SOURCE: How do I lift the food dogs on my Janome 344lx. They are down and I don't know how to get them up so I can sew the material

Perhaps a manual would be hlepful:

Janome Machine Manuals
This is the 344 without the LX, but it possibly is close enough to your machine to be useful. You can probably check with the vendor before ordering.

The feed dog lever could be the button on the bottom right of the machine. If not, then it is most likely hidden under the removable cover of the free arm.

Feed dog on Janome 9000 will not come up


Have you cleaned it recently? There could be lint, dust, threads stuck in the area that are preventing the feed dogs operating. If that is not the cause, then the machine should probably be taken to a professional for service.

Problem with feed dogs and thread catching


Hello Emma,

Hope this helps.
When the feed dogs are lowered they will not go up with just the switch. Try this, move the feed dog switch to the up position, then turn the handwheel 1 complete rotation. Voila they should be up. Let me know if it is solved. Chris

My fabric wasn't moving so I lowered the feed dogs and now I cannot raise them. The button in the back of the machine moves both ways but the feed dogs are not moving. They are staying in the down...


Hello

Turn off the power. Remove the accessory compartment located in front of the machine, if applicable.

Open the hook cover that shields the bobbin area. Please note that you do not need to remove the bobbin case.

Locate the drop feed lever near the bobbin case. Some machines have the lever towards the back of the free arm. Press down on the lever and then move it to the next notch or position. The raised metal feed dogs should be visible through the openings on the needle plate. You may need to rotate the big balance wheel one rotation to engage the mechanism on some machine models. The metal teeth will then spring up.

Close the hook cover. Insert the accessory compartment, if applicable.

Turn on the power. Try test stitching a piece of fabric. The raised feed dogs should help guide the fabric under the presser foot.

Try changing the needle sometimes over use causes burrs on the end of a needle and always remember to use proper needles to appropriate fabrics. Change needles frequently to avoid unnecessary wear on the feed dog teeth

Feed Dogs on Janome 1600P


I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC


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.
good luck!

Remove the needleplate and clean out the lint from between the teeth of the feeddogs........it is the most likely reason, the lint holds the feeddogs below where they need to engage fabric.

Check your Presser foot tension is at 3 then do a test.

If this is not sufficient the method of adjusting feeddogs is possible at home, tho perhaps not for those lacking some confidence in mechanical adjustment.......so post back for detail if needed.
