Question about Sewing Machines
Check to see if the feed dogs lever is in the up position for sewing, if not move the lever to the up position, if the feed dog lever moves and it doesn't make the machine sew, then the feed dogs need to be checked.

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.

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.

Check that the button used to snip your thread at the end of your seam is not stuck. Mine will sometimes stick and if I just touch it again it will again activate and the red start/stop button will work again.
