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.

Probably too thick to feed without dislodging the bobbin case, causing the error message.

Foot pedal not working

Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

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.

How to adjust the tension of the presser foot on a brother sewing machine model ls-2220? I am trying to lighten the pressure of the presser foot for machine quilting.

You are not actually able to adjust the presser foot. For quilting you should pick up a "free motion" foot pedal made specifically for that. They run on e-bay for roughly $10-$20. Make sure you get one that fits your type of machine.

I am getting error message E4 when foot pedal is plugged in. Unplug the foot pedal and the machine goes back to normal with the exception that you really can't sew without the foot pedal.

Your reverse reinforcement stitch button was pushed or needle position was pushed while bobbin winder was moved to the right. You can download a free manual and you will see all of the troubleshooting and error messages there

F4 error on my brother cs-80 sewing machine

Can't answer your problem, my problem also. But I don't have the auto button, so I am really stuck. Was hoping you got the answer and did not have time to post.
