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 screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.

SOURCE: how to put feed dog down on HD110

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 Good luck and happy sewing.

SOURCE: I let my feed dog down to stipple, and not it

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.

My machine will not advance on it's own what do I need to do to fix it??

it sounds like the feeddogs are in the down position, look at the
area where the needle plate is and see if you can see the feeddogs?
you can even run your finger over that area and you should be able
to feel the teeth. if you can feel the teeth or see them, then check
the feed dog lever to see if it's in the up postion.
the feed dog control lever should be in close to the bobbin area,
the question is under the necchi 4575 catagory, so that's the
information I'm putting in for the machine, if the lever is up then it's
possible that something is wrong with the lever or the feed dogs
them selves and they need to be checked at a sewing machine

My fabric dosnt move foward or back wards with the petal or manually ..

if the fabric won't move then there is something wrong with the
feed dogs, check in the needle plate to see if you can see the feed
dogs. you should be able to see them & touch them with your finger
since they are not moving the fabric it would be a good idea to
have the machine checked
I'm putting a link for a free manual for the machine, you can check
in the manual to see if it show where the feed dog lever is on the
machine, if it doesn't show a lever, or the lever is not responding to
movement then the machine needs to be checked to see what's

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.

Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

Feed dog wont feed the fabric

Remove the needleplate and clean between the teeth of the feeddogs.
Ensure the feeddogs are not lowered for free motion sewing.
Don't know the make/model to be any more specific, so post back here or to the Contact Us page at if there is more to do.
