Are the feed dogs in the down position? There should be a lever in front or in back of the needle area..you may have to remove the freearm to find it. Once you flip that switch, you have to turn the hand wheel towards you almost a full turn to make the feed dogs pop back up.

If they are up & not moving...then something is caught in them...a bit of lint or thread probably.

Brother CS6000i with setting 00 for straight line stitch is making a left curve stitches instead going straight.


***Your feed dog under the pressure foot seems to be pulling on one side a little harder which indicates wear. It is likely to solve the problem by replacing the feed dog.
***Before you do this try to lower the pressure on the pressure foot. If the material you are sewing is thick it will have an effect on the pull of the feed dogs. The material you are sewing that you sent appears to be jeans material. It looks like it is thick and somewhat slippery.

Manual for brother vx757 free please


A manual feed is used primarily in freehand embroidery, quilting, and shoe repair. With manual feed, the stitch length and direction is controlled entirely by the motion of the material being sewn. Frequently some form of hoop or stabilizing material is used with fabric to keep the material under proper tension and aid in moving it around. Most household machines can be set for manual feed by disengaging the drop feed dogs. Most industrial machines can not be used for manual feed without actually removing the feed dogs.

Feeds dogs are lowered even when in the up position


Check to see if there is a bunch of thread under the needle plate preventing the feed dogs from returning to run position.

This may mean having to take the needle plate off and really looking

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.

Feed Dog on Brother 270d stuck in up position


I finally figured this out. The feed dog switch in the back was not hitting anything when I moved it back and forth. There is a screw on the underside of the machine that I tightened. It seemed to do the trick. Thanks.
