Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

You might be in "Stopmatic" mode. Check if your pressure lifter bar is in the upper most position, if it is the machine is disengage and you are set to wind your bobbin. Lower it to the 3 o-clock position this will engage the machine and the needle will operate.

SOURCE: Feed dog lever not working on my Kenmore 385 24 stitch machine

I surfed around this site for various suggestions, finally took the bottom plate off and cleaned and oiled all the parts along that rod that goes right across (think it's a drive bar that rotates). Ran the machine without thread in for a few minutes to let the oil soak in. Machine now works fine.

Given Pfaff 297-1 sewing machine for charity work everthing seems to be right but it does not feed - the feedogs seem to be too low. It's sewing steadily on the spot.


Could be the feed dogs are lowered to do darning. Here's a manual:

PFAFF 294 Instruction Book Page 11

See if the A/B switch makes any difference in the feed dogs.

Sometimes these old machines haven't been oiled like they should and it's possible the feed dogs are stuck in the lowered position. Also, if it was used a lot the feed dogs get worn and no longer work like they should.

Hello, I have a very old but wonderful Pfaff 260 automatic and the feed seems to be going backwards but is not pulling the fabric at all?


First, verify that the stitch length is set high enough that the feed dogs should be pulling the fabric to create a stitch.

If you have not recently oiled the machine, the feed dog mechanism may be stuck due to old oil that has solidified. Pick up some liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. While gently rocking the handwheel, apply a couple drops everywhere that metal rubs against metal. Do NOT oil rubber, leather, or synthetic parts!!! Don't forget to hit the spots under the sewing surface, ie the feed dogs, bobbin area, etc. Also, move the levers and selectors and hit those with a couple drops of oil. If things are still a bit sluggish, you can apply hot air from a handheld hairdryer at the interior of the machine. The heat will help loosen things.

P.S.--I picked up a frozen Pfaff 260 at the thrift store for $25. Used the above method to get things loose and now it sews beautifully!!!

Where are the oil holes in a pfaff 1222e sewing machine


There are no oil holes in a 1222e. I apply a light oil to the inside of the bobbin case and where you clip the bobbin in the machine. I also take off the top and drop a light oil on the moving shaft. I was told no other lubrication was needed by the owner.

Can you get me a Pfaff 1222E motor please? Th


You will need a Pfaff dealer or go direct to the manufacturer or even go on ebay and try and purchase a similar model which may be cheaper thanh a new motor and you can then swap motor over.

1222e has loose lower shaft that drives the feed


You can buy the service manual from eaby or you can download it from sewingwishlist.com in pdf format. Once in a while my 1222SE would act up. It's been really good having a service manual when you need it. As far as I know all the gears can be easily replaced by loosening it's flathead setscrew.
