On your Singer, you don't actually raise / lower the feed dog. Instead you attach a "darning plate" (which should have come with the machine) which covers the feed dogs so they do not come in contact with the fabric.

First, lift the presser foot; next, push the feed dog lever to the raised position; finally, turn the handwheel towards you until you hear the feed dogs snap into place
If it doesn't, you will have to run a maintenance check on your feed dogs,
Unplug the machine and examine the feed dogs. The newer machines have metal feed dogs, but older models may have rubber ones, which often need replacing. Examine the feed dogs and check for damage.
Remove the throat plate, which is the covering over the feed dogs, and clean it with a soft cloth. Use a small soft brush to clean the feed dogs. Make sure to remove all lint and thread from the grooves of the teeth. Some machines have an adjustment that lowers the feed dogs for specific sewing procedures. They should be in the raised position for better viewing during the cleaning process.
Clean the area around the feed dogs with a soft brush. Compressed air is a good choice to use in the small tight areas.
Wipe down all areas with a clean, lint free cloth before replacing the throat plate.
Prepare to clean the feed dogs and all other areas that lint may accumulate on, after every project. Your sewing machine will last longer and need fewer repairs if kept clean and lint free.
Always unplug the sewing machine before any type of maintenance or cleaning.
Never use a sharp tool when cleaning the feed dogs as this may cause damage to the sewing machine.
