How do I raise and lower the feed dog

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. :-)

    I have a slide switch on the back side of the machine. When I slide it, it does nothing. Finally I removed the metal guide over the feed dog and lifted it with a screw driver. It will lower with the slide switch, but will not raise back to normal by using the slide switch. I wonder if something needs to be fixed.

    While I'm at it, can I use ribbon in the bobbin like I used to do with my Singers?

    Thanks

    Thanks so much for the reply. :-) It worked !!!! Now I can get the house cleaned really quick and finish these last 2 baby blankets for the grandkids :-) Thankfully I had the most embellished ones finished before this problem. In fact it is all the embroidery work that got me to this place. :-)

    I've had more help here than any other place I've searched or asked. Again, Thank You !!

    I am having the same problem, but I can't find ANYTHING that is like a button or anything that would raise or lower the feed dog. Any ideas?

    What is the balance wheel? I found the switch to drop the feed, but now I cannot get it back up. Thanks.

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
Rob

SOURCE: feed dog switch

Did you turn the handwheel? The feed teeth will not come up until the machine is operated. Run it a few stitches and they will come up.

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 ?

Can you raise feed dogs on elna su


It may depend on your particular model, but the Elna SP manual indicates there is a darning and button plate which means the feed dogs do not raise or lower.
Page 36:
ELNA SP Manual Page 23

Here are some tutorial videos that may be helpful:
Elna SU 62C Basics

At about minute 34 of the video, he puts the plate cover over the feed dogs so it is doubtful that your machine is any different.

I can not raise the feed dogs on my New Home Model SS2015 machine even when following instructions -- push lever in direction of arrow illustrated. Help! Thanks!!


On sewing machines, when you lower the feed dogs the machine lowers them immediately. However, when you RAISE them, you must turn the hand wheel TOWARDS you several times before you hear them click into place. ALWAYS turn the wheel towards you for anything.

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

My feed dogs will not pull my material through.


Check to be sure you have not inadvertently dropped the feed dogs on your machine. Dropped feed dogs are used for 'darning' or 'free motion quilting.' Below is info from Troubleshooting Manual:

Fabric does not feed through the machine
The feed dogs are lowered. Use the feed dog position switch to raise the feed dogs. 81
The stitches are too close together. Lengthen the stitch length. 42
The wrong presser foot was used. Attach the correct presser foot. 179
The needle is bent or blunt. Replace the needle with a new one. 34
The thread is tangled. Use scissors, etc., to cut the tangled thread and remove it from the race, etc.

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.

How do I raise and lower the feed dog on my singer 8280??


On your Singer, you don't actually raise / lower the feed dog. Instead you attach a "darning plate" (which should have come with the machine) which covers the feed dogs so they do not come in contact with the fabric. See a page from the owner's manual using this link within my web site: http://www.sewvac1.com/Singer3080_Feed_Drop.pdf

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.
