Janome 109/110 which hasn't been well looked after!Cleaned, oiled etc and sewing fine now but feed dog lever won't move to drop dogs for FMQ. Any suggestions? Thank you


Most likely the feed dog mechanism was not lubed enough to overcome the old oil that has turned to glue. It is very common for mechanical machines not well maintained over years to have the feed dogs seize. Use liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube (hardware store or bike shop). Get access to the area around the feed dogs (either from underneath if it is a flat-bed machine or via the free arm). Gently wiggle the handwheel and watch where the feed dog mechanism moves. Apply a couple drops every place that metal rubs on metal. Move the feed-dog drop lever and apply a couple drops where metal parts rub there too. Direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanism, focusing on the feed dogs and the feed dog lever. You may need to alternate the lube and hot air several times until it begins to move freely. Repeat until things move well.

I've used this method on several older machines and it has always worked, although some machines take more work and time than others.

Error message asking to lower feed dogs before embroidering, feed dogs were lowered


Try raising and lowering the feed dogs a couple times there may be something in there that's tripping the sensor.

Feed Dogs


when the feed dogs are in the up position the sewing machine
will sew
but when the feed dogs are down postion it will darn
try the feed dog lever again if you can move the feed dog lever and
the feed dogs respond going up and down then you know that
the feed dogs are working and are not broke
but if they do not respond then they need to be checked to see what's
wrong with them

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.


Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

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.

Feed Dog problem


Here are some common reasons that the fabric won't feed:
1. Stitch length is set to zero, or machine is in button hole setting
2. Feed dogs are dropped (free motion setting)
3. Broken gears (typically in old singers)
4. Presser bar not coming down - may be bound up.
5. Lots of lint under the needle plate (in between the feed dogs) preventing feed dogs from raising.

Hope this helps.

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.
