Is it possible that you accidentally lowered the mechanism beneath the presser foot? Your manual will tell you how to lower and raise it. Are you using the same weight thread top and bottom? I use a "walking foot" to move upper and lower at the same rate when top stitching anything. Well worth the $$.

It sounds like the machine needs to be checked to see if there is a problem with a part inside the machine

The feed dogs on my sewing machine will not raise


if your question is that the fabric didn't feed when I tried a zig-zag stitch , well then this might be a normal thing to happen on your machine , some machines when set to MAX size zig-zag stitch retract the "feed dogs" as you call them so that the operator can hand move the fabric around under presser foot , this is task called "darn" and its usually for filling large holes in fabric (socks!!) and for adding embroidery too (special needle)

Just received my machine and the fabric will not feed through.


It is likely that your feed dogs have been dropped. Try following the instructions listed in the attached link. It is also possible that something got jostled in shipping, and may need adjusting. If you can locate the feed dog drop mechanism and it is engaged, you may need to take your machine back to where you purchased it and have it replaced or adjusted.

My straight stitch is not perfectly straight, what can I do?


1. Put a piece of paper on the sewing machine w/o thread. Sew for three inches.
2. Notice the needle holes are straight with the feed dogs. The pressure foot is not in line with the holes.
3. With the pressure foot down loosen the pressure foot pressure to it's lowest amount.
4. There is a screw on the arm that needs to be loosened. Afterwards, adjust the arm until the foot is parallel with the feed dogs. Tighten screw.
5. Try sewing again on the piece of paper to check for accuracy on being straight.
6. One other check is to insure the feed dogs have even wear.

THE CLOTH DOES NOT FEED WHEN I CHANGE FROM A STRAIGHT STITCH


Your pressure foot may need to be increased a little. When you change to a zigzag the distance is automatically decreased.You can increase the distance at the same time to overcome this problem.

Feed dog


you can't sew a straight stitch without the feeddogs being in the up position, or it could break a needle and damage the machine.
so when the machine says put the feed dogs up it telling you
it can't sew a straight stitch with out them up

Material doesnot move forward when stitching


there is a couple of things to check:

What stitch length have you got the machine set to? Should be 2.5 for a normal straight stitch - how you set this will depend on the make and model but most machines have some way to adjust the stitch length and width.

Or are the feed dogs lowered? this is sometimes a slide or button on the front base of the machine, sometimes a slide at the back of the free arm, again, it varies between machines. You may need to refer to your machine's manual to establish how this is controlled - you lower feed dogs for things like free motion embroidery so if your machine is computerised with lots of stitches it may even make this adjustment automatically when you choose a free motion embroidery stitch. If that is the case then changing it back to regular straight stitch should return the feed dogs to normal function.

If you raise the pressure foot, and manually turn the flywheel towards you through a couple of stitch sequences can you see the feed dogs raising and falling? If you can't see this happening at all and you are sure that the feed dogs are engaged then it is possible a drive gear in the free arm has failed in which case, you'll need to take the machine to a serviceman.

Model # 64 60 viking sewing machine looking for manual for sewing leather or canvas which cam to use in it


As to your question about leather, the 6460 has a special stitch for sewing leather. Select Colormatic cam C and install in the cam hole at the back of the machine. To remove/add a cam turn the upper left hand dial on the front of the machine to the small dot. This disengages the cam. Gently remove the cam by pulling straight out from the back of the machine. Install cam C straight in, ever so slightly twisting it back and forth into the hole to find the sweet spot. You'll hear a click when it's all the way in.

To use Viking's leather stitch, turn the upper left dial to the color yellow. (Note: The slash line on the upper left dial is a stop. You can't turn past that point. Go in the other direction to get to the icon or color you want.) Turn the upper right and bottom right dial to yellow also. The upper left dial is what selects the particular stitch on the cam, the leather stitch in this case. The upper right dial selects stitch length, and the lower right dial selects stitch width. You can move the right dials within the color range. Experiment on a scrap of cloth to get the stitch size the way you want it. The leather stitch looks like a straight stitch with a block style edging to the right of the straight stitch. This is supposed to give a stronger stitch to the leather rather than a straight stitch by itself.
If you don't have the manual for your machine: Select which of the eight cams you want to use. All the cams are removed/installed by turning the upper left dial on machine front to the small dot. At the rear of the machine, pull/insert cam straight in or out and twist slightly as you push in or remove to find the sweet spot. Move the dial away from the small dot to lock the cam in.
Turn upper left dial to stitch type you want and match the other dials to that same color. Upper right controls stitch length, lower right controls width. Bobbin tension is controlled by the dial at front left of the machine, above the needle.
Cams A-C are the workhorse cams and the rest are embroidery stitches.Straight stitch, button and stitched zig-zag will work on any cam. These stitches do not rely on matching a color code. To use those three: To select straight stitch, on the upper left dial, choose the icon that looks like a buttonhole with a zig that trails off to the right. Select stitch length on upper right dial and turn the lower right dial to zero, going by number rather than color.
To select stitched zig zag, turn upper left dial to the broken zig zag icon (to the right of the straight stitch icon). Select stitch length and width.
To move the needle to the side for buttonhole stitching or other times when you want the needle off center, turn the upper left dial to the button icon. If stitching a button hole, set stitch length to zero and lower right dial to desired stitch width. Push in the small white button that's beneath the lower right dial in order to prevent the feed dogs from moving the fabric forward. Pushing that button in is also handy for putting cloth under the foot before sewing as it prevents snagging and is used for tacking.

The fabric doesn't move forward.


Hi,

What is the length set at?

Are the feed dogs visible at the needle plate?

What does the design look like in the pattern box?

Have you tried it on the straight stitch to see if is effected also?

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
