Question about Brother CS-8072 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Needle position needle postion is off center(to the right)the feed dog can be seen on the right of the presser foot only and about 1/16" of it. In looking at the needle plate opening with the needle in position, it looks like it is on dead center. Seems like the presser foot shaft need to be moved to the right so that the needle will be in position with the presser foot center groove. How can this be resolved if at all possible? Thanks for you help. Irv

Perhaps the needle is not in straight or is bent.

Hi, My Elna 7000 doesn't easily feed medium or thin fabrics. Presser Foot tension lever is position 2 and the Feed Dog is rising normally. Any thoughts please? Does the F Dog wear out in any way?


Generally, the lighter the fabric weight, the heavier the presser foot pressure. Yes, feed dogs do wear with use. Do not run the machine without fabric between the presser foot and the feed dogs--the feed dogs constantly rubbing against the presser foot will quickly wear the feed dog points. Store the machine with the presser foot down with a pad between the presser foot and feed dogs (even a scrap piece of fabric will do). Also, be sure to clean the feed dogs of any gunky build-up. If the feed dog points are worn, it may be worthwhile to have them replaced.

How to bring sewing foot holder to embroidery position


Hi, I hope this helps. If it doesn't post again.
"Check:
Place the sewing foot under the sewing foot
holder so that the pins of the foot snap into
the sewing foot holder when the presser foot
lifter is lowered.
Please check that the sewing foot is properly
engaged by raising the presser foot lifter
."

Question: Are you using top feed? If so:
"For all sewing jobs with the top feed, only use sewing feet with Cutout at the back (OA, 1A, 3, 4)."

Embroidery foot Part No.: 98-694-840-00 will not work with top feed.

Also, except for eyelets, the darning foot can be used for embroidery.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do :) darn or embroider :); I'm not sure what mode you're working in either; embroidery mode?

Darning with straight stitch
Program 00
Fit darning foot No. 6.
Set the needle at its highest position by turning
the handwheel, and push the pin of the darning
foot fully into the hole of the sewing foot holder
slightly pressing the darning foot between thumb
and forefinger. When doing this, the guide fork
should place itself around the presser bar and the
wire must be behind the fixing screw.
Darning position:
Lower the presser foot lifter pressing it lightly to
the rear until it snaps into the darning position.
Important Only in this position you have the
optimum thread tension for darning.

• Place the darning work in the darning hoop.
• Lower the feed dog.
• Pull up the bobbin thread and hold the threads
when you start sewing.
• Now guide the fabric back and forth evenly;
the length of the darn will be set by the size of
the hole. As you are determining the stitch
length yourself while sewing with the feed dog
lowered, you should sew at an even speed.
When you have reached the width of the dam
aged area, darn over the damaged area again
from right to left.
This guarantees a durable darn.
TIP: The faster you sew, the easier and more even
the darning will be. It you are moving the workpiece
too slowly, small knots will appear on the
wrong side of the fabric."

Whether working with terry-cloth or woven fabric,
with the help of the darning foot and the pro
gram 02 you can embroider initials of your own
design

Drop the feed dog and insert the darning foot.
Put the machine into the darning position.

Spread the fabric in an embroidery hoop and
embroider in accordance with program 02.

Lower feed dog
If the feed dog is not lowered for embroidering, the
machine does not embroider when the foot pedal
is pressed and the message appea rs:
Lower feed dog

ok?
The feed dog must be lowered in embroidery
mode.

My feed dogs will not pull my material through.


Check to be sure you have not inadvertently dropped the feed dogs on your machine. Dropped feed dogs are used for 'darning' or 'free motion quilting.' Below is info from Troubleshooting Manual:

Fabric does not feed through the machine
The feed dogs are lowered. Use the feed dog position switch to raise the feed dogs. 81
The stitches are too close together. Lengthen the stitch length. 42
The wrong presser foot was used. Attach the correct presser foot. 179
The needle is bent or blunt. Replace the needle with a new one. 34
The thread is tangled. Use scissors, etc., to cut the tangled thread and remove it from the race, etc.

Thread jam bent needle feeddogs went to down postion and i can't get them to come up


Ok, your going to need to get a new needle. If you can, snip the thread jam to get it out. If the needle is stuck, trying loosening the screw(or whatever) holding it in. This is typically a tension problem I find, but as for feed dogs, did you forget to put the presser foot down? Also check the settings on your machine, mine has a switch to not use feed dogs.

Check the feed dogs are in the right spot, when they move they should be just above the needle plate. If they aren't then your feed dogs are disengaged and you need to push the button or leaver that re-engages them. If the feed dogs are in the right place then you may have the wrong presser foot on the machine and will need to change the presser foot to one with a slightly longer shank.

Material won't feed through on kenmore 17600 sewing machine


Take out the material, take off the foot and needle. Stick your finger on the feed dogs and hand turn the hand wheel like sewing. Does the feed dog come slightly above the surface of the needle plate? If it does.... tighten the presser foot tension.

If it doesn't locate the switch that drops the feed dog. Make sure it's in up position.

If neither of those solutions work. Remove the needle plate and see if the feed dog or mechanism that runs it is broken

Good luck

Feed Dogs


when the feed dogs are in the up position the sewing machine
will sew
but when the feed dogs are down postion it will darn
try the feed dog lever again if you can move the feed dog lever and
the feed dogs respond going up and down then you know that
the feed dogs are working and are not broke
but if they do not respond then they need to be checked to see what's
wrong with them

I own a Necchi model 535f......I have had it cleaned and oiled in the last 4 years....I can't get my fabric to feed through my machine


The feed dog & the presser foot have to work together to feed the fabric thru the machine
The feed dog should be seen when you look at the needle plate, if not the feed dog setting should be checked--the feed dog lever may be to the right of the bobbin area
Open the light bulb door also called the Lamp Cover door or Face Plate,, there should be a knob at the top round or star shaped,, that adjusts the needle bar that puts pressure on the presser foot,, it may have numbers or letters, mine is a star shape & has numbers on it & is set between the 2-3
Adjust it a little at a time & then sew to see which setting is best for your machine

What instructions are there for a brother nx400 even-feed foot


Remove the screw holding the regular presser foot and the presser foot holder and set aside.

Place the take-up lever in the highest position.

Hold the even feed foot with your right hand with your thumb holding the lever of the foot in its highest position. Place the even feed foot on the presser bar and make sure that the lever of the foot rests upon the needle bar thumbscrew. While holding it in place, fasten the foot to the presser bar with the screw.

As the needle bar goes up and down, the lever on the even feed foot should rest on the needle bar needle serew and go up and down as well.
