Kenmore Sewing Machine Model 385.16221 feed dog is stuck down,m the lever just does nothing. It lowered feed dog, then was useless when I went to raise it to position.

your machine will have a flip type opening at the very front of your machine above the area where the needles are attached to the arm that moves up and down ( it usually has the light globe installed in there ) after opening that door you will see where the dog feed is attached to it should also have a spring that helps the dog feed return to the up position when not in use , make sure it is not stuck in any way and some lubrication oil should be used to prevent it from sticking , while using the dog feed release button push the spring in a up and down motion to help it to dislodge

My Bernina 440 QE feed dogs won't come back up. Lowered them and now when I push the button they will not re engage.

Try turning the hand wheel through a full rotation. Do this after you press the button and it returns to the engage feed dogs position.

This works on many sewing machines. If the feed dogs remain down, then you may need to have the machine serviced. There is a possibility that a part broke or a linkage is stuck between the button on the hand wheel and the feed dogs.

I hope this helps.

Janome 3050 feed dogs wont come back up

Dropping the Feed Dog
The feed dog can be lowered with the drop-feed lever for sewing on buttons etc.
  • Shift the drop-feed lever to the right to lower the feed dog.
  • Shift the lever to the left to raise the feed dog, it will return to the up position when the machine is started.

NOTE:The feed dog should be in the up position for regular sewing. Turn the handwheel toward you to check if the feed dog comes up after setting the lever in the up position

Bernina feed dog down and will not return to normal position by switch

1. Clean and lubricate entire machine following the MANUAL instructions.
2. Try to "lower" it again then try to raise it - several times.
If this does not solve it, see a service person.

manually rotate the handwheel a few times after deselecting the feeddog drop. if this doesn't work, take the machine to an authorized Viking for evaluation.

The feed dog on my singer heavyduty machine will not come back up

open the trap and inspect it for something that would hinder the return of the dog. a peice of fabric or even lint will deter the dog from returning to its upright sometimes.

My automatic buttonhole attachment won't make

This is not the problem of the thickness, but of the softness. Fleece will pull unevenly, causing the dogs to simply tug at layers of it in place, instead of moving it. You will have to (GENTLY) assist the dogs in moving your fabric, if your fabric is this soft.

The cause of this is 90% on the fault of the fabric, and 10% on the way the buttonholer foot works. The foot is built to hold the fabric fast in place, with sliding action only permitted by the buttonhole guide. However, this is assuming the dogs can get enough purchase to move the fabric around. Simply put, again, you will have to help the dogs along with this one(you will be able to clearly feel the difference and which way the dogs "Should" be moving at the time when you attempt to, as once it catches in one direction, it is likely to keep going in that direction until the dogs stop.)

Spring not connected behind bobbin casing

It is most likely the feed dog return spring. A cam lifts the feed dogs up and the spring pulls them back down. It hooks to the feed dogs bracket and goes straight down to the machine frame, there should be a small hook or post for it. You may be able to sew slowly without it attached.
good luck!

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.
