Question about Necchi 3102 Mechanical Sewing Machine
You might have thread stuck in the feed dog.
Posted on Oct 01, 2013
If you have the manual look to see if this machine has a drop feed system. If it does, look for the button, switch or lever type thing near the bottom that raises and lower the feed dogs. Move that to sew. and try again.
If your machine does not have a drop feed system. Remove any fabric that is in the machine and remove the presser foot and needle so you can see. Watch the feed dogs as you run the machine by hand. Are they moving at all? If they are... move them to the highest point they go and feel to see if they are reaching slightly above the plate. If they are not... you'll either have to have it adjusted by a professional (recommended) Or if you are willing to take the risk of messing it up fully... you can take of the plate and look to see if you can find the screws, etc that adjust the feed dogs. (This may or may not require the removal of the bobbin assembly and carriage) Proceed with caution.. take pictures before you remove something... take out items one at a time and lay out on a piece of sticky side up tape in a line. (tape in case you knock something off)
