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
Rob

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: I have a Singer Stylist 513 & I cannot get the feed dogs raised.

The model 513 Singer has two gears which operate the feeding mechanism. If one of these gears is broken, the machine will run except the feed dogs will not move. This is a very common problem with this model.

I lowered the feed dogs on my Juki TL-2010Q to free motion quilt and they won't raise. I cleaned under the throat plate. Help?


Have you tried sewing with it since you "raised" the feed dogs? The feed dogs will not raise until you begin to stitch.

Can't get plate screw loose. My feed dogs won't come back up


Difficult to respond without knowing the make & model.

Removing the needle plate generally will not allow you to raise the feed dogs. There is a lever, knob, or something on the machine that should raise the feed dogs. Frequently, access to the actual feed dogs is through the door to the bobbin mechanism.

Feed dogs will not raise up to feed the material. I checked and the position on the back is in raised position


if the feed dogs are in the raised position then the feed dogs need to be checked to see if they need a adjustment or need to be replaced

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

How do i raise the feed dogs on my singer 30215 machine


Slide of the the little table with the accessories in.There is a feed dog adjustment lever at the back of the machine. sliding the lever to the 2 filled in arrows pointing down, will lower them and the 2 filled in arrows pointing up will raise them. The feed dogs will not rise up if you do not turn the hand wheel manually, even if the lever is slid to the right.You must make a complete turn of the wheel to raise the feed dogs.
Best wishes.

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.

Feed dogs will not raise, I have lifted the presser foot, pushed the feed dog lever to the raised positon and turned the handwheel till i heard the click. They still will not snap into place in the raissed...


Hello

First, lift the presser foot; next, push the feed dog lever to the raised position; finally, turn the handwheel towards you until you hear the feed dogs snap into place

If it doesn't, you will have to run a maintenance check on your feed dogs,

Unplug the machine and examine the feed dogs. The newer machines have metal feed dogs, but older models may have rubber ones, which often need replacing. Examine the feed dogs and check for damage.

Remove the throat plate, which is the covering over the feed dogs, and clean it with a soft cloth. Use a small soft brush to clean the feed dogs. Make sure to remove all lint and thread from the grooves of the teeth. Some machines have an adjustment that lowers the feed dogs for specific sewing procedures. They should be in the raised position for better viewing during the cleaning process.

Clean the area around the feed dogs with a soft brush. Compressed air is a good choice to use in the small tight areas.

Wipe down all areas with a clean, lint free cloth before replacing the throat plate.

Prepare to clean the feed dogs and all other areas that lint may accumulate on, after every project. Your sewing machine will last longer and need fewer repairs if kept clean and lint free.

Always unplug the sewing machine before any type of maintenance or cleaning.

Never use a sharp tool when cleaning the feed dogs as this may cause damage to the sewing machine.
