Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!

You probably have a bind in the feed dog mechanism. If you can remove the covers and manually force them down you will see the hinge points that need to be oiled.
Unplug first!
Good luck.

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

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

SOURCE: How to Drop Feed Dogs on Sewing Machine...

On many machines you tilt the machine back on its hinges to see the underside and there you will find a thumbscrew to lower the feed dogs...you also need to be sure that your machine is capable of having its feed dogs lowered...not all machines can do this!

Yesterday, while machine quilting, I heard a clank. Now the feed dogs won't feed the fabric. The feed dogs seem to move back when I start sewing; it seems as if they stayed forward before...


Did you check to make sure the feed dogs weren't inadvertently dropped. Most sewists drop the feed dogs for free motion quilting or darning.

How do i lower the feed dog for free motion sewing??


Oooh, consult your owner's manual. Frequently, industrial machines are limited in their capabilities so your machine may not have the feed dog lowering ability. Some other domestic machines without the capability can use a plate to cover the feed dogs while free motion quilting, but that probably wouldn't be a good thing to try if your machine is not made for sewing without the feed dogs in use.

I have an Elna 2730. the feed dog is not transporting the fabric anymore and the needle just keeps stitching in the same place. is it broken or just needs adjusting?


if you have a manual, look to see where the feed dogs are, if the lever for the feed dogs is in the up position then the machine will sew a straigh stitch
if the feed dog lever is in the down position then it will only stay in one spot,
if you try to push the lever up and it will not stay or stays and will not sew then the feed dogs need to be checked

The feed dogs are not moving. First time use


here are 2 links for a manual, just incase you don't have one

http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/36952a1312a6d8436174ef874f3662471a946b64.pdf

check in the manual to see where the feed dogs are, see if the lever for the feed dog are in the up position so the machine will sew, it the lever is down,try pushing it the other way,if it will not go up and stay in position then the sewing machine needs to be checked to see if what's wrong with the feed dogs.

if it's a new sewing machine and the feed dogs won't work then take it back and get another one.

Machine sewing in one spot won't move and cotton jamming up


sounds like the feed dogs are in the down position, do you have a
manual for the machine that you can look at to see where the
feed dog lever is at and move it in the opposite direction,
if you don't have a manual, send me a commment with the name
and model number of the machine and I'll try to help you find a manual

The machine won't stitch anything...


check the feed dogs in the needle plate area to see if there up,
if you can see them & touch them with your finger, I'm putting in a link
for a free manual, so you can see where the lever is to the feed dogs, just
incase they are not up. if they are up then they may need to be checked
to see why they aren't moving the fabric.

Can you tell me how to lower the feed dogs on my Brother XR-52 for free motion sewing?


You use your feed dog cover, it is a plastic cover you put over your feed dogs. Your manual will show you, if you do not have your manual go to www.brother-usa.com and select support, home sewing & embroidery group, then select your manual, you can then download your manual for free
