Singer Machine Only Sewing Straight Stitch

I have a Singer model 2662. It's supposed to be able to stitch 38 different ways, but it only does a straight stitch. I'm just learning how to sew and bought it used, so I don't know how to maintain it. How often to clean it or oil it or anything else.

In addition to the manual, you can find tutorials on YouTube.

I would check the machine for any accumulation of lint or threads. Also, take off the covers and see if any parts are rubbing against each other. Make sure you oil the machine as well.

i think you should start with following the manual (reading/checking) and see if you have done exactly as indicated for selecting stitch pattern - see pages 20-28 and then make sure you have followed the instructions for oiling - page 45.

Here is one suggestion (from a Singer technician):
Take the bobbin winder case off and see if the worm gear that spins the stitch gearing has migrated to the right too far. If so, use a 2.5 mm allen wrench and loosened the 2 set screws from the worm gear and spun the gear back into place. Tightened the 2 set screws and see if that solves the problem.
If all this fails then you can request help from Singer; either by email, telephone or chat. I have found that Singer is very good about supporting their machines.

I have the same machine and have the same problem. I have taken the front off the machine it appears that despite the display showing the Stitch selector moving, the mechanism on the inside is not moving up and down.

There are many allen Mets and Phillip head screws and Springs. So if you are not mechanically inclined I would advise taking it to a professional. I am still working online trying to figure it out.
