I am not a vet but my GSD had pannus which is incurable. Corticsteroids were prescribed to treat it. Keeping out of bright sunlight often helped

How do I drop the feed dogs on my Brother sewing machine?

Altho I don't have your model, most of the Brother sewing machines have a slider kind of button on the back of the machine right in back of the needle assembly. So you push it to one side and voil? ! the feed dogs are dropped down. Don't forget to put them back up when you need them again :-)

I have a brother XL 5130 should I have either a plate or lever to drop the feed dogs? I also misplaced my manual can you send me the English ssection thanks Barbara

This machine does not have a feed dog drop, but it does include a feed dog cover that covers them so you can do free motion. The cover is a little piece of black plastic that kind of resembles this: 3d18346.png

Here is the link to the manual,
Let me know if you need more help, Chris

Is there a way to drop feed dogs on My Excel 4023? I thought there was but I seem to have forgotten how to do this. Please help!

The drop feed lever is located underneath the free arm bed at the back. To raise the feed dogs, push the lever to the right. To drop them push it to the left. Hope this helps!

My thread gets stuck down in the bobbin area.

Ensure that you are threaded correctly, set your tension for roughly 4.5 and "floss" your machine when threading by grabbing the thread by the needle immediately prior to threading the needle with your left hand, and the thread on the top by the spool with your right hand; then pull the thread back and forth briefly.
Ensure that your bobbin is in the bobbin case in the correct orientation.
Ensure that your feed dogs are in the "up" position. Many inexpensive machines do not have the option to drop the feed dogs, and I believe your kenmore to be one that lacks the option, but consult your manual just to be sure.
Also make sure you're using a good quality thread. Use a European thread, and definitely avoid anything from the dollar bin or any kind of "dual duty" type thread. Cheap thread causes nasty nasty things to happen to sewing machines.

If none of these fixes solves your problem, let me know; but going through the above will solve 99% of problems like you're describing.

Good luck,

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233

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.

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233

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!
