Stitch option settings dial not responding

I have a Riccar 1570 sewing machine. The dial to select stitching type (A,B,C,D,E,F, G choices) is suddenly not responding when turned. I need to use C & G setting for a quilt with a deadline. Can you explain what I need to do to get it working again pronto? Thank you

An older mechanical machine? Possibly could use a good cleaning and oiling. Old oil may have solidified and preventing things from moving.


Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Riccar 777 sewing machine. I can’t get it to sew regular stitch. I have no book.


If it's an older mechanical machine, the stitch width selector or dial has most likely seized.

I have a model 2380 and I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO SET IT BACK TO A STRAIGHT STITCH. WHEN I SEYT THE DIAL TO "A" IT STAYS ON ZIGZAG. THE MANUAL DID NOT HELP


You need to select A but also set the Stitch Width dial to zero. The Stitch Width dial should be the one on top of the machine next to the handle.

My machine is doing a triple stitch and I don't know how to make it stop!


Best course would be to consult the owner's manual. It has most likely been inadvertently set to triple stitch--may even be a combination of stitch dials..

I have a riccar 2600 and I can't figure out witch knob makes it sew straight. Please help!!! Thanks, Heather


Perhaps the owner's manual will be helpful:

RICCAR 2600 Instruction Manual

FWIW, it appears that the round dial on the far right is the stitch length selector. The round dial at the top is the zig-zag stitch selector.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

the stitch length dial may need to be checked to see if it's worn or damaged or may need a adjustment.
