Question about Sewing Machines
It's very possible that the feed dogs have a burr on them and it needs
to be filed off
I would also check the needle plate for burrs also

SOURCE: Feed dogs not feeding material
Make sure that you did not disengage the feed dogs by accident. You should have some type of button that allows you to control the feed dogs.

SOURCE: Feed Dog problem
I listened to all that...and none of it worked...so I took the plate off and gave it a good clean. Still nothing. If your machine's a bit old like mine or tends to get stuck...physically lift up the feed dog with your fingernail or a flat screw driver or something (once the plate is off), then push the feed dog lever across and release the feed dog. It should hold in place if nothing else has worked...woo!!! :)

SOURCE: heavy material feed dog
To the very best of my knowledge (and I've been full time as a manager / owner in my family sewing machine sales / service business for almost 30 years (with many more part-time before that), I know of no "heavy material" feed dog that has been available for the Pfaff 130. Please keep in mind that the 130, while pretty heavy duty (especially compared to many of today's machines), was never manufactured or intended to be heavy duty in the sense of sewing heavy items such as uphaolstery fabrics (canvas, nagahide, etc.). It was produced with the intent of being a reliable household (non-commercial / industrial) machine with the purpose of sewing light-to-moderate heavy metrails. What exactaly are you trying to sew that leads you to the request of using "heavy material" feed dogs or that you feel Pfaff produced / manufactured such an item?

The little white button on the lower right front of the machine is the button that drops the feed teeth. If it is pressed in the feed teeth are down, push in a lift upward to be sure it's in the "Up" position. Then look on the left side of the machine, you'll see a dial, (NOT the dial facing you as you sit in front of the machine) make sure the red dot on the dial is lined up with the red dot on the painted part of the machine.
Finally look at the dial on the front of the machine. The one with the little button in the center of it. Put it on the number 3. If your machine doesn't feed fabric after doing what I've outlined then you need to take it in for service.
