Question about PfaFF Quilt & Craft Pro 7530

1 Answer

Pressor foot will not move down. How do I fix that?

I push it down, sometimes it will let me sometimes it will not. Oiled it work in slow motion for a time, but now is stuck up again. Feed dogs do not grab my fabric while sewing so seams are not straight.

It's probably seizing up. You should take it in to be serviced.

Kenmore Sewing Machine Model 385.16221 feed dog is stuck down,m the lever just does nothing. It lowered feed dog, then was useless when I went to raise it to position.


your machine will have a flip type opening at the very front of your machine above the area where the needles are attached to the arm that moves up and down ( it usually has the light globe installed in there ) after opening that door you will see where the dog feed is attached to it should also have a spring that helps the dog feed return to the up position when not in use , make sure it is not stuck in any way and some lubrication oil should be used to prevent it from sticking , while using the dog feed release button push the spring in a up and down motion to help it to dislodge

Given Pfaff 297-1 sewing machine for charity work everthing seems to be right but it does not feed - the feedogs seem to be too low. It's sewing steadily on the spot.


Could be the feed dogs are lowered to do darning. Here's a manual:

PFAFF 294 Instruction Book Page 11

See if the A/B switch makes any difference in the feed dogs.

Sometimes these old machines haven't been oiled like they should and it's possible the feed dogs are stuck in the lowered position. Also, if it was used a lot the feed dogs get worn and no longer work like they should.

To turn free motion on their is a switch that does this. If the switch is turned on the feed dog will go under the plate and stay their. It will begin to operate again if you turn the free motion switch off.

I lowered the feed dogs on my Bernini 1000 for quilting and now cannot raise them. Help?


Have you recently thoroughly cleaned and oiled your machine? If not, the feed dogs could be stuck in the dropped position due to lack of fresh oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Also, remember that the feed dogs will not rise again until the machine actually begins to stitch.

I want to free hand machine quilt - but it won't work when I drop the foot


You need an embroidery foot, that doesn't lay on the fabric like a normal foot and allows free motion of the fabric. If you are using one, be sure it is the appropriate foot for your machine and that you have pushed the appropriate button or place on your machine so that the machine will place the foot in the correct position.

Singer 4423 feed dogs are not working properly. Tested and verified that this happens without any thread in the machine. The dogs are not lowered. We've cleaned it and still no luck.


Now, I'm assuming that you pushed the feed dog lever in the back to the left successfully. If you couldn't make it move, try pushing the lever down and then to the left. You don't see any difference when that happens, because the feed dogs are actually ALWAYS down -- during ordinary sewing, they rise up to grab and push the fabric, then go down again. Turn the hand wheel (ALWAYS towards you) while looking at the feed dogs and see if they rise up during the cycle. I'll bet you DID lower them, but didn't realize it. What is actually does when you lower them is disengage the mechanism that makes them go up and down.

One more thing -- to set them in the up position again, you have to set the lever, then turn the hand wheel several times -- sometimes as much as five cycles -- and then you'll hear a click. That is true of ALL sewing/embroidery machines.

Where do I put oil


Oil is placed where there are two pieces of metal rubbing together.
1. You must look for moving parts while moving the hand wheel. 2. There are some holes on the frame to give you access areas that need to be oiled..
3. The bobbin rides on an indented area called the race. Place one drop at this location frequently.
4. The motion of the needle arm going up and down between two holes needs to be oiled.
5. The pressure foot has a movement of a steel tube (arm) that needs oiled every now and then. The up and down motion of the pressure foot switch has two pieces of steel rubbing together in order to raise and lower the foot. It is important to oil here and on the spring that is inside the tube.
Anyway; make sure you look for steel against steel and oil it.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

I lowered the feed dogs for the first time to free motion quilt. Now I cannot raise them. Moving the button to the rights has no effect at all.


Some machines need the dial put in a certain position, try moving it about as you try to move the feed dogs. The presser foot must always be up.
