SOURCE: material will not feed across

This machine has a pressure regulator on the left side.You should look to see that it is not loosened. When you lift up on the presser foot it should have resistance.
Then look at the feed dogs to see that they are moving, Set the stitch length at 4 and turn the hand wheel. The teeth should move towards the back of the machine. They should also be slightly above the needle plate as they go back and below the surface of the plate as they come forward.
If they don't rise above the plate , remove the needle plate and clean between the slots of the teeth.

SOURCE: backward stitching

Knowing which kind of machine you have helps alot. Just guessing but maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck and needs some oil in it to free it up. Or the buttonhole mechanism is stuck in reverse part of it.
Probably you should have it looked at.

SOURCE: will not feed material or sew

Before you take it to a repair shop make sure that your one step buttonhole lever has not been moved by mistake. That happened to me just yesterday. If your machine keeps sewing in reverse all the time that could be your problem. It happened when I was going over all the parts in my sewing class. Although material was feeding through but everything was sewing in reverse. Check that out and make sure your buttonhole lever (#14) on the diagram is pushed up. I don't know if that is your problem but it is something you can try.

SOURCE: started sewing backwards now not moving material at all

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.

Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.

Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

Janome Machine will not feed material !!


If the fabric is not feeding, the feed dogs are probably not operating properly. Check that they have not been dropped below the needle plate (which is done when darning or free motion quilting). In this setting, the feed dogs never rise above the needle plate to grab and pull the fabric.

The other issue could be that the feed dogs are defective or perhaps seized.

Since you did not provide a model, I can provide only this assistance. It would be helpful to locate (search for make model manual) for your machine.

Manual for brother vx757 free please


A manual feed is used primarily in freehand embroidery, quilting, and shoe repair. With manual feed, the stitch length and direction is controlled entirely by the motion of the material being sewn. Frequently some form of hoop or stabilizing material is used with fabric to keep the material under proper tension and aid in moving it around. Most household machines can be set for manual feed by disengaging the drop feed dogs. Most industrial machines can not be used for manual feed without actually removing the feed dogs.

When i start to sew my presser foot is not moving at all and all thread i think accumulate at the back of cloth .. please help


The presser foot should only glide over the material. The feed dogs move the material. Check to see if your machine has a drop feed feature... for embroidery... or darning, etc. If it does return the feeds to sewing position.

When i start sewing sometimes the material gets sucked down into the feeds dogs. this causes the thread and the material to make a mess i sometimes can not get the thread out i am making quilt pieces


Use a scrap of fabric under the pressure foot as a leader and feed the quilt square after it clears just like if you are chain sewing. After you have sewn the square clip the scrap off and use it again.

White model 445 material won't feed?????


Hi Jason. I wonder if you have your feed dogs lowered. It's near the bobbin area.

Here's a pdf of your manual. It talks about "drop feed" on book page 19

Good luck

Machine won't feed material. I have to pull while sewing.


First of all stop pulling that will only bend your needle and cause further problems.

Check to make sure your feed dogs are engaged. There should be a switch somewhere around the sewing area front or back or perhaps under a flat bed attachment.
