Question about Husqvarna Designer I
Hi! I just bought a well loved Husqvarna Designer I from my local quilt shop today. I have been reading the manual and getting to know my new machine. It sews great, however I can not get the feed dogs to lower. I looked at the manual, took the extension bed off and flipped the little switch on the fron of the bed to the left, but nothing happens. I did this while the machine was on and also while it was off (the manual did not specify which was, so I tried both). Is this problem new operator error or is there something wrong with the feeddog lever. Thanks!
Its likely this machines feedogs have either never been lowered or not lowered for a long time. Thus the old oil has hardend and is causing the mechanism to freeze up. A tech would take the bottom cover off, follow the connections from the lowering knob, button or switch to the feeddogs and putting a bit of oil or penetrant on each moving connection. Don't force anything, gently tap where you beleive its sticking and turn, push or flip the switch, knob or button slowly bit by bit, back and forth until they drop. They will work loose then make sure they get a bit of oil again. Hope this helps. Good luck.
