Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
On some machines, you can lighten the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. (Some machines do not have this capability.) But, you don't want to adjust the height of the presser foot.
If the fabric is pushing in front of the presser foot as you are sewing, you might want to try using a walking foot, a teflon foot, or a roller foot.
Kenmore 158 13360 Sewing Machine If this is like your machine, the pressure adjustment is the upright pin at the top left side of the machine. The inner pin pushes down (in various degrees), the further it is pushed down, the more pressure the presser foot applies. To release the inner pin, press down on the outer ring of the pin. It will snap back up where you can again push the inner pin down in degrees. BTW, it is a good idea to always release this pressure pin when you store the machine. If not, what happens is, over time the spring that applies the pressure becomes compressed and no longer applies pressure like it should.
