First, lift the presser foot; next, push the feed dog lever to the raised position; finally, turn the handwheel towards you until you hear the feed dogs snap into place
If it doesn't, you will have to run a maintenance check on your feed dogs,
Unplug the machine and examine the feed dogs. The newer machines have metal feed dogs, but older models may have rubber ones, which often need replacing. Examine the feed dogs and check for damage.
Remove the throat plate, which is the covering over the feed dogs, and clean it with a soft cloth. Use a small soft brush to clean the feed dogs. Make sure to remove all lint and thread from the grooves of the teeth. Some machines have an adjustment that lowers the feed dogs for specific sewing procedures. They should be in the raised position for better viewing during the cleaning process.
Clean the area around the feed dogs with a soft brush. Compressed air is a good choice to use in the small tight areas.
Wipe down all areas with a clean, lint free cloth before replacing the throat plate.
Prepare to clean the feed dogs and all other areas that lint may accumulate on, after every project. Your sewing machine will last longer and need fewer repairs if kept clean and lint free.
Always unplug the sewing machine before any type of maintenance or cleaning.
Never use a sharp tool when cleaning the feed dogs as this may cause damage to the sewing machine.

The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.

have you checked the needle to see if it may be bent or damaged
try rolling it on a flat surface
have you also cleaned under the needle plate area where the feed dogs
are, for lint or loose threads
on electronic sewing machine when doing the buttonhole,,the buttonhole lever has to be pulled down before the machine will make a buttonhole, I know mine will not make a buttonhole unless the lever is pulled down .

I'm confused by what you mean, but have you raised the presser foot to put the fabric in first? (There's a lever in the back) Also, if you are using it in embroidery mode, you can use your finger to lift the presser foot even farther if you've already lifted it by the lever.) I'm sorry if this doesn't answer your question, I'm just not sure what you mean...
