Is the problem the fabric is not moving forward but staying in one spot? which would mean the feeddogs need to be checked to see what position there in --up for sewing---down for darning
or the thread is not feeding into the machine?

SOURCE: feed dogs on my machine wont rise above plate

Open the door infront of the hook race assembly/bobbin carrier and check to the right of that. There is a chrome lever which engages with slots in the plastic casing. The correct position for this is as far to the left as it will go. If it is to the right furthest extent it will disengage the feed dogs. It should disengage automatically but if has not, press the lever down and slide it to the left. Good luck

SOURCE: threading a sewing machine

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!

Remove the needleplate and clean out the lint from between the teeth of the feeddogs........it is the most likely reason, the lint holds the feeddogs below where they need to engage fabric.

Check your Presser foot tension is at 3 then do a test.

If this is not sufficient the method of adjusting feeddogs is possible at home, tho perhaps not for those lacking some confidence in mechanical adjustment.......so post back for detail if needed.

Big loops under the needle plate. The bobbin case is pulled towards the needle and lifted up in the front.


OK, Nylon thread and vinyl fabric are difficult. Try this:
1. Be sure your machine is *very* clean - no leftovers from previous projects.
2. Take the bobbin receiver out (need a screwdriver to hold the release), clean it and all around it and re-insert. When you re-insert in this machine, hold the release lever with the screwdriver, push the receiver away from you (under the feed dogs) then bring it back toward you so it catches before you release the catch.
3. Use a stitch length just a bit longer than you 'normally' would - 3+ for vinyl.
4. Wind your nylon thread onto a bobbin *very* carefully. It's easy to get it caught so that it won't feed evenly.
5. Be sure your upper thread is in properly, and that it doesn't catch on anything.
6. Adjust your upper tension tighter than 'normal' to accomodate the slippery thread your're using - do this a little at a time, it's easy to miss the 'sweet spot' if you adjust too much.
7. Be sure to bring up your bobbin thread and hold both threads as you start to sew - hold them for 3-4 stitches.
8. Sew slow - this machine can go *really* fast, but don't let it on this project. It will catch better if you take it slow and easy.

Hope all this helps. If not, you'd probably better take it in for service.

The machine won't stitch anything...


check the feed dogs in the needle plate area to see if there up,
if you can see them & touch them with your finger, I'm putting in a link
for a free manual, so you can see where the lever is to the feed dogs, just
incase they are not up. if they are up then they may need to be checked
to see why they aren't moving the fabric.

When sewing, the thread keeps pulling the fabric threads and the result looks messy. I've tried playing with the thread tension but it won't help.


have you tried using a new needle- if the needle is the slightest bet bent or or damaged it can cause problem with the fabric threads

if the needle is not the correct one for the fabric, it can move or damage the fabric threads

also clean under the needle plate for loose threads or lint also in the bobbin area

Needle won"t stay threaded


that use to happen to me on my sewing machines, I would rethread the machine to make sure the thread is not caught on anything like the thread spool, or around anyone of the thread guides

also for both top & bottom threads, I keep a thread tail of 3 to 6 inches & before I start sewing I pull the thread behind the needle to the back of the machine & the I put the fabric under the foot & start sewing & now I don't have that problem anymore

I've just bought a Pfaff 1471 and it has "locked-up"... the needle won't go up and down and the hand-wheel won't move. Help please! :)


Do you have a bunch of material and thread stuck in the feed dog? Sounds like. This will sometimes happen. I'm afraid the only thing you can do is carefully work with a seam ripper or small scissors to get it all out. Be careful working. You will damage this part of your fabric, but you can take the seam allowance in a small bit. You will probably have to remove fabric & thread from underneath, through the bobbin area, too.

Once you have all of this cleared, the needle and wheel will turn. I suggest you try and take the needle out of the shaft and try pulling it out of the fabric before you start your work, too. That way, you won't risk breaking it and have a piece fly off at you.

It's frustrating and will probably make you curse at the machine-it's happened to everyone who sews at one time or another, and will happen again, I'm afraid.

Have a janome master craft 3000, just bought it used yesterday. Was sewing fine then all of a sudden it would stop pushing the material through like the needle was dull or something. Now it's doing it...


First do a process of elemination. Unthread the machine, both top and bottom, take out the needle. Place a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure, and depress the foot control. Does the fabric feed? If it does, then put in a NEW needle, thread up the machine, and see what happens. A dull needle won't prevent the fabric from feeding. If the fabric does not feed with no thread, then you have a pressure foot pressure problem, or a feed dog height problem, or a feed step motor problem, or possibly a board problem. If it only has a problem when you thread it up, then maybe you have a burr on the needle plate and the thread is hanging up on it and preventing the fabric from feeding. Check for all of these and if you still need assistance respond back.
