Feed doesn't feed Singer 560

The feed doesn't advance the material. It will go back and forth for forward or reverse stitching, but doesn't go up and down.

There should be a control to raise or lower the feed dogs, lower to stipple and high to sew normal. it sounds like you may have lowered them

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.

Raise and lower the feed dogs


the feed dogs are the saw toothed piece under the press foot
they go down move forward raise up move back in time with the needle to pull the material through for the next stitch
the amount of movement ( stitch length) is set by the position of the forward and reverse lever/ knob

Why does upper thread snap when backstitching?


May be an issue with the feed dogs, or possibly a burr on the hook. Lay a peice of scrap material under the foot as if you were going to sew, remove needle, then run machine in reverse to see if it feeds material backwards as it should

Why is the fabric not feeding forward when stitching


on the front of the machine there is a lever/knob that sets the stitch size
if it is in the middle position ,the teeth will just go up and down and not back and forward
check that setting
it is used to seal of the threads when starting to sew and when finishing
start the sew for about 1/2" then reverse the feed then go forward again to complete the sewing
at the end of the sew do the same thing again before cutting the threads
this locks the threads as a knot so that the seam will not come undone

How do I stop my needle from breaking and how to I see to it that the machine is self feeding the material forward instead of me having to pull it towards me to get the stitches into the material?


The needle may be bent, but surely the material should feed away from you not towards? Is the bobbin in correctly? If you have inadvertently left the feed dogs down the material will not be gripped and stay in the same place instead of moving. Check.

My material is not feeding through the machine, how do i set it to feed. it works in the reverse mode, but not forward.


If when you sew in reverse you have big stitches then you will need a shop adjustment if you have made sure beforehand that you have the correct stitch length to sew forward.

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.

Material will not move forward


Make sure the presser foot is coming all the way down. Check your stitch length setting too.

Kenmore sewing machine # 385.17626 feed dogs not advancing fabric. Appear to move up and down, but not forward to back.


I had the same problem and had recently posted my own message, with no replies. Took it to a repair person and he fixed it at no cost - it was stuck in reverse because the mechanism(s) were all gunked up. Take off the accessory box on the machine and the bottom plate. move the mechanism so they move freely and take out any gunk you see. The feeder dogs should now move back & forth in addition to up & down, feeding the material properly
