Sewing Machine Not Feeding Fabric?

My mom has a Brother Lx2500 sewing machine and it's not feeding fabric. We cleaned out the lint and still nothing. Hoping someone can help.

First, here's a link to the user manual from the Brother website:

According to your manual, your machine doesn't have a feed dog drop - to darn, sew on buttons, do some satin stitching embroidery, you have to apply the darning plate over the feed dogs.

Assuming you haven't got that covering plate on, the only three things I can think of to cause the feed dogs to malfunction would be the need to return it to sewing mode after winding a bobbin, ensuring the stitch length and width settings are correct, or (gulp) a broken gear.


The machine is a fairly new model, first in production in 2011, so it's not likely you have a broken part - but it is possible if the machine has been asked to sew too thick a fabric, or if fabrics have been pulled forcefully through the feed dogs.

Check to be sure the machine has been set back to sewing mode from bobbin winding mode, and go through the manual to be sure you're setting all of the stitch settings correctly.

If none of the that solves your issue, it's time for a visit to the repair tech.

Put a bit of sewing machine oil on mine! It worked!
