If you loosen the locking screw, it should slide right on the mounting post. You might need to twist it or try from different directions.

Pressure foot wont go fully down


The pressure foot is only made to push down on the material, not the feed dogs. If you put it too low it will destroy the feed dogs and the pressure foot as well as the material.
1. To adjust, lower the pressure of the pressure foot as much as you can.
2. Place a thick piece of material under the foot. Turn the hand wheel until the feed dogs are up.
3. The pressure foot rod has a screw that holds it into place. You will adjust the rod by moving it up and down until there is a small amount of pressure on the material. Tighten the screw and try your machine without a needle to see if the material will move. Now, try other thicknesses of material. The rod may need to be slightly adjusted a small amount to get it "just right".
4. PUT IN NEEDLE AND CHECK FOR ALIGNMENT TO THE HOLE. (DANGER IF NOT ALIGNED).

Why doesn't the pressure foot fall correctly


Open up the side cover, put a couple drops of oil where you see the spring covered shaft against the back of the machine. Move your level up and down until it begins to move freely. Use sewing machine oil only. 3-in-1 creates a sticky residue that will gum up your machine.

The upper thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


You should do this by putting very slight pressure on the foot control (or turning the wheel by hand) with the machine's pressure foot up. Then pull the threads by hand to the back of the machine. If the upper thread does not catch the lower thread then the bobbin is not correctly threaded in the bobbin case.

I have the juki TL 98Q and the presser foot will not go up or down. The lever in the back moves but the foot stays up.


It could be as simple as the set screw in the lifting collar has came loose. If you open the end piece and raise the lever in the back up and down you should be able to see if the collar is loose. It will be on the pressure bar and it is the piece the lever pushes on to lift the foot. If just loose you have to put it to where it needs to be on pressure bar to lift it high enough and tighten the set screw.

Computer stuck on "Raise presser foot lever" when I want to embroider


I fixed myself. When you take off the front left cover to expose inner workings o0f pressure foot lever, move the pressure foot lever see, the small metal plate move, when looking from back of machine see a small post upper left rear with what kooks to be a spring, lightly touch causing to spring back to the left and you will hear a snap. This is realigning pressure foot and your embroidery unit will register and you will have a normal lcd screen.This helped me, hope helps you.

Pressure foot too high


On the top of the machine directly above the pressure foot should be a post with a knurled knob-like nut. You adjust pressure foot tension there.

But before you go doing that are you sure you've put down the pressure foot?

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

I purchased an Elna 7000 on E-Bay.Wonderful machine. I also purchased a 492000-20 walking foot for it. I can not find instructions on how to attach the walking foot to the machine.


I'm assuming that this is a generic style walking foot for low shank machines and it will fit your Elna?
To attach it, you will see a long lever arm at the front of the foot and the little curved bracket at the back of the foot.

Remove your usual foot and the clip on foot holder by undoing the thumb screw. Now fit the walking foot on instead by putting the lever arm around the needle bar and the curved bracket around the pressure bar and then putting the thumb screw back into place and screw up tight to hold the foot in place. Now lower the pressure foot and manually wind your machine forward a few stitches. As the needle bar goes up and down, it should move the long lever arm too which works the walking foot teeth gripping the top layer of fabric with each stitch.

Trust this helps.

I have a Simplicity Denim Expert sewing machine it's about 5 or six years old but an excellent machine I need to know how to put the foot that holds down the material back on the long iron piece that...


Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.

Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.

You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.

You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/simplicity-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

Hope this helps!

Pfaff Select 4.0 has looping on bottom of fabric, free motion qui


Make sure your are lowering the pressure foot first before you start sewing. With the free motion foot, you still have to lower the pressure foot, this allows tension to be put on the top thread and allows the foot to work properly (when the needle goes down so should the foot and when the needle comes up it should lift the foot up.)

Also make sure your tensions are in a middle setting and that you are threading the machine with the pressure foot up.

The way to insure you will not get your problem is with the foot up, you should be able to pull the thread easily right before the eye of the needle and when you put the foot down you should then feel a fair bit of tension on the top thread.

hope that helps :)
