SOURCE: i have a very old viking - feed dog problem

The older 6XXX series are the best machines Viking ever made. But they have one flaw - if the button hole mechanism is not regularly serviced and used, it will eventually stick and the machine will only sew in reverse. This can also happen if you turn the knob backwards when in button hole mode.

I always tell my customers to make a few button holes every time they use the machine. This helps to keep the mechanism free and working between servicing.

Unfortunately the fix is not a DIY consumer project. It requires knowledge and expertise in disassembling the machine and re-aligning the parts. Expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $75 in addition to the regular servicing fee.

SOURCE: how do you raise the feed dog

I realize this is a year too late, but maybe someone else can benefit from this answer... I have a 3204B and the feed dog is to the right of the bobbin area. It has red lettering on the face and requires a little umph to raise it.

SOURCE: thread jamming, wont feed material, sewing in one place

Try moving the stitch length dial to 4 or 5 - check the manual. You may have it in the position for very close together sewing. I had to do a lot of trying with my 4795 to get it to work right. I found that very thin thread, polyester kind, broke at the needle after a couple of stitches. I switched to coats & clarks thread and a Singer ball point needle and it works fine. Be sure your needle is inserted with the flat top toward the back of the machine. Good luck!

The feed on my Singer 538 will not pull my fabric thru. Help appreciated.


Without fabric in your machine and with the presser foot raised, do the feed dogs move front->back? Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is the stitch length at a 10-12 stitch per inch setting so that the fabric actually moves (try increasing the stitch length to see if it makes a difference)?

Does your machine have a presser foot pressure adjustment? If you are sewing light weight fabric, the pressure may need to increased so there is more pressure applied by the presser foot to the feed dogs. You can also try adding a strip of tear-away or wash-away stabilizer to the underside of the fabric as you stitch so the feed dogs have something to grip.

Are the tips of the feed dogs rounded? Could be worn and need replacement.

If the feed dogs are not moving, how long has it been since the machine was cleaned and oiled?

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

If the feed dogs remain below the needle plate, and the feed dog lever does not activate them, then perhaps something is disconnected in the feed dog mechanism. The feed dogs should rise when stitching begins.

I have a Necchi 537FA and I want to know what the knob (on the right hand side) with the dot and knit symbol does. This knob is the last one on the right hand side. Thanks in advance for the help.


I suspect the knob on the lower right hand side is the feed dog knob. The "knit" symbol is for the feed dog. One setting drops the feed dogs so you can move the fabric yourself, ie free motion quilting. The other setting raises the feed dogs so the machine will feed the fabric for you.

I have been having trouble getting fabric to move steadily through my Necchi 535FA, perhaps someone can help?


the problem may only be with the feed dogs,, they feed the fabric thru so the needle can sew it.. if the problem persists the feed dogs need to be checked.

On Model #535 FA The feed dogs do not come up high enough to advance the fabric forward. Is there an adjustment to raise the feed dogs ? ( Necchi sewing machine )


If you change the number of your stitch length it will automatically adjust the feed dogs. If it is still a problem then you will need it adjusted. Insure that your pressure foot is placing enough pressure that causes the feed dogs to pull the material forward. To adjust the feed dogs there are different ways to be adjusted. I wouldn't suggest you try to adjust the height of the feed dogs.

Feet not feeding and thread bunching up


the presser foot or what ever foot your sewing with does not feed the
fabric,, the feed dogs in the needle plate are what moves the fabric
to be sewed, the feet only hold the fabric against feed dog so the
machine can use the needle to sew the fabric.
if the fabric is not moving then the feed dogs have to be checked
can you see the feed dogs in the needle plate area are the up or
down?
do you have a manual for the machine?
a manual help to know where the feed dog lever is, I'm sending
you a link for a manual for the machine, so you can look for the feed
dog lever, if the feed dogs are up then there is something wrong
with the feed dogs & they need to be checked.
but if the feed dogs are down then look in the manual & see where
the feed dog lever is & put it in the up position & see if that brings
the feed dogs up to the sewing position, if the feed dogs do not
come up then the feed dogs need to be checked.

Will not feed the material through


Be certain the presser foot lifter handle is down so that it holds the fabric from the top. Then make sure the feed dogs (the little toothy looking things under the presser foot) are up or engaged. Often we'll accidentally knock the adjustment button/lever and the feed dogs go down into the machine and will not come up to provide the pulling action to feed the fabric through. Make sure the mechanics inside the machine are clean and free of dust. And if you see what seems to be a piece of felt around the feed dogs, that is actually lint and prevents the fabric from moving through easily. Use the brush that came with the machine to clean the feed dogs. Hope this helps and happy stitching!

I own a Necchi model 535f......I have had it cleaned and oiled in the last 4 years....I can't get my fabric to feed through my machine


The feed dog & the presser foot have to work together to feed the fabric thru the machine
The feed dog should be seen when you look at the needle plate, if not the feed dog setting should be checked--the feed dog lever may be to the right of the bobbin area
Open the light bulb door also called the Lamp Cover door or Face Plate,, there should be a knob at the top round or star shaped,, that adjusts the needle bar that puts pressure on the presser foot,, it may have numbers or letters, mine is a star shape & has numbers on it & is set between the 2-3
Adjust it a little at a time & then sew to see which setting is best for your machine

My necchi mod.910 i cannot get the machine to do zigzag stitch, and straight stitching is a problem - i have to pull the material in order for it to move


The Necchi machine has a lever in the bobbin area that lets you move the feed dogs up and down. If you accidentally moved that, the feed dogs are in the down position and won't feed the fabric forward. Make s ure you can feel the feed dogs slightly above the plate. If they aren't move the lever until they do. :)

Why would my Singer 6235 not feed the fabic:


h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.
