Check they feed dogs are at least one mm above the needle plate. If not check their is no lint under the needle plate. To raise the feed dogs you remove the rear cover and turn a knurled wheel. From the rear it is visible to the right and above the gear that drives the hook.

Fabric not advancing


Make sure the feed dogs are not in the dropped position (for darning).

If it is very light-weight fabric, most machines will have a presser foot pressure adjustment that will increase the presser foot's pressure on the feed dogs, thus pulling the fabric through better.

Make sure the feed dogs are clean--no debris stuck between the teeth, under the feed dogs, or around the bobbin case. If it is an older machine that has been used a lot, the feed dogs could be worn down and need replacement or adjustment. (Do not run the machine with the presser foot directly on the feed dogs. This will cause excessive wear to the feed dogs and the presser foot.)

My fabric won't feed


Check that the feed dogs have not been dropped for darning or free motion quilting. If the feed dogs do not rise above the needleplate, they will not pull the fabric through the machine.

Feed dogs do wear (which is why one should always sew with fabric against the feed dogs--never on bare metal).

Something else that happens is that gunk builds up between the teeth of the feed dogs so that they no longer have the grip they need to move the fabric.

Another thing to check is the presser foot "pressure." A lot of sewing machines have a pressure adjustment that increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs. (Consult your owners manual.) he pressure can be adjusted according to the type of fabric being sewn.

Feed dogs are hitting the needle plate


Needle is bent replace with new needle. You may need to adjust feed speed so that needle doesn't bend. Good luck

Adjust dog feed


The feed dogs in all Classic Bernina machines from the 130-180\'s will eventually come out of adjustment. This is due to the so-called cost savings modern manufacturing method of drilling holes in the machine frame parts and using thread forming screws instead of tapping or cutting cylindrical threads and the use of standard fasteners.

Regarding the screw fastener itself having a cylindrical screw form, the Bernina Classic machines used thread forming screws. Not necessarily a bad thing but in this case a dumb idea. Because these screws are not exactly cylindrical, they will not hold tight over time, hence loosening of the feed dog\'s height adjustment. You will need a T-10 Torx screw driver to make the adjustment.

Proceed by opening the bobbin cover door. You will find a rectangular opening to your upper right and will be able to see the screw head of the feed dog adjustment. With the feed dog in the upper most raised position, loosen the screw and lift the feed dog. Tighten the screw.

Check the height of the feed dog by rotating the hand-wheel in the direction of motion until the needle eye is flush with the needle plate. The feed dog teeth will also be flush in the normal position. If too high or too low, readjust to this height and, voila\'..... SewTechnical Home

The feed dog is stuck in the down position, and it will not adjust to the higher position when I adjust the feed dog control. Thanks for your help!


the best thing to do is have the feed dog check to see if it needs a adjustment or if it needs to be replaced

The dog feed stuck in the downward position.


Have you turned the machine off and then back on?

The switch may be broken and you will need to find a sewing machine repair shop that repairs all brands of sewing equipment.

If you decide to purchase another machine try a different brand. This one seems to have on a lot of issues.

Feed dog is stuck


I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.
