Can you adjust the needle assembly up higher for thicker garments like thicker coats etc. on Kenmore sewing mach. model 158-13360


On some machines, you can lighten the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. (Some machines do not have this capability.) But, you don't want to adjust the height of the presser foot.

If the fabric is pushing in front of the presser foot as you are sewing, you might want to try using a walking foot, a teflon foot, or a roller foot.

Kenmore 158 13360 Sewing Machine If this is like your machine, the pressure adjustment is the upright pin at the top left side of the machine. The inner pin pushes down (in various degrees), the further it is pushed down, the more pressure the presser foot applies. To release the inner pin, press down on the outer ring of the pin. It will snap back up where you can again push the inner pin down in degrees. BTW, it is a good idea to always release this pressure pin when you store the machine. If not, what happens is, over time the spring that applies the pressure becomes compressed and no longer applies pressure like it should.

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).

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.)

I need help with the outside walking foot on a singer211 it has to much pressure on it I need to know how to adjust.


I am NOT familiar with your Singer model 211, BUT.... Most machines [most brands too] have a knurlled screw knob on top which is attached to the long vertical shaft upon which the foot is mounted at the bottom.

"Normally," turning this screw clockwise tends to increase the foot pressure, while counterclockwise rotation tends to loosen the spring pressure on the foot!

How do you adjust pressure foot tension


you probably can't adjust the pressure on the foot, most models it is preset with no ability to adjust the pressure. Take a look at the top of the machine, left side above the needle area. If your machine has adjustable foot pressure, there will be a thumb screw of some sort on the top of the machine in this area, possible with a + and - symbol to indicate which way to turn to adjust the pressure.

I have owned Elnas, Janomes and Singers and only one of them had adjusted foot pressure.

I can't get the foot to lower and raise.


it sounds like it's out of time--here's how to fix it
to adjust the pressure on the presser bar and in turn the foot, locate the thumb
screw at the top of the machine

by rotating the thumb screw clockwise, you will increase the pressure, a counter
clockwise turn will decrease the pressure

the correct height of the pressure foot from the needle plate is 7mm.
to adjust this clearence loosen the screw & adjust the pressure bar through
the guide
secure the screw firmly when the correct adjustment is obtained

the distance between the presser bar lifting arm & the presser bar guide should
be 0.5mm ..( be sure the needle bar does not rotate left or right during the
adjustment process. the needle must be center of the presser foot & needle
plate hole,, if this is not centered re-adjust to the center of both needle foot
& needle plate hole.

How do I adjust tension on my dogfeed?


You haven't said what make and model of machine you have.

Howver, pressure onto the feed dogs is usually controlled by adjusting the pressure foot pressure which is pushing the fabric down onto the feed dogs, you don't usually adjust the feed dogs themselves.

Pressure foot pressure is sometimes a dial or knob on top above the pressure foot area, if there isn't one visible on your machine, then it probably isn't a feature it has.

My Janome has knob on top that you can turn turn or up to tighten or loosen the pressure - I don't usually adjust it much though, only time might be if I'm sewing a couple of layers of vinyl or leather and having trouble getting it to feed.

HOW DO I ADJUST THE PRESSURE FOOT FOR MORE PRESSURE...SEARS WILL SHOW SHOW ME ON THEIR SITE WHERE TO ADJUST THE PRESSURE, I NEED A PICTURE LIKE SEARS GIVES , SO I CAN ADJUST ...


there should be a place to adjust the "feed dogs" on your machine. They should be able to be raised or lowered to give you proper to get the pressure of the pressure foot where you want it.
