Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Kenmore Sewing machine model 385.1884180, feed dog quit pulling


A common malady with Kenmore sewing machines. The feed system needs lubrication and perhaps some solvent cleaning to loosen sticky pivot points. If you are adventurous, you could take off the bottom and oil all the moving parts. Or take it to a service person.

Feed dogs not feeding material


Make sure that you did not disengage the feed dogs by accident. You should have some type of button that allows you to control the feed dogs.

Sounds like you need a new needle and the upper tension tightened. Try putting machine oil on the feed dogs and working it up and down until it is free again. You can take off the lower plate and clean any lint that may have collected underneath. Then make sure the thread is coming out of the bobbin correctly before it is inserted in the machine.
