Hi, Janome 124 - top thread picks up the bobbin thread, motor sounds good. Th feed dogs won't pull fabric (or paper) thru the machine - dogs don't stick up much above the plate. Help please! Jan

Remove the needle plate and clean the feed dogs with a brush...remove any lint and bits of thread.
A couple of drops of sewing machine oil might help to loosen the feed dogs up. (maybe let the oil seep in and then turn the handwheel towards yourself to help things along.
One other thought:
If your machine has feed dog lowering capability you might want to move that lever/switch back and forth a couple of times.
The feed dogs might not appear to raise or lower, but some machines will only re-engage raised feed dogs when the machine starts to stitch.

Also...verify that the presser foot tension isn't too strong/heavy...and temporarily try using a longer stitch length setting.

Raise and lower the feed dogs

the feed dogs are the saw toothed piece under the press foot
they go down move forward raise up move back in time with the needle to pull the material through for the next stitch
the amount of movement ( stitch length) is set by the position of the forward and reverse lever/ knob

Does this model have a feed dog that can be lowered for free motion quilting?

    A set of feed dogs typically resembles two or three short, thin metal bars, crosscut with diagonal teeth, which move back and forth in slots in a sewing machine's needle plate. Their purpose is to pull ("feed") the fabric through themachine, in discrete steps, in-between stitches.

Bar that sewng foot is attached to for raising & lowering suddenly will not drop sweing foot all the way down to plate. Any suggestions on how to fix?

Perhaps you accidently moved the switch that enables free hand embroidery? It's up and under next to the pressor foot lever. Slides forward and backward. Forward the pressor foot will go all the way down to the feed dogs. Slid back and it keeps the foot up off the feed dogs but allows the thread tension to work properly. It would be easy to accidently move it when operating the pressor foot raise/lower lever.

Pfaff expressions 3 feed dogs will not raise when switch is moved right

If the switch feel very easy to move then the linkage to the feed dogs is off somewhere. The machine will need to be opened and checked where and what.

Hand wheel not moving

Check bobbin area. Clean feed dogs with brush to remove lint balls & any loose threads. Use gentle back and forth motion on hand wheel to see if you can loosen debris. Be VERY gentle so you don't interfere with timing. Usually you will bring up one thread caught in feed dogs and you can sweep it out. If that's case here, I recommend inserting new needle, flat side back and make sure you raise presser foot before rethreading to open tension discs. Good luck. Jimmy

The teeth do not pull fabric thru, the teeth move only back/ forth. Is there an adjustment or part to replace, Jesse thanks.

I have limited knowledge but could the feed dogs be in the lower position? If so there should be a lever or slide button to raise them.

on my machine, as janome, there is a feed dog lever behind the bobbin are, and a pressure foot adjust on the top of the machine. But idf you have touched those perhaps something is catch in them and thats why it keeps happening ??
