Depending on the brand of sewing machine you have, make sure it's not in the darn mode,, make sure the presser foot is against the fabric so the feed dogs can pull it thru,,if the presser foot is against the fabric correctly then the feed dogs may need to be check to see if they need a adjustment or replacing

SOURCE: Feed dogs not feeding material

Make sure that you did not disengage the feed dogs by accident. You should have some type of button that allows you to control the feed dogs.

My machine is not feeding the material through by my feed dog and t it want let it sew properly


Is it an older mechanical? If so, probably needs a good cleaning and oiling. The old oil has turned to goo and is sticking moving parts together.

Brother CS6000i with setting 00 for straight line stitch is making a left curve stitches instead going straight.


***Your feed dog under the pressure foot seems to be pulling on one side a little harder which indicates wear. It is likely to solve the problem by replacing the feed dog.
***Before you do this try to lower the pressure on the pressure foot. If the material you are sewing is thick it will have an effect on the pull of the feed dogs. The material you are sewing that you sent appears to be jeans material. It looks like it is thick and somewhat slippery.

How do I stop my needle from breaking and how to I see to it that the machine is self feeding the material forward instead of me having to pull it towards me to get the stitches into the material?


The needle may be bent, but surely the material should feed away from you not towards? Is the bobbin in correctly? If you have inadvertently left the feed dogs down the material will not be gripped and stay in the same place instead of moving. Check.

The material will not advance in my Husqvarna Viking 775.


The first thing to observe is if the feed teeth are coming up above the needle plate. Remove the presser foot and unthread the needle, then rotate the handwheel (always towards you, never away from you) and check to see if the teeth come above the plate. The button next to the on and off switch drops the feed teeth, so make sure it is in the up position. Pushing on it when its down makes it pop up and then after the machine makes one revolution the feed teeth pop up for normal sewing. Also look on the left side of the machine and you'll notice a dial, that dial should be on 6 for normal sewing. If everything I've covered so far is correct, the dial is on 6, the teeth do come up above the needle plate and your plate is correctly on the machine and you still don't have feeding it's more than likely a computer problem and a service to your tech is in order.

Not feeding


Hi, most likely you don't have enough presser foot pressure. Adjust accordingly. Are the feedogs up and not in darning mode?

Feed dogs not feeding the material


Is this a second hand machine ?

Is the stitch length selector set to > 1
Remove the needleplate and clean between teeth of feeddogs if it has been a while since this has been done, old lint will impede feeding.
Presser foot tension for general work needs to be set at 3, or the chromed button pushed down to the grooved line, depending on machine.
If new, call the dealer where you bought it and speak to them.
