Sewing machine - feeding fabric help
I just bought a used brother xl5130 sewing machine and I just cannot get the fabric to be fed correctly. It seems like I need to pull the fabric from the other side. I have another old sewing machine ( I think its called Montgomery or something like that) that does only straight lines that I have had for 2 years now and that one feeds the fabric beautifully. So I am not that new to sewing but have never used a newer machine with different stitches and so on.
Is this how the brother machine is supposed to work? I cleaned it out completely and I am sure I am threading it properly. The one thing I am not sure of is if the feed dogs are aligned correctly.
If I manually crank the wheel, I can see the fabric being fed very slowly. I have the stitch lengh set to 4 and the stitch set to straight. Anybody have any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
Any help is much appreciated!
