Singer Advance: Buttonhole getting stuck and not advancing fabric

make sure the buttonhole lever is pulled down
make sure to use the right needle for the fabric being sewed
make sure the to thead has not come off the thread take up lever
also could be a problem with the feed dogs, look in the manual
and see where the feed dog lever is and check to see if it's in the
up position, if the feeddogs are in the up position then the feeddogs need to be checked to see if they need to be adjusted.

Dog feeds not working

check the feeddog to see if there in the up position, you'll be able to see & feel the feeddog teeth with your fingers,, but if you can't feel them the check the feeddog knob or lever.
if the lever is in the up position & you can't move the lever or if you can move the lever up or down & the feeddogs don't move there position
then it's possible that there's something wrong with them & the machine will have to be serviced

The thread is knotting up under the switchplate then not moving at all. Just runs but getting huge clumps. Help

first question, when the needle is all the way up are the feeddogs above the needle plate? second, are both the upper and lower thread in there tensioners? Third do you have the feed set at a stitch length? Only things to look at, if the feeddogs are not above the plate when the needle is in its highest postion then it needs to go to your local dealer to be adjusted, if the thread is in the tensioners and the tensions look good back to the first but if they look bad, again take it to your local dealer. If the stitch length happened to get bumped and is at 0 then it just needs to be turned to a length.

How is presser foot adjusted ?

If your stitches are tiny more than likely the feeddogs are not working correctly. More often than not its because the pivot points for the feeddog mechanism inside are gummed up,dirty and oily and they need to be cleaned. Your machine is in need of service. Does not really have anything to do with presser foot pressure especially if you have tried adjusting that to no availe.
It needs servicing.

Remove the needleplate and clean out the lint from between the teeth of the is the most likely reason, the lint holds the feeddogs below where they need to engage fabric.

Check your Presser foot tension is at 3 then do a test.

If this is not sufficient the method of adjusting feeddogs is possible at home, tho perhaps not for those lacking some confidence in mechanical post back for detail if needed.

Feed dog & auto threader problems.

Remove the needle plate and clean the lint from between the teeth of feeddogs, also around and inside bobbin case.

The switch for the feeddogs is to raise (normal sewing) or lower (free motion) and if there is no difference, the accumulated lint will have made a felt pad between the teeth forcing the feeddogs to stay down and present with the problem you describe.

When things go a little "weird", the common instinct is OIL EVERYTHING............DON'T DO IT !!! ....this is rarely the solution on its own account, and can make the servicing a great deal longer as the excess must be removed........little oil regularly, not a bucketful every 5 years is a better approach.

Feed dog

It may need the feeddogs adjusted by a tech. We use a guage to measure the correct height. Even though visually it may look like they are moving ok they may be too low. You could use the top end of a needle and lay it alongside the feeddog at its highest point. It should be level. Also check the presser foot pressure. It may be set too high and not holding the fabric down. Good luck to you. Rick
