Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

Is this a second hand machine ?
Is the stitch length selector set to > 1
Remove the needleplate and clean between teeth of feeddogs if it has been a while since this has been done, old lint will impede feeding.
Presser foot tension for general work needs to be set at 3, or the chromed button pushed down to the grooved line, depending on machine.
If new, call the dealer where you bought it and speak to them.

The most common troubles with feeddogs not working properly is either lint trapped in between the feed teeth...remove the needleplate and clean out the lint which may look like felt in extreme cases.
the presser foot tension is too low, in which case, increase tension...there will be a knob of some sort at the top of the machine directly above the Presser Foot Shaft.
It is a remote possibility that the feeddog height needs adjusting ...it will have been a major trauma of a severe jam or tugging etc to cause this.
As it would almost certainly result in other timings being affected and particularly in the case of a Serger/Overlocker, the added risk of breaking loopers (expensive), I would recommend a service by suitably qualified technician to restore all to optimum condition.

The little white button on the lower right front of the machine is the button that drops the feed teeth. If it is pressed in the feed teeth are down, push in a lift upward to be sure it's in the "Up" position. Then look on the left side of the machine, you'll see a dial, (NOT the dial facing you as you sit in front of the machine) make sure the red dot on the dial is lined up with the red dot on the painted part of the machine.
Finally look at the dial on the front of the machine. The one with the little button in the center of it. Put it on the number 3. If your machine doesn't feed fabric after doing what I've outlined then you need to take it in for service.
