You probably have a bind in the feed dog mechanism. If you can remove the covers and manually force them down you will see the hinge points that need to be oiled.
Unplug first!
Good luck.

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.
Good luck.

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

I was having trouble with this too, but found more help online...you have to switch the dog feed back to 'up'....then turn the needle wheel toward you....the feed dog should snap back into place :)
Hope this helps :D

On many machines you tilt the machine back on its hinges to see the underside and there you will find a thumbscrew to lower the feed dogs...you also need to be sure that your machine is capable of having its feed dogs lowered...not all machines can do this!

Kenmore sewing machine feed dog


Probably it is the spring loaded cam on the lower shaft not moving as it is bound up. The feed drop lever pushes it to the left to lower the feed dogs, but it has to spring back on its own after you move the lever back.
If you can remove the lower free arm cover you may be able to work it loose. Do not use 3 in 1 oil as it is gummy. Better to get Lilly white sewing machine oil.
Hope that helps!

Hi Jason. I wonder if you have your feed dogs lowered. It's near the bobbin area.

Here's a pdf of your manual. It talks about "drop feed" on book page 19

How do I disengage the feed dog so I can machine quilt?


If there is not a lever on the machine for lowering the feed dogs, check the manual for accessories to see if there is a darning plate than snaps over the feed dogs. There will be tiny holes in the face plate where the plate snaps into place.

In a pinch, you can set the stitch length to zero and securely tape an index card (punch out hole for needle) over the feed dogs.

Blue painter's tape works well as it does not leave a residue - I also use the tape as a guide when stitching long lengths that are too far from the fabric edge for any other type of guide.

Sewing machine fabric won't move


It could be that your feed dogs are lowered. Look for a knob with 2 positions; one with a zig-zag and dotted line next to it, and the other with a cross-hatch design.

Manual for model 1409


Download the manual here.

This is the White manual for 1409, 1409A and 1410. Type in the number 1409 in the search box. Do now use the word White, just the number. It will come up W1409. That is your machine.

Singer owned the White company during the period this sewing machine was made.

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233


Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!
