I'm sorry to say that it sounds like you have a broken gear that is preventing the feed dogs from moving properly. Depending on the machine, this could be a very expensive repair.

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.

How do I avoid breaking a needle on a 26 foot beginning a free motion project after programing the foot choice and lowering the foot?


#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.

Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.

My stitch regulator will not work. I have had it looked at 2x but still will not change from 2.5 higher or lower.


What Viking is it ? Have you cleaned between the feeders? If all is clean, try this test. Remove needle. Turn hand wheel so that feeders are up. Put fabric in machine. Lower presser foot. Make sure presser foot pressure is set at normal. Try pulling the fabric towards the front of the machine. It should be hard to pull. If it is easy to pull you need new feeders. They are worn down.

No knob to adjust presser foot pressure. Space between feed dogs & presser foot is too tight to pull a piece of fabric out with foot down. Diagonal seams get pushed out.


You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.

Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.

The feeder dose not feed


there is a switch on the back of most machines behind the feed dogs that allow you to drop the feet for embroidery, you have to switch it back to raise the feed dogs back up

When I am sewing the needle moves up and down and so to the feeder feet but it will not pull the fabric through. I am not sure what to do...


Try lengthening your stitches on your stitch guide, it could be trying to stitch too tightly together & not stitching 'forward'....

Problem with the foot and feeder


You can also check the pressure foot regulator (near were the light is open the cover as if you were threading neelde and it is in there its mealat and has numbers 0-3 on it. 1 is for heavy fabrics, 2 for med, 3 is for light and 0 is for darning or fre motion sewing. the standard setting is 2. try both this and the feed daos, one of them should work.
