SOURCE: "Lower presser foot" error on SE 270D

OK; My SE-270D is about 5 years old and it just recently started giving me the "lower presser foot lever" I have already spent $30 going on line to fixit websites only to be told to take the unit to a service center. I went through the normal routine of trying to reset the computer of which did not work. I can't afford to spend $75 just to let someone look at my unit and then pay even more to have it fixed. I could buy the same machine or equivalent (brand new) for about $200. I am sort of mechanically inclined so I decided what the heck, I will just open up this machine and try to figure it out myself. I mean what do I have to loose. I opened up the unit and discovered there is a tiny "pressure switch" which is activated when the lever is pushed up or down. When the lever is up the switch is "off" when the lever is lowered it releases the spring loaded whitch to the "on" position. The tiny switch is right below the thread tension dial. I discovered that the switch could be activated manually by pulling it over with my finger. I had to make a hole in the casing so I could get to the switch after I put it back together. WALA! it works. When I lower the presser foot lever I then pull the broken switch into the proper position and it works like a sewing machine. I gambled on this solution because I have a tiny bit of mechanical knowledge. So if you are lacking in that area, please don't try it.

SOURCE: The presser foot came off Brothers sewing machine

position the foot under the shaft making sure the horizontal pin on the foot is in line with the horizontal groove on the end of presser foot fitting on the shaft. Lower the pressor foot arm and it should snap right on. If not, press it up manually. the directions should be in your manual. If you don't have your manual, you can get it online at

SOURCE: I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.

I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

There is a button that sets the machine to embroidery or to sewing. It is probably under your stuff tray. It must be set to the right position for it to work.

How do I fix the following problem with my Janome MC9000 sewing machine?

Unfortunately you are probably not going to be able to fix this.
It needs a sensor adjusted (probably), or a component replaced.

Problems with foot pedal light

sounds like there is a design fault, I suggest if you can take the
machine back and get a different brand of sewing machine.
I've been sewing for over 25 years and I would put up
with that kind of sewing machine.
probably a computer problem.

I have a Janome 11000-it won't embroidery

You have to be sure you have the correct foot on the machine and that it is put on correctly. You can't use a regular foot - you need to use the embroidery foot P, which require you to remove the foot holder altogether, and put on the P.
