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

The little Teeth/feeder under the foot doesn't push the fabric out. The fabric doesn't move


check where the direction button/lever is
it controls the feed mechanism and if it is in the middle the teeth will just go up and down
set it one way and it moves forward and set the other way will go in reverse
it is graduated to provide a stitch length ( number of stitches per 1")

I have a Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression. I am free motion quilting and the bobbin thread keeps hanging up. Any suggestions?


1. The top loading bobbin cases have small brackets to keep them from turning or moving up or down.
2. Adjust brackets with small screwdriver. Allow enough room for thread to flow through.
3. Rotate hand wheel both directions to make sure the bobbin case doesn't move around. Also, watch the thread to see if it is flowing across the top of the bobbin case.
4. You may need to slow down movement of your "free motion". Also, make sure you are using the right pressure foot.

The sewing teeth were down for quilting, I cant make them come up again for sewing, wheel turns but teeth dont move, any suggestions?


Look at the presser foot and imagine they are at the center of a clock. Now look at 4:00. There is a horizontal wheel (dial) on the free arm that needs turning.

The feed teeth are lowered when you turn the dial on the front of the free arm to the left . Turn the dial to the right if you wish to raise the feed teeth. The feed teeth will raise as you begin to sew.

Look at #12 on page 2 here: http://new.husqvarnaviking.com/sitefiles/clientsite/57/57c874e2-c4de-4acc-a703-3d47b01f941b.pdf

I have lost the instruction manual. Where can I buy a replacement.


Go to your machines web site, most reputable makers will allow you to download for free. You will need the: MAKE(brand) MODEL NO AND YOU MIGHT ALSO NEED
THE SERIAL NO

I put on the 1/4 inch quilting foot and the machine will not hold the settings, feed: 2 to 2.5 and stitch width 0


This sounds like a stepper motor problem. When you say it will not hold the settings do the feed teeth stop moving? Your feed teeth should be 1mm above the needle plate at the highest setting. Is that working for you?

My presser foot "handle" is stuck on my Pfaff Creative 7550, I can't move it to use my machine. I don't see anything wrong, any suggestions?


Yikes! I bet that since it has sat for so long that you have some corrosion not allowing the foot bar to be moved.

The teeth do not pull fabric thru, the teeth move only back/ forth. Is there an adjustment or part to replace, Jesse thanks.


I have limited knowledge but could the feed dogs be in the lower position? If so there should be a lever or slide button to raise them.

I have an Emerald 116 Husqvarna/Viking sewing machine and the feeder teeth have simply stopped feeding. It worked fine the last time I used it a couple of months ago and it hasn't been moved or disturbed...


HOW TO FIX YOUR FEEDER TEETH (DOG TEETH) ON EMERALD 116/118/120 IF THEY STOP WORKING....

So this is just a temporary solution to this problem... after reading through the user's guide (which really needs to be updated to have more troubleshooting suggestions), and basically taking apart various parts of the machine, I found a temporary solution.

1. Unscrew the Face Place (where the needle is attached to. #9 in User Guide Overview) There is only one screw on the side right underneath the Pressure Foot Pressure Dial (#8 in User Guide Overview). Taking off the Face Place gives you room to use a screwdriver for step 2...

2. Unscrew the Needle Plate (#12 in User Guide Overview), and take out the Bobbin holder (black). Slide the lever for the Feed Teeth to the raised position, and with your forefinger pop up the Feed Teeth (underneath the needle) to the raised position. You will here a click... and you are set to go. Reassembly your machine and get back to sewing!
