Feed dog drive gear(2) are plastic and are probably stripped. Always replace them in pairs. While you are at it replace both hook drive gears as well. It will run as good as new.

Its quite possible that the stitch length knob is set on 0 or that you have the feeddogs set on darning which drops them below the plate (if it has this feature). Otherwise the feedogs are gummed up and everything needs a good cleaning and oiling.
Hope this helps.

    I have been a sewing machine tech for around 20 years and see thius a lot. Its most likely stuck. Take bottom panel off heat it all up with a blowdryer to soften the old oil and grease. Then re-oil everything that is supposed to move. And to be brutally honest, even though this may work this type of Singer is always going to have one problem or another. They weren't made that well. But I get sentimental value if thats the case. You might also chech the presser foot pressure as well. If its not enough the fabric won't move either. Other things too, maybe the feeddogs dropped a bit and are too low.

How to change needle position (left, right, center)


Which stitch are you using? As far as I can tell, the Stylist 7258 only allows you to change the needle position for straight stitches. If the machine is set to Pattern 00, press the right or left buttons from the 4 arrow keys in the manual setting arrows until the needle is in the desired position.

For all other stitches, the left/right arrows adjust the stitch width. This is described on page 30 (in English) of the manual. You can download the manual from the product page under the support tab: http://www.singerco.com/products/2101/7258-stylist#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/4951b452e963a8fe1dd1fd83fbac68a35df8cf19.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How to move feed dogs under needle for singer 514


First, make sure the feed dogs are in the up position and NOT dropped for darning.

Second, check that the stitch length is set to at least a 2 or 2.5 to make sure the feed dogs will actually move the fabric a noticeable distance. The closer the stitch length is set to zero, the closer together the stitches will be until it will sew only in one place because the fabric will no longer advance.

The feed dogs need to move. They should actually rise, move toward the back of the machine, drop down, move forward to the position to again rise--this creates one stitch. If the fabric is not moving, then it is possible that your machine has not been cleaned and oiled recently. Old oil will dry and cause the moving parts to seize.

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

The feed on my Singer 538 will not pull my fabric thru. Help appreciated.


Without fabric in your machine and with the presser foot raised, do the feed dogs move front->back? Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is the stitch length at a 10-12 stitch per inch setting so that the fabric actually moves (try increasing the stitch length to see if it makes a difference)?

Does your machine have a presser foot pressure adjustment? If you are sewing light weight fabric, the pressure may need to increased so there is more pressure applied by the presser foot to the feed dogs. You can also try adding a strip of tear-away or wash-away stabilizer to the underside of the fabric as you stitch so the feed dogs have something to grip.

Are the tips of the feed dogs rounded? Could be worn and need replacement.

If the feed dogs are not moving, how long has it been since the machine was cleaned and oiled?

If the feed dogs remain below the needle plate, and the feed dog lever does not activate them, then perhaps something is disconnected in the feed dog mechanism. The feed dogs should rise when stitching begins.

try changing the needle--make sure the needle is the correct one
for the fabric being sewed.
also make sure the needle is turned the correct way in the needle
holder and pushed all the way up into the needle holder.

I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs raised.


The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.
