Make sure that your needle shaft is not stuck, move it back and forth, oil if necessary. I had it happen to me once, but mine was caused by a bent needle shaft after loaning it to someone, and I had to do this each time I wanted to zig zag stitch. .

Please how do I work a zig zag pattern on my manual operated singer sewing machine


Hello, Annelien -

Unless your manually operated sewing machine has switches to realign your sewing machine needle to make zig zag stitching, as is demonstrated in this YouTube video (starting at around 6:30 minutes in the video):
https://www.fearlessmakers.com/manual-sewing-machine-works/
you cannot. Note: The machine in the video is a Necchi brand sewing machine.

Without knowing the model number of your manually operated Singer sewing machine, I cannot try to find operating instructions for it to determine if your machine has zig zag stitching potential.

Best wishes.

White 1521 only zig zag even on straight setting had it cleaned but still only zig zag zig zag on all setting how or can it be fix?


I don't think it needs to be fixed. If you want to zigzag, there are two setting you need to do. One is the stitch length and the other is the stitch width. When you sew a straight stitch, the width is 0. If you want it to zigzag, make the width wider (usually 1, 2, 3, 4, or sometimes 5). I've looked at the manual for this machine and page 21 has some info. There's probably more if you read further. If you don't have a copy, go to singer.com. They have tons of manuals for many brand of machines. Click on the support button and go from there.

On a singer machine from the 70's, how do you change it from sewing zig zag to straight line?


Most likely you change the stitch-width selector to straight, otherwise it will stitch in varying degrees of zig-zag.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE STITCHING FROM STRAIGHT TO ZIGZAG


Check that your sewing machine is even capable of zig-zag. Some machines are straight-stitch only.

Consult your owner's manual.

If your machine can do zig-zag, somewhere there is a dial or setting called "stitch width" that will determine how wide the zig-zag will be.

I have a Singer Special Zig Zag Model 418. I can


More than likely you have a broken vertical shaft gear.

When you turn the handwheel you should see the sewing hook moving under the bobbin case.

If not, take it to a sewing repair person and it should cost somewhere around $100 to repair.
