Feed dogs up?


If the feed dog lever does not raise the feed dogs, then they are probably stuck. Probably needs lubrication. Since the make/model was not specified, would recommend taking it for service.

Not sure if this model has a Feed Dog switch. May be located in area covered by storage portion of sewing bed. May be located on back side of freearm area will be indicated by multiple triangles near the switch.

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.


Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).

My feed dogs will not come up into position


Some machines have to take a stitch for the mechanism to "pop" back into place, I don't really know if your brother is like that but try to sew with it and see if they click back into place.

Feed dogs stuck in down position


The feed dogs come up as soon as you start sewing again. Just make sure they're in the up position and start sewing.

Feed dogs stuck in down position


that the feed dog lever is in the up position. When the lever is in the down position, the feed dogs will show on the top if there is no pressure on them at all. Make sure that the machine makes one complete cycle to check this. Just throwing the switch does not make them come to the surface.

If this does not work, then the feed gear is broken and you will need to take it to a mechanic.

Feed Dog on Brother 270d stuck in up position


I finally figured this out. The feed dog switch in the back was not hitting anything when I moved it back and forth. There is a screw on the underside of the machine that I tightened. It seemed to do the trick. Thanks.

Feed dogs


I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D
