Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Am guessing you've already verified the feed dogs are in the raised position. The other thing to check is the presser foot pressure. If you are sewing lighter weight fabric, you may need to increase the pressure to make more contact with the feed dogs, or lighten the pressure when sewing thick fabric. Something else that may help is using a roller, teflon, or walking foot.
On the other hand, if the feed dogs are not moving like they should even if you have the stitch length higher, your machine may need service. Be sure you've cleaned the feed dogs of any accumulation of lint, dirt, debris. Of course, if you have used the machine a lot, the feed dog points do wear so they may not be gripping like new.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. It turns out that the built in "scissors" got stuck and were in the way. It's a brand new machine so I am hoping that it won't need to go in for service."
