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.

I cant get the material feeder to come up so that the material can slide


Make sure feed dogs (teeth in needle plate beneath needle) are showing. Flip switch to UP position to "feed" fabric. Sometimes control fir this located on back of machine lower left side and " hidden" by your extension table, so remove that table and you'll find the switch! Jimmy

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.

I agree about the needle, took me forever to learn that one. I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine that would not pick up the bobbin thread every time I tried it after having it for a while. I would go to my other machine and use it. Then my daughter in law put in a new needle and it worked perfect until I tried to stitch a different type of material. It was then it clicked and I started researching needles for machines. You have to use the correct size needle for the material you are sewing or it will not work right. Also if your needle is dull or bent you will also have problems. Here is a site that may be helpful http://www.taunton.com/threads/pages/t00185.asp You can find more info by searching for "sewing machine needle information" Hope this helps.
Happy Sewer
