SOURCE: Needles for white 1418

Hi. Needles come in standardized sizes, depending on what weight and type of fabric you want to sew. Your White 1418 should take any needles designed for home sewing. Check out http://www.sewitworks.com/

This site has great information on needles and which ones to use with which fabrics.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.

If you have taken the hook out that is the half moon shape first of all make sure the needle is at the top of the machine, hook in, gate up and that is all there is to it.

Hi, Janome 124 - top thread picks up the bobbin thread, motor sounds good. Th feed dogs won't pull fabric (or paper) thru the machine - dogs don't stick up much above the plate. Help please! Jan


Remove the needle plate and clean the feed dogs with a brush...remove any lint and bits of thread.
A couple of drops of sewing machine oil might help to loosen the feed dogs up. (maybe let the oil seep in and then turn the handwheel towards yourself to help things along.
One other thought:
If your machine has feed dog lowering capability you might want to move that lever/switch back and forth a couple of times.
The feed dogs might not appear to raise or lower, but some machines will only re-engage raised feed dogs when the machine starts to stitch.

Also...verify that the presser foot tension isn't too strong/heavy...and temporarily try using a longer stitch length setting.

How to I adjust the feed dog when using the the zig zag feature?


1. The feed dog is adjusted by raising or lowering the length of stitches.
2. The other control that is of concern for zigzag stitches is the width control being raised or lowered.

My Bernina 930 does not feed the fabric through the feed dogs. Hoe do I fix this?


Did you unknowingly drop the feed dogs, as for darning? It is the lowest knob on the right, the silver dial in the center raises and lowers the feed dogs.

With the straight stitch set to zero the feed dogs should be down. To use a different number will make the feed dogs rise above the plate.

How do i raise the feed dogs on my singer 30215 machine


Slide of the the little table with the accessories in.There is a feed dog adjustment lever at the back of the machine. sliding the lever to the 2 filled in arrows pointing down, will lower them and the 2 filled in arrows pointing up will raise them. The feed dogs will not rise up if you do not turn the hand wheel manually, even if the lever is slid to the right.You must make a complete turn of the wheel to raise the feed dogs.
Best wishes.

I have a brother ps-53 and after fixing an issue with the bobbin thread not raising I am now having an issue with the feed dog. When turning the balance wheel forward (or by using the pedal as if to sew)...


Sounds almost as if the feed dogs are canted or angled instead of being level. That's an adjustment you would need to get into the lower mechanics for. Other than that I can only wish you luck.

Feed dogs


I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D
