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.

SOURCE: The Presser Bar on my Singer 66 does not move up or down when I use the Presser Bar Lever. It seems to be stuck solid and therefore it will not lower onto the feed dogs to enable me to sew. The Presse

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

This could be a couple things. First it could be your presser foot pressure is not high enough or the presser bar is sticking and not pushing on the fabric properly. Second it could be broken feed gears. To check this remove the needle and foot and place a finger on the feed dogs. Then turn the hand wheel and feel if the feed dogs are still moving with the pressure of you holding them down. If the stop moving the you most likely have a broken gear or two. The first problem could be resolved by adjusting the setting of the needle bar pressure or oiling the bar if sticking. The second one needs a sewing machine repair person,

My presser foot "handle" is stuck on my Pfaff Creative 7550, I can't move it to use my machine. I don't see anything wrong, any suggestions?


Yikes! I bet that since it has sat for so long that you have some corrosion not allowing the foot bar to be moved.

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.

My machine makes a "knocking" sound.


Needle bar probably catch the presser foot, because it does not return the the right position. Clean and oil the presser foot assembly. There is no tension adjustment there. It should move freely about 1 cm.

The foot doesn't go down enough to reach the feed dogs


The presser bar may be stuck and may need some WD40 on the top so it seeps down the needle bar, or the presser foot dial or adjuster is set to 0, or the presser bar spring has broken, or the block and screw on the presser bar where the lever is has come loose.

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

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.

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.
