Manual sliding is not working for me. But I can unscrew the plate and lift the feed dogs with the screwdriver and it seems to run okay (until they drop again - then I still have to lift with the screwdriver

I've always been able to get a free PDF downloadable manual from
Janome. They are happy to send you a manual for your specific machine
via email, and they've always been very helpful to me. Here's a link
Hope this helps!

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.

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

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.
