I have not had my coverpro for very long. The first time I used it, it worked beautifully. I used it with two needles. I started to use it last night and what would happen is as I sewed the fabric it fed or advanced fine under the needles, but it would not feed out the back, under the pressor foot. I thought it was gathering the fabric, but as soon as I would lift the pressor foot the fabric would lay flat, so it wasn't gathered at all. Does anyone know why this would happen?

What type of fabric are you using? Maybe you need to reduce the presser foot pressure for this fabric.

I was using a knit fabric both times. I just don't understand how it changed from the first use to the second. I rethreaded it to see if that was the problem, but it still did the same thing. Maybe I will try reducing the feed dog tension.

Rejoyce, I don't know if you bought the white extension table for your Coverpro or not. But I know that if the table is set too high, it will block the fabric from exiting out the back. If you do have the extension table, lower the height and see if that helps.

No, I don't have the extension table.

Has the freearm insert come loose? That can also prevent the fabric from feeding correctly if it isn't level with the rest of the bed.

I hope you find a solution soon!

I agree. An incorrectly set free arm would block the fabric from feeding out correctly -- just the way an incorrectly set extension table would.

I have had the problem that sometimes the fabric gets 'caught' on the back of the foot/feeddogs and does not feed properly. Usually I just need to release it and then it sews fine after that. This is just at the beginning of the seam and only happens with knits.

Well, guess what the problem was. The free arm insert was not in correctly and was blocking my fabric from feeding out the back. I can't believe I didn't notice! Problem now solved. Thanks for your help!

Kim, I'm so glad it was a simple problem that's easily fixed. And I'm not surprised -- the Coverpros are hardy little machines that almost never have problems.
