SOURCE: Juki Sewing machine DDL-555. After 4-5 hours use feed not moving

Sounds like as the machine builds up friction from extended use, some vital part is lacking lubrication and is seizing up. A good service person will remove ALL of the covers and thoroughly air clean and oil every moving part. Sometimes these dry points are hard to find and patience is required.

You can get a sewing machine oiler with a long applicator and put a drop of oil on anything that moves, but over oiling can be messy.

SOURCE: Sewing thick fabric and machine won't send it through

Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)

Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)

My new janome 2212 isn't feeding my fabric


ok. Never pull fabric, it will bend the needle and cause you even more problem. So stop doing that.

Look in your manual for where the feed dog switch is. It might be under the "darning" area.

Good luck

The thread loops under the fabric


Your machine isn't threaded correctly... or the needle isn't the right size, or the top tension is too loose.

My Janome KT 35 made a noisy sounds, and the threads didnt sew on the fabric. what should i do?


Check under your needle plate for a build up of bits of thread. Look for the tiny wick under the bobbin in the race area... give it 1 (one) drop of oil. Make sure you needle isn't bent and is fully seated.

My BV 160 is giving me problems. The fabric will not move along as I sew. I hve ck'd the feed dogs, they're ok, rethreaded the needle, bobbin, cleaned the bobbin but still not sewing.


have you checked the presser foot to see if the presser foot is holding
the fabric against the feed dogs so they can move the fabric thru to
be sewn by the needle?

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

CI just got my sewing maching six month ago and now for the first time it giving me problem . whenever im sewing the fabric won't move please please !!! help me to fix the problem.


in the needle plate area you'll find the feed dogs, they move the fabric forward as you sew, they should be up to sew . most sewing machine have a lever or knob that can be moved to change the feed dog position, unless then knob is broken

We have lost the extra manual for the necchi 6022 sewing machine. It had the instructions on how to create designs and what settings to use when using the serger foot in stretching/elastic material. I...


I'm a bit confused, this isn't a serger machine as far as I can see. So do you mean an overcasting foot where you sew a XXXXX type stitch along the edge of the fabric? The overcasting foot just helps you to line up the fabric edge and sew over it neatly.

if you go to this page http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/necchi-6022-sewing-machine-parts.aspx
there is an instruction manual for sale.

http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ is also a great resouce on sewing machine feet with good photos of what they are used for.

Here is a video of overcasting foot in action http://www.sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video/34/adjustable-overcast-foot.html

If you are wanting to sew knit fabric then you just need to use a small zig zag stitch and a ball point needle to put elasticity into the seam. Or your model may have a stretch stitch, where the fabric is moved forwards and backwards during the stitch formation to add some elasticity.

Sewing elastic stretched onto fabric is a bit different with a SM, can be fiddly and hard to keep everything lined up nicely and stretched. Some machines have a little device which clips onto the needle plate in front of the needle that you can feed elastic through and tighten it to tension it, then just use a three step zig zag stitch to seam over this onto your fabric. But I don't know if Necchi has such a thing, your needle plate would need holes in front for it to clip into. Elna had these on their swiss machines in the 80's but haven't seen a similar device for a while.

Hope I've answered your question and not completely misunderstood your problem. Purchasing a manual is often the best way forward when a machine is unfamilar. Or www.sewing.about.com is great resource.

If the loops are forming on the bottom it is the TOP thread tension you need to check. Make sure it isn't too loose. Also is the needle the right type and size for the fabric? Check the stitch out on plain cotton fabric if a tension adjustment doesn't fix it.

The TOP thread effects the UNDERSIDE of the stitch and the BOBBIN thread effects the TOPSIDE of the stitch :)
