Question about Singer Sewing Machines
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

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.
