there are no free manual for a necchi sewing machine that I know of
but incase you want to buy one here is a link for one that's only a little over $10.00 + shipping. Necchi 3537 Instruction Manual
or you can try the allyn international co, that used to sell them, here is a email address Allyn International ----phone--303-825-5200
Be certain the presser foot lifter handle is down so that it holds the fabric from the top. Then make sure the feed dogs (the little toothy looking things under the presser foot) are up or engaged. Often we'll accidentally knock the adjustment button/lever and the feed dogs go down into the machine and will not come up to provide the pulling action to feed the fabric through. Make sure the mechanics inside the machine are clean and free of dust. And if you see what seems to be a piece of felt around the feed dogs, that is actually lint and prevents the fabric from moving through easily. Use the brush that came with the machine to clean the feed dogs. Hope this helps and happy stitching!
feed dog & the presser foot must work togeather for the fabric to feed thru the machine
you should be able to see the feed dog when you look at the needle plate
open the door to the light that's were you'll find the needle bar adjuster that puts pressure on the presser foot,,it may be in the shape of a star or just round,,mine is set between the 2-3,,your may have numbers or letters,, adjust the it & then try to sew
The walking foot replaces the normal pressure foot on your machine. There is a screw on the left-hand side of the pressure shaft that holds the ankle (if your Necchi uses snap-on feet) on the shaft. Loosen this screw until the pressure foot (or the pressure foot/ankle combination) comes off. Now slip the walking foot on where the other foot came off and tighten that screw. You're ready to go!

all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up,needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the
thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread
through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or
something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the
tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It
should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the
take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your
needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.FLAT to the BACK.
I'm going to assume the button fit into the button hole foot to measure the length of button hole. If this is correct, then there is a lever very near the presser foot bar which needs to be pulled down to be engaged by the bh foot. Let me know if this is correct. sewman7
