Model 6230- presser foot lifter won't move presser foot

I just got this model 6230 PFAFF sewing machine from my elderly mother. It has not been used in 5 -8 yrs. The "presser foot lifter" won't move the presser foot down. When alot of pressure is used on the presser foot it will go down and then the "presser foot lever " will lift it up again, but not down. It feels as if it is extremely "gunked up" some how.

Thanks for any ideas on what to do.

Help! I have a Pfaff Hobbymatic 807 that my mother in law owned. I can not for the life of me find a way to reduce the pressure on the sewing foot. Sewing cotton over fleece


If your machine does not have a pressure regulator (and some machines do not), you can make sewing thicker projects easier by using a walking foot. If you are sewing a quilt (two or more pieces of fabric and batting), a walking foot would be the preferred presser foot. Even reducing the pressure will not be enough.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Can't get my presser foot to fall down when I let go of the lifter on my Pfaff 6085 sewing machine


Sounds as if the spring for the presser bar is broken OR the presser bar is dirty and needs cleaned and oiled.

How do I change a pfaff 1222 presser bar lifter? I ordered a replacement part, but now I don't know how to remove it.


If you are lucky, your part will come with instructions. Each machine is a bit different but basically you have to get into the needle bar/presser foot bar area. If you are Lucky you can get to the lever assembly without having to take out a bunch of bars. But I've only ever seen that once on an industrial machine. So you take out the presser foot bar... to get to the lever. Use caution. You want to be sure you know where and how the parts fit in there. Take your time... take pics or make notes.

Good luck
