Question about Sewing Machines
The feed dog control is on the back of the sewing machine's free arm.
To see a diagram, here is a downloadable copy of the user's manual (link below). The feed dog instructions are on page 12.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: feed dog problem.
Open the bobbin case door and there should be a lever sitting off to the right. It moves from left to right. For the feed dogs to be in the up position the lever should be to the left.

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.

you can download the manual at: http://www.costco.com/images/content/misc/pdf/334599_instructions.pdf. This site is fairly stupid and won't let me cut & paste the URL so copy it carefully.

On your Singer, you don't actually raise / lower the feed dog. Instead you attach a "darning plate" (which should have come with the machine) which covers the feed dogs so they do not come in contact with the fabric. See a page from the owner's manual using this link within my web site: http://www.sewvac1.com/Singer3080_Feed_Drop.pdf

They do not drop.
The accessories with this model include a darning plate, which is a plastic shield that snaps over the feed dogs.
If you cannot find the darning plate, poke a hole for the needle in the center of an index card and tape it over the feed dogs with blue painter's tape (does not leave a residue) and set the stitch length to zero.
Be sure to use a darning foot and lower the presser foot.
