It's been a while since I have owned a series 2000 Husqvarna, but from memory there is a little white (?) button on the lower right-hand side - near the knob for stitch width - it has a notch on the underside. Push the button in, push it in a downward motion and the notch should catch on the edge of the hole and stay there (in other words the notch "disappears" inside the hole). The feed dogs will be lowered. To raise them, push in the button again and let it lift up and then outwards (you see the notch again). Turn the handwheel once and the feed dogs pop up.

Husqvarna 2000 SL having trouble straight stitching fabric wont feed through - if does if I go backwards, any suggestions

make sure the machine is not in the darn position,, if it's in the sew position then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see if there is something wrong with the feed dog,, cause the feed dogs are suppose to move the fabric through so the needle can sew it

How to lower feed dogs

The white dial to lower the feed dogs is hidden on front of the machine behind the accessory tray, if you pull the accessory tray off, you will see the dial on the bottom edge of the machine, under and to the right of the bobbin housing. Hope this helps, had to search for it myself a few times... :)

Feed Dogs do not feed the fabric to sew or embroidery

You have probably inadvertantly lowered the feed dogs. Find the lever for this machine and turn it to re engage the feed dogs....

I can not remember how to lower the feed dogs on my Husqvarna quilt designer and I can not find my manual

I think the Quilt Des. is the same as the Designer 1 (which is what I have) and the lower feed dogs is a serrated dial (looks like part of a circle sticking out of the machine) located on the lower front of the free arm about 2 inches to the right of in line with the needle. You turn the dial towards the left to lower the feed dogs and to the right to raise them.

Feed dog switch

Did you turn the handwheel? The feed teeth will not come up until the machine is operated. Run it a few stitches and they will come up.

Machine works but doesnt move forward

Could be that the feed dog is in the down position. The feed dog consists of serrated sections which move together under the fabric and move it under the needle. Run the machine unthreaded and you should see the serrated sections lift above the needle plate, move forward and then drop again. If this doesn't happen the "drop feed dog" knob on the front of the machine could be pushed in. Look for a small knob about 1/2 inch across on the right front of the machine. Push on it and move it sideways at the same time. If it pops out this means that the feed dog is now up and you should be able to sew.
