Feed Dogs Won't Go Down?I have a Frister Rossmann 906 sewing machine from the 1970s. I can't get the feed dogs to go down. The switch and I guess the levers are stuck, but I don't see any way to access the levers. I'm using it for machine embroidery, but it would be better without the feed dogs. It is in perfect working order otherwise. I wish you could get good machine diagrams with purchases.

Troubleshooting a Brother 1400e Embroidery Machine?I have a Brother 1400e sewing machine, it stitches out placement fine. Then when I put the first appliqué piece down, it stitches out until it gets to the final stitching and then it tears the stabilizer and pulls the fabric away as well. I changed the needle, bobbin, bobbin case, and thread. I tried pulling the bottom thread to the top when starting. I have never had this problem before.
