Having problems with your Vacuums ?

How 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. My machine is a White model 1888 jean machine.


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 beginner sewer wouldn't be using. -------\015\012This should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a White Model 258SM sewing machine and when I have all the settings set for straight stitching, the needle bar still moves side to side. Is there something that I am doing wrong or is this normal and I just don't remember it happening before? Thank you for your assistance. If repair is needed, can you recommend someone in the Brainerd, MN area?

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

My Singer Sewing machine (model 6215) is now only sewing in reverse. After pressing the backstitch button, the button seemed to stick in the backstitch position. I was finally able to pull the button out but my machine continues to only stitch backwards. What do I do now?


It's stuck inside. Open it up so you can see inside the bottom, look for the feed dog mechanism and you'll find where length of step is varied, this is where the reversing takes place too. Tapping gently and oiling will free it up.lp ... Vacuums

I am sure that you realize that it has to be for a low shank machine and that you have to take off the presser foot and use the screw to clamp the walking foot on, and the fingers must be on the take up lever screw. Be sure to check the shank size. ... Vacuums
