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.

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.

you sewing machine's feeddog is called a pressure dial it is located on the left side of your sewing machine at the top above & to the left of the take up lever, it's a little dial it will have numbers on it, & possible a d on it for darning, move the dial to a number like 3 to 5 & see if it will start stitching.
