To Drop or Raise the Feed Dogs To drop the feed dogs, press the lever in the direction of the arrow, (it is a vertical metallic bar at the right side of of the shuttle area) To raise the feed dogs, push the lever in the direction of the arrow, and turn handwheel towards you. Feed dogs must be up for normal sewing..

You need to complete one full revolution of handwheel to re-engage feeddogs....or there is lint trapped under needleplate...clean it out !!

SOURCE: My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric
Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

SOURCE: feed dog not pulling fabric
First, remove the needle plate and using a small screwdriver, clean the packed lint from in between the teeth.This will allow the teeth to go up.
