    I had the same problem. Feed dogs would not come up high enough to pull material through. What I discovered was, although I would clean the bobbin area, I never took the foot off to get a good look. What I discovered was years of built up lint at the rear area of the feed dogs. It was packed in there pretty tight. After cleaning all the lint out with tweezers the dogs worked just like they were supposed to.

SOURCE: feed dog switch

Did you turn the handwheel? The feed teeth will not come up until the machine is operated. Run it a few stitches and they will come up.

There is a white button on the front of the machine to the right - it has likely been pressed in to drop the feed. Press it in and release so the button comes out - that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Designer 1 won't sew...feed dog won't come up

Either the feed drop is engaged or it may not be releasing due to being stuck because of an oiling issue. Let me know if you've checked this as I have one around to reference as well.

SOURCE: Feed dog won't come back up after embroidery is

I didn't "get" the "full rotation" and fought with my new-to-me Viking Rose 605 for an hour to no avail, eventually installing and uninstalling the embroidery hoop. Then, I slid off the bobbin cover AND the feed dog cover, poked the feed dogs with my tweezer, and they released.

SOURCE: Thread balls up underneath my feed dog when

Could be needle/hook timing. With machine off do the following to check timing -

remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area and thread cutter area, removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding counter clockwise when going through the bobbin case.
Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to sew without thread balling up, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website -

Good luck.

The feed dog is up but has stopped feeding

Are the feed dogs moving at all--like moving toward the back of the machine, dropping down below the needle plate, moving forward, rising, and then moving toward the back of the machine? Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually move the fabric--not set at zero or near zero. If the feed dogs stay below the needle plate, then most likely they have been dropped for darning.
If the feed dogs are frozen, not moving, and it is an older mechanical machine, they may be seized due to old oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Or, the feed dog mechanism is broken.

Hi. I have a Singer 132k6. The feed dog goes up and down, but not back and forwards. Any suggestions?

Check that the stitch length is set high enough to actually advance the fabric. Otherwise, the feed dogs may be seized or defective.

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

Dog feet seem as if they are not raising high enough to grab material and move it back. It their a simple adjustment?

It could be that your stitch length is not long enough to sew in a forward direction. Embroidery/Sewing machines have a feed dog switch to raise and lower for sewing or embroidery.

I put the feed dogs down and now they won't go back up, what do I do now?

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).

Yes we know . bit they are down they dont seem to be high enough up .not pulling fabric through .

Remove the needle plate and check for lint build up between the feed dog teeth. Lint will build up and prevent the feed dogs from coming up all the way. I them still don't come up high enough, then they will have to be adjusted.
