According to the manual, there is an accessory that covers the feed dogs. (Shown as an accessory on page 4.) So the feed dogs should not raise or lower other then during normal sewing action of moving the fabric.

SOURCE: feed dogs

If the machine has a 'darn' facility and this is selected the feed dogs 'will' stay down.

Other than that(without looking) i would guess a good clean and a dose of lubrication would not go amiss.

Try removing the needle plate to see of there is any compacted "fluff/lint" or indeed anything else stopping the dogs rising. Take off the bottom access cover have a good clean out and oil.
Best of luck

SOURCE: Raising and Lowering the feed dog on Janome 4900 MC

These machines are known to have this problem. The feed lift cam has a groove worn in it that won't allow the feed dogs to come back up. It is on the lower shaft and needs to be replaced. You can get the feed dogs back up by taking off the needle plate and lifting them up manually while turning the hand wheel. They should stay up until you drop them again.
Some people will not replace the cam and live with it.
good luck!

SOURCE: Feed dogs won't raise up again

Hi,
The Kenmore is made by Janome. The Janome has a little cam (lever) that when flipped, is pushed out of the way so the feed dogs will drop down. Over time (read too long between thorough cleaning and oiling), the cam will stick over where it is pushed. It is physically pushed when dropping the feed teeth, but it when you flip the lever back, it relys only on a spring for it to pop back. It only has one spot in a complete hand wheel rotation to pop back, and if it sticks at all, it wants to stay down.
Solution:
Hold the feed dogs up while turning the handwheel. This can help it pop up. If that doesn’t work, remove the two bottom screws under the free arm and look for the cam. It like the on the very end of the machine even left and further back from hook. As you turn the handwheel, you’ll see it rotate as a lopsided wheel on the shaft. Gently push it right while you turn the handwheel. Then clean and oil it so it will move more freely

SOURCE: feed dogs

I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D

SOURCE: The feed dogs on my Singer model 7444 will not

This may not be a simple job as "plastic" machines have to be snapped apart and back together just right.

The problem could be at the switch or somewhere between the switch and feed dogs.

Check with a Singer dealer for an estimate for the repairs before you take it apart and find you cannot get it back together.

Singer touch tronic 2000 feed dog will not advance fabric


Confirm the feed dogs are raised. Make sure the feed dog teeth, area under the needle plate and the bobbin area are clean of any debris, thread, or buildup. Some machines also have a presser foot pressure adjustment that increases the pressure the presser foot applies to the feed dogs. The feed dogs could be worn (never run the sewing machine without fabric between the presser foot & feed dogs).

https://www.manualslib.com/manual/508740/Singer-Athena-2000.html

Or, the machine has not had a thorough cleaning and oiling recently and the feed dogs are sticking from old oil.

How do I get the feed dog up on model 6235


The feed dog for that machine is NOT designed to be raised or lowered; instead a cover is put over the needle plate. You might want to remove the needle plate--it's designed to be removed to access the bobbin case--and see if you can pop it up again. On models that DO have the ability to raise and lower their feed dogs, once it has been lowered, if you press the dial or lever to raise it, it won't raise until the hand wheel is turned one or two times.

Feed dog on singer m756 won't pop up


If this is a combo embroidery and sewing machine, the feed dogs have a switch to raise or lower them. If this is just a sewing machine, your feed dog linkage may be broken.

Singer 758 model and the material is not feeding through the machine. Needle is only going up and down in one spot.


here is a link for a free manual, check to see if the feed dog lever is up in the sewing position, if the feed dog lever is down then try to raise it up. if it will not raise then the machine needs to be check to see what's wrong with the feed dog.

Singer Sewing Machine model #2638 Does not feed fabric


Here is a link to page 22 of the manual. It shows you where to flip the lever to raise the feed dogs. If your feed dogs are not grabbing fabric your feed dogs are lowered.

How do I raise and lower the feed dog on my singer 8280??


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

h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.
