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?

Thanks in advance for helping

    Can anyone explain what you mean by putting the bobbin all the way to the left? I saw that in the instruction manual, but don't understand what they mean. What bobbin? The one that feeds thread from the top or the bottom of the machine? I understand English pretty well but I am terrible with mechanical stuff. I have the same problem, the machine worked for a few days and now it is giving me the red light.

This also happens when the bobbin winder is too close to the right-like when you wind a bobbin and don't put it back or not back all the way to the left.

Some times if the buttonhole lever had moved this will happen try reaching back moving this back into position if fabric pushes this and moves it the red lite will stay on

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!

When trying to embroider I keep getting a Lower the Presser foot message when it is already lowered!!


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.

Cant get machine to embroider


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.

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.

My presser foot won't snap on to my White 3032


It sounds as though you are missing the ankle which is the part the foot attaches to. The ankle attaches to the metal rod with a screw and the foot snaps onto the ankle.

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

"Lower presser foot" error on SE 270D


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.1_9_2012_12_19_55_am.jpg

How to put on presser foot "p" to embroider


Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.

But to change presser fot:

If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.

If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.
