    The pressure foot leaver probably has a loose screw of lever. You really should have a professional Sew-Vac person look at it. Check your local phone directory for one near you.

The pressure foot will not lower/ seems like the pressure foot lifter is stripped or missing something...when I raise it, it falls back down but the pressure foot remains in the lifted position


Most likely something has become disconnected or misaligned. Perhaps it is time for a routine service call to your local sewing machine shop.

Sounds like the linkage between the lifter and foot is caput. If you open the case, you void the warranty.

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.

The presser foot lifter on my machine is not engaging this allows the needle assembly to spin - is there a way to fix this?


Your question is not clear. The pressure foot lifter only lifts the pressure foot. It doesn't make the needle spin.

GOOD DAY, THE ELNA 9000 WHICH I HAVE JUST BOUGHT 2ND HAND HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE PRESSSURE FOOT HANDLE. IT DOES NOT STAY IN PLACE, BUT KEEPS ON FALLING DOWN, AS IF A SPRING IS WORN OUT AND THE COTTON MAKES...


No pressure being applied to the pressure foot and therefore the fabric between it and the feed dogs means no feeding of the fabric.

The pressure foot has a spring up inside the head of the machine and this is probably broken causing this fault.

I would suggest that you take the machine to your local SM service technician..

Hello I have a singer model 4552 I cant make the pressure foot stay up...the lever doesnt raise the foot high enough what doi do?


I have a used unit with the same problem. If you remove the plastic housing piece on the far left you can see how the foot lifter works. Raising the lever raises a collar around the main shaft. There is a screw in that collar which connects the collar with the shaft. If that screw is loose the collar will not raise the shaft. Caution: Tighten the screw very carefully, only enough so that the shaft lifts. I just overtightened and the collar has a crack now.

On my singer 9005 the pressure foot lifter does not stay in the up position - does not hold the pressure foot up.


These plastic presser bar lifters do wear out a lot ,very common,,,,,,,,You can lift it up and file as close to the machine side on top just a couple of stroke son the file will usually give it a surface to hang on and it will stay up ,much easier than changing the plastic lever
