Question about Janome Memory Craft 4800QD
I have lowered my feed dog on the Janome 4900MC and now I want to raise it back up for normal sewing. I pushed the dog feed switch made to raise it, turn the handwheel towards me and it still will not go up. I have read the instructions and it is still not working. Am I missing a step??
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.
