Do you have a stitch picked? If not it does know what you want.
Watch the dvd that came with your machine and read your manual.

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).

Can you adjust the needle assembly up higher for thicker garments like thicker coats etc. on Kenmore sewing mach. model 158-13360


On some machines, you can lighten the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric. (Some machines do not have this capability.) But, you don't want to adjust the height of the presser foot.

If the fabric is pushing in front of the presser foot as you are sewing, you might want to try using a walking foot, a teflon foot, or a roller foot.

Kenmore 158 13360 Sewing Machine If this is like your machine, the pressure adjustment is the upright pin at the top left side of the machine. The inner pin pushes down (in various degrees), the further it is pushed down, the more pressure the presser foot applies. To release the inner pin, press down on the outer ring of the pin. It will snap back up where you can again push the inner pin down in degrees. BTW, it is a good idea to always release this pressure pin when you store the machine. If not, what happens is, over time the spring that applies the pressure becomes compressed and no longer applies pressure like it should.

No knob to adjust presser foot pressure. Space between feed dogs & presser foot is too tight to pull a piece of fabric out with foot down. Diagonal seams get pushed out.


You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.

Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.

Why foot will not depress enough


Presser foot pressure is adjustable. Open the head cover and look for the presser foot shaft behind the light. On most models there is a spring around the presser foot shaft that pushes on a collar. The collar is adjustable (higher up pushes down more) and held on with a socket head screw (use a hex wrench).

Pfaff 6091 Presser foot won't go all the way down


HAVE THE 6091 MACHINE AND THE FOOT IS NOT FROZEN BUT WON'T GO DOWN. OILING THE MACHINE DID NOT HELP AT ALL. HAD A REPAIR MAN COME TO THE HOME AND CLEAN THE MACHINE. STILL THE FOOT WILL NOT GO DOWN.

The foot doesn't go down enough to reach the feed dogs


The presser bar may be stuck and may need some WD40 on the top so it seeps down the needle bar, or the presser foot dial or adjuster is set to 0, or the presser bar spring has broken, or the block and screw on the presser bar where the lever is has come loose.

I removed the presser foot of my Singer 6235 machine, and am not able to push down the presser foot screw to snap in the presser foot I'd like to sew with.


I just looked at your free manual on the www.singerco.com site and it looks a little complicated to do, Do you think that maybe downloading the manual and enlarging the diagrams on pages 10 & 11 may help you? If not, call Singer customer service, at 1-800-4singer and ask for some advice. Good luck

Try lowering the presser foot lever one click down (needle down presser foot up position). You maybe in the bobbin winding mode that is why it is locked up for your safety, you don't want to puncture any body part while winding the bobbin. It locks up the needle and the balance wheel while it allows the winder to spin.
