Check to see if the feed dogs are dropped(darning mode), or lift the needleplate and clean out lint or debris stuck in feed dogs. when the needle is in the highest position the feed dogs should be about 1mm above the needle plate.

How do I get material to feed

I suggest some trouble shooting. Are feed dogs in the right position? Is the thread or fabric hung in the faceplate? Have you forgot to tighten the inner knob on the hand wheel after winding a bobbin? I hope this helps.

White model 445 material won't feed?????

Hi Jason. I wonder if you have your feed dogs lowered. It's near the bobbin area.

Here's a pdf of your manual. It talks about "drop feed" on book page 19

Good luck

Material won't feed through on kenmore 17600 sewing machine

Take out the material, take off the foot and needle. Stick your finger on the feed dogs and hand turn the hand wheel like sewing. Does the feed dog come slightly above the surface of the needle plate? If it does.... tighten the presser foot tension.

If it doesn't locate the switch that drops the feed dog. Make sure it's in up position.

If neither of those solutions work. Remove the needle plate and see if the feed dog or mechanism that runs it is broken

Good luck

Bobbin area will not work

There should be a spinning cover with a hook that fits over the bobbin. Normally, you just pull the bobbin thread out through the swinging/sliding plate hole. Turn the machine by hand toward you (at the top) until the needle dives into and comes back with both threads. Separate the threads and assuming that the thread tension above the needle is set correctly, feed a piece of material in to see if it sews correctly. The tension is set so that the thread is even on both sides of the material. Let the machine pull the material through at it's own pace, your function is to guide the material.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread

completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.

I've lost my manual and video need threading info

I had the same problem. I found if you turn the wheel three times and then put in material, it will work fine. If you try to run a long thread to see if it works, the lower looper will break. Try it with material and it will work fine.
