Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

Open Question

Bernina 700 (1966) The drop feed knob does not raise the feeder so the material will not move forwards.

I have moved the knob to both positions but it will not move the material under the needle.

SOURCE: I have an older 1998 portable Bernina with feeder problems.

Maybe just working that bullet shaped part will get it going. If it's a 930, you need to turn the handwheel to make the dogs get back into 'operational mode' after you move the knob.

Sometimes the mechanism is stuck behind the knob. Don't force the knob. It's possible to take the motor casing off and work it loose. Use TriFlow lubricant (small black bottle Sherwin-Williams) and leave for a while. Push gently with a pencil. Whatever you do, don't whack it with a hammer, like some folks say. It likely needs to move in the other direction (if it's stuck in 'regular' mode) i.e. towards the needle end.

Material won't move? How to adjust feed dog if that is the problem


Is the feed dog raised into sewing position and not dropped as for darning? Feed dogs need to be in the raised position in order to pull the fabric through the machine.

If the stitch length is set too short, it will cause the fabric to barely move thereby causing the machine to stitch in one place.

Raise your presser foot and gently rotate the handwheel and watch the feed dogs. Do they rise when coming to the front of the machine, move toward the back of the machine, drop down below the needle plate, and move forward to the front of the machine again? If so, the feed dogs are working properly.

If the feed dogs never rise, they are in the dropped position for darning or free motion quilting when you would move the fabric manually.

If, on the other hand, the feed dogs do not move at all, then they are seized and you should probably get your machine serviced.

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.

Raise and lower the feed dogs


the feed dogs are the saw toothed piece under the press foot
they go down move forward raise up move back in time with the needle to pull the material through for the next stitch
the amount of movement ( stitch length) is set by the position of the forward and reverse lever/ knob

The Feeder Dogs are not moving forward or backwards on my sewing machine.


Are the Feed Dogs dropped? Check your manual for the location of the switch. .... otherwise your mechanism has been compromised. Take it in for repair.

Machine works but doesnt move forward


Could be that the feed dog is in the down position. The feed dog consists of serrated sections which move together under the fabric and move it under the needle. Run the machine unthreaded and you should see the serrated sections lift above the needle plate, move forward and then drop again. If this doesn't happen the "drop feed dog" knob on the front of the machine could be pushed in. Look for a small knob about 1/2 inch across on the right front of the machine. Push on it and move it sideways at the same time. If it pops out this means that the feed dog is now up and you should be able to sew.
