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.

There is a white button on the front of the machine to the right - it has likely been pressed in to drop the feed. Press it in and release so the button comes out - that should solve the problem.

I finally figured this out. The feed dog switch in the back was not hitting anything when I moved it back and forth. There is a screw on the underside of the machine that I tightened. It seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

that the feed dog lever is in the up position. When the lever is in the down position, the feed dogs will show on the top if there is no pressure on them at all. Make sure that the machine makes one complete cycle to check this. Just throwing the switch does not make them come to the surface.

If this does not work, then the feed gear is broken and you will need to take it to a mechanic.

SOURCE: I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs raised.

you sewing machine's feeddog is called a pressure dial it is located on the left side of your sewing machine at the top above & to the left of the take up lever, it's a little dial it will have numbers on it, & possible a d on it for darning, move the dial to a number like 3 to 5 & see if it will start stitching.

The feed dogs come up as soon as you start sewing again. Just make sure they're in the up position and start sewing.

Feed dogs are stuck in down position


The dial for that is usually underneath the machine and because it is not used very often it either gets stuck and won't slide or it may get loose and slide to the " lowered feed dog position" on its own.

Fabric not feeding on singer model 750


check that the feed button or lever is in the correct position
If it is in the centre position then the feeding foot doesn't know to go forward (normal ) or reverse
If electronic controlled the maybe a service is called for.

My singer 6180 feet dogs eats fabric at the top of feed dogs fabric gets stuck and does not feed the fabric why???


It sounds like the height of your feed dogs is the problem. I don't know which model you have, but of it's a plastic casing, you will need to take it in for service.

Singer 758 model and the material is not feeding through the machine. Needle is only going up and down in one spot.


here is a link for a free manual, check to see if the feed dog lever is up in the sewing position, if the feed dog lever is down then try to raise it up. if it will not raise then the machine needs to be check to see what's wrong with the feed dog.

How do you know when the feeder dogs are up and down for futura 250


you can see the feed dogs in the needle plate area and be able to feel them with your finger
and the machine will sew a straight stitch when the feed dogs are in the up sewing position
if the feed dogs are down then the machine will not sew only stay in one position

I have a singer 3343c machine, when sewing the fabric foot does not move, the fabric while the machine is sewing.


the presser foot only holds the fabric against the feed dogs in the needle plate area

check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position

if not there should be a nob in the feed dog area to move them up & down

on some models when you remove the extension table the nob is at the back

I have a futura CE-200. The feed dog is stuck in the down position. The switch will not work. Is this something that I can fix?


I had the same problem with my Singer machine. The lady in Hancocks told me that when you begin sewing the feed dogs will pop back up. Just rotate your wheel and see if that fixes it.
