They are supposed to pull it. is fabric puckering? it could be a problem with tension. try lowering or raising until it works right.

Feeder not moving


knotted up thread under the material indicates that the needle thread tension is incorrect ( needs tightening)
once you have that correct the material, will feed normally
use scrap when adjusting and the correct tension is when the top and bottom threads meet at the join ( middle -center )of the materials being sewn

The Feeder Dogs are not moving forward or backwards on my sewing machine.


Are the Feed Dogs dropped? Check your manual for the location of the switch. .... otherwise your mechanism has been compromised. Take it in for repair.

The feeder on my 6690 won't pull material through


Look in your owner's manual. I'm sure your machine has a reverse feed button but don't know if you can manually disable the feed teeth. If it is so equipped, it doesn't drop the teeth. Rather, it simply causes them to go straight up and down. If the teeth truly stay below the needle plate level, they are likely out of adjustment and need to bereadjusted and raised.

I cant get the material feeder to come up so that the material can slide


Make sure feed dogs (teeth in needle plate beneath needle) are showing. Flip switch to UP position to "feed" fabric. Sometimes control fir this located on back of machine lower left side and " hidden" by your extension table, so remove that table and you'll find the switch! Jimmy

The feeder won't work right.


The machine is old and may not have been maintained. The feed dogs may be rusted.

Remove the needle plate and bobbin. Lightly mist the feed dogs with wd-40. Wipe away the excess with cotton swabs.

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.

Kenmore sewing machine # 385.17626 feed dogs not advancing fabric. Appear to move up and down, but not forward to back.


I had the same problem and had recently posted my own message, with no replies. Took it to a repair person and he fixed it at no cost - it was stuck in reverse because the mechanism(s) were all gunked up. Take off the accessory box on the machine and the bottom plate. move the mechanism so they move freely and take out any gunk you see. The feeder dogs should now move back & forth in addition to up & down, feeding the material properly
