My brand new Janome 7330 won't feed the fabric. I assume the feed dogs need to raise up higher, but I have no idea how to do this.

Hi, Turn off the power, remove the needle, presser foot and needle plate.

Clean the feed dogs with an old toothbrush.

Turn the hand wheel - are they moving?

Make sure the stitch length is not set at zero.

Refer to your manual for engaging the feed dogs.

If you still cannot get the feed dogs to feed, the machine will need service by a professional.

Why when I sew the fabrics not advance even if the claws are raised and the machine does not stop sewing. I have to close the switch


With the issues you are experiencing, it may be wise to take it for service.

Even though the feed dogs are raised, are they actually moving forward and back as you stitch (remove the thread, raise the presser foot, rotate the handwheel, and watch the feed dog action)? Check that the stitch length is set long enough that the feed dogs will be moving the fabric rather than sewing in place. Another thing to check is whether there is a pressure adjustment for the presser foot. If you are sewing light weight fabric, sometimes the pressure needs to be increased so the feed dogs are able to grab the fabric.

As for the machine running on, it could be a multitude of issues, ie the foot control, electrical... This may be something that a professional should evaluate.

Fabric not advancing


run you finger over the feed dogs under the foot - can us feel them above the surround? if not, you have placed your machine into free style sewing, and the feed dog does not advance the fabric in this mode. Look in your manual and see where the feed dog gets lowered/raised - raising it again should solve your problem.

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

Fabric will not feed


DO NOT pull your fabric through. Under the face plate you will find the feed dogs. They are two rows of "textured" metal things that grab the fabric from underneath and pull it back. This pulls your fabric through. Look in your manual for info on the feed dogs. They are adjustable. You need to raise the feed dogs to a higher position.

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 fabric wasn't moving so I lowered the feed dogs and now I cannot raise them. The button in the back of the machine moves both ways but the feed dogs are not moving. They are staying in the down...


Hello

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.

Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.

Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.

Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.

Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.
