White d'lite 1750c presser foot in down position not recognized
This was an intermitten problem but now is constant. When the presser fot is lowered an indicator light is supposed to turn green and then you can engage the machine. Instead, the indicator light stays red and naturally, doesn't allow me to begin sewing. There is a needle reset botton that does turn the light green, resets the needle and then the light turns red again. Apparently the needle reset does not require the presser foot to be in the down position to operate. I wouldn't mind bypassing the presser foot indication requirement, but I am out of ideas at this point. No loose wires, no pressure issues....any ideas?
Re: white d'lite 1750c presser foot in down position not...
I occasionally have the same problem with my White d'Lite 1750c. I turn the power off, let it rest a minute, then turn it on again, and the problem goes away for a long time (weeks, sometimes months). Of course, the settings go back to the default, so note your settings before turning the power off.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

You don't state the brand/model of your machine. If it is computerized model, the machine is not recognizing the presser foot's position. If there is a glass eye on the foot, make sure it is clean of any dust, lint, or fingerprints.
there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.
Turn power switch to "0"
raise the needle to highest position by turning the wheel toward you(counterclockwise) and raise the presser foot lever
release the foot by raising the lever located at the back of the presser foot assembly
place a different presser foot on the needle plate so that the bar on the presser foot is in line with the slot on the shank
lower the presser foot lever and fix the presser foot onto the shank. If the p foot is in the correct location the bar will snap in you should hear a click or snapping sound let me know if this helped thanks! amy
This happened to me and I eventually realized that there is a small door flap at the top near the "4" in the threading series that can get stuck open. Normally this flap goes up and down with the presser foot, but if it gets stuck open even when the presser foot is down, tapping it or closing it manually will make the error go away.
