Hi, I suspect there is no pressure on the presser foot. Check that.
Hope this is it.

Singer model no 9022 feeder feet does not move material thread bunges under material


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.

Pressure foot wont go fully down


The pressure foot is only made to push down on the material, not the feed dogs. If you put it too low it will destroy the feed dogs and the pressure foot as well as the material.
1. To adjust, lower the pressure of the pressure foot as much as you can.
2. Place a thick piece of material under the foot. Turn the hand wheel until the feed dogs are up.
3. The pressure foot rod has a screw that holds it into place. You will adjust the rod by moving it up and down until there is a small amount of pressure on the material. Tighten the screw and try your machine without a needle to see if the material will move. Now, try other thicknesses of material. The rod may need to be slightly adjusted a small amount to get it "just right".
4. PUT IN NEEDLE AND CHECK FOR ALIGNMENT TO THE HOLE. (DANGER IF NOT ALIGNED).

Feet won't feed the material.


Are you using a sewing machine? First have a look at the type of material you are using then see if you have an adjuster on the foot dog. My machine has 3 settings for thick, medium and slippery material. Sorry don't know all the terms as I have just started sewing. If that doesn't work it might be a good idea to take it in for a service.

Material will not feed


Check to make sure your dog feet are not down. If they are lowered the fabric will not move.

Material not moving through sewing machine.


Yours is an oldie (but goodie) mechanical machine. If it has not been given a thorough oiling with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil, then she probably needs some TLC. If the feed dogs are up and the stitch length is set to at least the midway point but the fabric is still not moving through the machine, it could be the feed dogs are seized because the old oil has dried and they are not moving like they should. Following the method below, your machine will be humming along in a day or so. Periodic attention will keep her humming.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Also, something to remember. When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot!

Janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog


I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.
