Did the feed dogs get lowered? Look for a switch or button on the back near the sewing area. Sometimes they are under the flat bed attachment

SOURCE: janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog

I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

Have you actually put fabric under the foot, and started sewing a few stitches? On some machines the feed dogs do not reengage until the machine has gone through a full stitch sequence. So it looks like they are still down and nothing is happening until you've actually pressed the pedal and tried to stitch again. Also some computerised machines, try turning off and leaving off for 30 seconds, then turn on and try to stitch, sometimes this will work too.

My feed dogs on my Singer Quantum LE will not feed fabric. Stitch length set at 4 but it still will not feed. why?

Do you have a drop feed lever, or is it computerized. Try moving it up & down. If it is stuck down, it will need to be taken to the repair shop. Sometimes it will reset too low and not come up enough to feed.

How do you know when the feeder dogs are up and down for futura 250

you can see the feed dogs in the needle plate area and be able to feel them with your finger
and the machine will sew a straight stitch when the feed dogs are in the up sewing position
if the feed dogs are down then the machine will not sew only stay in one position

Someone left a virtually NEW Singer Quantum LE, Model SX, sewing machine in the garage of the house we bought (Everything looks to be in pristine condition, even the needle pack is unopened). I am trying...

Oh, lucky you! I'm envious!

No, the stitch length will not have any effect on the feed dog, ever. Check the instructions for raising and lowering the feed dog. I believe on your model, you need to remove the sewing table arm (the manual will show you how) and the control should be on the lower left hand side. What probably happened is that the person who used it last was doing embroidery with the machine. You leave the feed dog down when doing embroidery and let the embroidery arm direct the fabric and embroidery hoop. Thus, you have to raise the feed dog again to go back to regular stitching.

I have a different Singer embroidery machine than your model, but they are similar. If you need more help, let me know. I'll upload pictures or a video showing you what I have to do. But the manual should get you through it quite well.

Happy sewing, and learn about embroidery. Do some google searches and check out some sewing magazines on machine embroidery. You have a goldmine at your disposal that will do gorgeous work on embellishing your clothes, home decor, all kinds of things. There are a lot of beautiful designs not just to buy, but free downloads as well. Learn about the machine and what it can do. You're a lucky woman-that machine sells for over $1000, I believe!

Feed dogs will not go up after being lowered even though I turn dial to the correct position

I have the same problem and had to resolve it with a work around until someone comes up with a fix. I manually force the feed dogs up by taking the small singer screwdriver, placing it on the bottom of the feed dogs then pressing them upward.

Feed dog & beeping

To make the feed dogs come up ... turn your wheel about 2 times all the way and they will come up (this is after you switch the feed dog switch to the up position)
