Most likely the bobbin case is not aligned correctly .Insert the bobbin case so that the projection on the boobin case aligns with the spring.

The feed dogs are hitting the needle plate.


Sometimes it is just a bunch of lint built up under the needle plate between the feed dogs. Remove the needle plate (usually two screws) and clean out the lint.
Hope that helps!

How do I get the sewing needle to move forward on my Janome sewing machine?


Check to see if the feed dogs are lowered. There should be a lever or switch on the front or back of the sewing arm that drops the feed dogs for free motion sewing.

Also check under the needle plate for lint build up. This can prevent the feed dogs from raising.

Good luck!

I have been sewing all morning. Suddenly the fabric does not feed everything is clean


Look at the feed dogs to see if they are rising above the needle plate at least 1 mm. If not rising lint may have felted between the feed dogs and the needle plate. It could also be the feed dogs have been lowered, or the height has slipped. If the feed dogs are above the needle plate turn the hand wheel and see if they are moving from the front of the machine to the back. If not it is a length adjustment. If this is normal the pressure on the fabric may be too low. Another problem may be the timing of the feed dogs. The feed dogs should rise above the needle plate when the needle leaves the fabric and descend when the needle comes down into the fabric. This requires an expert to fix.

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.


Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

White sewing machine, model 1777, the needle gets bent, bobbin makes a mess when sewing, won't fed fabric


Oh yuck! this sounds terrible. Sounds like maybe you have two problems going on and feeding into each other. The first problem may be that the machine needs a good cleaning Here's what I'd do:

1. Take apart the bobbin assembly and clean it out completely.
2. Take off the feed dogs if you can (first, you'll need to take off the throat plate.) Clean the feed dogs as thoroughly as possible.
3. Brush out any/all lint, threads, dust, etc.
4. Oil the machine.
5. Make sure you're using the right size needle for the fabric
6. Make sure you're using the right presser foot

The other problem may be that the needle is hitting the throat plate or something else it shouldn't. Using a new needle, slowly move it down to see where it's hitting or rubbing. Check that the needle is inserted as far in as it will go and that it's being held securely.

When you start sewing, hold the upper thread and the bobbin thread together behind the needle so there's no slack. This usually prevents 'bird nests'.

Hope this helps!

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.

Breaking needle


Sounds like the timing is off, have to take foot off, take plate off, put it in the zz position and using the hand wheel turn(with new needle in) and see where it is hitting feed dog, loosening the screws to the feed dog and moving it in the opposite direction out of the way so as not to hit. let me know how that works

Fabric not feeding and jamming occurs


When this happens it is because the thread tension was not right so it gets stuck under the bobbin case and the feed dogs. Use a bigger lint brush and take out the bobbin casing and clean out the shuttle. When you rethread pull slightly on the thread before you feed it through the needle. This will make sure the thread is properly in the tension discs.
