Take it back to where you had it repaired and ask the dealer to make it work under his warranty. Maybe he can tell you exactly what's wrong with your machine. Usually it is a pressure problem or the feed dogs are filled with lint or they don't rise high enough above the needle plate to work. Take off the needle plate and check them.

Machine will not feed fabric except for the first couple of stitches


if you have a manual check to see where the feed dog lever is and
see if it's in the up position for sewing or the down position ,
also possible that something is wrong with the feed dogs and
they made need some type of adjustment.

I put the feed dogs down and now they won't go back up, what do I do now?


The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

My Babyloc serging machine does not feed the material through! The teeth appear not to move the fabric. I have taken off the plate to see if any fabric is underneath, but there is no dust or fluff. The...


I had this same problem with a Babyloc machine. The two hex set screws that hold the feed dog assembly to the drive shaft may have worked loose. You can confirm this by turning the machine by hand and observing the movement of the feed dogs. Tighten the hex screws using the correct size Allen key. You will most certainly need to adjust machine's timing. When working properly the feed dogs should rotate front to back in an elliptical pattern, remaining down during the down cycle of the needles. If the set screws have worked loose you may also have a problem with the stitch length adjustment cam (located on the left side of the machine.) This problem will manifest in a machine that is locked up or slows down during use. When dry the cam will heat up, expand and seize within its bearing sleeve. To fix this problem you will need to remove the small plastic cap (with red arrow) covering the screw securing the cam. It is usually also necessary to remove the connecting rod/sleeve that the cam rides in. Once both of these parts have been removed, you will need to carefully separate them and resurface the inside of the sleeve. This can be done with a very fine (500grit or higher) emery paper. Once the cam fits inside the sleeve without binding, reassemble using sewing machine oil or lithium grease and adjust feed dog timing.

Material is stuck in the machine under the feed dogs and I can't get it out


Remove the needle, presser foot, needle plate, & bobbin.

Snip at the fabric and remove in pieces with tweezers - do this gently.

Feed Dog problem


Here are some common reasons that the fabric won't feed:
1. Stitch length is set to zero, or machine is in button hole setting
2. Feed dogs are dropped (free motion setting)
3. Broken gears (typically in old singers)
4. Presser bar not coming down - may be bound up.
5. Lots of lint under the needle plate (in between the feed dogs) preventing feed dogs from raising.

Hope this helps.

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233


Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!
