You might have the machine on a setting that does not use the feed dog. Check your stitch setting and see if that helps.

SOURCE: Feed Dog on Brother 270d stuck in up position

I finally figured this out. The feed dog switch in the back was not hitting anything when I moved it back and forth. There is a screw on the underside of the machine that I tightened. It seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

SOURCE: feed dogs stuck in down position

that the feed dog lever is in the up position. When the lever is in the down position, the feed dogs will show on the top if there is no pressure on them at all. Make sure that the machine makes one complete cycle to check this. Just throwing the switch does not make them come to the surface.

If this does not work, then the feed gear is broken and you will need to take it to a mechanic.

SOURCE: my feed dogs will not come up into position

Some machines have to take a stitch for the mechanism to "pop" back into place, I don't really know if your brother is like that but try to sew with it and see if they click back into place.

they need to be checked, may need to be timed or replaced, could also be a problem with the hook and hook race. or see if the feed dogs are in the up position to sew, in the down position is for darning.

Brother XL 5130. I just got this machine and the feed dogs seem to be in the 'down' position, although I can't find a lever anywhere to move them up. In some of the forum, it suggests that


http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_XL_5130_5232_5340_EN_208.PDF

Look up "darning" and it shows a feed dog cover so that means this machine does not have dropping feed dogs.

Now that that is out of the way... most machines have the ability to adjust the height of the feed dogs. But without seeing your machine I can't advise you. It might be better to go have the machine adjusted and serviced.

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.


Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

Feeds dogs are lowered even when in the up position


Check to see if there is a bunch of thread under the needle plate preventing the feed dogs from returning to run position.

This may mean having to take the needle plate off and really looking

I have a Bro PE 400 D. The feed dogs do not seem to be pulling the fabric through without me pulling on it. Stitches are very small even when put on a longer stitch. Embroidery Unit works fine.


check the feed dogs under the needle plate to see if there up or down
if there down then the feed dog switch need to be moved to the up position
but if there up,,,then the machine needs to be serviced so the feed dogs & stitches can be checked

Feed dogs stuck in down position


The feed dogs come up as soon as you start sewing again. Just make sure they're in the up position and start sewing.
