Question about Brother LS-1217 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The feed og does not to be going back and forth
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.
