The feed dogs on my brother sewing machine is not moving the fabric. It will move it if I sew in reverse but not forward. What could the problem be? How can I fix it?


Um. A feed dog pretty much always moves fabric forward. Only time I can think of that it doesn't ...you might need to push down the ...had to go down the hall and retrieve my machine's manual.. Forgot the name of the parts. On top of the left end of your machine, press down on the 'darner'. Knob on the top of that side of any machine. It regulates the pressure on the top thread. It thinks I'm not being clear, but it is 4:30 am.

Yesterday, while machine quilting, I heard a clank. Now the feed dogs won't feed the fabric. The feed dogs seem to move back when I start sewing; it seems as if they stayed forward before...


Did you check to make sure the feed dogs weren't inadvertently dropped. Most sewists drop the feed dogs for free motion quilting or darning.

I think you are saying no stitch is formed also referred to as the needle not catching thread. Below offers a variety of diagnoses and solutions which are straight forward.

Sewing Machine Needle Not Catching Thread

Below is general advice quoted from 6 common sewing machine problems solved:

Skipped stitches are usually due to a bad needle. The needle may have become damaged or bent by sewing material too thick for the needle, forcing material through the feed dog, or hitting a straight pin. If the problem seems to be consistently reoccurring, it may be due to forcing the fabric. Sewers should allow the feed dog to pull the fabric and only use their hands to guide the fabric through the feed. When sewing knitted fabrics, using a stretch needle can help prevent skipped stitches.

Below is a video showing how thread is hooked into a fabric:

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Why would my Singer 6235 not feed the fabic:


h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.

Is it in the button hole setting? If so that could explain it.
