My Brother VX-1010 isn't advancing the fabric when I run the machine. Any suggestions? It will sew if I pull the fabric through.

SOURCE: Machine not sewing

 If you have the machine threaded correctly, and are absolutely sure. New needles installed and it still does not sew, you most definitely have a timing problem. You should take to a qualified service center to be properly timed.

SOURCE: My Janome Harmony 1017 won't

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

What is your stitch length? I have always followed the rule... Bulky/Long stitches, Fine/Small stitches. If you have a "walking foot attachment otherwise known as an even feed might give that a try as well.

DO NOT PULL IT. Increase the pressure on the presser foot.

I have a brother VX 950 it sews well except when it con to 2-3 layered frabric it often slip. The wheel turns but the neddle are wont continue downward and sew the fabrin

Make sure you are using a brand new needle made for the type of fabric you are sewing.

Could be that the belt is slipping on your machine. You may want to take it for a checkup.

    Shuttle on a Brother VX-1120 sewing machine will not pick up the bobbin thread

    Bobbin in backwards, needle in backwards, needle damaged, needle too small for the thickness of fabric or needle not the correct needle system for the machine are my first guesses. Try a new size 12/80 needle, flat of the needle to the back of the machine, completely up in the needle clamp as a first pass at the problem.

    Brother sewing machine model vx 1140

    Try these suggestions

    1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed

    2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide

    3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case

    4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever

    5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

    6. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

    Problem with brother vx-1120 will not feed fabric

    This is usually caused by the feed-dog ( the metal teeth in the area below the needle) being down instead of up - run your finger under there (over the teeth) if they do not stick up above the base line of the machine, they cannot feed the fabric. If this is the case, look in your manual (or and online manual for your machine) and find out how to put the feed dog up. Other than this, some machines have a plastic plate which fits over the feed dog, so that you can do free machine embroidery, if this is the case, you should be able to remove this and the fabric will feed through

    Uneven feeding on the elna jubilee

    The fabric is puckering because of fabric slippage. The pressure of the foot is keeping the fabric from moving when the feed dogs move the lower layer of fabric.
    I think this machine may have a pressure adjustment regulator on it. If it is on the top left side,towards the back of the machine. It will be round and chrome color. Loosen the pressure and, if necessary, pull the fabric gently towards the rear while you are sewing.
    A walking foot attachment will help but since it is so wide you may not be able to use it.A roller foot is an acceptable substitute but that may be too wide also.If everything else fails you will need to pin the layers together to keep them from slipping.
    Hope this helps.
    P.S. Please don't rate this post unless it solves your problem. Thanks
