There is a hidden lever that disables the feet from raising. Remove the extension table (http://sewandserge.com/machimages/MechanicalSewDia2.jpg) and and you'll see a lever recessed into to the left hand edge of the table. Move lever towards operator so it extends and feet will re-enable.

I had this problem but eventually discovered that there was a trick to raising the feet back up. It has to do with the location of the needle and/or presser foot. I think I had to actually begin sewing before it rasied up. I don't remember exactly but fool around with these ideas and hopefully it will work.

The jagged teeth on sewing plate are not moving to move the material forward. U will have to look under the machine to check out the mechanism that is supposed to move them and find the part that is the cause of no transmission of power to the teeth assembly.

Brother CS6000i with setting 00 for straight line stitch is making a left curve stitches instead going straight.


***Your feed dog under the pressure foot seems to be pulling on one side a little harder which indicates wear. It is likely to solve the problem by replacing the feed dog.
***Before you do this try to lower the pressure on the pressure foot. If the material you are sewing is thick it will have an effect on the pull of the feed dogs. The material you are sewing that you sent appears to be jeans material. It looks like it is thick and somewhat slippery.

How do I stop my needle from breaking and how to I see to it that the machine is self feeding the material forward instead of me having to pull it towards me to get the stitches into the material?


The needle may be bent, but surely the material should feed away from you not towards? Is the bobbin in correctly? If you have inadvertently left the feed dogs down the material will not be gripped and stay in the same place instead of moving. Check.

Why is feed dog not moving material?


your feed dog has a button to lower or raise the teeth, The lower is like for stand still sewing and some way your teeth has gotten lowered Run your fingers across them and find the button to make them stand up again. You can feel the difference. hope this helps

I cant get the material feeder to come up so that the material can slide


Make sure feed dogs (teeth in needle plate beneath needle) are showing. Flip switch to UP position to "feed" fabric. Sometimes control fir this located on back of machine lower left side and " hidden" by your extension table, so remove that table and you'll find the switch! Jimmy

How do I get the teeth to grab and advance the material on my very old Bernina 830?


Well there's a number of reasons why it may not be advancing the material. First, ensure that the teeth are completely cleaned-out - get an old toothbrush, or similar with firm filaments and, with the stitch-plate removed and the bobbin door open, give the teeth a really firm clean across the teeth to remove anything in between ... this is especially important if you've been sewing with metallised fabric or thread. If the teeth are nice and clean, check if they are still pyramidal with a reasonably 'sharp' point facing backwards - if the machine is very old and very well used, the teeth might be rather rounded and it may be time that you have a new feed dog fitted ... some of the old machines are difficult to obtain spares, but they're mostly still out there. Most commonly, check how far the teeth of the feed dogs protrude above the stitch plate ... this is a bit difficult to do and should really be done with a proper gauge, but generally they should protrude 1mm above the stitch plate - less than that and you wont get the material to move properly, especially if its fine material. Lastly, it could be the foot pressure that's the problem ... if there's inadequate foot pressure, the material will not be pushed adequately onto the dogs. Again, unfortunately, you really need a proper gauge to set the foot pressure, but if the dogs are clean, in reasonable condition and have 1mm of clearance above the stitch plate, you can try increasing the foot pressure a bit. This is done by opening the top cover and you will see a large-ish flat-blade screw in a threaded tube just behind where the needle bar goes up and down and to the left of the takeup arm. If the screw is rather near the top of the threaded tube, you can try screwing it down (clockwise) maybe 2-3 turns to see if it makes a difference ... of not, dont be tempted to just keep screwing up the pressure ... there's something else wrong. Oh .... and by the way .... before you've done any of the above, I assume you've checked that the feed-dogs are not dropped ! You can drop the feed-dogs to do embroidery etc on the 830 - there's a small round knob below the stitch length control - make sure its turned to the position that shows a tooth pattern and not the cross-hathced pattern and make sure the feed dogs do actually come above the stitch plate when turning the handwheel - if they dont, or moving the feed-dog drop control doesn't make any difference, then the link mechanism is almost certainly jammed (really, really common on old machines that haven't been regularly maintained!). To free that off, you need to remove the free-arm cover and look to the front right side of the mechanics - you'll see a linkage that should turn when you rotate the feed-dog drop control - if this doesn't separate or is permanently separated, whatever you do with the control, you need to give it a drop or two of Bernina sewing oil and gently help it move - once free, that should solve the problem. I cant think of any other reasons !!

Hope that helps !

I have a new "My Excel 18W/MW3018 Limited Edition"


the teeth (feed dogs) must be up enough so they can move the fabric with the help of the presser foot (or all purpose foot)

After lowering the feed teeth I am unable to raise them manually with the dial. They do raise with a mechanical "clank" as I begin to sew. The feed teeth are on the extreme right off the slot openings....


If you have been embroidering, the feed teeth will raise themselves next time you do regular sewing with a clunking noise - not really loud, but you can hear it. The feed teeth on my Des.1 are on the far right-hand side too so I think that this normal. So long as they are not fouling on the coverplate slots and the material is being fed properly by the feed teeth, your machine is fine.

Teeth do not move material forward when sewing


the problem is the feed dog is in the wrong position,, in the operation manual it should tell where the feed dog is on that sewing machine, & what position it's suppose to be in to sew normally
