Model 6230- presser foot lifter won't move presser foot

I just got this model 6230 PFAFF sewing machine from my elderly mother. It has not been used in 5 -8 yrs. The "presser foot lifter" won't move the presser foot down. When alot of pressure is used on the presser foot it will go down and then the "presser foot lever " will lift it up again, but not down. It feels as if it is extremely "gunked up" some how.

Thanks for any ideas on what to do.

Error message on Pfaff 7570 is "bring presser foot lifter to sewing position?" Is this a fatal error or is this a procedure that has to be done before the machine will operate?


Assuming that the presser foot lifter is working, this shouldn't be a fatal error. The presser foot has to be down to sew. The lifter needs to be in the down position to put the foot down.

The manual for the Pfaff Creative 7570 is available on the product page: http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Machines/creative-7570 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Creative_7570-manual-EN.pdf?ext=.pdf . See page 32 (page 36 of the PDF) of the manual to see a picture of the presser foot lifter.

I hope this helps.

I had this problem, but ignored it, go through the advised listing on the machine's screen, under 'pressure foot lifter' and see if anything can be adjusted.

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.

Can't get my presser foot to fall down when I let go of the lifter on my Pfaff 6085 sewing machine


Sounds as if the spring for the presser bar is broken OR the presser bar is dirty and needs cleaned and oiled.
