The feeder feet does not move on my Singer 534

The feeder feet move back by depressing the Reverse button, however the fabric will not feed. I have oiled the machine where indicated and removed all lint. I have NOT taken it apart besides the normal removal of the pressure foot and bobbin tray.

SOURCE: feed dog is not working.

Think of it as if it as two sets of fingers, behind and in front of where you are making the stitch. The numbers on the indicator should be thought of as X to one. 1 is always the rear hand, and X is the front one. If you go to a lesser number (like 0.5) with your front hand (feed dog) it means that they only feed the fabric one half as far as the rear one, so you are stretching the fabric at the point where it is being sewn. If you go to a larger number (like 2) that should be read as 2 to 1. In other words, your front hand is pushing the fabric twice as far as the rear one is, so it is compressing the fabric where it is being sewn. Wonderful invention!

SOURCE: fabric won't feed forward

Do the feed dogs move up and down? If they dont the plastic gear underenth has probably broken you can take this to a singer dealer and have them replace the plastic gear with a nylon one which would last longer than that did

SOURCE: I have a singer 3343c

the presser foot only holds the fabric against the feed dogs in the needle plate area

check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position

if not there should be a nob in the feed dog area to move them up & down

on some models when you remove the extension table the nob is at the back

SOURCE: I place the fabric on

This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

Hi there. I have a singer 507 machine which was sewing fine until I changed thread in bobbin and now the feeder teeth are not moving to feed thE fabric thru, not sure what I may have done - Help!


the bobbin has nothing to do with the feed teeth
however it is possible that at some point you moved the forward /reverse knob lever to middle where the teeth will not move

Singer model no 9022 feeder feet does not move material thread bunges under material


Check that the stitch length is set high enough that the feed dogs will actually advance the fabric. Setting the stitch length too low will cause the machine to basically sew in place.

Also, check that the feed dogs have not been "dropped" to allow darning or free motion quilting. Dropping the feed dogs lowers them so they will not rise above the needleplate and will not grip nor move the fabric.

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it may need a good cleaning and oiling. If the old oil has solidified, it could be preventing the feed dogs from moving like they should.

The little Teeth/feeder under the foot doesn't push the fabric out. The fabric doesn't move


check where the direction button/lever is
it controls the feed mechanism and if it is in the middle the teeth will just go up and down
set it one way and it moves forward and set the other way will go in reverse
it is graduated to provide a stitch length ( number of stitches per 1")

How to raise feeder feet?


Check on the right end of the machine to see if the indented button is pushed in at the bottom of the side panel. There is a picture just above it that shows the button out for straight or zigzag sewing, and the button in for darning or mending. The feed dog are lowered for darning and mending so you can move the fabric however you want to move it.

In the center of the stitch length knob (at the right side of the machine) is a button. You would push that button in to get the machine to reverse.

FEEDER FEET WILL NOT PULL FABRIC,REVERSE WORKSB


I'm sorry to say that it sounds like you have a broken gear that is preventing the feed dogs from moving properly. Depending on the machine, this could be a very expensive repair.
