Not sure which model you have but you should have a stitch length control and a stitch width control. locate the stitch width control and set it to zero.

if you have done this and the machine continues to zig zag the zig zag mechanism inside the machine is most likely seized up. try lubricating all linkages inside and move the control lever a few times to see if it will free up.

if not you may need a tech to service the machine.

Keep breaking needles when i put down presser foot to sew iwant to sew straight stich to hem a curtain


If the needle is hitting something, make sure you have the machine set for straight stitch and the needle is in the center position. If it is still hitting and breaking, then the machine is out of adjustment and needs to be repaired.
