Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
My wife sets the presser foot pressure on her viking husqvarna 230 electronic sewing machine but the dial changes position whenever she raises the presser foot lever. When the presser foot is lowered she has to reset the presser foot pressure. Shouldn't the dial stay put when the presser foot lever is raised?

SOURCE: Presser foot lever stuck
You lever doesn't work because the presser foot Bar is seized from lack of use.Open the side of the machine to access the bar. Put a mixture of water and ammonia ( about 80%water 20% ammonia) on the top and bottom of the bar. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes then try to move the presser foot Up by lifting the foot with a screw driver. Do not pry so hard you break something. It should get progressively easy the more times you do this. Put some sewing machine oil on the top and bottom of the shaft and it should be good to go.

Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.

My moms does the same. One way we got around it was to hold the presser foot all the way up and click the ok button on the screen. The other thing we did would be to hold the presser foot up all the way while turning the machine on while the embroidery unit was already attached. When I say raise the presser foot all the way up, I am talking about raising it up as if you were placing something really large under the foot, not just in the resting up position. Hope this helps - it is very frustrating! My sister has the same exact machine purchased at the same time as my moms, but she doesn't have this problem.

There is a presser foot pressure dial on the left end of the machine, make sure it is on 3 or higher.

Testimonial: "Thanks--Don't know how the wheel was moved, but that fixed the problem. Now if I could only find the owner's manual!! "
It could be that yours is frozen like mine was. I followed the directions for resetting the screw, but it still wouldn't go. I had to sand off the rust and tap the end with a hammer! Now it goes up and down just fine! I have a Singer 9005, but like the techie said, they are all a lot a like in this part.
