    Unhappy Feed Dogs

    I have a Viking Tribute. I put the feed dogs down this morning when I was cleaning her and now they won't come up. Anyone have any ideas? I'm afraid my baby is going to need a doctor and I am just getting used to her.
    Thanks for listening.

    Have you tried to turn the handwheel? They usually come up after a full rotation.
    If you have already tried this....please disregard the suggestion. I'm only operating on a few sips of coffee, so far.

    Did you maybe push a button or lever and didn't put it back?

    On my Juki I have to turn the knob to raise the feed dogs and lift up on something by the bobbin to get them to pop up. A bar looking thing.

    Some machines need you to switch on and to begin stitching to come up. Can't remember which machine it was .
    Finished is better than a UFO
