    I have a babylock espire and after lowering the feed dogs for a project, they won't raise up again. I took the face plate off and cleaned the lint but it is not responding to the re-set of the feed dogs. Any suggestions?

    Hello and Welcome to the board :D:D:D
    Try turning the machine off, let set for a few minutes and then turn it back on.

    Thanks for the tip. I will also try to reset all the settings and start over.

    Hi Joyce and welcome to the board I'm Pam from Arkansas. I have a Janome sewing machine and this happened once to me. I had to start sewing a little to get it to come back up. I decided I would never lower mine again. Since I have been on the lookout for a good cheap machine to do my free motion with.

    Hi and welcome to the board. This is what I was going to suggest also. On my Kenmore, the feed dogs don't pop up until I start to sew or at least press the pedal as if to sew.

    Have you tried turning the handwheel to engage the feed dogs?
