Hi,

you can start searching thrift stores, you might be able to transplant or rewire one off another machine if your handy, they all have just about the same resistance.

good luck

    hi ,



    woops I just realized you meant pressure foot for the fabric, thought you meant presser foot for the speed control. keep checking back on ebay though, one may come up, might have to get a used machine at the thrift store untill you can find that part, new ones are expensive OMG huh?

Brother LS 1520 I was in zig zag mode and broke a needle. Now that I have replaced the needle, the needle thread will not pick up bobbin thread.


Are you sure that you replaced your needle right? The flat side must face the rear of the machine and did you put your needle on a straight stitch? I hope it didn't mess up your timing. But try this and I have my fingers crossed for you that it is something simple.

Can not get the tension right, to loose


The pressure foot has to be down to adjust the tension. Sometimes the tension on the bobbin can be wrong and it can appear to be the tension on top.

The pressure foot will not run the machine you have to push very hard the the machine goes very fast.


meed a little more info, make sure the pressure foot is in the down position,

what do you mean you have to push very hard, are you pushing on the fabric to fo under the needle,

if the presure foot is down, check the manual on how to adjust the pressure it may be to tight and need to loosen it
