I have a White sewing machine and the feed dogs have dropped down and won't advance the material. Please help. I'm mid piecing on 3 quilts.
Most machines have a switch for dropping the feed-dog. Yours seems to be stuck. Try a general clean with compressed air, and then apply a little oil.
There may be a feed dog lever in front of the bobbin where the attachable piece in front that extends the sewing area. You cacan also raise and drop your pressure foot and roll the wheel towards you to see if it engages your dog feet. Hope you get it!
I'm using a Merrit sewing machine. I'm facing a problem with the dog feet in my machine. It's getting loosened and the cloth material is not moving while stitching.
You can tighten the screws to fix this
I have a New Home sewing machine model 672. It will not advance the material. I can sew by doing it by hand. The saw tooth advancing plate feels dull. I wonder if it should have sharper edges? Being a mechanical engineer, I looked over the advancing mechanism and it appears to be fine. I cannot find any wear on any other part.
You may have a piece of fabric or thread stuck underneath. Look carefully and clean it out.
