Check for diagrams on the selector wheel and then adjust your stitch length. Do not set to tight as your thread will break

SOURCE: I'm trying to get my mother's Singer Touch & Sew Deluxe 645 to sew a straight stitch. I don't want to buy a manual since the machine rarely gets used and I have limited time to "fix"

Not much information to go on. What do you mean it won't sew a straight stitch. It just won't sew a straight line? It won't form a stitch? What?

My sewing machine only sews zigzag stitches never a straight stitch. Why?


We need to know the make & model machine.

If it is an older mechanical Kenmore, more than likely it is seizing due to old oil turning to glue inside the machine. Unfortunately, these old machines were made too well as the manufacturers never anticipated the machines would be around for 50 years. However, as mechanical machines they do need regular cleaning and oiling with a good quality oil, ie liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube or "good quality" sewing machine oil.

Either the stitch width regulator is broken or stuck or the mechanism that drives the needle bar is stuck. With plenty of time, patience, elbow-grease & Tri-Flow, your sewing machine will probably be sewing like new.

I've used the following method to free up some great old mechanical machines and they operate like new again:

Also, be sure to change the needle frequently, ie every 8-16 hours of use. Most sewing issues can be resolved with a new needle.

Singer Golden Touch & Sew Model 750 sewing machine. Machine won't straight stitch, won't pick up the bobbin thread.

Do not know how to set the machine for simple straight stitch.


I don't know your model but most machines have 2 common setting devices, namely a stitch width dial (how wide the needle swings) and a stitch length dial, how far apart the stitches are. So a normal straight stitch is "width" set to zero and "length" set to 2.5. If the machine has several different stitches then there may be a "stitch selector" too where you can choose the stitch style, ie zig-zag, 3 step zigzag, blind hem stitch etc.

You could try to locate a manual or threading diagram at various websites or visit sewing.about.com which gives good general information on threading and use.

I just bought a Singer Golden Touch & Sew at an estate sale. The straight stitch works great but it will not do a true zig-zag. It starts at wide width and the zig-zag narrows steadily for about one...


Go to www.singerco.com and under customer support, you can download a free copy of your manual. Save it to your computer, then enlarge the diagrams, it is so much easier to see the details. The machine is a little more complicated than we are used to. It will also teach you how to lubricate and clean this little beauty. Good luck, have fun. Happy New Year.

My Kenmore sewing machine model number is 17630, & when I try to set the stitch length from a Straight Stitch setting to a Straight STRETCH Stitch setting, there isn't any difference. I have the length...


Take a look at the stitch length dial. If you turn that dial counter clockwise (to about 7 o'clock), it will set to stretch stitch. Then all of the stretch stitch features will work. When you want to go back to straight stitching, just move that dial back to what ever stitch length you wish.

We have a Touch & Sew 640 that we ARE trying to get running, and we need a manual, and specifically how do w thread the bobbin.


To wind the bobbin, select straight stitch, thread the machine up as normal making sure the presser foot is up, open the slide plate, push the little button over to raise the winder, take the thread and wind it round the presser foot screw a few times, press on the foot control slowly and the bobbin will wind, when you have enough, stop, close the slide plate to drop the winder down, pull the threads to the back and start sewing. for manuals try www.tandtrepair.com
