Could be any of a multitude of reasons.

Check whether the feed dogs are actually rising 'above' the needle plate. If not, then they may be in a dropped position used for darning and free motion quilting.

Sometimes the feed dogs and the mechanism underneath is jammed with lint and debris. Make sure the dog teeth are well cleaned. Also check if the tips of the teeth are worn. Also verify that the needle plate is flush with the free arm--if it is raised, it will prevent the feed dogs from doing their job.

The other thing to check is whether the machine has a presser foot pressure adjustment. Some machines have it, others do not. On newer machines, it is usually a dial somewhere around the left side of the head or toward to top of the head. On older machines, unfortunately, some are simply a big screw head on the inside of the case directly above the presser foot bar. It basically applies more pressure to the presser foot, which in turn applies more pressure to the feed dogs. The problem will usually show up when sewing either very heavy or very fine fabric. Perhaps trying a different presser foot will make a difference.

I don't know what is the highest number the stitch length goes to on your machine, but a #2 stitch length is pretty short on mine. Try setting it higher.

I had that problem when the machine was not threaded correctly. I now floss the thread back and forth through the tension area everty time I thread the machine, to make sure the thread is in the right place.

How about the switch. Try to change position. Should bring them up. They moving just lowered. If they not moving you need repair or a machine.
