Question about Sewing Machines
Manual says, to raise feed dogs move switch on front of machine to the right. This does not work. Feed dogs will not rise.
If the switch feel very easy to move then the linkage to the feed dogs is off somewhere. The machine will need to be opened and checked where and what.

SOURCE: feed dogs
I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D

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.
