Are you asking how to "drop" the feed dogs?

If your machine is similar to the 1260, the feed dog knob is on the lower right side (pg 14 of the 1260 manual):

Bernini 1090 feed dogs aren't feeding the fabric. They are way down.


Are you saying the feed dogs are not moving at all?

If the feed dogs are not moving at all, there's a good chance they have seized due to lack of oil. I'm more familiar with the 930s and older models, but I assume the 1090 probably needs periodic oiling on its mechanical parts. If nothing else, try directing hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism where the feed dogs are to see if that loosens it up.

How can i keep the feed dogs from dropping when I sew?


Need more info. What kind of Bernina are you using? Feed dogs normally go up and down when sewing to move the fabric forward. Is that what you mean? Or have you lowered the feed dogs to do free motion quilting or darning and now they stay down?

My machine has been in the basement for a while. Now my feed dog does not rise up high enough on my bernina patchwork 140 to catch the fabric. I did take the plate off and it is clean. Any suggestions?...


It seems strange that the feed dogs would change position while in storage. Are they moving at all?

They haven't been disenaged and lowered somehow, most machines have a switch or slide somewhere that disengages the feed dogs for freehand embroidery etc.

My bernina 1004 feed dogs wont move when switch is put into drop position.


Not completely sure about your B. 1004 but in my model Bernina, the feed dogs are lowered so the fabric can be moved by the operator, like when free-motion quilting. The feed dogs don't have contact with the fabric, there's no need to move.

Feed dogs won't work


Take your machine to an authorized Bernina dealer for service.

Proper service and care will ensure the value of the machine.

This brand holds it's value better than any other brand and always resells for good prices on Ebay.

You can check the Bernina website for dealers in your area.

I hav e Bernina 1150. When I attach the walking


Hi, when you quilt straight lines using the walking foot, you need the feed dogs up, to move the fabric in a straight direction under the needle. When you do free motion quilting, which is done with a darning foot, your hands move the fabric in many different directions. Since you want to be the one to move the fabric, you put the feed dogs down and you do the work. So when you use the walking foot, keep your feed dogs up. When you use the darning foot, feed dogs down.

Bernina 1130 feed dogs won't feed fabric


On a Bernina 1130 the power on-off knob and the feed dog raise and lower knob look similar and are next to each other on the end of the machine, making it easy to lower the dog assembly entirely, without realizing it. Make sure you didn't accidentally lower the entire feed dog assembly by turning the feed dog knob: you can tell as you turn it if the dogs are up or down. On the Bernina 1130 the knob, like the power should be in the horizontal position to be working both feed and power.
