Feed dogs will not go up

I have a esante and the feed dogs will not go up so I can sew. It did an embroidery just fine then the second one it moved to hoop over to position then made a buzzing noise and does nothing else.

Remove the embroidery arm and before yo place the sewing box attachement move the feed dog switch to the left/up position. (its located on the frontside of the machine, which is visible when you remove the embroidery arm.

Prelude. How can I adjust a feed dog to go left to right?


Sewing machine feed dogs generally do not move sideways. They move only forward or backward. Embroidery machines will stitch in all directions but only because they use hoops and not feed dogs to move the fabric. If you need the stitch to go a different direction, you can try rotating the fabric. Free motion quilting uses your hands to move the fabric under the needle but the feed dogs are not in use.

Do The ESE ESante Baby Lock hoops fit the ESI ESante Baby Lock machines


The Babylock Esante ESE1 and ESE2 hoops are not compatible with the Esante ESI1 or ESI2 hoops. The Babylock ESI1/2 used the same hoops as the Brother PC7000 and PC7500. The ESE1/2 use the hoops that are compatible with the Brother PC6500 and PE700 series embroidery machines.

I wish that I had better news for you. This site has hoops for sale for both the ESI1 and the ESE1: http://www.allbrands.com/categories/871 . If you need hoops for either machine, use the compatibility data on each machine type to help you find more vendors that may have the embroidery hoops.

How to bring sewing foot holder to embroidery position


Hi, I hope this helps. If it doesn't post again.
"Check:
Place the sewing foot under the sewing foot
holder so that the pins of the foot snap into
the sewing foot holder when the presser foot
lifter is lowered.
Please check that the sewing foot is properly
engaged by raising the presser foot lifter
."

Question: Are you using top feed? If so:
"For all sewing jobs with the top feed, only use sewing feet with Cutout at the back (OA, 1A, 3, 4)."

Embroidery foot Part No.: 98-694-840-00 will not work with top feed.

Also, except for eyelets, the darning foot can be used for embroidery.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do :) darn or embroider :); I'm not sure what mode you're working in either; embroidery mode?

Darning with straight stitch
Program 00
Fit darning foot No. 6.
Set the needle at its highest position by turning
the handwheel, and push the pin of the darning
foot fully into the hole of the sewing foot holder
slightly pressing the darning foot between thumb
and forefinger. When doing this, the guide fork
should place itself around the presser bar and the
wire must be behind the fixing screw.
Darning position:
Lower the presser foot lifter pressing it lightly to
the rear until it snaps into the darning position.
Important Only in this position you have the
optimum thread tension for darning.

• Place the darning work in the darning hoop.
• Lower the feed dog.
• Pull up the bobbin thread and hold the threads
when you start sewing.
• Now guide the fabric back and forth evenly;
the length of the darn will be set by the size of
the hole. As you are determining the stitch
length yourself while sewing with the feed dog
lowered, you should sew at an even speed.
When you have reached the width of the dam
aged area, darn over the damaged area again
from right to left.
This guarantees a durable darn.
TIP: The faster you sew, the easier and more even
the darning will be. It you are moving the workpiece
too slowly, small knots will appear on the
wrong side of the fabric."

Whether working with terry-cloth or woven fabric,
with the help of the darning foot and the pro
gram 02 you can embroider initials of your own
design

Drop the feed dog and insert the darning foot.
Put the machine into the darning position.

Spread the fabric in an embroidery hoop and
embroider in accordance with program 02.

Lower feed dog
If the feed dog is not lowered for embroidering, the
machine does not embroider when the foot pedal
is pressed and the message appea rs:
Lower feed dog

ok?
The feed dog must be lowered in embroidery
mode.

Feed won't move fabric


Feed dogs in the up position? Most machines have a switch to lower the feed dogs for free motion or embroidery! If switches in correct position then remove your stitch plate and clean out all fluff built up between the stitch plate and the feed-dogs. If none of these: dealer time.

The dog feed stuck in the downward position.


When you set the switch for the feed dogs to be in the up position, turn the handwheel 1 complete revolution and they should come up.

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.

Feed dog won't come back up after embroidery is done and ready to sew normal. How to fix it?


You must slide the feed dog up/down switch over (consult your manual).

If you slide the switch over, the feed dogs will not come up. It is only when the machine makes a full rotation that the mechanism engages and the feed dogs return to the sewing position.

If the feed dogs will still not raise, then you will need to take it to your dealer.

Sewing from m-memory


Hi Ann,
m-memories are not stitched with the hoop or embroidery unit. They are stitched with the #2 sewing foot and with the feed dogs up just like any of the 9mm decorative stitches on the machine.
