I have a 7570 Phfaff creative. The Presser foot leaver and shaft is slow to drop down or not at all. I have used the machine oil on the shaft and cleaned with a q-tip. It works for a short time and then will go back to the slow drop down or not drop at all. Any ideas?
Thanks from down South..

Have you checked for something stuck in it? Even a small pin can do a lot of damage and jam the spring. Give it a good shake. If you can't get inside, try taking a vacuum nozzle over it.
Fortunately the foot pedal is probably the easiest part of a sewing machine to replace if it is damaged beyond repair..
there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.
Around the bobbin track, a drop should do. Anywhere else uses a different viscosity oil and grease. If you oil parts besides the above mentioned, you have lint build up and that's going to slow things down.
Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.
