SOURCE: Needle doesn't move the problem isn't the foot pedal

Same problem with my 400. I took it in to dealer and they said main computer board on my machine would have to be replaced. Fortunately, they agreed to get it fixed for me. My machine is 2 years old. How old is yours? I wonder if this could be a manufacturer defect on the machine? Maybe this needs to be addressed with Viking Husqvarna Corporate.

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.

SOURCE: I have an Emerald 203 When I hit the presser foot, the wheel goes round and needle moves up and down but the material does nt move

it sounds like the feed dogs are not working, if you have a manual
check and see if there is a lever to move the feed dogs up and down
and see if lever will move the feed dogs, if that lever doesn't then
the feed dogs will have to be checked.
here is a link for a manual if you don't have one

Pressure foot wont go fully down


The pressure foot is only made to push down on the material, not the feed dogs. If you put it too low it will destroy the feed dogs and the pressure foot as well as the material.
1. To adjust, lower the pressure of the pressure foot as much as you can.
2. Place a thick piece of material under the foot. Turn the hand wheel until the feed dogs are up.
3. The pressure foot rod has a screw that holds it into place. You will adjust the rod by moving it up and down until there is a small amount of pressure on the material. Tighten the screw and try your machine without a needle to see if the material will move. Now, try other thicknesses of material. The rod may need to be slightly adjusted a small amount to get it "just right".
4. PUT IN NEEDLE AND CHECK FOR ALIGNMENT TO THE HOLE. (DANGER IF NOT ALIGNED).

Just wanted to check troubleshooting ideas on the feed dogs. They seem to be engaged but not running fabric through when sewing


Check that the stitch length is set to make ~10 stitches per inch. This stitch is long enough to actually move the fabric. If the stitch length is set too short, the fabric will stay barely move and the needle will stitch almost in place.

Check that the feed dogs have not been dropped for darning or free motion quilting. In this position, they do not rise and are, therefore, unable to contact the fabric to pull it through the machine.

With the presser foot raised and using no fabric, hand rotate the handwheel and watch if the feed dogs actually drop down below the needle plate, move toward the front of the machine, then rise above the needle plate, and move toward the back of the machine. If the feed dogs are moving in this manner, then they are functioning properly.

Is there lint or gunk stuck in the feed dogs? This will restrict the ability of the feed dogs to grip the fabric.

Are the feed dogs worn? Are the little teeth worn so there are no sharp points?

What type fabric are you using? If it is very light-weight or slick fabric, the feed dogs will have a difficult time gripping the fabric. Most machines have a presser foot pressure adjustment so that more pressure is applied between the presser foot and the feed dogs. Consult your Owner's Manual. The adjustment is usually a dial either on the left side of the machine, on the front of the machine located above the needle bar, or on vintage machines it is usually a skrew located under the top lid above the needle bar.

The fabic will not move under the foot feed tried everything !!! Hve the mauels but cant figure this out !!! help and the thread in the bobbin keeps knotting up Thanks


Are the feed dogs moving when you try to stitch? If so, are they below the needle plate so they do not make contact with the fabric? If this is the case, the feed dogs have been dropped to allow darning. Check your manual and raise the feed dogs.

Is the stitch length set to at least 1 1/2 or 2? If the stitch length is set too close to zero, the needle is practically stitching in place. Lengthen the stitch so the fabric will move as the stitch is taken.

Are you sewing very fine material? If the fabric is a very light weight, there may not be enough pressure between the presser foot and the feed dogs. Most machines have an adjustment to increase the presser foot pressure. On newer machines it is usually a dial at the top left of the machine or low on the left side of the needle. Older machines sometimes have a a round cylinder the projects on the top above the needle bar that is spring loaded. Pressing the cylinder down will usually tighten the pressure. Other machines actually have a screw at the top of the needle bar that when screwed down will tighten the pressure.

I have a singer 527 and the traction feed foot is not feeding the material through when sewing all traction and threading machine correct according to instructions


Have the feed dogs been lowered for some reason and not reengaged back up? you should be ableto see them moving above the needle plate if you turn the flywheel manually towards you with the pressure foot removed and no fabric or thread in the machine.

If they are engaged and moving but not coming up then the machine will need to be serviced to get them realligned into position.

I have a Finesse sewing machine and I was sewing some placemats but it suddenly stopped feeding the material although it keeps sewing (foot moves up and down). According to the book I have checked the...


Can you see the feed dogs moving?

un thread, raise the pressure foot then manually turn the flywheel towards you and watch the feed dogs (the teeth that move under the needle plate). If they are not moving around and coming up above the needle plate then one of two things:
either you've accidentially disengaged the feed dogs, check the manual for instructions to reengage, sometimes a knob, button or slide, often on the front base or around the back of the free arm.

If they are engaged but not moving up at all, then something has gone in the drive to them, usually a gear in the free arm area. In which case, take to the shop for repair.

What is pressure foot on sewing machine. where is pressure foot


This is the foot that comes down and holds the fabric layers under the needle.

There will be a pressure foot lever to raise and lower the pressure foot at the back of the sewing area, it usually operates vertically, although some makes have a lever that works horizontally.

The pressure foot needs to be lowered BEFORE you start stitching as it activates the top tension and also helps with the stitch formation by holding the fabric firmly as the needle moves up and down.

You can read some general sewing machine info at www.sewing.about.com too.

Elna walking foot


If your SU is an Air Electronic model i.e. 80's model, Elna didn't make a walking foot to fit. However, if you've got a walking foot that is the same height from sole plate to the screw fitting as a standard Elna foot then you could give it a try. The walking foot connects to the presser bar with a screw but the needle bar also needs to hook into a secondary lever on the side of the walking foot to make the foot actually move. Probably sounds very confusing . Check the movement of the foot manually by hand turning the fly wheel to see how it works before you actually use with the motor to minimise any problems if the foot doesn't fit.

Also you'll probably only be able to do straight stitch with this foot due to the clearance around the needle plate.
