Question about Singer 1725

1 Answer

The vertical presser bar won't budge, even though the lever moves up and down

The presser bar will not move up and down, even though the lever works. I've taken off the face plate and can not figure out what needs to be oiled or how to fix it. The springs are not gunked up. I have photos to add if that would help.

SOURCE: Presser foot lever stuck

You lever doesn't work because the presser foot Bar is seized from lack of use.Open the side of the machine to access the bar. Put a mixture of water and ammonia ( about 80%water 20% ammonia) on the top and bottom of the bar. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes then try to move the presser foot Up by lifting the foot with a screw driver. Do not pry so hard you break something. It should get progressively easy the more times you do this. Put some sewing machine oil on the top and bottom of the shaft and it should be good to go.

SOURCE: My presser foot bar moves

I just looked at your manual on www.singerco.com and all I can see is that maybe, your chosen stitch length is not long enough, or your feed dogs are not up. Another possibility could be tangled thread or fabric is too slippery(try some tissue paper under fabric) check your needle size. If, you misplaced your manual it is free on the above website. Good luck, sometimes machines are just being ornery.

it's possible that the presser bar could be bent or damaged, the only way to know what is exactly wrong would be to take it to a sewing machine repair shop

The presser foot on my Singer Touch & Sew 756 is stuck in the up position. I can move the lever up and down but the presser foot will not move. Any suggestions.


Very common thing because the presser bar is always very tight in the housing, all you need to do is put some easing oil or wd40 on the bar and physically move the bar up and down and it will free off

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?

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

Started sewing backwards now not moving material at all


Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.

Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.

Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.

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.

What instructions are there for a brother nx400 even-feed foot


Remove the screw holding the regular presser foot and the presser foot holder and set aside.

Place the take-up lever in the highest position.

Hold the even feed foot with your right hand with your thumb holding the lever of the foot in its highest position. Place the even feed foot on the presser bar and make sure that the lever of the foot rests upon the needle bar thumbscrew. While holding it in place, fasten the foot to the presser bar with the screw.

As the needle bar goes up and down, the lever on the even feed foot should rest on the needle bar needle serew and go up and down as well.

The presser bar is not moving, there is a set screw that controls the presser foot height on the bar, it may be to tight. Take the side cover off, and look for the presser bar, the set screw unit should be facing you. Unscrew it and see if the presser bar handel will now move.

The presser bar height should be set at 7 mm. To make an adjustment loosen the set screw. From the top of the machine, press down firmly on the presser bar and then secure the set screw.
