Singer touch tronic 2000 feed dog will not advance fabric

Confirm the feed dogs are raised. Make sure the feed dog teeth, area under the needle plate and the bobbin area are clean of any debris, thread, or buildup. Some machines also have a presser foot pressure adjustment that increases the pressure the presser foot applies to the feed dogs. The feed dogs could be worn (never run the sewing machine without fabric between the presser foot & feed dogs).

Or, the machine has not had a thorough cleaning and oiling recently and the feed dogs are sticking from old oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

I have a athena 2000 electronic and the tension dial does not move the feeding dogs so to be able to adjust the tension how can I fix it

The tension has nothing to do with the feed dogs. All the feed dogs is move to pull the fabric through the machine. Tension regulates the amount of tension applied to the thread as it stitches.
