Question about Janome Memory Craft 5700
I can't even find in the manual to raise and lower the feed dog. It does tell you on page 42 to be sure to lower it for embroidery. But, how. I'm really not as dumb as I sound. But, I sure feel like it. :-)
If you look at the back of the machine you should see the button that will let you lower the feed dog. It looks like you slide the button one way to lower and then the other way to raise the feed dog.
To make it a bit easier just go to the following web site and move down to the pictures as there is one showing the back of the machine. The button would be on your right:

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

Raise feeddogs with switch, then turn handwheel one full revolution to re-engage the gear......unless something is jammed, that should do it. Do you have your manual ?

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.
