    Maybe look up the type of machine on line and they usually have the manual in the site. Just a suggestion.

    I had a White. The Quilter's machine and you could not lower them. It came with a clear plate to cover them.

    OK I have a White model 1740. Book says to lower the feed teeth, push the lever in and to the right. To return the feed teeth to the up position, push the lever to the front. I am still trying to figure out where this lever is, but maybe you already know. I'll keep studying the book and you can PM me if you want me to work with you. I haven't used this machine in about 6 months and I forget what it looks like. I do think that I covered them with a square plastic piece.

    Some machines have the lever located inside the bobbin area. You have to open the cover over the bobbin area to see it. Usually has a little teeth logo on it.

    I believe the lever is visible when you open the bobbin case. I assume this is a front loaded bobbin. I also had a machine that had a game of hide and go seek if you wanted to lower the feed dogs. I had to remove the arm cover/drawer, turn the machine backwards and shlightly up and find the button hidden back there.

    I bought a White and didn't like it. Since I'd bought it on clearance I couldn't take it back so I gave it away.

    I have a white D'lite, if you put you machine on it's side so you can see the bottom of the machine. you will see a slot with a lever in it. push it in and to the right and your teeth will go down. to put them back up push the lever in and toward you, turn the wheel on your machine and they will pop back up. see if this does it. If your machine has an extension table in it take it off first or you won't see it.
