Question about Sewing Machines
SO, my machine has a very nice stitch and sometimes feeds through and sometimes just sits in place with motor revving. I lifted up the feeddogs, and doesnt change it and lowered them and it feeds through with a push to the wheel...what is the deal? I finished several projects with a perfect stitch but had to nudge occasionally after stopping...

Have you tried the feed dog switch? If it hasn't been used for several years, a trip to a service man would do it the world of good, and he would be able to fix your problem too.

Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.

Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.
