Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.

SOURCE: heavy material feed dog
To the very best of my knowledge (and I've been full time as a manager / owner in my family sewing machine sales / service business for almost 30 years (with many more part-time before that), I know of no "heavy material" feed dog that has been available for the Pfaff 130. Please keep in mind that the 130, while pretty heavy duty (especially compared to many of today's machines), was never manufactured or intended to be heavy duty in the sense of sewing heavy items such as uphaolstery fabrics (canvas, nagahide, etc.). It was produced with the intent of being a reliable household (non-commercial / industrial) machine with the purpose of sewing light-to-moderate heavy metrails. What exactaly are you trying to sew that leads you to the request of using "heavy material" feed dogs or that you feel Pfaff produced / manufactured such an item?

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.

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.

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.
Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.
Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.
Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.
Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.
