Pfaff 6122 Problem

The pressure foot release lever lifts the pressure foot up, but it does not go down with the lever. I have to manually pull it down. After pulling it down, it does go up with the lever. 
The machine is in great shape. It is about 8 years old and was used heavily for the first three years. However, it has been rarely used the last three years.
Thank you.

    The pressure foot came loose (it screws in,) while I was sewing. I t fell on its side and when I tried to lift the lever, in back, it wouldn't lift. It seems to be stuck

    I lost the sewing foot lifting lever to my Pfaff 788 serger. I cannot seem to find the part on the internet, any suggestions?

    Pressure foot lever is really slow and doesn't bring the bar all the way down. I can manually push it down, but it won't stay there. There is no pressure.

Your machine just needs to be tuned up an the part inside that lower and raises the presser foot needs to be re-lubricated.  Lint, dust, dryness and the machine not being used can cause this issue with most pfaff machines (including my 7570).  A standard tune up from your local PFAFF dealer will remedy this.

Can't get my presser foot to fall down when I let go of the lifter on my Pfaff 6085 sewing machine


Sounds as if the spring for the presser bar is broken OR the presser bar is dirty and needs cleaned and oiled.

Pfaff 1371 pressure foot won't come down on it's own


I just addressed this issue with my 6110. There is a spring in the shaft for the pressure foot. Over time the white grease that lubricates the spring and the plastic piston at the top dried up, gumming up the works. I took it all apart, cleaned out the bad (now hard grease), re-greased and put it all back together. Works like new. I used a lithium grease as it is easy on plastic parts.

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?

How do I attach the darning foot on a Pfaff Expressions 2.0 please?


on the machine, there is a foot holder attached to the machine, & the feet to the machine will either be snapped on to the foot holder or there is a screw to undo. most of the new machine are snap on feet, take the presser bar lever up, there is a little lever on the back of the foot holder, & you push it toward the foot holder bar & it will release the foot & you put the other foot down on the needle plate & bring the foot holder bar down on the foot until it snaps on to the foot

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

Pfaff Select 4.0 has looping on bottom of fabric, free motion qui


Make sure your are lowering the pressure foot first before you start sewing. With the free motion foot, you still have to lower the pressure foot, this allows tension to be put on the top thread and allows the foot to work properly (when the needle goes down so should the foot and when the needle comes up it should lift the foot up.)

Also make sure your tensions are in a middle setting and that you are threading the machine with the pressure foot up.

The way to insure you will not get your problem is with the foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.

hope that helps :)

How to stipple with Pfaff 7550


Make sure you have the presser lifter lever in the proper position. When lowering it, push to the rear and it will stop half way down. This engages the upper tension but keeps the foot from lowering down and touching the fabric.
If this doesn't help please post the exact problem, i.e. thread pulling to the bottom etc.
Good luck!
