Sewing Machine Not Stitching?

I have a Morse zig zag 4100 sewing machine. It has thread on the spool and the bobbin, but it doesn't make a stitch.

Do you have the user manual and have you tried all of the troubleshooting tips (usually listed at the back of the manual)?

If you don't have the manual, have a look at this freebie reprint of some very important pages from the manual-if you aren't threading, and inserting the bobbin case correctly, the machine won't sew:

That link also offers a purchase of the manual at a fairly reasonable price. It's always good to have that manual, it usually solves or prevents sewing machine problems.


If proper threading and bobbin insertion doesn't solve your problem, the next thing is to take the machine to a trustworthy repairman. Look for a sewing centre near you or online at your area community bulletin board for reviews and contact details of someone who can fix your machine.

The vintage machines are superbly built but sometimes a gear or belt breaks and you need a sewing machine repairman with the right parts to get your machine back to sewing.

Check to see if your needle is put in in the proper direction. That is a cause of most issues.
