Having problems with your Vacuums ?

[email protected] can I get my machine to do normal straight stitching? I know how to dial the zigzags, etc but I forgot how to "dial" straight stitching.


Answers :

You use the setting for the zig zag stitch, but set the stitch width to it's lowest setting for straight stitch.To do a basic straight stitch, you put the top dial on the black M and the bottom one on the 0. Stitch length is the dial to the right. To do zig zag you keep the dial on the M and put the bottom dial on 3, 4, or 5. One and two appear to be used when you use a twin needle - something a beginning sewer wouldn't be using. -------If you need to move needle to left side, set zig-zag width to control 5.Always make sure needle is in highest position when operating dials.The dial can be turned right or to left.Set dial at indicating point "a" according to stitch size required.For longer stitch turn to right, for shorter stitch turn dial to left.For normal sewing its between 2 and 3.---------\015\012This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a Kenmore 385.19110 model machine, and the straight and zig zag stitches work just fine, but when I follow the directions in the manual to do a satin stitch (which is use the lowest stitch length) it creates a line that isn't perfect, or uniform, and after an inch or two stops catching the bobbin underneath. Have already tried reinserting the bobbin, rethreading the machine, refilling the bobbin, changing the bobbin, cleaning the needle, changing the tension. Wondering if I just got a mac

No power. I was getting intermittent power with my miele s558 midsize canister, but it was predicated with me fiddling with the retractable cord to get it to come on and then not move the canister while I was vacuuming. Now I can get no power. I have taken it apart and can see no issues with connectors, cord, casings, etc. It all looks fine. It is about 5 years old and I have had no problems with it.

I bought this machine about 3 years ago but hadn't used it due to illness. Now when I tried to sew with the Tuff Sew ,the threads continually break. If I can make about a 3 inch line of staight stitches without the top thread breaking,I consider myself fortunate The direction in the manual are extremely poor.

Singer 327 lower bobbin thread is wild and loopy after I sew...top stitch fine. Just changed to a large thread spool with the heavy remote base and crook to carry thread to machine and wonder if this changed tension (set at 4 and correctly threaded)? It had been working fine in zigzag but I also went back to reg foot and set stitch width at 0, center needle set. Thanks for your input and help. Deanna
