Question about Baby Lock Ellure

Babylock ellure feed dog will not raise

Hi and Happy Holidays:)
I love my ellure machine, the embroidery work is just gorgeous but my feed dogs will not raise completely for sewing. I've "flicked" the feed dog switch to the correct position and turned the "wheel" towards me as instructed but still no progress. I love to embroider but need to sew at times to finish my quilts, make clothes etc. If someone could help me I would be eternally grateful.
Have a gorgeous day,

    Thank you for your suggestion.. I'm about ready to take my machine in, it needs a cleaning anyway. I was hoping I could do this myself but it looks like I may need a professional.
    Have a gorgeous day and Merry Christmas to you:)

    If the presser foot is up the feed dogs do move, but not when the presser foot is down. Tried adjusting presser tension without success.

When the embroidery unit is on the machine the "the feed dogs are raised lower them" comes on when I go to the embroidery edit or embroidery on my lcd screen and the feed dogs are down.

The problem you've explained isn't totally clear. I'll try to give help on your problem.
On embroidery machines the feed dogs are suppose to be down while operating in the embroidery mode.
When you change programs to embroidery the sewing machine recognizes this mode and automatically makes the feed dogs go into the down position.
If you are attempting to operate embroidery and your feed dogs don't go under the plate then: Try the switch that is under the storage unit and switch it to free arm.

Feed dog on singer m756 won't pop up

If this is a combo embroidery and sewing machine, the feed dogs have a switch to raise or lower them. If this is just a sewing machine, your feed dog linkage may be broken.

Singer futura xl-400 should the feed dogs be disengaged when embroidering

ABSOLUTELY! The XL models of embroidery machines are supposed to automatically lower when you put the embroidery unit on, but I have had an XL-400 and currently have an XL-550 and Quintet, and I have noticed on the latter two that the feed dogs have not always automatically lowered. Incidentally, to lower or raise the feed dogs, the lever (it's in the back) goes DOWN and OVER. If you are having problems getting it move, use a straight blade screwdriver and pop the little tip off--it's not necessary to operating the feed dogs.

Also incidentally, when you raise the feed dogs, you have to turn the hand wheel towards (ALWAYS towards you for anything) several times to get the feed dogs to actually pop up. You'll hear when it does that. They lower right away, though.

Someone left a virtually NEW Singer Quantum LE, Model SX, sewing machine in the garage of the house we bought (Everything looks to be in pristine condition, even the needle pack is unopened). I am trying...

Oh, lucky you! I'm envious!

No, the stitch length will not have any effect on the feed dog, ever. Check the instructions for raising and lowering the feed dog. I believe on your model, you need to remove the sewing table arm (the manual will show you how) and the control should be on the lower left hand side. What probably happened is that the person who used it last was doing embroidery with the machine. You leave the feed dog down when doing embroidery and let the embroidery arm direct the fabric and embroidery hoop. Thus, you have to raise the feed dog again to go back to regular stitching.

I have a different Singer embroidery machine than your model, but they are similar. If you need more help, let me know. I'll upload pictures or a video showing you what I have to do. But the manual should get you through it quite well.

Happy sewing, and learn about embroidery. Do some google searches and check out some sewing magazines on machine embroidery. You have a goldmine at your disposal that will do gorgeous work on embellishing your clothes, home decor, all kinds of things. There are a lot of beautiful designs not just to buy, but free downloads as well. Learn about the machine and what it can do. You're a lucky woman-that machine sells for over $1000, I believe!

I have forgotten the settings to set the differential feed on my babylock 5380E

The differntial feed is usually set on N. If you move the lever up, you gather. If you move it down, the fabric will lettuce. These things happen because there are two sets of feed dogs feeding at different rates.

Feed dog won't come back up after embroidery is done and ready to sew normal. How to fix it?

You must slide the feed dog up/down switch over (consult your manual).

If you slide the switch over, the feed dogs will not come up. It is only when the machine makes a full rotation that the mechanism engages and the feed dogs return to the sewing position.

If the feed dogs will still not raise, then you will need to take it to your dealer.

How do I raise and lower the feed dog

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:
