6235 singer ! How do I raise feed dogs ???


According to the manual, there is an accessory that covers the feed dogs. (Shown as an accessory on page 4.) So the feed dogs should not raise or lower other then during normal sewing action of moving the fabric.

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.

I purchase a free motion feet but it says to do so you have to lower the feed dog does the 7422 have a button to lower the feed dog and where it is located because i could not find onew can i do free...


You don't actually have to lower your feed dogs, lots of people FMQ without lowering, or you can tap a small piece of heavy paper (like an index card) over your dogs and poke a hole in the paper for your needle to go through which effectively takes the feed dogs out of commission too.

Lower feed dogs


had a quick look at the manual for this at www.singer.com and I'd say your machine doesn't have the function to lower the feed dogs, many don't. It shows a darning plate which goes over the feed dogs to sew on buttons so if you are wanting to do free motion embroidery or similar, then use this plate to cover up the feed dogs.

I have a singer 543 the feed dogs won't move.


I suggest getting out your manual and looking up lower and raising the feed dogs. When the feed dogs are lowered they don't move. You could have lowered them without realising it.

I own the singer advance 7442 and want to lower the feed dogs in order to use a quilting foot to machine quilt.However I don't have my manual and I need to know how to lower my feed dogs.Can you help me...


The 7442 does not have feed dogs which can be dropped. You need to use the "Darning Plate" which came with the accessories.

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
