Customer Question
I have a singer...

I have a singer 44s the feed dogs won’t reengage since I dropped them to do free motion quilting

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

About 4 days

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have tried moving the switch back and forth turning the hand wheel to re-engage. I have even open the base of the machine there is a little lever that when pushed will cause the feed dogs to go up and down but nothing that is obviously wrong

The Feeddogs will re-engage when

  1. the switch is set to the UP position, and then
  2. the handwheel is rotated ONE full revolution
