SOURCE: My fabric won't advance.
Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

SOURCE: the dog feeds will not
The first thing I would check is the button/switch on the back that raises and lowers the feed dogs. This has happened to me and I still don't know how they got lowered. If they are in the proper position then remove the cover plate and check for dust thread or other foreign objects... Hope this helps!

SOURCE: feed dog wont feed the fabric
Remove the needleplate and clean between the teeth of the feeddogs.
Ensure the feeddogs are not lowered for free motion sewing.
Don't know the make/model to be any more specific, so post back here or to the Contact Us page at www.bargainbox.com.au if there is more to do.

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.

Hi, possible causes: see if there is an up and down movement of the feed dog during a cycle. If it moves check that the throat plate is not the feed cover plate used where fabric feed is not needed. If there is no movement, check that the setting is not for embroidering where the feed dog is neutralized for free motion stitching. Otherwise open the buttom cover and observe its movement under various sewing settings.
