Question about Necchi 4595 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a Necchi 4795 and the feed dogs will not feed the fabric thru. It will however feed the fabric when I have the reverse button pushed in. Please help!
The older 6XXX series are the best machines Viking ever made. But they have one flaw - if the button hole mechanism is not regularly serviced and used, it will eventually stick and the machine will only sew in reverse. This can also happen if you turn the knob backwards when in button hole mode.
I always tell my customers to make a few button holes every time they use the machine. This helps to keep the mechanism free and working between servicing.
Unfortunately the fix is not a DIY consumer project. It requires knowledge and expertise in disassembling the machine and re-aligning the parts. Expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $75 in addition to the regular servicing fee.

SOURCE: how do you raise the feed dog
I realize this is a year too late, but maybe someone else can benefit from this answer... I have a 3204B and the feed dog is to the right of the bobbin area. It has red lettering on the face and requires a little umph to raise it.

Try moving the stitch length dial to 4 or 5 - check the manual. You may have it in the position for very close together sewing. I had to do a lot of trying with my 4795 to get it to work right. I found that very thin thread, polyester kind, broke at the needle after a couple of stitches. I switched to coats & clarks thread and a Singer ball point needle and it works fine. Be sure your needle is inserted with the flat top toward the back of the machine. Good luck!
