Take the machine back & get another one or ask them to have the machine fixed.

SOURCE: feed dogs

If the machine has a 'darn' facility and this is selected the feed dogs 'will' stay down.

Other than that(without looking) i would guess a good clean and a dose of lubrication would not go amiss.

Try removing the needle plate to see of there is any compacted "fluff/lint" or indeed anything else stopping the dogs rising. Take off the bottom access cover have a good clean out and oil.
Best of luck
Rob

Raise feeddogs with switch, then turn handwheel one full revolution to re-engage the gear......unless something is jammed, that should do it. Do you have your manual ?

SOURCE: 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!

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!

SOURCE: 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.

How do I raise the feed dos


Consult your owner's manual. There is a switch, lever, or knob somewhere on your machine that raises the feed dogs. If they are stuck in the down position and your machine is mechanical, could very well be it has seized due to lack of cleaning and oiling.

I can't get my feed dogs to raise. Is there a screw adjustment?


Chances are, your feed dogs raise just fine, but here's the problem. In addition to raising it with the lever, button, or dial, you have to bring the hand wheel TOWARDS you (ALWAYS towards you for ANYTHING) at least one or two revolutions before it will raise and snap into place.

This is true of every machine of every model, by the way, and I have a friend that brought a brand new Brother dirt-cheap from WalMart that was being sold as defective because the feed dogs wouldn't raise. She got it home, flipped the lever, turned the hand wheel two revolutions, and . . . VIOLA! She got a perfectly good brand new machine for practically nothing!

I have a singer 543 the feed dogs won't move.


I suggest getting out your manual and looking up lower and raising the feed dogs. When the feed dogs are lowered they don't move. You could have lowered them without realising it.

Feed dogs won't move


No info on the sewing machine make or model. It sounds like something is binding up, is bent, or is tangled in the machine. Look around the front and back of the sewing area for a switch to lower the feed dogs.

Good luck

My feed dods have droped down how can we ajust them to raise them.


Usually when you slide the knob to drop the feed dogs they drop immediately. But when you switch the knob back to raise the feed dogs, they won't come up until you rotate the handwheel one revolution in the forward direction.
