The pressure foot knob had some problems. on this model. The solution was to remove the covers and the e clip that holds the knob in place. I install a belleville spring washer on the knobs shaft. This extra tension keeps the knob from turning when the sewing machine vibrates. This may be more difficult than most consumers want to attempt.

How do I change tension when I'm sewing a thro for a bed and the material is thick?

You probably need to change the "presser foot pressure" if your machine has the function. It increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. You can also try using a walking foot, teflon foot, or roller foot to see if it helps feed the fabric and make a more even stitch.

Started sewing on my machine and after 16 inches and hitting the reverse stitch button I can hardly get it to move. I can move it manually. Have I done something wrong?

If the machine has a problem backing up it is due to the thickness of the material. Remember; as you are sewing forward the thickness increases with the added stitches. This has the effect of increasing pressure on the foot. Try to lower the pressure on the foot. Also, you are likely using a very high number of stitches per inch. To lower this number might also help.

The pressed foot lifter won't hold the material, I can push it up down turn it around this is not right

Are you saying the presser foot has very light pressure on the fabric? If so, most machines have the ability to increase the pressure the presser foot applies to fabric and feed dogs. It depends on your machine's make & model where & how that pressure is adjusted. Older machines usually have a large skrew or knob at the top of the needle bar that tightens down on a big spring, thus the tighter spring increases the pressure. Newer machines sometimes have a dial usually located on the top left or side of the machine head. (Consult your owner's manual.)

How do I adjust the presser foot pressure on my Janome 7100QDC

your model doesn't have this feature Janome 7100QDC Computerized Sewing Machine , it it did, there would be a knob on the top left of the machine above the presser foot which you could screw up or down to increase or decrease the pressure. Its not a feature on many machines, the presser foot bar has a big spring internally which applies the pressure and this will just adjust to suit the fabric under the foot.

How to adjust pressure foot pressure on husqvarn viking disginer 1 sewing maching

I'm confused by your question, which mentions two machines. The presser foot pressure on a Tacsew T111-155 is adjusted by turning the knob on the left side, top of the machine that is directly over the needle. The Designer 1 mostly sets its own presser foot pressure, but it can be increased or decreased by following the procedure on p. 13 of the manual:

Not sure about it says increase or decrease pressure

There should be a control on top of your machine that is directly over the needle OR, if you have a "door" on the left side of your machine that exposes some of the workings, then there might be a dial inside there. The pressure refers to the amount of pressure the sewing machine foot applies to the fabric. For thick fabrics, you will want to lighten that pressure. For thinner fabrics, you might want to increase that pressure. Use those controls to set the foot pressure. Try it out with a scrap to see if the pressure is to your liking. Good luck!

I need to know how to change the pressure between the foot and the sewing plate. I have no problem doing regular sewing but when I try to do several layers (such as quilting) the pressure is too much and...

The rotary control on the left-hand end of the sewing arm controls the foot pressure. You shouldn't normally need to vary this, except when quilting thick materials. The control is normally set with the 'bar' in the middle of the knob straight up-and-down, but you can reduce the pressure by turning it - the markings on the head cover correspond to increasing and decreasing the foot pressure.

There is a knob on the left side of machine, I don't know what it does or used for. The manual didn't make it to me with the machine. I figured out the threading, but the tension is too tight. I would...

The knob on the left is the Pressure Foot pressure dial. Here is what the manual says about it: " This dial regulates how hard the presser foot is pushing down on the fabric. To little pressure may cause poor feeding of the fabric, skipped stitches, or difficulty in guiding the fabric as you sew. Too much pressure may result in one layer feeding ahead of another or feed teeth or presser foot marks on the fabric. For most fabrics set the dial at 2. For thicker fabric increase the dial to 3 and for thin fabric decrease to 1." The red dial on top, the far left one, is the tension dial. Just have to play around with that til you get it like you want. Hope this helps!
