Several different problems could prevent the sewing machine from feeding in the forward direction. Check the presser foot to make sure that is has sufficient pressure so that the fabric can feed forward. Make sure that the clutch knob is pushed in.

If the above tips do not help, a technician will normally need to physically examine the machine to diagnose and repair the cause of this type of failure. I recommend that you take the machine in for service by a technician.
