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.

Presser foot wont connect


It is most likely the presser foot you are trying to install was not made for your machine. There are so many machines available and most of those machines have their own presser feet, which are not interchangeable. Unfortunately, even a Singer presser foot is not interchangeable with other Singers. Some have screw attachments, others have lever attachments, some have long shanks, others have short, some are straight, others are slanted. You need to figure out what style presser foot your machine takes and then search for either the presser feet that fit or a shank adapter that you can then use snap-on feet (kits are available on eBay).

How do you get the pressure foot to stay attached?


Most presser feet are held on with a screw that holds the presser foot via hole through the needle bar, or other machines use a lever that moves up and down to latch the presser foot in place.

Would be best to consult your owner's manual. If you don't have one, search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

How can I make my presser foot stay up on a ult2002d machine? There is nothing in my manual .I treid unpluging and still not working. If you have a soluition to the problem may I tell others online?There...


If you are lifting the presser foot and it sorta holds then drops down.....its probably worn and needs replacing. If the machine is well used thats usually the culprit. There is a lob on the presser foot lever that wears and causes it to not stay up. No easy solution other than changing the part.....best left to a pro.

Presser foot stopped working I turned


Did you connect your machine then press the foot control before you lowered you presser foot? I have a CS6000 and that is what E1 means on my machine. You did not put your model number in so I don't know. You can look in your manual or go online to www.brother-usa.com and look it up for your machine. Try unplugging and plugging it in again, but put your presser foot down then step on your foot pedal.

Viking Designer 1 presser foot will not stay down


The foot should come up slightly above the fabric when in embroidery mode. If not, the fabric could not move.
The foot should come up the same distance that it would if you were to put the foot in the pivot position while sewing. If it is coming up more than that, then you have a problem and will need to see and authorized technician.
