SOURCE: Bernina Virtuosa 150 and uneven layers or bulk.

Hi I have a 15 year old Frister Rossmann serger which I got second hand 10 years ago. It has had one break down which was my fault for not getting it serviced for 8 years. Not sure where in world you are. They sell as Frister Rossmann in UK and Europe and Kenmore in the US. I've used it mainly for dressmaking and soft furnishing projects. One more thought on the Bernina have you tried leaving a query / searching on the US Bernina website www.berninausa.com I use them alot. Try and stick with getting the Bernina sorted, I love mine!

SOURCE: faulty presser foot lifter on a singer 2110/2112.

I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.
Good luck!

SOURCE: presser foot lifter is stuck can i fix it

If you can't lift the presser foot up at all undo the presser bar screw on top of the presser bar, if you have a dial turn it to 0, you should now be able to move the lever, if it is still tight put some WD40 on the presser bar and leave it for a couple of hours.

SOURCE: The presser foot lifter of my Singer 9432 has disconnected

Had the same problem.
Open the cover where the light bulb is.

Follow the presser foot rod up into the machine.

You will find a metal keeper with a set screw facing the now open end of the machine.

That set screw has most likely come loose.

Since the presser foot is spring loaded to the down position leave the presser foot raising lever in the down position.

With your flat bladed screwdriver, gently push the metal keeper to it's lowest position. If it does not go easy, loosen the metal keeper set screw a bit. Lefty loosey.

Tighten the set screw on the metal keeper. Righty tighty.

Can I sew fine knits with my Bernina 830? What would I dial the machine to in order to avoid puckering?


Warning--leaving the presser foot up while sewing will not work because raising the presser foot releases the tension!!! You'll likely end up with a huge knot of thread to remove and possibly damaged fabric.

Fine fabrics present some issues for most machines but there are several things you can do to alleviate or even eliminate issues.

Be sure to use lightweight needles for knits (ball point). Use a good quality fine thread. Loosening the tension will help alleviate some of the puckering. In addition, using a wash-away stabilizer to add body to the fabric will help with puckering. (Even using paper under the fabric will be enough to remove puckering--however, it tends to dull the needle faster than usual--but a new needle is an inexpensive solution to an age-old problem. Also, using a roller foot, teflon foot, or walking foot may be beneficial in feeding the fabric. Some people will starch the fabric to add body.

The presser foot doesn't sit all the way down in order to sew correctly. Can I adjust it myself? How?


Has that particular presser foot worked in the past? Do the other presser feet work?

If it hasn't been used before, check that it is the correct foot for the machine. Is it perhaps a darning foot or free motion foot? If so, those particular feet are made to Not rest on the feed dogs so that the fabric can be manually moved without the use of the feed dogs.

If none of the presser feet work with the machine, then the needlebar has probably shifted. It may be best to take it for service as it may require specific tools and gauges to adjust it properly.

How do I avoid breaking a needle on a 26 foot beginning a free motion project after programing the foot choice and lowering the foot?


#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.

Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.

My BV 160 is giving me problems. The fabric will not move along as I sew. I hve ck'd the feed dogs, they're ok, rethreaded the needle, bobbin, cleaned the bobbin but still not sewing.


have you checked the presser foot to see if the presser foot is holding
the fabric against the feed dogs so they can move the fabric thru to
be sewn by the needle?

I have an 1130 bernina and love it! with all fabric types the top material is not moving along with the bottom material when sewing seams. the lighter fabrics are puckering and the seams are anywhere...


The 1130 does not have a consumer adjustable presser foot. Check to be sure you are using the correct presser foot .Some feet are slightly different in height which is how the pressure is regulated. If this is not your problem it will need to be seen by a technician.
