SOURCE: feed dog is stuck
I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.

You either have a cover in your accessories pack, or there is a lever next to your bobbin case door. I suspect with the drop in bobbin that you have a little dark plastic cover to put over the feed dogs when you darn etc. Your manual should explain all of its uses. If, you didn't get a manual with your machine, call Singer and complain because it is a very important piece. Their number is 1-800-4singer. Make sure that you register your machine with them, also on their site www.singerco.com Good luck and happy sewing.

I think that there is something disconnected, maybe a belt or a switch has broken. Try taking your machine cover off and check it out. I hope that it is something just disconnected, making the switch not respond. Good luck, I have my fingers crossed for you. I am a 50 year sewing veteran and have seen all sorts of strange things. I anwer for free.

Have you actually put fabric under the foot, and started sewing a few stitches? On some machines the feed dogs do not reengage until the machine has gone through a full stitch sequence. So it looks like they are still down and nothing is happening until you've actually pressed the pedal and tried to stitch again. Also some computerised machines, try turning off and leaving off for 30 seconds, then turn on and try to stitch, sometimes this will work too.
