and that I have understood your problem.

Do not know how to set the machine for simple straight stitch.


I don't know your model but most machines have 2 common setting devices, namely a stitch width dial (how wide the needle swings) and a stitch length dial, how far apart the stitches are. So a normal straight stitch is "width" set to zero and "length" set to 2.5. If the machine has several different stitches then there may be a "stitch selector" too where you can choose the stitch style, ie zig-zag, 3 step zigzag, blind hem stitch etc.

You could try to locate a manual or threading diagram at various websites or visit sewing.about.com which gives good general information on threading and use.

I'm looking at the Pattern Selector Dial. 2 different stitches are shown for each selection A - H. 1 shown in blue 1 shown in green. Does each pattern have 2 options?along the rt side of the machine also...


i have same machine, you know i found that to be odd too. heres what you do, click it to the letter you like the style, then start sewing on a swatch at the very shortest stitch. then start increasing the stitch width more and more, up to 4 and see how it difers. i think thats where you will see the difference. i haven't played too much with mine yet, but listening to you is encouraging me to play on a swatch with all the difffernt styles you can stitch.

What settings do I use for straight stitching on my machine


-Turn the stitch selection dial to the straight stitch (usually the first one, looks like this ----------------)

-Set the lenght dial to anywhere from about 1.5 to 3. The bigger the number, the longer the stitch

-Your width dial will also control where the needle sews (on the left side or the foot, right, center....)

Hope that helps,
Chris

PS,
Always thread the machine with the pressure foot up, or else you will get looping of thread on the bottom of the fabric..
