Look in your owner's manual. I'm sure your machine has a reverse feed button but don't know if you can manually disable the feed teeth. If it is so equipped, it doesn't drop the teeth. Rather, it simply causes them to go straight up and down. If the teeth truly stay below the needle plate level, they are likely out of adjustment and need to bereadjusted and raised.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 950E, the feed teeth will not lower.

If the machine has been taken apart it may have been reassembled improperly so that the dial on front of freearm is interfering.
Also, try removing the needle plate. If the teeth touch the side of the plate they may not drop properly.

SOURCE: After lowering the feed teeth I am unable to raise

If you have been embroidering, the feed teeth will raise themselves next time you do regular sewing with a clunking noise - not really loud, but you can hear it. The feed teeth on my Des.1 are on the far right-hand side too so I think that this normal. So long as they are not fouling on the coverplate slots and the material is being fed properly by the feed teeth, your machine is fine.

Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

How do I stop my needle from breaking and how to I see to it that the machine is self feeding the material forward instead of me having to pull it towards me to get the stitches into the material?


The needle may be bent, but surely the material should feed away from you not towards? Is the bobbin in correctly? If you have inadvertently left the feed dogs down the material will not be gripped and stay in the same place instead of moving. Check.

Machine won't feed material. I have to pull while sewing.


First of all stop pulling that will only bend your needle and cause further problems.

Check to make sure your feed dogs are engaged. There should be a switch somewhere around the sewing area front or back or perhaps under a flat bed attachment.

I cant get the material feeder to come up so that the material can slide


Make sure feed dogs (teeth in needle plate beneath needle) are showing. Flip switch to UP position to "feed" fabric. Sometimes control fir this located on back of machine lower left side and " hidden" by your extension table, so remove that table and you'll find the switch! Jimmy

Hi, have tried to use buttonhole feature on singer 4423. Dog feed teeth have dropped - won't come back up and the material isn't feeding though. Any help greatly appreciated.


Re: Reverse feed dogs on Singer 4423 Remove extension table so you can see switch on BACK of machine @ left side. Flip switch to raise feed dogs up. If machine actually sewing in reverse - check n Buttonhole adjustment. Reset it (located bottom right side machine) Jimmy
