SOURCE: feed dog is stuck

I have the same problem...this is a work around, not a fix. You need a small flat-head screwdriver. 1. Remove the clear bobbin cover. 2. Make sure the feed dog switch is in the DOWN position. 3. Slide the screwdriver under the feeddogs from inside the bobbin area & lift the feed dogs. 4. While holding the feed dogs in the up position, return the feed dog knob to the up position. You have to do this every time you put the feed dogs down...bummer, but I can find no broken part or adjustment that corrects this. If it's inside the machine body, I don't mess with it... I did take off the bottom plate in the feed dog area..one screw holds it.... there is nothing there to indicate a problem.

SOURCE: Feed dogs do not come back up after lowering

Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.

SOURCE: Brother Super Galaxie 2100 - Feed dogs will not lift

Remove needleplate and clean out the built up lint between the teeth of the feeddogs.
When moveng from Feed Down to Up, rotate handwheel one revolution to re-engage.
If neither is a problem and your manual is of no assistance, take it to a service centre to check it out and quote.

SOURCE: Feed dog lever not working on my Kenmore 385 24 stitch machine

I surfed around this site for various suggestions, finally took the bottom plate off and cleaned and oiled all the parts along that rod that goes right across (think it's a drive bar that rotates). Ran the machine without thread in for a few minutes to let the oil soak in. Machine now works fine.

SOURCE: The dog feed stuck in the downward position.

When you set the switch for the feed dogs to be in the up position, turn the handwheel 1 complete revolution and they should come up.

How do I raise the feed dogs in a Brother LS2125 sewing machine as they seem to be lowered?


Perhaps you will find the answer here:

LS 2125 2125i 2129 United States Brother Solutions Center

FWIW, the manual indicates that your feed dogs do not lower. Instead, you are provided with an accessory that covers the feed dogs when you wish to use the machine without feed dogs.

How do I lower the feed dog on a Brother LX3125?


Look on the back of the machine near the feed dogs for a lever to lower them.
If there is none then you need a feed dog cover (or darning plate) that goes over the needle plate.
good luck!

Brother XL 5130. I just got this machine and the feed dogs seem to be in the 'down' position, although I can't find a lever anywhere to move them up. In some of the forum, it suggests that


http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_XL_5130_5232_5340_EN_208.PDF

Look up "darning" and it shows a feed dog cover so that means this machine does not have dropping feed dogs.

Now that that is out of the way... most machines have the ability to adjust the height of the feed dogs. But without seeing your machine I can't advise you. It might be better to go have the machine adjusted and serviced.

My Brother LS1217 does seem to be feeding the material properly


Are the feed dogs in the down position? There should be a lever in front or in back of the needle area..you may have to remove the freearm to find it. Once you flip that switch, you have to turn the hand wheel towards you almost a full turn to make the feed dogs pop back up.

If they are up & not moving...then something is caught in them...a bit of lint or thread probably.

Hi Jodyk...Remove your flatbed so you can access your bobbin area. Open the cover of the bobbin area. The shiny/bright components consist of the Bobbin, which snaps into the Shuttle Hook, which is contained in the Race. Immediately right of the Race is a pewter/matte silver colored lever. Press the lower portion of the lever to raise the Feed Dogs. Pressing the upper portion drops the Feed Dogs, and is commonly used to accomplish free-hand applique work......good luck my friend.
