I have a Kenmore with a little age. Christmas 1999. I love it really have no desire for a new one. Anyways my Feeddogs started acting up. material would not go move. It started doing it in the middle of me sewing the inseam on the last pair of PJS. I took it apart cleaned really good. check everything the book said. Then it started working as good as new. Then after about an hour of sewing it happened again right in the middle of sewing a seam. I played with the feed dog drop down switched it back an forth and it started working again. Well I called it quits for the night. know it needs servicing badly but I need it for a few more days .
Has this happened to any one out there? if so did you know what it was and is it something simple or do I have to put it in the shop.
Thank you all ahead of time. How wonderful to belong to such a great group.

This happened to me on another brand of machine and I had the bobbin winder engaged and didn't realize it. The feed dogs were giving me fits. I hope your machine problem has a simple solution.

If you get a solution to this, let me know, as I have a Kenmore (little older than yours), but I also have trouble with the feed dogs. Otherwise love the machine.

Ok DUUHHH I would have never thought of that and you know what it was not completly disengaged. It is now working like it should but as soon as I get done with Christmas sewing in it goes for a service and checking to see that everything is the way it is suppose to be. Thank you BellaBoo I would have never,never,never have thought of that.

I'm glad your machine is working again too! It's horrible when it doesn't and there is a deadline to meet.

Of course, the darn things never do act up or quit when we have plenty of time to take it to the repair shop! :|

You should ask Santa for a new one and keep your precious for backup in case you are in this situation again! :)
