Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 16231 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have tried raising and lower feed dogs, and have had no sucess getting
material to feed for more than an inch or two, than it stays in one place.
This is actually a Kenmore 16221, not listed in list. I just bought it last week.
Is this a second hand machine ?
Is the stitch length selector set to > 1
Remove the needleplate and clean between teeth of feeddogs if it has been a while since this has been done, old lint will impede feeding.
Presser foot tension for general work needs to be set at 3, or the chromed button pushed down to the grooved line, depending on machine.
If new, call the dealer where you bought it and speak to them.
