The feed dogs on my kenmore 24 sewing machine model # 3851764180 are not feeding my material through.

Thank you for your question on the feed dogs not moving up and down to feed the material.

There is no feed dog drop on this machine that I can see in the illustration.

I would suggest that you lay the machine on its back and then remove the lower left hand cover under the free arm and examine this area for disconnected springs our loose lifting mechanism.

I do not have any clear pictures for you to look at so if you cannot find the problem then you will have to take it in for repair.

Thank you Joseph, that was very helpful. Turns out the feed dogs are only moving up and down, not forwards and back. My husband already has it apart, exposing the gears and belts. We are still not sure what the problems is, he says the plate isn't moving properly.
