The pressure foot release lever lifts the pressure foot up, but it does not go down with the lever. I have to manually pull it down. After pulling it down, it does go up with the lever.
The machine is in great shape. It is about 8 years old and was used heavily for the first three years. However, it has been rarely used the last three years.
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.

1. Take the top off.
2. Look at the back of the tension mechanism while you move the pressure foot lever.
3. You will see an arm go up against the back of the tension mechanism. This pushes the tension disc forward to release pressure.
4. Yours isn't doing this. The screw that holds the tension mechanism is likely to be loose.
5. Pull the foot in the up position.
6. Unscrew the tension mechanism a little more. Now push in on the mechanism and tighten.
7. Now you can try to see if this has worked.
the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.
I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.
To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.
I get the same beeping when I forget to pull down the buttonhole lever
if you have the automatic buttonhole & the buttonhole foot that you have to put a button in,,check & see if there is a buttonhole lever that has to be pulled down, it will be a lever to the left of the needle bar
You need to get access to the pressure foot bar area. Open the side cover if you can and look to see where the pressure foot lifter lever meets the pressure foot bar lifting block. Maybe the block has sliped upward. You'll need to loosen the screw, slide the block down a bit, tighten the screw, and check to see if this works. (Not knowing what machine you have)
if you have a automatic buttonhole , then you should have a buttonhole lever that you have to pull down, before you start to do the buttonhole,, my machine will not let me do a buttonhole unless I pull down the buttonhole lever
This happened to me and I eventually realized that there is a small door flap at the top near the "4" in the threading series that can get stuck open. Normally this flap goes up and down with the presser foot, but if it gets stuck open even when the presser foot is down, tapping it or closing it manually will make the error go away.
