My feed dogs will not pull my material through.


Check to be sure you have not inadvertently dropped the feed dogs on your machine. Dropped feed dogs are used for 'darning' or 'free motion quilting.' Below is info from Troubleshooting Manual:

Fabric does not feed through the machine
The feed dogs are lowered. Use the feed dog position switch to raise the feed dogs. 81
The stitches are too close together. Lengthen the stitch length. 42
The wrong presser foot was used. Attach the correct presser foot. 179
The needle is bent or blunt. Replace the needle with a new one. 34
The thread is tangled. Use scissors, etc., to cut the tangled thread and remove it from the race, etc.

My needle arm is stuck down


The needle may be tangled with thread in the bobbin case. Can you remove or lift up on the feed plate? I have had a tangled thread web hold mine down before. I used tweezers and small scissors to cut the thread up and pull it out.

My brother cs 8072 stitch length not working.


Are the feed dogs fully up and clean?
With the unthreaded machine transport a piece of paper with the feed dogs?
Is there a presser foot pressure adjustment? -- if so, it may need tweaking.
Do you have a tangle of thread under the needle plate (= throat plate) or hook and bobbin case area?
Do you have the stitch length set to greater than 0?

Thread continues to tangle on Ellure Plus even after changing out needle, bobbin, etc. Noticed that a small 'bar' was across front of feed dogs-pushed this back to the left but problem contin


Your post made me laugh with the funny bone remark. :) I'm glad you found and posted a solution to your own problem. Bravo!

Happy sewing.

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!


In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.

The hand wheel won't move. i tried to see if the feed dog was at fault and moved the lever back and forth and now the feed dog is stuck in the down position - and the hand wheel won't move


Open the throat plate and bobbin area to see if thread has tangled there. Snip and remove thread with tweezers - do not yank or **** and tangles out of the machine.

Brother 8500D sewing/emb machine - upper thread stops feeding


If the thread is hanging up at the spool - this could be the way it was manufactured, a nick in the spool end or the thread is unwinding too fast, puddling and wrapping around the spool pin.

Keep the bobbin case and surrounding area clean and free of thread tangles and snips. Thread tangles in this area can cause the machine to stop.

When the presser foot is down on any sewing machine, the tension closes and you cannot manually pull the thread through.

Sulky and C & C black tends to fray more than other brands of thread.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to be serviced by a professional.

Bobbin tangles on Brother xr 65


This was happening to me too, I reversed the bobbin feeds and it has not tangled since then. I was orignally feeding the bobbin from the left side and now i feed the thread from the right. It works great this way.
