I surfed around this site for various suggestions, finally took the bottom plate off and cleaned and oiled all the parts along that rod that goes right across (think it's a drive bar that rotates). Ran the machine without thread in for a few minutes to let the oil soak in. Machine now works fine.

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.

The feed dog of model 3230 is not working


check your top thread tension for the tight stitches
check your manual for the lever or switch for the feed dogs and see if there in the up position, if there not, then try the lever for the feed dogs & if there the lever doesn't work or there is not one, then the machine needs to be checked to see what's wrong with the feed dogs.

I just got an old Sears Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.17781. Everything is working fine except the reverse stitch. When the reverse button is pressed, the fabric doesn't move or sometimes movin


it sounds like the feed dogs & the reverse button need to be
checked at a repair shop,
to see why they are not responding to each other.

I've forgotten how to drop the feed dogs-can you help


There is a little lever on the back of the free arm at the bottom. Push the lever to the right and that will lower the feed dog.

Not feeding.


Check to see if the feed dogs are up, maybe you somehow clicked or switched a button, it happens to me some time when I take the bobbin out and put a new one in. I don't know your machine but some machines have the lever/knob for dropping the feed dogs in a strange location.

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Singer 3116 won't go into reverse


here is a download for your manual

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/SINGER/3116-_M

pg 32 talks about sewing in reverse sewing.
but doesn't give much on trouble shooting other than hold the lever while sewing. If that's not the case, then I think your feed dogs are the issue. check your feed dog drop. pg 9 part 12

If you think the reverse lever is sloppy, professional action should be taken, (take it in to be repaired under warranty?)

I hope this was helpful.

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233


Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.
