Question about Brother XR7700
I hope this makes sense. I took the plates off to clean my machine, and when I put them back on it wasn't feeding anymore. I noticed the lever to change the height is not activating a change as well. My husband and I have both looked at it, but no luck. We thought he fixed the lever issue, but when I tried to use it again, the dogs wouldn't feed. They are raise, just not feeding. The lever is not raising and lowering correctly. How do I fix it?
The feed dogs on that machine (and many others) do not go back up when you move the feed dog drop button to up; they return to the up (feeding) position after the machine makes a stitch or two. So if they won't come back up after you tinkered with them, you will now need to bring it in for servicing.

I would take it back to the repair shop with some of your samples and the "mess" in place so they can sort it out for you.......after all, you have paid them to do a service and should have a 30 or 90 day warrantee implicit in that arrangement.
I suggest you phone first to arrange to meet (with the tech too if possible) and outline your concerns, they do have a responsibility to you.
Whenever this happens to me (rare thankfully) I give the machine priority and generally talk it through with the customer and try a sew test with them present so we can see what is happening then and there.
I would not advise you to "play around" inside as it will void any warrantee.

Remove the needle plate and clean the lint from between the teeth of feeddogs, also around and inside bobbin case.
The switch for the feeddogs is to raise (normal sewing) or lower (free motion) and if there is no difference, the accumulated lint will have made a felt pad between the teeth forcing the feeddogs to stay down and present with the problem you describe.
When things go a little "weird", the common instinct is OIL EVERYTHING............DON'T DO IT !!! ....this is rarely the solution on its own account, and can make the servicing a great deal longer as the excess must be removed........little oil regularly, not a bucketful every 5 years is a better approach.

SOURCE: feed dog wont feed the fabric
Remove the needleplate and clean between the teeth of the feeddogs.
Ensure the feeddogs are not lowered for free motion sewing.
Don't know the make/model to be any more specific, so post back here or to the Contact Us page at www.bargainbox.com.au if there is more to do.

Some machines have to take a stitch for the mechanism to "pop" back into place, I don't really know if your brother is like that but try to sew with it and see if they click back into place.

SOURCE: I have a brother CS6000.
The lever/button is simply a mechanical arm attached/sliding into the frame on one side and the other on the foot of the feed dog with screws or pins - they must allow the lever to rotate and slide a little. It should be firmly attached - no wobbles - and the movement between positions should be firm - a spring is used to lock it in position (up and down).
If it's wobbly and it moves easily without snapping in position then the mechanism is broken - you must open the back and see if the feet and the securing spring are still attached to the command lever/button. If not then you must reinsert the pin and find out why it has slipped out.
