Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually move the fabric, ie #2 or higher. Are the feed dogs in the raised position or have they been dropped for darning?

If it's an older mechanical machine, it may need a very thorough cleaning and Oiling. Old oil will cause the machine parts to seize.

Check that the stitch length is set high enough that the feed dogs will actually advance the fabric. Setting the stitch length too low will cause the machine to basically sew in place.

Also, check that the feed dogs have not been "dropped" to allow darning or free motion quilting. Dropping the feed dogs lowers them so they will not rise above the needleplate and will not grip nor move the fabric.

If your machine is mechanical (not computerized), it may need a good cleaning and oiling. If the old oil has solidified, it could be preventing the feed dogs from moving like they should.

These machines are not user serviceable, no parts will be available to the general public. Have a trained service technician give you an estimate for repairs.

My Singer 9420 is not advancing the fabric. The feed dogs move without fabric?


Are you sure the feed dogs have not been accidently lowered? They will still move when lowered but not feed the fabric.

Singer Sewing Machine model #2638 Does not feed fabric


Here is a link to page 22 of the manual. It shows you where to flip the lever to raise the feed dogs. If your feed dogs are not grabbing fabric your feed dogs are lowered.

I have a singer 3343c machine, when sewing the fabric foot does not move, the fabric while the machine is sewing.


the presser foot only holds the fabric against the feed dogs in the needle plate area

check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position

if not there should be a nob in the feed dog area to move them up & down

on some models when you remove the extension table the nob is at the back

I have a singer model #2932 It will not advance the fabric, just keeps sewing in the same place


I've been sewing since I was six (with mom's help), but all sewing machines are basically the same. The feed dog, which is what advances the fabric is most likely not moving. If you look at the area just under the presser foot & needle you'll see little "teeth". This is the feed dog. Take the thread out of the needle and run the machine without any fabric. Watch those teeth. They should rise & lower into the base. If they don't move when the foot pedal is pressed, then that is your problem and you'll need to take it to a repair shop. Good luck.

Why would my Singer 6235 not feed the fabic:


h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.
