Elna 9000 computer sewing machine. How do I set the presser foot to hold material between the foot and feeder dogs.


Check your owner's manual for presser foot pressure adjustment. Yours is probably set too lightly.

Mechanism will not go down to hold material in place? Lever on back of machine seems to work fine.


For a Singer read the instructions in the link on page eight.

Every make have their own method to adjust the down force of the presser foot to the fabric.

Most makes are similar in that the adjustment is just above the shaft that connects to the presser foot.

It maybe sticking up do to lack of lubrication especially in older models.

Hope this helps.

Riccar 3500; can I get a piping foot for it? Thanks. Hayley


a piping foot is a normal foot with one side cut off
that allows the needle to be positioned next to the piping while the remainder of the foot holds the material down and progresses the material for sewing
to do double piping you would need to sew one in first then repeat the operation laying the second piping in next to the first lot

Pressure foot wont go fully down


The pressure foot is only made to push down on the material, not the feed dogs. If you put it too low it will destroy the feed dogs and the pressure foot as well as the material.
1. To adjust, lower the pressure of the pressure foot as much as you can.
2. Place a thick piece of material under the foot. Turn the hand wheel until the feed dogs are up.
3. The pressure foot rod has a screw that holds it into place. You will adjust the rod by moving it up and down until there is a small amount of pressure on the material. Tighten the screw and try your machine without a needle to see if the material will move. Now, try other thicknesses of material. The rod may need to be slightly adjusted a small amount to get it "just right".
4. PUT IN NEEDLE AND CHECK FOR ALIGNMENT TO THE HOLE. (DANGER IF NOT ALIGNED).

How to set singer machine for strechy fabric


Hello, Most often if the machine sews fine on a regular material, cotton, denim, ect.....then the material...in this case "stretchy" is moving up and down with the needle...this is called "flagging" the material moves ever so slightly and this cause the hoop that the hook would pick up to be either not the right size or just a fraction out of line with the travel of the hook. On most industrial machines you can increase the presser foot pressure and cure it. From time to time the size of the hole in the middle of the presser foot can allow movement... so you might try applying a sturdy tape or material to the under side of the foot in order to reduce the hole side.

Hope this helps!!

I have a Simplicity Denim Expert sewing machine it's about 5 or six years old but an excellent machine I need to know how to put the foot that holds down the material back on the long iron piece that...


Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.

Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.

You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.

You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/simplicity-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

Hope this helps!

Missing part of sewing machine


That should be your foot I'm guessing?!? The machine should have come with several?!? Like, a zipper foot, button hole foot etc. Mine (Janome SX 2122) are stored in my machine, in the top section where you load the thread. , you can use one of the others. Mine also has a spare basic foot...have a look and see if it's there either in or with your machine or with some of the extra parts it should have come with (may run into troubles if it's second-hand though...as you may not even have all of the parts)...if you don't have a basic foot you can often just use one of the other feet (like a zipper foot or something), which may not quite hold the material down, depending on what you're sewing, at least until you get a chance to get another basic foot...which you can get from any store that sells material or sewing machines. Hope that helps :)

When attempting to sew rather thin material the main presser foot has not enough downward pressure to keep the material from sliding around. This is on a Singer 111W. Works fine on leather etc. I thought...


This machine was not designed to sew THIN material. It is an upholstery machine and it will never sew thin fabric very well. You can try a smaller needle(size 16 or less) and shorter stitches. There is also an adjustment to raise and lower the walking foot located on the backside of the machine. It can be recognized by the wing nut holding it in place and that it slides up and down when it is loose.
