Sounds like foot is not raising high enough. take off side plate and loosen presser ft screw and if possible slide collar down and tighten screw. u can mess arouond here since this will not affect machine timing.

SOURCE: I have a Juki DU-141 with a tread tension issue.

If you are putting too much fabric for the machine to sew this will happen. Does it sew any other fabrics? Some machines....even many commercial machines.........will not sew real heavy fabrics. Any thing over 1/3 of an inch and thats probably the case.

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

Raising presser foot on Janime 2212

See p. 10 of the manual.

The presser foot lifter is on the right side of the leftmost part of the machine, towards the back of the machine. Press up to raise it.

I have the juki TL 98Q and the presser foot will not go up or down. The lever in the back moves but the foot stays up.


It could be as simple as the set screw in the lifting collar has came loose. If you open the end piece and raise the lever in the back up and down you should be able to see if the collar is loose. It will be on the pressure bar and it is the piece the lever pushes on to lift the foot. If just loose you have to put it to where it needs to be on pressure bar to lift it high enough and tighten the set screw.

Computer stuck on "Raise presser foot lever" when I want to embroider


I fixed myself. When you take off the front left cover to expose inner workings o0f pressure foot lever, move the pressure foot lever see, the small metal plate move, when looking from back of machine see a small post upper left rear with what kooks to be a spring, lightly touch causing to spring back to the left and you will hear a snap. This is realigning pressure foot and your embroidery unit will register and you will have a normal lcd screen.This helped me, hope helps you.

Threading a needle


1. Turn handwheel toward you 2. Raise presser foot up 3. Pull thread from spool and pull taut under each tension disk. It's important to "feel" the "click" if you are new to threading machine 4.Make sure after all tension disks threaded that you put thread behind the slot in back of your needle. It's a little groove to hold thread securely. 5. Pull thread toward you 6. Thread needle eye front to back 7. Pick up thread under gently pull taut in front of you 8. Lower presser foot and turn handwheel toward you. A loop will form under the needle where needle thread has picked up the bobbin thread. Carefully take both threads that have made a single loop and pull toward you 9. Put threads under presser foot just lift put threads under and pull 5 -6 inches thread BACK and UNDER that presser foot Done! Hope this helps, my friend! Jimmy

When I raise the lever the presser foot only lifts a bit at the end of the motion and doesn't stay up. Is the foot supposed to remain up after the lever is raised? In the first 40 degrees of motion...


yes, pressure foot lever should stay raised, this sounds like the spring has broken in your machine. if you are comfortable with delving into the machine you could open it up and take a look. alternatively take it to a sewing repair man and get it serviced as well as clean and lube.

When I attach my embroidery unit to my babylock ellagio, the screen say to rasie the presser foot....but the foot is already raised? Any suggestions??


Try lifting it past the point it would normally rest at, in the up position. Then if the message comes up touch okay. It sould recalibrate the unit when its lifted. It may be able to be adjusted, mostly its a replacement. The switch is at the back of the machine in above the presser foot. You can see if the back cover would come off.

How do I move the presser foot on a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 sewing machine?


Not sure what exactly you need to know. Are you trying to lift the presser foot or change the presser foot to another one? If it is lifting, there will be a lever of some kind behind the machine. On one of my Husqvarna machines it was a big flat "paddle" shaped lever, not sure what shape it is on the Emerald machines. Lift the lever from the bottom upwards and outwards. Most Husqvarna machines have clip on-and-off feet. You just gently pull forwards on the foot (while the presser foot is raised) to remove it, then push the new one on making sure the small bar part of the presser foot goes into the clip on the presser foot ankle.

Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot


If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.
