SOURCE: Simplicity 4 thread EZLock 880 pressor foot settings

Easiest way to get the tensions right, use 4 different coloured threads

Make sure the tension disks are clean........run a length of fabric in a see saw fashion through each tension unit.

....set all the dials to 3 or 4 then sew test.......take a look at what needs attention, make a small adjustment and test/adjust until the needle threads are firm and the looper threads meet neatly at the edge of the fabric with just the absolutely tiniest hint of being loose.

SOURCE: When I push the pressor foot down my machine flashes E1

Is the presser foot lever up or down? It should be down before you step on the foot controller or use the start/stop button.

SOURCE: where to find a not snap-on 1/4" with edge pressor

Go to www.allbrands.com and you can buy a low shank screw on presser foot. I am assuming that it is a low shank. (I looked up your manual on www.singerco.com for free) It is $14.95, I think. Good luck

SOURCE: have lost the zipper foot for a pfaff hobbymatic

You should be able to buy another foot, but you'll need to know if it is a high shank or a clip on style. Try this link to www.sewingpartsonline.com http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/pfaff-sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx they have two invisible zipper feet and two clip on ones. Don't mention your model but you should be able to email and ask if you aren't sure. I'd expect that the feet would be interchangeable between the models in the same era as yours. Just ignore the long funny shaped feet, they are for Pfaff sergers.

Bar that sewng foot is attached to for raising & lowering suddenly will not drop sweing foot all the way down to plate. Any suggestions on how to fix?


It sounds like something is blocking the lever from coming all the way down. Clean and oil. Look for bits of lint or fabric. Use a flashlight and look very carefully and you may be able to see the obstruction.

Perhaps you accidently moved the switch that enables free hand embroidery? It's up and under next to the pressor foot lever. Slides forward and backward. Forward the pressor foot will go all the way down to the feed dogs. Slid back and it keeps the foot up off the feed dogs but allows the thread tension to work properly. It would be easy to accidently move it when operating the pressor foot raise/lower lever.

I need a free pfaff hobbymatic 917 instruction manual


For many of the Phaff machines, you can search and find your machine at this link, and download the .pdf file, then print out. This is FREE, no charge, and available to anyone. I searched and found it by luck. Note, your model may be included in other model numbers. My wife's Phaff Hobbymatic 927(Made in West Germany) manual includes the 917 and 947 models. Good luck, hope this helps.

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.
