Hello,

Uninstall the softwares about your esate (you should uninstall all the drivers of esate from the Pc, and then restart the system. disconnect and reconnect the connection towards the pc and esate and make sure that the ports is really working. because sometimes and most of the time the connection is only the errors.

Try to use a small amount of penetrating oil, very small amount, like the wd-40, like spray it on a small cap, then get a toothpick, dip it on the wd-40 then put small amounts on the screw, then wipe the excess off. be carefull not to put too much.

    I wonder if the lever or button that drops the feed dogs for
    free motion embroidery has been engaged...

    Also take off the needle plate and do a thorough delinting. I've seen enough lint jammed behind
    and under feed dogs that they didn't have a prayer of moving. Try this also You
    should have a lever on the right hand side underneath the stitch length lever
    or dial, or, if you open the slide plate there should be a lever near the teeth
    to lower them down, if you do not have any levers then you cannot lower them
    down, you may have to use a raised throat plate to sew buttons on

    What exactly is the issue with the machine? Is it not feeding the fabric? The feed dogs do work in an up/down motion while pulling the fabric through. There is also usually a foot pressure adjustment.

If there is a darning mode on this unit, check to make sure it's not in the darn mode. In darn mode the feed dogs raise and don't work.

Have you tried lubricating them?

Posted on Jul 24, 2008

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jul 24, 2008

    the screw is tight since it is not screwed from a long time.

    actually its not lubricating.

    pour some kerosene oil over the screw and leave it for one night.

    try removing the screw next day.

    you can do it successfully.

My feed dogs will not pull my material through.


Check to be sure you have not inadvertently dropped the feed dogs on your machine. Dropped feed dogs are used for 'darning' or 'free motion quilting.' Below is info from Troubleshooting Manual:

Fabric does not feed through the machine
The feed dogs are lowered. Use the feed dog position switch to raise the feed dogs. 81
The stitches are too close together. Lengthen the stitch length. 42
The wrong presser foot was used. Attach the correct presser foot. 179
The needle is bent or blunt. Replace the needle with a new one. 34
The thread is tangled. Use scissors, etc., to cut the tangled thread and remove it from the race, etc.

Feed won't move fabric


Feed dogs in the up position? Most machines have a switch to lower the feed dogs for free motion or embroidery! If switches in correct position then remove your stitch plate and clean out all fluff built up between the stitch plate and the feed-dogs. If none of these: dealer time.

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.

I have a Bernina 135S and I managed to get a pin caught in between the plate and the feed dogs. I removed the plate, took out the pin and put it back together although now my feed dogs only move up and...


Check whether the feed dogs are coming above the stitch-plate at their maximum height. They should be about 1mm above the stitch plate when driving the material under the foot. I assume, by the way, that you haven't got the feed-dog drop button pushed-in at the handwheel end !!! If the feed-dogs are lower than 1mm, or not above the stitch-plate, the dog cam cam-foller will need adjustment. You have to remove the front cover to get at this and it should be done with a special gauge, so really its a service agent job, however, for what its worth;
With the front cover removed to gain access to the free-arm mechanism, look to the right of the hook race and on the end of the bottom drive shaft there are two black plastic cams . The right-hand one regulates the movement of the dogs front-to-back in association with the stitch-length stepper-motor, which drives the upper shaft in the free-arm. The left-hand cam regulates the up-down movement of the dogs and the cam follower (a piece of right-angled plated metal) has to be adjusted to determine the maximum height of the dogs aboe the stitch plate. The cam follower rubs against the top edge of the dog cam. There should be a small spring that pulls the cam follower down onto the cam at the front - if that's missing, the feed-dogs probably wont move quite correctly. To adjust the dog height, turn the hand-wheel until the feed-dogs are at their maximum height, unscrew the small screw in the left-hand side of the cam follower a couple of turns (dont, for goodness-sake, take it out !) - the feed-dogs should then pop-up above the stitch-plate. You now have a problem without the proper gauge ! You need to gently push the dogs back down against spring pressure until they are the correct height above the stitch-plate and tighten the screw on the cam follower. This should, at least, get over the problem - it wont be exactly right without the gauge and there is another adjustment that should be done to ensure the front and back of the dogs are at slightly different heights, but it should be good enough without this.

Good Luck !!!

I was cleaning the dust out of the feed dog area and somehow disconnected the feed dog from the lever in the back that raises it and lowers it. How can I reattache them?


Hello,

A feed system for a sewing machine having a frame, a horizontal arm shaft journalled in said frame, a vertical arm shaft extending downwardly from adjacent said horizontal arm shaft, means rotatably connecting said horizontal arm shaft to said vertical arm shaft, said feed system comprising a cam fixed to said horizontal arm shaft, a sheet metal feed fork having parallel bent over portions at one end thereof embracing said cam and in driving engagement therewith, a feed rock shaft supported in said frame and having an arm connected to the other end of said feed fork, feed regulating means carried by said frame and connected to said feed fork for converting motion induced by said feed cam to oscillations of said rock shaft, said rock shaft being formed with a pair of upright rock arms on the other end thereof, a horizontally disposed U-shaped sheet metal feed dog carrier having each end thereof connected to one of said upright rock arms, said feed dog carrier having a horizontal shelf extending from the base of the U between the ends thereof, said shelf supporting thereon a feed dog, means for attaching said feed dog to said shelf, a stud affixed to said base of said feed dog carrier beneath said shelf, a sheet metal lift lever pivotally supported on a horizontal axis in said frame substantially parallel to said rock shaft, said lift lever having a slotted end for engagement with said stud extending from said feed dog carrier, said lift lever having the other end thereof supporting a cam follower adjacent said vertical cam shaft, and a lift cam removably affixed to said vertical cam shaft and in engagement with said cam follower on said lift lever.

Take care.

Feed dogs will not go up


remove the embroidery arm and before yo place the sewing box attachement move the feed dog switch to the left/up position. (its located on the frontside of the machine, which is visible when you remove the embroidery arm.

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.
