SOURCE: How do I raise and lower the feed dog on my singer

On your Singer, you don't actually raise / lower the feed dog. Instead you attach a "darning plate" (which should have come with the machine) which covers the feed dogs so they do not come in contact with the fabric. See a page from the owner's manual using this link within my web site: http://www.sewvac1.com/Singer3080_Feed_Drop.pdf

SOURCE: feed dog problem.

Open the bobbin case door and there should be a lever sitting off to the right. It moves from left to right. For the feed dogs to be in the up position the lever should be to the left.

SOURCE: how do I drop the feed dog on a singer sewing

They do not drop.

The accessories with this model include a darning plate, which is a plastic shield that snaps over the feed dogs.

If you cannot find the darning plate, poke a hole for the needle in the center of an index card and tape it over the feed dogs with blue painter's tape (does not leave a residue) and set the stitch length to zero.

Be sure to use a darning foot and lower the presser foot.

My Bernina 440 QE feed dogs won't come back up. Lowered them and now when I push the button they will not re engage.


Try turning the hand wheel through a full rotation. Do this after you press the button and it returns to the engage feed dogs position.

This works on many sewing machines. If the feed dogs remain down, then you may need to have the machine serviced. There is a possibility that a part broke or a linkage is stuck between the button on the hand wheel and the feed dogs.

I hope this helps.

I have a new Juki 8700-7H I switched the feed dogs, throat plate & presser foot to the light duty ones but Now the hand wheel is hard to turn & the stitch length won't adjust. What to do? Timing?


Take your presser foot off and the screws out of the plate. Lift the plate slightly and turn your stitch length regulator to the longest stitch that you use. Now set the plate back down on the feed dogs and see if it will sit evenly without binding. Loosen the feed dog screws and see if you can move the feed dogs enough to allow the plate to sit down. Now, retighten the feed dog screws and rotate the hand wheel towards you to see if they will move freely without binding on the plate. If all well, replace your plate screws and then rotate the hand wheel towards you again.

If this doesn't fix it, you may need to purchase a different # feed dog/plate. You might check to make sure that the items you purchased were meant for a Juki. Mostly they will fit different brands but sometimes it is easier to make sure that the combination of feed dog/plate is actually meant for your Juki.

The other thing you can do is to call a mechanic to readjust the machine to make these work (a more expensive option to be sure!). This has NOTHING to do with your timing. If your machine made good stitches before you change the feed dogs/plate. It should make good stitches after you change it. Timing is all to do with stitch formation and not stitch feeding. Good Luck!

Reverse button won't work. Anh trouble shooting tips?


This button simply reverses the action of the feed dogs of the machine. Remove the thread plate and all the mechanism (bobbin, bobbin holder, etc) you can in the bobbin area. This should give you a better view of the operation of the feed dogs. Rotate the machine with the hand wheel to see how it operates. Continue rotating the hand wheel and push the reverse button. See if you can spot what's preventing the feed mechanism from reversing its rotation. Hopefully it's as simple as material or thread buildup in the mechanism.

Feet not feeding and thread bunching up


the presser foot or what ever foot your sewing with does not feed the
fabric,, the feed dogs in the needle plate are what moves the fabric
to be sewed, the feet only hold the fabric against feed dog so the
machine can use the needle to sew the fabric.
if the fabric is not moving then the feed dogs have to be checked
can you see the feed dogs in the needle plate area are the up or
down?
do you have a manual for the machine?
a manual help to know where the feed dog lever is, I'm sending
you a link for a manual for the machine, so you can look for the feed
dog lever, if the feed dogs are up then there is something wrong
with the feed dogs & they need to be checked.
but if the feed dogs are down then look in the manual & see where
the feed dog lever is & put it in the up position & see if that brings
the feed dogs up to the sewing position, if the feed dogs do not
come up then the feed dogs need to be checked.

I put the feed dogs down and now they won't go back up, what do I do now?


The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

My fabric wasn't moving so I lowered the feed dogs and now I cannot raise them. The button in the back of the machine moves both ways but the feed dogs are not moving. They are staying in the down...


Hello

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.

Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.

Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.

Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.

Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.

Machine sews in place.


Could be the feed dogs are not advancing the fabric. First check to insure that your stitch length is adjusted correctly. Also insure that the clutch wheel is tightened (little wheel inside the big wheel). If stitch length is set to 1 or 0 (darning setting) this is your problem. If the stitch length is correct then rotate the machine by hand and watch the feed dogs to insure that they are moving in an elliptical pattern and rising above the throat plate. If the feed dogs are not moving then the hex screws securing the connecting rod that connects the feed dog mechanism to the drive shaft may have worked loose. If this is the case the timing will need to be readjusted and the screws tightened.

Bernina 1130 feed dogs won't feed fabric


On a Bernina 1130 the power on-off knob and the feed dog raise and lower knob look similar and are next to each other on the end of the machine, making it easy to lower the dog assembly entirely, without realizing it. Make sure you didn't accidentally lower the entire feed dog assembly by turning the feed dog knob: you can tell as you turn it if the dogs are up or down. On the Bernina 1130 the knob, like the power should be in the horizontal position to be working both feed and power.
