Hello all!! I scored so big yesterday at a flea market picking up this 630 model touch n sew. I also got a touch tronic 2010. Without even realizing how in demand that one is!!! I wanted it for a back up. So i got super lucky there! Anyway the 630 sews a great straight stitch once i navigated the exhaustingly long manual trying to figure out how to even make a straight stitch!! But when i put a cam in and set it to special it doesnt sew the design on the cam. It gives a zig zag but it also isnt consistent. It will zig zag a bunch of stitches then straight stitch then zig zag and sometimes the machine will keep sewing for a few seconds after i release the foot pedal. The cam does turn while sewing so im sure its a matter of adjusting something. I am making sure the needle is up and button settings are all off when stitching and changing discs as well as making sure its not on special. any help is appreciated!!

What stitch are you trying to make? Try setting the straight stitch closer together.

If you take off the top cover, you'll see that there's a little gizmo that rides along the bumps on the cam. My hunch is that the linkage needs to be lubricated. If it doesn't move freely, you aren't going to get the pattern.
