Check that the feed dogs are actually moving under the presser foot and that they are rising above the needle plate to grab the fabric.

SOURCE: won't sew, the fabric stays in one spot

is the problem the fabric is not moving forward but staying in one spot? which would mean the feeddogs need to be checked to see what position there in --up for sewing---down for darning
or the thread is not feeding into the machine?

I have a Brother PE770. It is running just fine, but leaving little brown (looks like oil) spot on top of the fabric. They wash out easily enough, but how do I fix this?


You need to figure out exactly what is causing the brown spots. If it is, in fact, old oil, you may want to moisten a soft piece of fabric with rubbing alcohol and clean the presser foot bar and needle bar as the oil could be running down and staining the fabric.

I have an Elna 2730. the feed dog is not transporting the fabric anymore and the needle just keeps stitching in the same place. is it broken or just needs adjusting?


if you have a manual, look to see where the feed dogs are, if the lever for the feed dogs is in the up position then the machine will sew a straigh stitch
if the feed dog lever is in the down position then it will only stay in one spot,
if you try to push the lever up and it will not stay or stays and will not sew then the feed dogs need to be checked

Serger won't chain off a stitch. Stitches won't chain and hold to fabric. Added new needle, rethreaded whole machine. Stitches won't connect to fabric or make a chain.


is it possible that the needles are in backwards?
it's very possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop to be retimed

the feed dogs in the needle plate area are what moves the fabric while the presser foot hold the fabric
if the feed dogs are not up, check to see what position are in,,they should be in the bobbin area

I have a singer simple sewing machine and when i try and sew, the fabric doesnt move. it doesnt feed through. shouldnt the fabric move without help? and even with help, it just stays in one spot


Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)

Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)
