SOURCE: My fabric won't advance.

Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

SOURCE: the dog feeds will not

The first thing I would check is the button/switch on the back that raises and lowers the feed dogs. This has happened to me and I still don't know how they got lowered. If they are in the proper position then remove the cover plate and check for dust thread or other foreign objects... Hope this helps!

SOURCE: feed dog wont feed the fabric

Remove the needleplate and clean between the teeth of the feeddogs.
Ensure the feeddogs are not lowered for free motion sewing.
Don't know the make/model to be any more specific, so post back here or to the Contact Us page at  www.bargainbox.com.au if there is more to do.

SOURCE: Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly

Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.

SOURCE: feed dogs dont move fabric thur

Have you changed the stitch length selector to zero ? If there is no lint trapped under the needle plate between the feed teeth, then the length selector is likely set too small,.

Brother 8015 and the feed dogs don't move the material forward. The feed dogs go up and down though. How do I get it to work correctly?


Check that the stitch length is set at #2 or higher so the feed dogs will actually advance the fabric. Verify that the feed dogs have not been dropped, as for darning.

Janine Jem platinum 760, ,needle just going up and down, have cleaned and checked feed dogs are up and moving help what's wrong, are the dogs too low is there a adjuster can't find it ?


Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually advance the fabric--the feed dogs actually need to move forward and backward.. The stitch length control controls how much the feed dogs move the fabric. Also, check if your machine has a presser foot pressure control. This manages the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric, causing the feed dogs to grip the fabric in their movement.

If these do not resolve the issue, you may need to take it for service.

How to move feed dogs under needle for singer 514


First, make sure the feed dogs are in the up position and NOT dropped for darning.

Second, check that the stitch length is set to at least a 2 or 2.5 to make sure the feed dogs will actually move the fabric a noticeable distance. The closer the stitch length is set to zero, the closer together the stitches will be until it will sew only in one place because the fabric will no longer advance.

The feed dogs need to move. They should actually rise, move toward the back of the machine, drop down, move forward to the position to again rise--this creates one stitch. If the fabric is not moving, then it is possible that your machine has not been cleaned and oiled recently. Old oil will dry and cause the moving parts to seize.

It was working now it seems to be frozen the needle part wont move

Feed dogs not advancing fabric, only moving up and down


Normally it's good form to give us the make and model number of your machine.

Sounds to me your problem began with operator error. Get in the habit of grasping the threads and holding them as you take your first few stitches. Also make sure your take up lever is in the UP position before you take your first stitch.

Now, look to see if your feed dogs are lowered... if they are put the back up. If this happens again... you've got a warn or broken part.. and you should return the machine. Clearly your "repairman" sold you a lemon.

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.

Fabric doesn't advance


Have you checked your feed dog position? The fabric will not advance if the feed dogs are in the down position. For the machines which don't have the raise/lower feed dog capability, there is a plate that covers the feed dogs and must be removed to advance the fabric when sewing.
