SOURCE: Feed dog & auto threader problems.

Remove the needle plate and clean the lint from between the teeth of feeddogs, also around and inside bobbin case.

The switch for the feeddogs is to raise (normal sewing) or lower (free motion) and if there is no difference, the accumulated lint will have made a felt pad between the teeth forcing the feeddogs to stay down and present with the problem you describe.


When things go a little "weird", the common instinct is OIL EVERYTHING............DON'T DO IT !!! ....this is rarely the solution on its own account, and can make the servicing a great deal longer as the excess must be removed........little oil regularly, not a bucketful every 5 years is a better approach.

SOURCE: feed dog wont feed the fabric

Remove the needleplate and clean between the teeth of the feeddogs.
Ensure the feeddogs are not lowered for free motion sewing.
Don't know the make/model to be any more specific, so post back here or to the Contact Us page at  www.bargainbox.com.au if there is more to do.

SOURCE: the feed dog is not pulling the fabric and I

Hi, possible causes: see if there is an up and down movement of the feed dog during a cycle. If it moves check that the throat plate is not the feed cover plate used where fabric feed is not needed. If there is no movement, check that the setting is not for embroidering where the feed dog is neutralized for free motion stitching. Otherwise open the buttom cover and observe its movement under various sewing settings.

SOURCE: i have a brother ult2003d.

Have you checked your manual? It tells on page 1-6 about the feed dog lever, that must be put moved to the right. Now on pg 1-7 it tells you how a adjust your presser foot pressure. You can look at your manual under customer support at www.brother-usa.com. and download it. Then, save it and enlarge the diagrams. You really need to read your manual and familiarize yourself with the different levers and threading. If, the manual does not answer your questions call Brother and see if they have a dvd of this machine to teach you about it. Most stores who sell the this type of machine will teach you all about it, take advantage of it because it looks like a very nice machine and you will have a great time with it after you learn all of the bells and whistles. Good luck and Happy New Year.

Hi, My Elna 7000 doesn't easily feed medium or thin fabrics. Presser Foot tension lever is position 2 and the Feed Dog is rising normally. Any thoughts please? Does the F Dog wear out in any way?


Generally, the lighter the fabric weight, the heavier the presser foot pressure. Yes, feed dogs do wear with use. Do not run the machine without fabric between the presser foot and the feed dogs--the feed dogs constantly rubbing against the presser foot will quickly wear the feed dog points. Store the machine with the presser foot down with a pad between the presser foot and feed dogs (even a scrap piece of fabric will do). Also, be sure to clean the feed dogs of any gunky build-up. If the feed dog points are worn, it may be worthwhile to have them replaced.

What is a feed dog in memory craft 9500 and how to lower the feed dog


Sewing machines have feed dogs to pull the fabric through the machine. They are usually a pair of metal teeth that are situated in the needleplate and press against the presser foot. They grip the fabric and pull the fabric under the presser foot as the needle stitches.

You can find the drop feed dog instructions in the owner's manual:

My new janome 2212 isn't feeding my fabric


ok. Never pull fabric, it will bend the needle and cause you even more problem. So stop doing that.

Look in your manual for where the feed dog switch is. It might be under the "darning" area.

Good luck

Why does the backing gather up even though it is penned and sprayed with quilting spray


Presser foot tension is to low for the weight/finish of the fabric, or bottom dogs are worn.
  • The feed dog feeds the fabric under the presser foot while you guide the fabric.


  • The feed dog regulates the stitch length by how much fabric passes under the presser foot as the machine stitches.


  • It is important for you to not push and pull the fabric under the presser foot. Allow the feed dog to move the fabric, so that you do not bend and break sewing machine needles.
Hope this helps.

Feed dogs are not pulling the material back


White sewing machine model 510, feed dog problem; fabric is not moving; I must firmly pull fabric through.

The feed dog is moving; fabric is not.

The fabric is not feeding properly; the fabric goes back and forth. However, the fabric does not continue to move away from me.

The feed dog is positioned up and is not smooth, it feels rough when I touch it with my fingers.

Because I had not used this sewing machine for a couple of years, before sewing, I cleaned the inside with the wire brush that came with the machine.

In an attempt to trouble shoot the problem, I applied varying pressure foot levels and stitch lengths.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what may be the problem?
