It sounds like the feed dogs are not working, can you see them in the

with your finger. what is the name and model of the sewing machine?

SOURCE: backward stitching

Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

There is either a "darning" option knob on machine, lower right hand, or a metal rod on top right that you use to lower the feeddogs.

Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)

Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)

After setting up the buttonhole attachment, etc. I press start and the needle goes up and down but it does not move or make the buttonhole. How do I fix this?


Please provide a make & model of machine. We can't begin to address your problem without more information.

Check that the feed dogs are in the raised position or the fabric will not move.

Prelude. How can I adjust a feed dog to go left to right?


Sewing machine feed dogs generally do not move sideways. They move only forward or backward. Embroidery machines will stitch in all directions but only because they use hoops and not feed dogs to move the fabric. If you need the stitch to go a different direction, you can try rotating the fabric. Free motion quilting uses your hands to move the fabric under the needle but the feed dogs are not in use.

Serger won't chain off a stitch. Stitches won't chain and hold to fabric. Added new needle, rethreaded whole machine. Stitches won't connect to fabric or make a chain.


is it possible that the needles are in backwards?
it's very possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop to be retimed

Won't sew, the fabric stays in one spot


is the problem the fabric is not moving forward but staying in one spot? which would mean the feeddogs need to be checked to see what position there in --up for sewing---down for darning
or the thread is not feeding into the machine?

if you have a manual check where your feed dog knob is, push the knob in the opposite direction,,if that doesn't help then something may be wrong with the feed dogs,,you should be able to see the feed dogs in the needle plate area & to feel them with your fingers.
you may need to have the machine serviced at a sewing shop

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

in the needle plate area you'll find the feed dogs, they move the fabric forward as you sew, they should be up to sew . most sewing machine have a lever or knob that can be moved to change the feed dog position, unless then knob is broken
