Stitch length dial

Depending on the selected stitch, you may need to
adjust the stitch length for best results.
The numbers marked on the stitch length dial represent
the stitch length in millimeters (mm) (1/25 inch).
THE HIGHER THE NUMBER, THE LONGER THE
STITCH. With the "0" setting, material is not fed. This is
used when sewing a button.
The "F"-"1" range is for making a satin stitch (closed
zigzag stitch), which is used for making buttonholes
and decorative stitches. The position needed for making
the satin stitch varies according to the material and
thread being used. To determine the exact dial position,
first test the stitch and length settings on a scrap piece of
fabric to observe the feeding of the material.

CAUTION
If the stitches are bunched together,
lengthen the stitch length and continue
sewing. Do not continue sewing without
lengthening the stitch length, otherwise
the needle may break and cause injury.

Reverse sewing lever

You can use reverse sewing for back tacking and
reinforcing seams.
To sew in reverse, push the reverse sewing lever in as
far as possible and hold it in that position while you
lightly push the foot controller. To sew forward, release
the reverse sewing lever. The machine will then sew
forward.
