How do I Lower the pressure foot for sewing after changing from embroidery on my brother pc- 8500?

Would a manual help?

Brother PC 8500 User Manual

Are the feed dogs in the raised position? Is it a regular stitch presser foot or a darning foot? A darning foot is shorter in height so the fabric can be maneuvered without use of the feed dogs. Just some ideas. Could also be an embroidery setting that has not been deactivated.

Why will my embroidery attachment not go to the next letter unless I lower the presser foot manually and press Start each time?

When i first got my machine, i had to program it for 'continuation stitching', all it wanted to do was one letter and stop. Then I'd have to start the whole process over for the next letter. I just re-booted the machine, and it seemed to fix it's self.

At start up machine says press needle position button. All that happens is the motor revs up then says safety feature has been activated. Any ideas?

I used this machine in my middle school classroom. That message was in the first start up of the machine, I think it just resets the machine. The larger model also has a beginning reset button that just adjusts the arm of the machine. Is the machine working fine after the reset? Hopefully "sew"

My Brother PE-770 presser foot Q has started making a clacking noise. If I press in on the lever on the back of the foot, the clacking stops. What is causing this loud noise and how do it fix it?

Sounds like something in the machine in the head that makes it go up and down. either wear or something loose. I would have it checked by a Brothers repair shop

My sewing machine is flashing E1 AND I DONT KNOW HOW TO FIX IT Dottie

Error code E1:Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.

In order to get this error the foot controller has to be pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected), and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button needs to be pressed while the presser foot was raised.

The only solution offer by Brother is to lower the presser foot lever before continuing.

This seems a bit simplistic so assuming you tried that already
Check to make sure there is no tangled thread interfering with the take-up lever.

This seems to be a common problem and it may be related to a computer issue rather then a mechanical fault.

In this case you may need to have the machine serviced.
I hope something here helps. I will investigate more and if I discover anything else I will pass it on.

you may need to have the machine serviced.

I have an brother 8200 embroidery machine and when i turn it on it says the pressure foot is in the down position and it isn't. i have to jiggle it and sometimes that works but today it took a long time...

If you take the face plate off (left side cover) there is usually a small sensor "lever" that is activated when you raise or lower the presser foot. This could be bad or broken. Many models had plastic then they switched to a metal lever. I think this could be it.
