Check to make shure your machine is not set to do a button hole. If thats not the problem the reverse button may be sticking. If so loosen up with wd-40.

My Steelmaker SW A 2000, recently acquired, sewed fine when I got it home, now it won't feed the material through so it can sew properly.


That sounds like a problem with the height of the feed dogs. Can you see them raise and lower? My advice with any newly acquired sewing machine is to have it cleaned, lubricated, serviced and the timing checked.

Can't drop the feed dogs on my Bernina 1260


Could it be that the feed dog mechanism has not been oiled for a long time? I have a 930 and perform frequent all-over oiling including the feed dog mechanism (all-over refers to a couple drops of good quality sewing machine oil every place where metal rubs on metal). To get them working faster, try directing hot air from hairdryer into the internal mechanics to loosen things.

I have a White model 3900N. Why does it only sew in reverse?


Hello Jan, I have run into this problem many times. The reason your machine only sews in reverse is caused by old sticky oil at the feed dog pivots. Oil your machine with only high quality sewing machine oil. Pay close attention to the two pivots under your machine where the feed dogs attach to cross journals. Oil them several times and work the reversing lever until the feed dogs move freely and easily. It will sew in reverse if you oil the pivots. Good luck.

Reverse button broken


the reverse button that makes the machine sew in reverse is not the feed dog, the feed dog is in the needle plate area. under the needle
when the reverse button is broken the machine must be taken apart and another put in it's place, at a sewing machine repair shop.

I have a husgvarna Designer1and the reverse botton is not lighting up and is not going in reverse


The reverse button doesn't light up until the feed dogs reverse their rotation (feed rearward). The problem probably relates to the drive thats shifts the linkage to reverse the feed dogs (although it could be the linkage itself is out of wack). In any case, I doubt that you are doing anything wrong or that this is something you can fix yourself.

Hi, have tried to use buttonhole feature on singer 4423. Dog feed teeth have dropped - won't come back up and the material isn't feeding though. Any help greatly appreciated.


Re: Reverse feed dogs on Singer 4423 Remove extension table so you can see switch on BACK of machine @ left side. Flip switch to raise feed dogs up. If machine actually sewing in reverse - check n Buttonhole adjustment. Reset it (located bottom right side machine) Jimmy

Feed Dog


Is it in the button hole setting? If so that could explain it.

Singer model ce100 does not sew with pedal


Check your feed dogs. On the front, left at the bottom is a manaul switch. If you push it to the right it drops the feed dogs, for embroidery and when you push it left it lift the feed dogs. Just remember to turn the handwheel towards you after switching it to the left, until you hear a clicking sound and the feed dogs engage. Hope this solves your problem.
