Re: Husquvarna Sewing Machine
Here is your problem and how to fix it...
Look under your machine. Follow the shaft from your feed dog button to a bullet shaped pin that goes through a hole. It needs cleaning and oiling and freeing up. Its frozen from non-use and the oil is hard. Free this up, WD-40 or just a good dowsing with oil and tap it until it lets go. Just work it little by little. It will go.

Hello: This may sound silly but do you use your FHS knee lifter? From what I am reading the FHS lowers the feed dogs automatically when used. If you aren't currently using the FHS, perhaps when you removed it, it was in the raised position.
I would check that and look under your bobbin area to see that there is nothing jammed in there. Barring that your best option is to call or take your machine into your qualified Bernina technician.
Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.
