Take the machine apart to the point where you can see the pivot point for the presser bar lifter and spray WD40. Let sit for a few hours and try again. Repeat until the presser bar lifter releases.

Make sure that your needle is in the highest position, turn your handwheel towards you, not away from or else you will mess up the timing

Why doesn't presser foot lift?


If it is still under warranty, take it back to the vendor. Probably something is not connected or is broken.

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?

How do I move the presser foot on a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 sewing machine?


Not sure what exactly you need to know. Are you trying to lift the presser foot or change the presser foot to another one? If it is lifting, there will be a lever of some kind behind the machine. On one of my Husqvarna machines it was a big flat "paddle" shaped lever, not sure what shape it is on the Emerald machines. Lift the lever from the bottom upwards and outwards. Most Husqvarna machines have clip on-and-off feet. You just gently pull forwards on the foot (while the presser foot is raised) to remove it, then push the new one on making sure the small bar part of the presser foot goes into the clip on the presser foot ankle.
