Check that the stitch length is set to make ~10 stitches per inch. This stitch is long enough to actually move the fabric. If the stitch length is set too short, the fabric will stay barely move and the needle will stitch almost in place.
Check that the feed dogs have not been dropped for darning or free motion quilting. In this position, they do not rise and are, therefore, unable to contact the fabric to pull it through the machine.
With the presser foot raised and using no fabric, hand rotate the handwheel and watch if the feed dogs actually drop down below the needle plate, move toward the front of the machine, then rise above the needle plate, and move toward the back of the machine. If the feed dogs are moving in this manner, then they are functioning properly.
Is there lint or gunk stuck in the feed dogs? This will restrict the ability of the feed dogs to grip the fabric.
Are the feed dogs worn? Are the little teeth worn so there are no sharp points?
What type fabric are you using? If it is very light-weight or slick fabric, the feed dogs will have a difficult time gripping the fabric. Most machines have a presser foot pressure adjustment so that more pressure is applied between the presser foot and the feed dogs. Consult your Owner's Manual. The adjustment is usually a dial either on the left side of the machine, on the front of the machine located above the needle bar, or on vintage machines it is usually a skrew located under the top lid above the needle bar.
Be sure to RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine so the tension disks are open to accept the thread. It also helps to grasp the thread between the thread tree and the tension disk and with the other hand grasp the thread below the tension disk and give the thread a little tug to make sure it is seated all the way in the tension disk.
Of course, make sure that the machine is threaded in the proper sequence--check the owner's manual (usually the upper looper is threaded first, then the lower looper and the lower looper thread tail is draped Over the upper looper in the last step before being pulled under the presser foot).
If the thread breaks or comes unthreaded, Best Course of Action is to remove all the threads and rethread from the beginning. Nine times out of ten, trying to rethread one thread will not work!
Also, when removing thread, it is not a good idea to clip the threads between the thread tree, raising the presser foot, and then grabbing the thread tails at the presser foot and pulling all the thread ends down. Threads should not be pulled UP through the tension disks.
check where the direction button/lever is
it controls the feed mechanism and if it is in the middle the teeth will just go up and down
set it one way and it moves forward and set the other way will go in reverse
it is graduated to provide a stitch length ( number of stitches per 1")
What Viking is it ? Have you cleaned between the feeders? If all is clean, try this test. Remove needle. Turn hand wheel so that feeders are up. Put fabric in machine. Lower presser foot. Make sure presser foot pressure is set at normal. Try pulling the fabric towards the front of the machine. It should be hard to pull. If it is easy to pull you need new feeders. They are worn down.
You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.
Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.
When you sew the machine must be set at the correct settings. If your machine won't straight stitch, turn it off at the power point and then turn it back on. Most machines reset to the default straight stitch setting. Secondly when you sew the presser foot must be down. This engages the "feed dogs" or the triangular looking "teeth" below the presser foot. As you sew, the feed dogs grab the two layers of fabric pulling them through, the thread above (spool) and the thread below (bobbin) meet to form the stitch. Finally, maybe fiddling around with dials and settings you may have dropped, or disengaged the feed dogs. Check with your manual on how to re-engage the feed dogs. Hope this helps and happy sewing. Remember, when all else fails..... read the manual.
My guess is that you have lost all of your upper tension and you may have your needle in backward. Unthread the machine.Raise the presser foot.Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position.Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5.Remove the needle and replace it making sure that the flat side of the needle shank is to the back.Thread the machine. With the presser foot up, the upper thread should pull through easily and then grab when the presser foot is lowered. Test sew. The upper tension pulls the stitches up and the lower tension pulls the stitches down. When they pull properly, the stitch is even.
