There is a presser foot pressure dial on the left end of the machine, make sure it is on 3 or higher.

Bobbin thread will not catch unless the foot is down?

Ashleigh--Your machine will work satisfactorily ONLY if the presser foot is down. When the presser foot is up, the tension disk is released, therefore, no tension = a big knot of thread.

To free motion quilt, you should drop the feed dogs. Install a darning foot (this foot is shorter in length so when it is lowered, there is a space between the presser foot and needle plate). The space allows the fabric to be moved easily while stitching.

Some sewists will free motion quilt without a presser foot (if they don't have a darning foot), but that is very dangerous as one can easily sew through a finger. However, even when sewing without a presser foot, the presser foot mechanism needs to be lowered in order to properly form stitches.

Make sure you lower the presser foot before continuing the operation.

The foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button

was pressed if the foot controller is not connected)

and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button
was pressed while the presser foot was raised.

My Rose sewing machine will not sew. It beeps and the presser foot icon flashes. I have re threaded, re bobbined, re placed the presser foot, and I think I have cleared the memory, but I am not really...

That light means you need to lower the presser foot. It cannot sew until the foot is lowered. The lever to lower the foot is behind the needle area on the back.

there are 2 type of presser bar foot clamps
one allows you to snap on the foot--raise & then lower the presser foot holder until the cut out is directly above the pin on the foot,,as you lower the presser foot holder the presser foot will automatically engage when put down on the pin area

the second is a shank & foot combined & there is a screw on the presser bar,,unscrew it some & put the shank up around the screw & retighten the screw

I have a 7466 Singer sewing machine. No matter how I adjust the thread tension, the top thread always pulls the bobbin thread through to the top. I am doing thread painting. The feed dogs are lowered and...

Make sure to thread the machine with the presser foot up to insure the thread is seated into the tension control.

Always free-motion with the presser foot down.

Try a lower setting on the tension.

How do I install my darning foot?

First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.

Presser foot wont raise and lower

Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.
