Check to make sure the sewing machine is not in the darn position, if it is in the position for sewing, then the feed dogs may need a adjustment or may need replacing, having the machine checked would be a good idea

Should be on the right side in a recessed portion just above the bottom of the machine. You can see it here without paying for the manual: http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Singer_Manuals/Singer_1000&UP/6233_Instruction_Manual.htm

The Singer 6233 was one of the models that briefly were made using air-powered foot controls. So you aren't looking for a traditional electrical connection. Instead, your pedal cord's female end will connect onto a black male nipple, that sticks out on the right side of the machine (the side with the handwheel). Just push it on until it feels snug.

Try putting tearaway stabilizer or tissue paper under your material and see if it helps.

SOURCE: The Presser Bar on my Singer 66 does not move up or down when I use the Presser Bar Lever. It seems to be stuck solid and therefore it will not lower onto the feed dogs to enable me to sew. The Presse

it's possible that the presser bar could be bent or damaged, the only way to know what is exactly wrong would be to take it to a sewing machine repair shop

Even on the raised setting, the feed dogs won't move the thinnest summer weight fabric. Does anyone know how to fix this problem on the Singer Model #7426?


Could be the presser foot is not applying enough pressure to the feed dogs. Check your owner manual for instructions on increasing the presser foot pressure. Could also be that the feed dog height needs to be adjusted or their teeth are worn (do not run the machine without fabric between the presser foot and feed dogs).

Singer touch tronic 2000 feed dog will not advance fabric


Confirm the feed dogs are raised. Make sure the feed dog teeth, area under the needle plate and the bobbin area are clean of any debris, thread, or buildup. Some machines also have a presser foot pressure adjustment that increases the pressure the presser foot applies to the feed dogs. The feed dogs could be worn (never run the sewing machine without fabric between the presser foot & feed dogs).

Or, the machine has not had a thorough cleaning and oiling recently and the feed dogs are sticking from old oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Hi there. I have a singer 507 machine which was sewing fine until I changed thread in bobbin and now the feeder teeth are not moving to feed thE fabric thru, not sure what I may have done - Help!


the bobbin has nothing to do with the feed teeth
however it is possible that at some point you moved the forward /reverse knob lever to middle where the teeth will not move

Singer Sewing Machine model #2638 Does not feed fabric


Here is a link to page 22 of the manual. It shows you where to flip the lever to raise the feed dogs. If your feed dogs are not grabbing fabric your feed dogs are lowered.

I have a Singer Stylist 543. The feed is not


If you have taken the needle plate off recently make sure you have put it one correctly, failing that you need to get underneath the teeth by taking the machine bottom off and you will see a large screw that you can adjust

Model 6233 Singer material will not feed needle goes up and down


Is the feed dog pushed to the up position? How about selecting a stitch length? I have a feeling watching the dvd and instruction manual will do wonders for you, If you lost your manual, go online to www.singerco.com and download one for free,
