Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

When I raise the lever the presser foot only lifts a bit at the end of the motion and doesn't stay up. Is the foot supposed to remain up after the lever is raised? In the first 40 degrees of motion...


yes, pressure foot lever should stay raised, this sounds like the spring has broken in your machine. if you are comfortable with delving into the machine you could open it up and take a look. alternatively take it to a sewing repair man and get it serviced as well as clean and lube.

I cant figure out how to install the buttonhole foot


Do you just need to attach it to the machine? Or are you having trouble using the foot itself?
It attaches the same way the other feet attach. Remove any foot that may still be attached to the machine. On the buttonhole foot look for the small silver pin that sits on the sliding piece with the small red line marks on it. Lift up your presser foot lever and attach the buttonhole foot's silver pin the same way you would attach any other foot.

As far as using the foot itself place your button on the back sliding piece snuggly till it fits in without falling out, adjust as needed. Pull the bottonhole lever down (it's located on the machine opposite the side of the presser foot lever) so that it rests behind the first lever on the buttonhole foot (small plastic piece raised on the left hand side of the foot that doesn't move). Slide the feed dog switch on the back of your machine so the feed dogs go down. Select your stitch and go. The machine automatically stops when done.

Hope this helps!

The foot lever has gotten jamed and now i cant lift it or lower it. can the tension spring be the problem?


The tension has nothing to do with the foot lever.

However, the foot lever has an effect on the tension controller.

When the foot lever is up, the tension is open.

When the foot lever is down, the tension is closed.

If the lever will not release when you lift it as high as possible, you will need to take the machine in for service.

Hi I have a Husqvarna 1+ when the pressor foot is in the down position a warning indicator states that the pressor foot is not down and the machine will not function.Any sugestions would be greatly...


The problem could be caused by a couple of issues. It is either with the switch that is located above the foot, that tells the circuit board when the foot is up or down, or with the circuit board itself. It could also be the lever you lift the foot up and down with. Inside the machine that lever has a plastic "fin" on it that touches the switch. It is possible that the lever is broken. Either way, you need to take it in for service.

Pfaff 6122 Problem


Your machine just needs to be tuned up an the part inside that lower and raises the presser foot needs to be re-lubricated.  Lint, dust, dryness and the machine not being used can cause this issue with most pfaff machines (including my 7570).  A standard tune up from your local PFAFF dealer will remedy this.
