Janome 9000 Feed Dog and On/Off button problems

1. The Feed Dog on my 9000 will not raise up to feed the cloth through. Computer says it's raised but it's not. Tried a few rows of sewing by pulling it through...thought it would unstick but no luck. 1. The On/Off button is reversed suddenly. Now, green is for off and red is for on. What's up?

Manual sliding is not working for me. But I can unscrew the plate and lift the feed dogs with the screwdriver and it seems to run okay (until they drop again - then I still have to lift with the screwdriver

Try the emboadery slide in the back of the machine, This happened to me you just need to slide it over to the other side. It dose tell you this in your book.

Why when I sew the fabrics not advance even if the claws are raised and the machine does not stop sewing. I have to close the switch

With the issues you are experiencing, it may be wise to take it for service.

Even though the feed dogs are raised, are they actually moving forward and back as you stitch (remove the thread, raise the presser foot, rotate the handwheel, and watch the feed dog action)? Check that the stitch length is set long enough that the feed dogs will be moving the fabric rather than sewing in place. Another thing to check is whether there is a pressure adjustment for the presser foot. If you are sewing light weight fabric, sometimes the pressure needs to be increased so the feed dogs are able to grab the fabric.

As for the machine running on, it could be a multitude of issues, ie the foot control, electrical... This may be something that a professional should evaluate.

Janome 3050 feed dogs wont come back up

Dropping the Feed Dog
The feed dog can be lowered with the drop-feed lever for sewing on buttons etc.
  • Shift the drop-feed lever to the right to lower the feed dog.
  • Shift the lever to the left to raise the feed dog, it will return to the up position when the machine is started.

NOTE:The feed dog should be in the up position for regular sewing. Turn the handwheel toward you to check if the feed dog comes up after setting the lever in the up position

Feed dogs will not raise, I have lifted the presser foot, pushed the feed dog lever to the raised positon and turned the handwheel till i heard the click. They still will not snap into place in the raissed...


First, lift the presser foot; next, push the feed dog lever to the raised position; finally, turn the handwheel towards you until you hear the feed dogs snap into place

If it doesn't, you will have to run a maintenance check on your feed dogs,

Unplug the machine and examine the feed dogs. The newer machines have metal feed dogs, but older models may have rubber ones, which often need replacing. Examine the feed dogs and check for damage.

Remove the throat plate, which is the covering over the feed dogs, and clean it with a soft cloth. Use a small soft brush to clean the feed dogs. Make sure to remove all lint and thread from the grooves of the teeth. Some machines have an adjustment that lowers the feed dogs for specific sewing procedures. They should be in the raised position for better viewing during the cleaning process.

Clean the area around the feed dogs with a soft brush. Compressed air is a good choice to use in the small tight areas.

Wipe down all areas with a clean, lint free cloth before replacing the throat plate.

Prepare to clean the feed dogs and all other areas that lint may accumulate on, after every project. Your sewing machine will last longer and need fewer repairs if kept clean and lint free.

Always unplug the sewing machine before any type of maintenance or cleaning.

Never use a sharp tool when cleaning the feed dogs as this may cause damage to the sewing machine.

I have a futura ce150 and the feed dog is raised but not moving the fabric

Try lowering the feed dog and then raising it again, but be sure to push the switch over as far as possible. Sometimes the switch will stop just a little short and the feed dog will not be 100% raised but it will seem to be to the naked eye. Hope this helps.

My Memory Craft 6000 feed dog is not advancing the fabric

If the feed dogs are engaged/raised, have you sewn since winding a bobbin?

The machine may still be in "bobbin winding" mode.
