Hello:

You don't say what model this sewing machine is, or how old. Some older machines had cams that created different stitches. (they sort of look like weird little cogs)

Did it sew ok before you clean/oiled it?

I have a Tacsew T20U73-1 straight stitch/ zig-zag machine and I am wondering how I go about making my machine go from zig-zag to straight stitch?


There has got to be a selector of some kind on the machine. Usually it will be marked with symbols indicating straight or zig-zag stitch. You may also try varying the width of the stitch. The wider the stitch, the more pronounced the zig-zag effect.

Kenmore 1400 Zig Zag Sew Machine. The power cord broke and when I opened the machine-end plug, the wires popped out before I could see where each wire (power and foot/knee control) went. Now I do not know...


First what colors are the wires? Usually the 3 positions should be earth, neutral and live. These 3 positions are supposed to be the main power supply into the unit. The 4th cable you are refering to what does it connect?
First thing i would like you to do is identify which of the cables represent the 3 positions as stated above. After that then we can try to determine what the last cable is meant to do. Let me know the color and sizes of the cables. Usually the sizes are written on the cable in mm.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

I have a Tacsew T11-115 and I do not have an instruction book. I need to see if I have it treaded correctly and how to adjust the bobbin tension. The top thread is laying on the fabric and the bobbin...


For all sewing machines, if the bobbin thread is showing on the top surface, then the top tension is probably too tight. Turn the tension indicator to the left by half a number to a lower value. (So that if 5 was lined up with the dot initially, then go to 4.5 lined up with the dot).

See this article for some clear pictures of thread tension adjustments: http://www.ca.uky.edu/HES/fcs/FACTSHTS/CT-MMB-213.pdf . If you can find it the Singer Sewing Book is a good reference http://www.amazon.com/Singer-Sewing-Book-Gladys-Cunningham/dp/0307098702 .

This site, http://www.allbrands.com/products/abc0762.html , may be able to find and send you a manual to the TacSew T11-115. They have the T11-155 for sale.

I hope this helps.

Setting of the stictches meaning how do i set it to normal straight stitch.


You do not indicate what machine it is. Look for a lever or knob that moves the needle from left to right. With this lever/knob, position the needle in the position where it no longer zig zags. There may be two adjustments, one selects the size of the zig zag and the other selects between straight and zig zag. Check you selection of the lever by turning the hand wheel until you have the setting you want.

Sewing machine problem. . . . . .Hello Rick, My machine is an old Bernina 830. The instructions in your blog make sense and should have fixed my problem, but didn't :-( Question: There are 2 pins that...


Yes, from the information I have on your machine the metal disk you refer to is basically a program disk. It operates like the old self playing pianos did with the holes. You stated that the model number is 830. Is that the model number that is written on the machine?
