SOURCE: feed dog is stuck
I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.

SOURCE: problem with trac feeds
When you drop the feed dogs on most modern machines they do not return to the up position until the motor rotates one full turn. Your feed dog will then be up and ready to use.

SOURCE: feed dogs stuck in down position
that the feed dog lever is in the up position. When the lever is in the
down position, the feed dogs will show on the top if there is no
pressure on them at all. Make sure that the machine makes one complete
cycle to check this. Just throwing the switch does not make them come
to the surface.
If this does not work, then the feed gear is broken and you will need to take it to a mechanic.

Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).
