Question about Sewing Machines
Hi there, I got an old model and the material is not moving thru the machine. I think it is the feed dog and want to know if I can fix it myself rather than sending it to the repair man???
SOURCE: My fabric won't advance.
Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

Is this a second hand machine ?
Is the stitch length selector set to > 1
Remove the needleplate and clean between teeth of feeddogs if it has been a while since this has been done, old lint will impede feeding.
Presser foot tension for general work needs to be set at 3, or the chromed button pushed down to the grooved line, depending on machine.
If new, call the dealer where you bought it and speak to them.

SOURCE: Feed dogs not feeding material
Make sure that you did not disengage the feed dogs by accident. You should have some type of button that allows you to control the feed dogs.

you sewing machine's feeddog is called a pressure dial it is located on the left side of your sewing machine at the top above & to the left of the take up lever, it's a little dial it will have numbers on it, & possible a d on it for darning, move the dial to a number like 3 to 5 & see if it will start stitching.
