This is a sign of lack of oil and it needs servicing. If you can remove the cover on the bottom and follow the connections from you feeddogs to the handle you will see a bullet shaped part that is supposed to move in and out of a hole. It is most likely stuck and needs oil. Give it a good cleaning while you have the cover off. Or take it in for service.
Good luck.

How do I get the sewing needle to move forward on my Janome sewing machine?


Check to see if the feed dogs are lowered. There should be a lever or switch on the front or back of the sewing arm that drops the feed dogs for free motion sewing.

Also check under the needle plate for lint build up. This can prevent the feed dogs from raising.

Good luck!

How do I get my feed dog to move forward on Janome model6019


THE FEED DOG IS IN THE DOWN POSITION FOR DOING FREE ARM SEWING. SLIDE THE PARTS BOX OFF. THERE IS A SMALL SWITCH THAT YOU NEED TO SLIDE TO THE ON POSITION.

Can the feed dogs be lowered on the 8080?


Open the slide plate and see if you have a lever to drop the teeth down, if you don't then the machine will probably use raised plates.

Can the feed dogs be lowered? And need a manual....


Manuals will be difficult to find because the companies limit themsleves to the amount of spares they make, open the slide plate and see if there is a drop feed lever, if not you may have raised plates instead.

Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC


These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.
good luck!

Material doesn't move


Are the feed dogs engaged? Janomes usually have a feed dog sliding switch, either on the back of the sewing machine at the bottom, or behind the accessory case. Be sure the check it out. Hope this helps!
