SOURCE: Feed dogs don't want to feed.

Sounds like the feed dog height is not set correctly. You could fix it yourself but you would need a dealers service manual and there is a height gauge that should be used although I have set them by eye...and experience.
Bernina's are fantastic machines and I have yet to find even one that is a lemon. Just like finding a good auto mechanic, you need to find someone that actually knows more than how to blow off lint and apply oil.
Your problem should be a low cost quick fix/adjustment that can be accomplished by a knowledgeable and skilled technician.
Good luck finding one!! Bill

SOURCE: Bernina 1008 feed dog problem.

Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.
Good luck.

SOURCE: feed dogs are to low to move fabric.

Your machine needs servicing. The feeddog mechanism is stuck most likely from lint or dirt in it. Pop off the needle plate and clean good there and inside the door to the bobbincase area. The mechanism is inside that door to the right an inch or so. Covers have to be removed to clean this properly. The height adjustment is inside in that same area also. Time for servicing.
Hope the top just needs a good cleaning. Good luck.

SOURCE: Is there a way to lower the feed dogs ''a little''?

I thought this was free . . . didn't know I'd be asking to join. So, I called the shop where I purchased the machine. They were able to help me fix the problem.

How to raise the feed dog to grab the fabric better


Most Berninas have adjustable presser foot pressure. The new machines are pretty obvious as Bernina has added dials that do that. The older machines, you have to look for a screw above the needle bar that will loosen or tighten the pressure. There is usually a long spring associated with it.

This is a picture of a 930 oiling diagram. But, if you look at the arrow second red arrow from the left (top picture), points to the adjustment screw on the 930. You might find something similar for your machine.

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.

How can i keep the feed dogs from dropping when I sew?


Need more info. What kind of Bernina are you using? Feed dogs normally go up and down when sewing to move the fabric forward. Is that what you mean? Or have you lowered the feed dogs to do free motion quilting or darning and now they stay down?

My bernina 1004 feed dogs wont move when switch is put into drop position.


Not completely sure about your B. 1004 but in my model Bernina, the feed dogs are lowered so the fabric can be moved by the operator, like when free-motion quilting. The feed dogs don't have contact with the fabric, there's no need to move.

I hav e Bernina 1150. When I attach the walking


Hi, when you quilt straight lines using the walking foot, you need the feed dogs up, to move the fabric in a straight direction under the needle. When you do free motion quilting, which is done with a darning foot, your hands move the fabric in many different directions. Since you want to be the one to move the fabric, you put the feed dogs down and you do the work. So when you use the walking foot, keep your feed dogs up. When you use the darning foot, feed dogs down.

Bernina 1130 feed dogs won't feed fabric


On a Bernina 1130 the power on-off knob and the feed dog raise and lower knob look similar and are next to each other on the end of the machine, making it easy to lower the dog assembly entirely, without realizing it. Make sure you didn't accidentally lower the entire feed dog assembly by turning the feed dog knob: you can tell as you turn it if the dogs are up or down. On the Bernina 1130 the knob, like the power should be in the horizontal position to be working both feed and power.

Feed dogs are not coming up high enough to catch the fabric


The fault is with the height of the feed dogs it is an internal adjustment that you tech. should make. As a guide if you cant see the majority of the front teeth above the plate or feel them with your finger then they are to low and need to be raised. Also check that the pressure of the sewing foot is set in the right position on the left side of the machine.

Fabric doesn't advance


Have you checked your feed dog position? The fabric will not advance if the feed dogs are in the down position. For the machines which don't have the raise/lower feed dog capability, there is a plate that covers the feed dogs and must be removed to advance the fabric when sewing.
