Why is my RSS feed showing/not showing after I disabled/enabled it?

After activating or deactivating the default feed or your custom feed it is necessary to flush the permalinks. Just go to the permalinks settings page and save it without changing anything.

Why is my RSS feed not showing any images or is served with the incorrect image size?
