When i release the leg lever to let down the presser foot ,the foot wont release all the way and now it wont stitch

Mine does this too sometimes. Lift up the head and look in the middle of the oil pan. The knee controller runs through there. Make sure the black knob is not stuck. Hit the knee thing a couple of times to make sure it is not stuck. It should move freely up and down. That may fix the problem. If not, look st the small post to the left and behind the oil intake. Move the manual presserfoot lever on the machine to see it move. It will be stiff, but it should still lift a little. Usually jigging these two parts will fix the problem. Good luck..

Juki ddl 555 knee lifter is not lifting the foot. How can I fix it?

I imagine that it is the mechanical knee lift that you actually lift with your knee? Sometimes the screw that holds the knee lift rod comes loose a little and starts to slide in the holder. Sit on the floor where you can see the underneath of your table and use a wrench or vise grip to loosen the bracket that holds your knee lift bar with the pad on it. Move the bar to the left and retighten the screw and I think you will be ok. Sometimes if there is too much oil in your pan or you have moved the machine and some of the oil spilled out, a little oil gets out of the pan onto the bar and makes it start to slip. If that doesn't work we'll try something else.

The belt on my consew 7360 sewing machine wont turn handwheel when pressing foot pedal to stitch.

Your belt may be to tight you can loosen the belt at the wheel under the table. Loosen the screws and shift so the belt loosens.

I have a horn cabinet bought in 1987 and I can't

The old Horn lifts had vertical rails on the sides and the newer style has one center support. Push the lever up and press down on the platform to lower, push up on the lever and the platform should raise. If it binds, the plastic slides are broken or if the cables are loose, then the lift is likely broken.

I need a manual for my necchi sewing machine. IT is cast iron and the machine lifts up from the centre of the table. It was my mother-in-law's and I do not know wht model it is. I am guessing on the model...

Contact Allyn International in Denver Co. They are the importers for Necchi and should be able to give you your closest dealer or sell you the book themselves. Their Phone is: 1-800-525-9987
