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).

I need help with the outside walking foot on a singer211 it has to much pressure on it I need to know how to adjust.


I am NOT familiar with your Singer model 211, BUT.... Most machines [most brands too] have a knurlled screw knob on top which is attached to the long vertical shaft upon which the foot is mounted at the bottom.

"Normally," turning this screw clockwise tends to increase the foot pressure, while counterclockwise rotation tends to loosen the spring pressure on the foot!

Bernina 1230 Is there a way to adjust the pressure on the presser foot?


Just checked on U-Tube there are several video's there for problems, otherwise there is a spring at the top of the needle shaft that can be loosened. Good Luck!

Using a walking foot on my Necchi 3537


Hi JoEllen,
The walking foot replaces the normal pressure foot on your machine. There is a screw on the left-hand side of the pressure shaft that holds the ankle (if your Necchi uses snap-on feet) on the shaft. Loosen this screw until the pressure foot (or the pressure foot/ankle combination) comes off. Now slip the walking foot on where the other foot came off and tighten that screw. You're ready to go!

I have a Singer 5050 and I can't get the pressure foot to snap on.


Set the foot under the shaft and lower the presser foot lever. The foot should snap on. Sometimes they can be contrary and you have to keep trying.

On some sewing machines there is an adjustment on top of the machine for adjusting the pressure of the presser foot and this sometimes confuses the term.

Pfaff 1471 foot problem. Foot wont go down all the way, I have to press on it manually and hold with a finger for the foot to stay down for enough pressure to run over the fabric. feed dogs are up. Not...


Try lubricating the pressure foot shaft where it slides up and down (2 Places). To do this you need to remove the left side cover - the flat black screw in the slot under the left side of the carrying handle. Back the screw off slightly and pull off the left side plate. This should allow you to oil the shaft. I use Mobile 1 Synthetic 0W-20 oil. I find it works extremely well, as good or better than sewing machine oil. The problem is caused by the original grease they used when these machines were manufactured. The grease hardens over time (especially if the machine hasn't been used for awhile) and causes the shaft to stick. You might need to use a little penetrating oil initially, especially if the shaft is really stuck. This is a fine machine - good luck... LS.

Hello I have a singer model 4552 I cant make the pressure foot stay up...the lever doesnt raise the foot high enough what doi do?


I have a used unit with the same problem. If you remove the plastic housing piece on the far left you can see how the foot lifter works. Raising the lever raises a collar around the main shaft. There is a screw in that collar which connects the collar with the shaft. If that screw is loose the collar will not raise the shaft. Caution: Tighten the screw very carefully, only enough so that the shaft lifts. I just overtightened and the collar has a crack now.

Presser foot lever stuck


You lever doesn't work because the presser foot Bar is seized from lack of use.Open the side of the machine to access the bar. Put a mixture of water and ammonia ( about 80%water 20% ammonia) on the top and bottom of the bar. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes then try to move the presser foot Up by lifting the foot with a screw driver. Do not pry so hard you break something. It should get progressively easy the more times you do this. Put some sewing machine oil on the top and bottom of the shaft and it should be good to go.
