SOURCE: My fabric won't advance.

Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.

SOURCE: Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC

These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.
good luck!

SOURCE: Feed Dog problem

I listened to all that...and none of it worked...so I took the plate off and gave it a good clean. Still nothing. If your machine's a bit old like mine or tends to get stuck...physically lift up the feed dog with your fingernail or a flat screw driver or something (once the plate is off), then push the feed dog lever across and release the feed dog. It should hold in place if nothing else has worked...woo!!! :)

SOURCE: Feed Dogs on Janome 1600P

I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

SOURCE: Feed Dogs won't come back up!

Have you tried sewing with the machine after setting feed dogs to up position. You may already realise but it takes a full revolution of the machine to engage and raise the feed dogs after setting the feed lift control to up (the feed dods will drop as soon as you adjust the feed lift control but will not raise until a full revolution of the stitching mechanism).
If you have already tried this unsuccessfully try removing the cover below the feed dogs and spray lubricant on the feed linkages and try freeing them.

Now the dog feet won't move back up into position


Hello, Carole -

If you have the owner's manual for your Janome Decor Excel 5018 sewing machine, then you can find the diagram naming the parts of the sewing machine (page 2, English text) and showing part #22, the drop feed lever. This is the lever which controls the feed dog.

If that lever does not move either way, then there may be something jamming the feed dog (like lint) or it may need cleaning and oiling.

If you don't have the manual for your machine, see the image to which I refer here:
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/994905/Janome-Decor-Excel-5018.html?page=8#manual

See this page from the manual to find out how to clean the feed dog:
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/994905/Janome-Decor-Excel-5018.html?page=78#manual

Another possibility for the feed dog not moving is if you have your machine set to the "free-motion" or "darning" operation, which disables the feed dog.

I have been given janome 525s the material not feeding through the foot. Unless i pull material it wont move


Make sure the feed dogs have not been dropped, ie for darning or free motion quilting. Also, make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually create a forward stitch.

Janome Machine will not feed material !!


If the fabric is not feeding, the feed dogs are probably not operating properly. Check that they have not been dropped below the needle plate (which is done when darning or free motion quilting). In this setting, the feed dogs never rise above the needle plate to grab and pull the fabric.

The other issue could be that the feed dogs are defective or perhaps seized.

Since you did not provide a model, I can provide only this assistance. It would be helpful to locate (search for make model manual) for your machine.

Janome decor excel 5018


if your talking about the feed dogs that they are not up and the fabric is not being feed, then check in your manual to see if you can manually move the feed dogs to the up position so the sewing machine will sew. here is a link for a manual if you don't have one
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-janome-decor-excel-5018.aspx
if the information about the feed dogs is not in the manual then you'll have to contact a sewing machine repair shop about having the feed dogs checked to see if there is somthing wrong with them.

Is there a way to drop feed dogs on My Excel 4023? I thought there was but I seem to have forgotten how to do this. Please help!


The drop feed lever is located underneath the free arm bed at the back. To raise the feed dogs, push the lever to the right. To drop them push it to the left. Hope this helps!

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.

Material wont feed through


If you remove the accessory box and look carefully behind it, you'll see a feed dog drop sliding button. Just slide the button over to the other position, take a few stitches, and voila, the feed dogs pop up again! Hope this helps...

Material doesn't move


Are the feed dogs engaged? Janomes usually have a feed dog sliding switch, either on the back of the sewing machine at the bottom, or behind the accessory case. Be sure the check it out. Hope this helps!
