Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
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?

Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.

I listened to all that...and none of it worked...so I took the plate off and gave it a good clean. Still nothing. If your machine's a bit old like mine or tends to get stuck...physically lift up the feed dog with your fingernail or a flat screw driver or something (once the plate is off), then push the feed dog lever across and release the feed dog. It should hold in place if nothing else has worked...woo!!! :)
