Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
If you have a manual and are doing the setting according to the manual, then your sewing machine may be defective, e.g. in a loose mechanical linkage, if it is not producing zig-zag stitch behavior. In which case, the sewing machine would probably need service-repairing at a local service center.

If you do not have a manual, then please tell me what maker name, and what model, your machine is. And in that case, I will offer a source for the manual, where you may try the appropriate procedure to set the machine correctly.
