Looking for how to lower the pressure foot on model 16782


Are you talking about presser foot pressure--the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs?

Some machines have a dial that can raise or lower the pressure.

Some machines have a screw located at the top of the presser foot bar that can be tightened or loosened. (Unfortunately, manufacturers usually did not include this information in the user's manual.)

Even older machines sometimes have a spring-loaded push-button on the top left of the machine. When pushed in, it collapses the spring that applies less or more pressure to the presser foot. The inner button actually applies the pressure in "degrees" which is regulated by how far the button is pushed in. To release this pressure button, press on the outside ring to release the spring. (Incidentally, it is a good practice to release this spring when you are finished sewing. Storing it with the spring compressed may eventually cause the spring to lose its effectiveness.)

The pressure foot will not lower/ seems like the pressure foot lifter is stripped or missing something...when I raise it, it falls back down but the pressure foot remains in the lifted position


Most likely something has become disconnected or misaligned. Perhaps it is time for a routine service call to your local sewing machine shop.

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

What is pressure foot on sewing machine. where is pressure foot


This is the foot that comes down and holds the fabric layers under the needle.

There will be a pressure foot lever to raise and lower the pressure foot at the back of the sewing area, it usually operates vertically, although some makes have a lever that works horizontally.

The pressure foot needs to be lowered BEFORE you start stitching as it activates the top tension and also helps with the stitch formation by holding the fabric firmly as the needle moves up and down.

You can read some general sewing machine info at www.sewing.about.com too.

I place the fabric on the machine, lower the foot and apply pressure to the foot peddle, when the machine begins to sew fabric is pulled down and the lower thread tangles, the machine make a crunching...


This is easily solved. Before you start sewing make sure your upper and lower threads are long enough for you to hold before lowering the presser foot. If these threads are too short they both get carried down into the bobbin along with the fabric and cause a big tangled mess. Always hold your threads at the back of your work with your left hand then lower your pressure foot and don't release the threads untill you have taken several stitches. Keep holding these threads during backstitching at the beggining of a seam too. Works like magic.

Pfaff Select 4.0 has looping on bottom of fabric, free motion qui


Make sure your are lowering the pressure foot first before you start sewing. With the free motion foot, you still have to lower the pressure foot, this allows tension to be put on the top thread and allows the foot to work properly (when the needle goes down so should the foot and when the needle comes up it should lift the foot up.)

Also make sure your tensions are in a middle setting and that you are threading the machine with the pressure foot up.

The way to insure you will not get your problem is with the foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.

hope that helps :)

I don't think you have an evolve, dear. It's a serger. If you put this question under the right product, you will get helpful answers. All I can think is that your machine wants the feed dogs lowered manually? I have no other suggestion.
