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.

Hi, Janome 124 - top thread picks up the bobbin thread, motor sounds good. Th feed dogs won't pull fabric (or paper) thru the machine - dogs don't stick up much above the plate. Help please! Jan


Remove the needle plate and clean the feed dogs with a brush...remove any lint and bits of thread.
A couple of drops of sewing machine oil might help to loosen the feed dogs up. (maybe let the oil seep in and then turn the handwheel towards yourself to help things along.
One other thought:
If your machine has feed dog lowering capability you might want to move that lever/switch back and forth a couple of times.
The feed dogs might not appear to raise or lower, but some machines will only re-engage raised feed dogs when the machine starts to stitch.

Also...verify that the presser foot tension isn't too strong/heavy...and temporarily try using a longer stitch length setting.

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.

Problem with feed dogs and thread catching


Hello Emma,

Hope this helps.
When the feed dogs are lowered they will not go up with just the switch. Try this, move the feed dog switch to the up position, then turn the handwheel 1 complete rotation. Voila they should be up. Let me know if it is solved. Chris

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.

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!
