Why is My fabric is not feeding through the pressure foot


the feed dogs are what move the fabric under the presser foot so the needle can sew. check your instruction manual and see where the lever is that operates the feed dogs. if the lever is up then the feed dogs will feed the fabric, if the lever is down, then the fabric will stay in place. if the lever is up and the feed dogs are not working, then it's time to have them checked.

also could be a problem with the feed dogs, look in the manual
and see where the feed dog lever is and check to see if it's in the
up position, if the feeddogs are in the up position then the feeddogs need to be checked to see if they need to be adjusted.

Feet not feeding and thread bunching up


the presser foot or what ever foot your sewing with does not feed the
fabric,, the feed dogs in the needle plate are what moves the fabric
to be sewed, the feet only hold the fabric against feed dog so the
machine can use the needle to sew the fabric.
if the fabric is not moving then the feed dogs have to be checked
can you see the feed dogs in the needle plate area are the up or
down?
do you have a manual for the machine?
a manual help to know where the feed dog lever is, I'm sending
you a link for a manual for the machine, so you can look for the feed
dog lever, if the feed dogs are up then there is something wrong
with the feed dogs & they need to be checked.
but if the feed dogs are down then look in the manual & see where
the feed dog lever is & put it in the up position & see if that brings
the feed dogs up to the sewing position, if the feed dogs do not
come up then the feed dogs need to be checked.

The pressure foot handle is loose and my foot won't go down what's wrong


Grasp the presser foot bar and pull it down. It is likely that the loose bar has jumped off of the cam on the lever. you'll need to figure out how to get in there and tighten it or replace a broken lever.

Good luck.

My fabric dosnt move foward or back wards with the petal or manually ..


if the fabric won't move then there is something wrong with the
feed dogs, check in the needle plate to see if you can see the feed
dogs. you should be able to see them & touch them with your finger
since they are not moving the fabric it would be a good idea to
have the machine checked
I'm putting a link for a free manual for the machine, you can check
in the manual to see if it show where the feed dog lever is on the
machine, if it doesn't show a lever, or the lever is not responding to
movement then the machine needs to be checked to see what's
wrong.

Presser foot on bernina 180 won't go all the way down


Could be a number of things ... does the foot-lift lever go all the way down when you lower the foot and is it unusually 'floppy' when you lower it. There is a small spring inside that should keep tension on the lever and these can ping off if you inadvertently let the foot drop under its own pressure instead of letting it down slowly onto the fabric (they're a nightmare to put back, too !) ... if it has come off, it may be jammed in the foot lifter mechanism. It's also possible that the foot lifter has shifted on the foot bar, in which case it really needs to be looked-at by a qualified Bernina service agent. When raised, there should be a gap of 7.5mm between the bottom of the foot and the top of the stitch plate - if much more than this, it indicates that the adjuster has shifted and you'll need to get it looked-at professionally.

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

My fabric wasn't moving so I lowered the feed dogs and now I cannot raise them. The button in the back of the machine moves both ways but the feed dogs are not moving. They are staying in the down...


Hello

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.

Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.

Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.

Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.

Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.

After tangle in thread and jamb, feed dogs do not rise high enough to move fabric with lever in correct position. How do I adjust for proper rise?


Have you moved the lever shown on page 12 or 13 in your manual? I looked at your manual at www.singerco.com and it showed a lever in the rear of your machine to move. If, you misplaced your manual, download one for free from the Singer site.
