I have a Memory Craft 7500 and the feed dogs won't come up. I tried the lever in the back and all it does is drop further. Any help would be appreciated.

Just a thought. Feed dogs generally do not raise until the handwheel is activated.

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: How do I drop the feed dog of my memory craft 9500 machine

The feed dog release is hidden below the needle plate. You need to, first, remove the detachable extension table & accessory storage at the bottom left side of your machine.

My feed dods have droped down how can we ajust them to raise them.

Usually when you slide the knob to drop the feed dogs they drop immediately. But when you switch the knob back to raise the feed dogs, they won't come up until you rotate the handwheel one revolution in the forward direction.

My feed dogs (Memory Craft 4000) won't come up after basting - which is like the emboirdery function. I too have cleaned lint from around the throat, bobbin casing, even removing the bottom plate, reset...

I have had this problem a few times, too. I have been able to get them back up by gently pushing them with my stiletto. Maybe not the best thing to do, but it worked.

I've forgotten how to drop the feed dogs-can you help

There is a little lever on the back of the free arm at the bottom. Push the lever to the right and that will lower the feed dog.

How do i lower the dog feed on my memorycraft 9000

there is a small lever at the back ( behind the bobbin case etc) that manually drops the feed dogs, also you can do it using the ADJ key. It should do it automatically when the embroidery mode or edit mode is pressed

Hi. Is there a free motion foot available for this model and can you lower the feed dogs?

Theanswer is yes and yes, you can purchase a free motion foot and there is a sliding button/lever on the back of the free arm just behind the needle plate that will lower the feed dogs, After the feed has been dropped and you want to re-engage them just flip the lever in the opposite direction and turn the machine one revolution and the feed will come back up,

Janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog

I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

Janome 8000 memory craft embroidery/sewing machine

on the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs.
When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!!
They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution.

The feed dog will rise as soon as you turn the handwheel one time. Just put the fabric in it and sew. It will come up automatically as long as you have moved the lever to the correct position.
