Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs up in order for the fabric to move when I start sewing. Is there a switch or knob to change the feed dogs?
The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.

You sewing machine's feeddog is called a pressure dial it is located on the left side of your sewing machine at the top above & to the left of the take up lever, it's a little dial it will have numbers on it, & possible a d on it for darning, move the dial to a number like 3 to 5 & see if it will start stitching.

Debbi, I have tried to move the dial and it will still not move the material through to sew on its own, its like it is stuck in one spot, if we keep it set on 0, it will move the material along but it will skip. If we set it any higher, it will sew in one spot and not move the material along to sew????
