Replaced broken needle clamp, but presser foot blocks needle shaft from going all the way up & the drive wheel cannot complete a turn to pull thread.


I'd need to know what type of machine you have, but maybe you aren't putting the clamp on correctly. They are fussy! Be sure you have the flat side of the needle facing the correct way and that you wiggle and jiggle it while pushing up on the needle. Also, make sure you are using a new needle and not the old bent one. Sometimes the clamp will come in 2 pieces, so it may not have broken, just came undone.

How do I PUT together the presser foot. the part that snaps into foot


Here's a manual you can download. It should have instructions for attaching your presser foot:

Instruction Manual White 955

If you are using snap-on feet, be sure that you have the low-shank snap-on adapter for your machine (looks something like these) that actually clamps onto the presser foot:

Snap on Shank Low Shank

Presser foot shaft twisted


You can correct this.

Put an ordinary foot on. There's a clamping screw at the back of the part that has twisted round. The head of the screw faces towards the right of the machine (towards the hand wheel). Get a decent screwdriver and loosen the clamping screw a little. Turn the part round so that the sides of the feet are precisely parallel to the slots in the needle plate. Retighten the clamping screw.

Try not to let the misaligned part slide up or down which it will if you slacken the clamping screw too much. It's at the right height when the little lever you use to hold the foot in place has engaged about one third to one half it's length on the lump on the side of the foot at the top.

Pfaff 6091 how do i set presser foot height ?


If you got inside and cleaned and oiled the presser spring... then you have probably loosened the clamping mechanism that holds the presser bar. Get back inside. Look for a mark on the bar and adjust it so that the mark is UP near the clamp.

Attachments for 140 activa


Do you mean a presser foot to sew rolled hem or shell hem edges?
11_15_2011_1_23_35_am.jpg
If so, the Bernina website lists the accessories here:http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n25-i61-sEN.html

Bernina feet 68 and 69 are rolled hem/shell, just different widths. However, I think the feet for the Activa are the new 3 digit numbered feet? I know there is the old style and new style attachment system for Bernina feet, if you look at the presser feet you got with the machine, they will have a code on the front of the foot; buy any new feet with same code format.

As to where to buy, I always start with the manufacturer/distributor in my country first. So start with www.bernina.com, go to your country, then "contact us" page and give the local office a call. They should be able to confirm the exact foot code you need and sell it to you or direct you to a local dealer who can.

HOW DO I ATTACH PRESSER FOOT G TO MY MACHINE??


there are 2 type of presser bar foot clamps
one allows you to snap on the foot--raise & then lower the presser foot holder until the cut out is directly above the pin on the foot,,as you lower the presser foot holder the presser foot will automatically engage when put down on the pin area

the second is a shank & foot combined & there is a screw on the presser bar,,unscrew it some & put the shank up around the screw & retighten the screw

How do I install my darning foot?


First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.

Faulty presser foot lifter on a singer 2110/2112.


I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.
Good luck!
