Question about Kenmore 19233 Computerized Sewing Machine
Where is the pressure regulator? my old Kenmore had a springloaded 'thing' that you could depress or release to adjust how much pressure was used in holding/feeding the fabric. can't find it on the new one, can't find it mentioned in the user manual. it causes one layer of the fabric to shift. also, how do I get a diagram of the inside of the machine?
I just bought a 19233 and am a bit surprised that it doesn't have a presser foot regulator. My White did have it and I did have to use it, especially when sewing on heavy fleeces, etc. I'm hoping that the 19233 is "smart" enough to self-adjust when the fabric is thick. We'll see. I noticed that there is a feed balancing dial (see #19 on the diagram of the machine, page 2 of instruction book)but there is nothing in the instructions about how to use this. I have not yet come across a situation requiring presser foot adjustment but if I do, and I'm having a lot of problems, I might tinker with this feed balance dial. I don't know if this helps but I thought I'd mention it. Good luck and happy sewing.

The 19233 hasn't got a presser foot regulator on it. Not all sewing machines do, especially the newer ones, although there is a Kenmore that is more expensive that does. I haven't needed it al all anyway, and am not used to it on any other machine. I used to have this on my Pfaff, but never used it.
