Something wrong in the linkage between the feed dogs and the control.

SOURCE: Feed dogs do not come back up after lowering

Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.

Hi,
This may sound crude, but you can tape a piece of thin cardboard over the teeth. Be sure to make a cut out for the needle with plenty of clearance to make stitches and the cardboard won't interfere.

SOURCE: How do I raise and lower the feed dog on my singer

On your Singer, you don't actually raise / lower the feed dog. Instead you attach a "darning plate" (which should have come with the machine) which covers the feed dogs so they do not come in contact with the fabric. See a page from the owner's manual using this link within my web site: http://www.sewvac1.com/Singer3080_Feed_Drop.pdf

Try lowering the feed dog and then raising it again, but be sure to push the switch over as far as possible. Sometimes the switch will stop just a little short and the feed dog will not be 100% raised but it will seem to be to the naked eye. Hope this helps.

6235 singer ! How do I raise feed dogs ???


According to the manual, there is an accessory that covers the feed dogs. (Shown as an accessory on page 4.) So the feed dogs should not raise or lower other then during normal sewing action of moving the fabric.

Singer futura xl-400 should the feed dogs be disengaged when embroidering


ABSOLUTELY! The XL models of embroidery machines are supposed to automatically lower when you put the embroidery unit on, but I have had an XL-400 and currently have an XL-550 and Quintet, and I have noticed on the latter two that the feed dogs have not always automatically lowered. Incidentally, to lower or raise the feed dogs, the lever (it's in the back) goes DOWN and OVER. If you are having problems getting it move, use a straight blade screwdriver and pop the little tip off--it's not necessary to operating the feed dogs.

Also incidentally, when you raise the feed dogs, you have to turn the hand wheel towards (ALWAYS towards you for anything) several times to get the feed dogs to actually pop up. You'll hear when it does that. They lower right away, though.

I have a futura CE-200. The feed dog is stuck in the down position. The switch will not work. Is this something that I can fix?


I had the same problem with my Singer machine. The lady in Hancocks told me that when you begin sewing the feed dogs will pop back up. Just rotate your wheel and see if that fixes it.

Feed dogs will not go up after being lowered even though I turn dial to the correct position


I have the same problem and had to resolve it with a work around until someone comes up with a fix. I manually force the feed dogs up by taking the small singer screwdriver, placing it on the bottom of the feed dogs then pressing them upward.

My Singer Embroidery machine works wonderfully on embroidery, but...when strait stitching or design stitching...constant error. Thought it was the tension, so I've tried every setting. Still beeps and get...


HI,
Did you make sure that you raised the feed dogs? There is a sliding button on the front that you have to move sideways to let the feedogs come up. If not the fabric is not being move right and that may be the reason of the wrong stitching.
Also, are you oiling your machine appropriate?

Feed dog & beeping


To make the feed dogs come up ... turn your wheel about 2 times all the way and they will come up (this is after you switch the feed dog switch to the up position)
