Be sure the presser foot is attached properly. Sounds like you may be using a walking foot. They are pretty tricky to install correctly, so make sure you are following the instructions. Perhaps the following link will help:

1. Whatever presser foot you use it has a specific job it is made for. It is possible the foot you are using is for free arm.
2. Try to find out what the foot is made for. Look at pictures over the internet to help you out.
3. Mostly wide presser feet are used to pull the material through.
4. Sometimes you may need to increase or decrease the pressure on the feet depending on the material.

Check the feed direction for the bottom section
check that the top foot is actually coming down onto the bottom foot
adjust if not or is the foot the correct one

Not feeding material.


Tension generally does not affect the feed unless it is way too tight. Most reasons for fabric not advancing under the presser foot is that the feed dogs have been dropped for darning. If the feed dogs are operating properly, as the handwheel turns the feed dogs should rise above the plate, move toward the back of the machine pulling the fabric, drop down, come forward and rise again.

The other possibility is that the presser foot pressure has been released so the presser foot is not holding the fabric down on the feed dogs. Some machines have a spring-loaded knob on the top of the machine, a dial, or something to adjust the amount of pressure the foot applies. Consult your owner's manual.

Feeder not moving


knotted up thread under the material indicates that the needle thread tension is incorrect ( needs tightening)
once you have that correct the material, will feed normally
use scrap when adjusting and the correct tension is when the top and bottom threads meet at the join ( middle -center )of the materials being sewn

Brother ps 33 material will not feed through machine


Are the feed dogs up and working?

Is the presser foot down?

There should be an adjustment somewhere on the top of the sewing machine, above the presser foot where you can adjust the pressure of the presser foot - left for less and right for more.

Is the fabric under the presser foot when you begin sewing?

Simplicity Serger pro 432-- feed dogs will not pull material through. They do not come up high enough to catch the material.


The most common troubles with feeddogs not working properly is either lint trapped in between the feed teeth...remove the needleplate and clean out the lint which may look like felt in extreme cases. or... the presser foot tension is too low, in which case, increase tension...there will be a knob of some sort at the top of the machine directly above the Presser Foot Shaft. It is a remote possibility that the feeddog height needs adjusting ...it will have been a major trauma of a severe jam or tugging etc to cause this. As it would almost certainly result in other timings being affected and particularly in the case of a Serger/Overlocker, the added risk of breaking loopers (expensive), I would recommend a service by suitably qualified technician to restore all to optimum condition.

I have an 1130 bernina and love it! with all fabric types the top material is not moving along with the bottom material when sewing seams. the lighter fabrics are puckering and the seams are anywhere...


The 1130 does not have a consumer adjustable presser foot. Check to be sure you are using the correct presser foot .Some feet are slightly different in height which is how the pressure is regulated. If this is not your problem it will need to be seen by a technician.
