Open Question

Is there a sensor that reads the amount of fabric under the presser foot? I get a pop up message, the presser foot is too high, and there is no fabric under it.

SOURCE: Can I loosen the presser foot so knits will not stretch

Pressure on the pressure foot can be adjusted on some machines by turning the knob on the top leftside of the machine directly above the needle assembly. Look for a knob that has fabric types on it and adjust accordingly. Also check your thread tensions.

SOURCE: Presser foot adjustment for fine fabric

Hi there, On the top of the machine in the left corner, there should be a knob of sorts. If you turn it to the right, it will releases some of the tension on the fabric. But you don't want to loosen it too much otherwise you won't feed the fabric thru at all.

You should be able to adjust the pressure on the presser foot. Check your user manual or see an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for assistance. They are usually eager to help. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Error message foot too high. To correct this, it is necessary to restart the machine. Unless it is impossible to continue sewing.What is the problem?


Hi,
Try taking your presser foot off and lower the presser foot lever. Does the error code go away? The machine won't sew without the presser foot to hold the fabric down, but without threading the needle, will the machine run without the presser foot? Now try the standard presser foot (usually J ) and if you get the error code then the sensor at the top of the presser foot assembly is out of adjustment. Without knowing more about your machine this is all I can suggest.
Good luck,
Bob

How do I change tension when I'm sewing a thro for a bed and the material is thick?


You probably need to change the "presser foot pressure" if your machine has the function. It increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. You can also try using a walking foot, teflon foot, or roller foot to see if it helps feed the fabric and make a more even stitch.

Janine Jem platinum 760, ,needle just going up and down, have cleaned and checked feed dogs are up and moving help what's wrong, are the dogs too low is there a adjuster can't find it ?


Make sure the stitch length is set high enough to actually advance the fabric--the feed dogs actually need to move forward and backward.. The stitch length control controls how much the feed dogs move the fabric. Also, check if your machine has a presser foot pressure control. This manages the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric, causing the feed dogs to grip the fabric in their movement.

If these do not resolve the issue, you may need to take it for service.

Why when Sewing a seam, the fabric on top stretches


The top fabric is stretching as you stitch? Most likely, the presser foot pressure is too high. There is usually an adjustment for the pressure that the presser foot applies to the fabric. You can also try using a roller foot, teflon foot, or walking foot that will assist the fabric to feed through the machine.

Model 60-7000M. All works except foot rest. It will not close. Help!


Not sure what you mean by foot "rest." If it is presser foot, then you may not have the correct presser foot for your machine (basically, there are 3 types--low shank, high shank, & slant shank). Usually, there is also a pressure adjustment for the presser foot that increases the amount of pressure applied to the fabric and feed dogs. Consult your owner manual. Pressure adjustment is usually either a dial, a plunger type on the top left of the machine (pushing down increases the pressure--push down on the outer ring to release it), or a screw at the very top of the presser foot bar (sometimes under the top lid).

My 880 is puckering when I stitch


Puckering is usually a result of incorrect tension, ie too tight. Be sure you are using a new needle and thread that are compatible with the fabric you are stitching. A heavier thread like Coats & Clark cotton-wrapped polyester may be too thick for sewing silk. Another thing you may want to check is the presser foot pressure adjustment (the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs). This should be discussed in your user's manual. Something else that may help is using a walking foot or teflon foot that allows the fabric to advance smoother, rather than the presser foot "pushing" the fabric as it advances through the machine.

Another thing that may be contributory is the type of fabric. Some fine fabrics, ie silk, chiffon, have a natural tendency to pucker.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

How To Use Walking Foot
How to Use Roller Foot

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

Not feeding material.


Tension generally does not affect the feed unless it is way too tight. Most reasons for fabric not advancing under the presser foot is that the feed dogs have been dropped for darning. If the feed dogs are operating properly, as the handwheel turns the feed dogs should rise above the plate, move toward the back of the machine pulling the fabric, drop down, come forward and rise again.

The other possibility is that the presser foot pressure has been released so the presser foot is not holding the fabric down on the feed dogs. Some machines have a spring-loaded knob on the top of the machine, a dial, or something to adjust the amount of pressure the foot applies. Consult your owner's manual.

Why does the backing gather up even though it is penned and sprayed with quilting spray


Presser foot tension is to low for the weight/finish of the fabric, or bottom dogs are worn.
  • The feed dog feeds the fabric under the presser foot while you guide the fabric.


  • The feed dog regulates the stitch length by how much fabric passes under the presser foot as the machine stitches.


  • It is important for you to not push and pull the fabric under the presser foot. Allow the feed dog to move the fabric, so that you do not bend and break sewing machine needles.
Hope this helps.
