Remove the needle plate and Turn the machine upside down and shake it or just leave it alone. It will not get into your gears. If you can see the needle you can take it out with some tweezers.

Lervia sewng machine. material wont feed through. Dogs are up but material just wont move through. needle moving freely.


Hm, could be several things. If stitches are not being formed, it could be a timing issue (the needle does not arrive at the bobbin at the correct time). Did the machine recently hit a pin or something hard? That will knock a machine out of time. There could also be a broken piece stuck that is preventing the feed dogs from operating. Thoroughly clean the machine around the bobbin area and feed dogs.

Why is the needle not moving or feeding fabric but motor is running


the needle only sews,, it's the feed dogs in the needle plate area that feed the fabric thru the machine, if the feed dogs are in the up position then the machine will sew, if the machine is not sewing then the feed dogs need to be checked to see if the feed dog lever is up or down, look in the manual to see where the lever is and check it, if the lever up the then feed dogs will need to be checked to see if there is something's wrong with them at a sewing machine repair shop.

Reverse button broken


the reverse button that makes the machine sew in reverse is not the feed dog, the feed dog is in the needle plate area. under the needle
when the reverse button is broken the machine must be taken apart and another put in it's place, at a sewing machine repair shop.

How do you know when the feeder dogs are up and down for futura 250


you can see the feed dogs in the needle plate area and be able to feel them with your finger
and the machine will sew a straight stitch when the feed dogs are in the up sewing position
if the feed dogs are down then the machine will not sew only stay in one position

Feed Dogs


when the feed dogs are in the up position the sewing machine
will sew
but when the feed dogs are down postion it will darn
try the feed dog lever again if you can move the feed dog lever and
the feed dogs respond going up and down then you know that
the feed dogs are working and are not broke
but if they do not respond then they need to be checked to see what's
wrong with them

Feet not feeding and thread bunching up


the presser foot or what ever foot your sewing with does not feed the
fabric,, the feed dogs in the needle plate are what moves the fabric
to be sewed, the feet only hold the fabric against feed dog so the
machine can use the needle to sew the fabric.
if the fabric is not moving then the feed dogs have to be checked
can you see the feed dogs in the needle plate area are the up or
down?
do you have a manual for the machine?
a manual help to know where the feed dog lever is, I'm sending
you a link for a manual for the machine, so you can look for the feed
dog lever, if the feed dogs are up then there is something wrong
with the feed dogs & they need to be checked.
but if the feed dogs are down then look in the manual & see where
the feed dog lever is & put it in the up position & see if that brings
the feed dogs up to the sewing position, if the feed dogs do not
come up then the feed dogs need to be checked.

Fabric will not feed through feed dog


check the feed dogs in the needle plate area, you should be able
to feel them with your index finger, if you can't feel them, check for
a lever or knob that sets the up & down postion of the feed dogs.
the name of the machine & model number are not mentioned in the
question. do you have a manual?

I have a necchi model 575FA, and the needle will not advance any idea why?


if the sewing machine is not sewing & staying in one spot the that means the feed dogs are not working properly.
I also have a necchi sewing machine, check the needle plate area that's where the feed dogs are, if the feed dogs are up where you can see them & even feel them with you fingers when you rub your fingers over the needle plate area, if you can't see them good or feel them, then they are not up,,my instruction book shows that you have to remove the extension table, their should be a small door in front of the needle plate area to open that's where the feed dogs are if they are not in the up position, where you can sew, if they are in the down position move the lever to the opposite direction & see if that help the machine to sew, if it make makes no difference which position there in , then it's possible something is wrong with the feed dogs & the machine needs to be serviced

Feed dogs


I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D

Feed dog is stuck


I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.
