Am having trouble with my husqvarna prisma 980 sewing machine withe mechanism that pushes the material further automatically as I am sewing.


The amount of pressure on the pressure foot can cause real problems. If you lower the pressure on the foot it is likely to work better. If this doesn't work try using another type of material. Some materials have problems because of being slippery or too thin. If this doesn't work check to see if the pressure foot is directly on top of the feed dogs. If it is it will need to be adjusted so that it isn't directly on top of the feed dogs.

Does it feed.the.material by itself.automatically or do you have to do it


machines feed automatically
the bottom feed is by a set of jaws that rise up and move back then down and repeat the process back or forward according too the sewing direction required
mostly if it is not progressing the stitch it is because the feed direction is close to neutral position or in the middle of forward /back

My feed dogs all of a sudden will not feed the material through. How can I fix it?


Please provide specific information regarding your Bernina model. The older "mechanicals" do require frequent oiling--not just at the hook, but throughout the machine. (When they made these old machines, they didn't really consider that the machines would still be going strong 20, 30, or even 50 years later.) Could be the oil surrounding the feed dogs has dried and is preventing the parts from moving.

If your Bernina is a newer computerized model, you should probably take it for service.

NOTE: The mechanical machines use a different oil than the computerized models. Be sure to get the correct oil for your machine.

When i start sewing sometimes the material gets sucked down into the feeds dogs. this causes the thread and the material to make a mess i sometimes can not get the thread out i am making quilt pieces


Use a scrap of fabric under the pressure foot as a leader and feed the quilt square after it clears just like if you are chain sewing. After you have sewn the square clip the scrap off and use it again.

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.

Can the consew 339rb-1 be used only with 1 needle?


this is the specifications for the 339rb-3. they sould be close to yours, if you can put two seperate needles in and the machine hase one hook and bobbin case then I would say you can use one needle, if you have two hooks and bobbins, I would say no, you may want to thread with one and just hand turn for a few stiches to sew hoe it reacts, leave the bobbin door open so you can watch the hook.




Specifications

  • Compound feed, walking foot mechanism insures even feeding of material

  • Safety clutch protects the hooks from being damaged
