The mechanism inside the machine will not turn over / around. The balance wheel turns but nothing moves inside. The belt is perfect. Took lid off and looked inside, machine cleaned and oiled, lights work. This happened after I tried to sew some heavy fabric. Desperate!!!

SOURCE: Machine does not feed properly. It sewed fine for

Hello,
Here are a few solutions to check.

* Check your fabric to make sure it isn't caught on something.

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it's screwed tightly in place.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot as it may be too light or too heavy for your fabric.

* Check your feed dogs for lint. If your feed dogs are clogged with lint, they're not gripping your fabric properly. Remove your pressure foot and clean out any lint with an old toothbrush.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this function. They may have been inadvertently lowered.

* Check your stitch length regulator, If its set at “0” or a very small number, try switching to a longer stitch length.

* Change your needle, it may be damaged.

* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in place.

* Use a “Jean-a-ma-jig” or a “Hump-jumper”. If you've been trying to sew over a bump of fabric, such as a thick jean hem, try using this tool (your local fabric store should carry it). It keeps your pressure foot level as you sew over the bump and gives your feed dogs something to grip.

I hope this helps

Does it feed.the.material by itself.automatically or do you have to do it


machines feed automatically
the bottom feed is by a set of jaws that rise up and move back then down and repeat the process back or forward according too the sewing direction required
mostly if it is not progressing the stitch it is because the feed direction is close to neutral position or in the middle of forward /back

Every time I hit the start button to perform embroidery, the screen tells me to lower the feed dog - even though it's already down. Is there a way around this?


the sensor must not be working. I thought the 9000 lowered feed dogs automatically when embroidery option is choosen anyway. There is a manual as well as on screen drop feed dogs method for this machine

I have a Brother 98-Stitch Computerized Sewing & Embroidery Machine, SE270D. I dropped the feed dogs and now it wont come back up.


I dropped my feed dogs and when I pushed the button to bring them back up, it wouldn't work. I did discover that when you put the button back to the up position and start sewing, the dogs come back up automatically.

The feed dog will rise as soon as you turn the handwheel one time. Just put the fabric in it and sew. It will come up automatically as long as you have moved the lever to the correct position.
