What is your stitch length set at? how high is your tension set? Try to set it between 3&4 then check. Your manual tells you how to do all of this. Go to Brother at www.brother-usa.com and download your manual for free. You can enlarge the diagrams and really see it up close. Good luck, if all else fails, call Brother at 1-877-276-8437

How do I stretch sew on this machine the stitch is either too tight or looping and what do I put the feed balance dial on + or - to sew this stretchy fabric


IF YOU HAVE A ZIG ZAG STITCH, SET THIS ON A LONG NARROW LENGTH AND USE THIS FOR STRETCHY FABRICS. ALSO USE A NEEDLE FOR STRETCH FABRICS OR A BALL POINT NEEDLE, IF YOU HAVE ONE, AS THIS IS BEST.

The feed dog of model 3230 is not working


check your top thread tension for the tight stitches
check your manual for the lever or switch for the feed dogs and see if there in the up position, if there not, then try the lever for the feed dogs & if there the lever doesn't work or there is not one, then the machine needs to be checked to see what's wrong with the feed dogs.

My new janome 2212 isn't feeding my fabric


ok. Never pull fabric, it will bend the needle and cause you even more problem. So stop doing that.

Look in your manual for where the feed dog switch is. It might be under the "darning" area.

Good luck

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?


when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

My machine is not pulling the fabric with the feeddogs. i have to pull the fabric from the back. i have looked in the book i got with the machine but don't see any thing on this


Have you lowered the feed dogs either to do free motion embroidery or accidentally?

it is sometimes a slide on the front of the base of the machine but check your manual and see if this has been activated. If so return it to the usual setting, then put fabric under and lower the pressure foot, then do a couple of stitches. The feed dogs should reengage as the machine goes through a stitch sequence.

If this isn't the problem, then just check that its not in some special stitch sequence for buttonholing with satin stitching. Select a regular straight stitch, and length of 2.5 and see if this corrects the problem.

Failing all the above, it may require a trip to the shop for a service.

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

The top thread is really loopy on the underside of the fabric, sometimes it misses a stitch, sometimes, the upper thread breaks, and it often gets so tangled underneath that the machine won't feed.


Your tension is way too loose on top or too tight on the bobbin. Try adjusting the top tension one number at a time until you get it right. (Only adjust the bobbin tension as a last resort). Also you could have different thickness of thread in the bobbin than on the top or are sewing a very heavy fabric. Try adjusting the tension with same thread in both bobbin and top and use a normal weight fabric until you find the right tension to get you back to a normal stitch before going to a heavier fabric or thread.

I am new at sewing, my machine is sewing small stitches and then larger stitches, I need it to just sew small sitches


Check to make sure the stitch length gauge isn't loose allowing it to jump between longer & shorter stitches, or that it isn't set on variable stitching. Something that could create this too is if you're holding the fabric too tightly so that the fabric feed doesn't pull the fabric through smoothly & easily - allow the machine to pull the fabric through on it's own and control the speed with your footfeed, not your hands. Hope this helps! Have a good time!

Stretch fabric is made for using the differential feed on your machine, sergers love stretchy things. Try widening the stitch you are using and turn your differential feed down one notch to allow the machine to get a good grip on the fabric, you may need to bump the differential feed up more if it still doesn't stitch nice, keep trying on a piece of scrap fabric of the same as you are using until you are happy with the stitch.Another solution is to put some lightweight tissue paper under the seams and then tear it off after you have sewn the seams, this works but will dull your blades over time.
