i can't for the life of my, figure out how to lower the feed dogs on this machine. it is new to me, i purchased this machine with no manual. it was new in the box, please help me lower the feed dogs..thanks gjznany
The machine should either have which model it is on the box or on your machine. If you can read it on the machine or box you can go to the Janome website and download the manual for your machine. Also if it is a new machine in the box you should contact Janome and register it with them. If you go again to the website and contact machine support they can tell you what you need to do. All Janome machines that are new have a warranty on them and you really should take advantage of it in case you have a problem.
I'm not familiar with your model but I do have a Janome made machine and the place to lower the feed is on the base of the machine..at the "back" of the machine on the underpart of the free arm. I know..go figure, most machines have the lever in the front. You might want to check the back of your machine if you haven't already.
Also..is it possible that your model has a feed cover plate rather than the ability to lower the feed?
