Teeth do not move material forward when sewing

I'm having an issue w/my daughter-in-laws sewing machine. It will operate but the teeth do not move the material - so it sews over and over in the same spot. Any solutions?

The jagged teeth on sewing plate are not moving to move the material forward. U will have to look under the machine to check out the mechanism that is supposed to move them and find the part that is the cause of no transmission of power to the teeth assembly.

How do I stop my needle from breaking and how to I see to it that the machine is self feeding the material forward instead of me having to pull it towards me to get the stitches into the material?


The needle may be bent, but surely the material should feed away from you not towards? Is the bobbin in correctly? If you have inadvertently left the feed dogs down the material will not be gripped and stay in the same place instead of moving. Check.

How can I get the material to move forward when machine operating?


the feed dogs are not working, they hold the fabric against the
presser foot, so the fabric is moved forward,they are in the needle
plate, they should be seen & felt in the center of the needle plate.

How do i get the teeth to come up to move the material


There is a hidden lever that disables the feet from raising. Remove the extension table (http://sewandserge.com/machimages/MechanicalSewDia2.jpg) and and you'll see a lever recessed into to the left hand edge of the table. Move lever towards operator so it extends and feet will re-enable.

Very old Necchi sewing machine - sews in place


sounds like the feed dogs may be down or not working. Watch to see if the little teeth are moving under the pressure foot when you stitch( try to run unthreaded and with foot up no fabricto check) May be a button to turn up the feed dogs.

Material will not feed across pressure plate of my new home model sx 2122 sewing machine


This machine has a pressure regulator on the left side.You should look to see that it is not loosened. When you lift up on the presser foot it should have resistance.
Then look at the feed dogs to see that they are moving, Set the stitch length at 4 and turn the hand wheel. The teeth should move towards the back of the machine. They should also be slightly above the needle plate as they go back and below the surface of the plate as they come forward.
If they don't rise above the plate , remove the needle plate and clean between the slots of the teeth.
