Presser foot problem

The machine is telling me that the foot is raised when it's actually lowered completely. I've used the dial on the left and tried every setting, 1-9, and it still just beeps at me. Thoughts?

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Looking for how to lower the pressure foot on model 16782


Are you talking about presser foot pressure--the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs?

Some machines have a dial that can raise or lower the pressure.

Some machines have a screw located at the top of the presser foot bar that can be tightened or loosened. (Unfortunately, manufacturers usually did not include this information in the user's manual.)

Even older machines sometimes have a spring-loaded push-button on the top left of the machine. When pushed in, it collapses the spring that applies less or more pressure to the presser foot. The inner button actually applies the pressure in "degrees" which is regulated by how far the button is pushed in. To release this pressure button, press on the outside ring to release the spring. (Incidentally, it is a good practice to release this spring when you are finished sewing. Storing it with the spring compressed may eventually cause the spring to lose its effectiveness.)

My Singer XL 6000 upper thread is too tight and keeps breaking, when the presser foot is up the upper thread is loose, but when the presser foot is lowered the threah gets too tight, what I notice is that...


You need to loosen the tension on the machine. There is a dial that has numbers on it. The higher the dial is set, the tighter the tension is. Turn the dial to the left one number. Then try it. Do it over and over. Do not turn the dial all the way down or you will mess up your machine. Do it slowly, one number at a time and try the machine between dials.

Sewing makes huge loops on the bottom of the cloth


The loops on the bottom mean there's very little tension on the top thread.

Back to the loopies.... Somewhere on your machine, there's a tension mechanism. On older machines, it's circular and has (usually) a numbered dial. On newer machines, it may just appear as a slot with a dial someplace with numbers 0-9 on it. In either case, the thread has to go between two metal disks, which are the tension elements. In order to get the thread in properly, you must raise the presser foot, which opens the disks. Then you can "floss" the thread in. Not raising the presser foot during threading is, in my experience, the most common cause of bottom loopies.

Other common causes of loopies:
--Trying to sew with the presser foot in the raised position (this usually happens when you're brand new to sewing or you're trying to sew something thick that just barely fits under the presser foot -- and you forget to lower the presser foot after you've put the fabric under.

--Changing the setting on the upper tension dial. 4 to maybe 5 should give you proper tension for most types of sewing. Sometimes (often helpful, knob-twiddling family members) reset it to a much lower number.

--Cruddlies in the tension -- impacted lint, a bit of broken thread, rust, This is usually curable by taking a fold of much-washed cotton muslin (the hem of a pillowcase or a bandanna is great for this), moistening it with rubbing alcohol, and flossing the tension with it. If you get rust out, you'll need a replacement tension (they're not all that expensive, mostly). In some cases, the machine was abused by running something like #69 upholstery nylon thread through it (it's too heavy for most home machines) and the disks are damaged and need replacement.

--The thread is too heavy for the size of needle. This happens when you're trying to run something like topstitching thread with a small sized needle. The thread doesn't sit down in the long groove of the needle properly, and so lacks tension.

Hyundai 8 stitch sewing machine confused beginner!?????


Not familiar with your machine, but an important suggestion for all sewing machines:

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. If you did not do this, remove the top thread completely from the machine and start over by RAISING the presser foot and following the thread path. (Do NOT miss any thread guides or thread any out of order!)

Lower the presser foot and thread the needle. (The top thread will pull through the needle ONLY if the presser foot is raised!) RAISE the presser foot and pull at least 5 inches of thread through the needle. Insert your fabric. Lower the presser foot. Hold the thread tail gently in your left hand and with the right hand manually turn the handwheel one rotation. The needle should pull the bobbin thread up through the fabric.

While still holding the top thread tail, "sweep" under the presser foot with a stiletto, scissors, a nail file (anything that will fit under the presser foot) to pull the remaining bobbin thread tail above the fabric. Grab both thread tails and pull them under the presser foot toward the back of the machine. Now, you are ready to take your first stitch.

You can gently hold those thread tails while you slowly power the machine to take the first couple of stitches on your fabric.

I have a Baby Lock 5280E. Can you tell me how to set the machine for rolled hem?


Assuming you mean a narrow rolled edge:
  1. Remove the left needle and thread.
  2. Open both the front and side covers.
  3. Raise the presser foot and the upper knife to the highest position.
  4. Clear the stitch fingers.
  5. Push the stitch with former release lever and remove the stitch former from the lower knife base. (Don't lose it!)
  6. Turn the stitch with adjusting dial until the "M" on the dial matches the red indicator on the needle plate.
  7. Set the stitch width length to "M".
  8. Close the covers, lower the presser foot and the upper knife.
This gives you a narrow edge. To roll the edge, increase the tension of the lower looper (the green knob) about three numbers higher than normal.

How do I install my darning foot?


First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.

Presser foot lever won't lower the foot


This may be a lubrication problem on the presser foot shaft. Try freeing up with penetrating oil or Triflow. After letting set for an hour lower the presser foot and pull down on the ankle. If that does not work you need to open the machine and loosen the clamp screw on the presser foot shaft. Then try to twist the shaft to loosen it up.

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger


Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.
