You might check your feed dogs, your operation manual will show you where they are & what position to put them in to sew

How do I raise the feed dogs


Make sure that your top and bobbin thread are the same and that the tension is set correctly. Then, be sure that the bobbin is put in correctly. If this happens when you are starting on an edge of your material, try putting a piece of material or even a piece of paper, like typing paper, under the edge of the material and sew a little beyond that and then onto your material. You can tear it off later. It gives stability to the edge of the material and should alleviate the problem. I hate when that happens! And, last but not least, be sure you are using the right needle. I love the ballpoint needles for most sewing projects.

White model 445 material won't feed?????


Hi Jason. I wonder if you have your feed dogs lowered. It's near the bobbin area.

Here's a pdf of your manual. It talks about "drop feed" on book page 19

Good luck

Machine won't feed material. I have to pull while sewing.


First of all stop pulling that will only bend your needle and cause further problems.

Check to make sure your feed dogs are engaged. There should be a switch somewhere around the sewing area front or back or perhaps under a flat bed attachment.

I've just bought a Pfaff 1471 and it has "locked-up"... the needle won't go up and down and the hand-wheel won't move. Help please! :)


Do you have a bunch of material and thread stuck in the feed dog? Sounds like. This will sometimes happen. I'm afraid the only thing you can do is carefully work with a seam ripper or small scissors to get it all out. Be careful working. You will damage this part of your fabric, but you can take the seam allowance in a small bit. You will probably have to remove fabric & thread from underneath, through the bobbin area, too.

Once you have all of this cleared, the needle and wheel will turn. I suggest you try and take the needle out of the shaft and try pulling it out of the fabric before you start your work, too. That way, you won't risk breaking it and have a piece fly off at you.

It's frustrating and will probably make you curse at the machine-it's happened to everyone who sews at one time or another, and will happen again, I'm afraid.

Have a janome master craft 3000, just bought it used yesterday. Was sewing fine then all of a sudden it would stop pushing the material through like the needle was dull or something. Now it's doing it...


First do a process of elemination. Unthread the machine, both top and bottom, take out the needle. Place a piece of fabric under the pressure foot, lower the pressure, and depress the foot control. Does the fabric feed? If it does, then put in a NEW needle, thread up the machine, and see what happens. A dull needle won't prevent the fabric from feeding. If the fabric does not feed with no thread, then you have a pressure foot pressure problem, or a feed dog height problem, or a feed step motor problem, or possibly a board problem. If it only has a problem when you thread it up, then maybe you have a burr on the needle plate and the thread is hanging up on it and preventing the fabric from feeding. Check for all of these and if you still need assistance respond back.

My Bernina 2000D wasn't sewing properly so I took it in for a service. Apparently the plate was cracked & it was replaced with a new one. However, it is still not sewing properly,the material is...


Have it fixed under warranty of the service you had done.

There could be many things... including the timing and using too thick a material. Have the service company show you that it is working using your material.
