Feeder doesn't work on Brother PC 8200/8500 sewing machine

I have a Brother PC 8200. I had always used it for embroidery and I just tried to use it for sewing. The feeder doesn't move the material. It stays in the same position.

Look for a mechanical switch that engages the lower drive mechanism.

I had the same problem and eventually worked out that if I pressed the automatic trimmer (scissors) right away, it would engage the feed dogs.

Would a manual help?

Brother PC 8500 User Manual

Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is it a regular stitch presser foot or a darning foot? A darning foot is shorter in height so the fabric can be maneuvered without use of the feed dogs. Just some ideas. Could also be an embroidery setting that has not been deactivated.

That's a tough call, parts can be pretty high to fix a machine. Have looked around to price out a new embroidery machine, Janome makes some very nice one in that price range. I'd try ebay there is one which is missing the foot control and hoops for $250.00 just search Brother Pacesetter PC-8200 this may be the ticket you already have the foot control and hoops.

Best of luck

Cotton breaks on Brother Embroidery Galaxie 2100 machine


Try turning down your top tension setting a bit. If its at 4 or 5, i would turn it down to about 3 ish. Cotton thread is more brittle than polyester and rayon thread.

Hope that helps :)
