How about turning your handwheel at least 2 complete revolutions towards you? It works on Singers, maybe you can be lucky and have it work for you. Good luck

Feed dog issues, my Bernina 1260 will not reverse and stitching length is erratic.


Take off your needle plate and clean your feed dogs. If the feed dogs get too much lint built up, they won't feed the fabric consistently.

My bernina 1030 is not feeding the fabric, it is sewing in one place


Make sure your feed dogs are not set for free motion or darning. Once you switch them to regular sewing you will need to turn your hand wheel 1 rotation for them to come up. Also make sure that your stitch length is not set at 0.

How do I free up the feed dogs?


You can try this:
1. Remove needle plate
2. Manually hold up the feed dogs with your left hand
3. While they are up turn the hand wheel a couple of times
They may click back into place.

How do i set the machine for straight stiching?


Are you sure your dog feeds are in the up position.

Perhaps you have thread caught in the bobbin area. Take off the stitch plate & take out the bobbin & see if there is anything (lint, thread) & clean out the area.

How do you oil a Bernina Activa 130? The manual doesn't say anything about it.


Remove needle, needleplate, presser foot and bobbin case. Now take a lint brush and clean under the feed dogs and hook area. take the bernina oiler(must be bernina oil only) now place a drop just below where the bobbin case clip on and one small drop under the feed dog area. replace items, sew out a test sample and away you go.

Feed dogs are to low to move fabric. the button on the right side is supposed to raise & lower them I think but it does nothing. Any ideas? thanks!


Your machine needs servicing. The feeddog mechanism is stuck most likely from lint or dirt in it. Pop off the needle plate and clean good there and inside the door to the bobbincase area. The mechanism is inside that door to the right an inch or so. Covers have to be removed to clean this properly. The height adjustment is inside in that same area also. Time for servicing.
Hope the top just needs a good cleaning. Good luck.

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.
