Pressure foot will not move fabric

Make sure the presser foot is down.
Have the feed dogs been dropped, as for darning?
Is the stitch length set to a higher number to make bigger stitches?
Does you machine have a pressure adjustment for the presser foot--check the owner's manual. The pressure adjustment increases or decreases the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the feed dogs--makes it easier to switch between stitching light weight vs heavy weight fabrics, ie chiffon and wool.

How do I fix my singer 6333? I plugged it in the light comes on the foot pedal is attached but no air coming the machine to the foot pedal therefore no sewing action how do I fix it?

There are some sewing machines that the foot pedal is driven by air pressure. Sometimes they will develop leaks so the air does not build up enough pressure to activate the machine. You might see about finding a replacement foot pedal--however if that is not the problem, you may waste your money. Perhaps a sewing repair shop can help you.

Where to set foot pressure

Most likely the foot pressure is set on teh very top of the left side of the machine. Check to see where the upper part of the bar come up when you raise the foot. Around that bar is usually a knurled nut . Press it down or slide it down. Now see if the pressure on the foot is better.
SOme machines actually have a wheel with numbers in the left end of the machine. You need to move it to a higher number on these models.
If this does not help, send in the make and model of the machine and I'll try to help.

Material won't move over the dog ears

If your feed dogs are functioning well, then perhaps the pressure on your presser foot is set too high (or you haven't lowered the presser foot, which is on the back or side back near the presser foot). The adjustment for pressure is often on the inside left door of most sewing machines. There are often numbers either on a dial, or little numbered slots and typically the smaller the number, the more the pressure/closer the foot is to the machine/feed dogs). If the machine is vintage, then there is a thumb screw on top of the machine above the needle bar, and you change the pressure that way. Hard to answer without knowing what machine you have, as on vintage Bernina's, the setting is inside the machine itself. Just make sure that your feed dogs are moving, and your stitch length is set to a longer length, as sometimes the stitch length is set too short, which may not be obvious to the layperson, on a vintage machine. That can be why your fabric isn't advancing, and sometimes the feed dogs wear out and need to be replaced, or there is thread or gunk that is constricting it's full motion.

I turned off my machine to change the pressure foot on my Bernina Virtuosa 160. The pressure foot number does not change on the display. Is there something I need to do to change the number?

The machine Knows the foot number buy the small glass part of the foot just on the upper right side of the foot. Check to see if that is not damaged and clean. Also check the sensor on the machine just above the foot for not damage and clean. If that is good make sure your foot is paralel with the stitch plate. Do this buy putting a single hole foot on your machine and make sure the needle is right in the center. If this does not work you will need to take it in. May be a bad sensor or unpulged but that is rare.
Also not all bernina feed have this foot sensor, if this is the case it will not read it
hope this helps

I have a Simplicity Denim Expert sewing machine it's about 5 or six years old but an excellent machine I need to know how to put the foot that holds down the material back on the long iron piece that...

Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.

Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.

You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.

You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at

Hope this helps!

I need a replacement pressure foot release lever for a Simplicity BH600 blind hemmer.

Supposedly, Simplicity is made for Tacony. I would start there to ask about parts.

Is this a presser foot lifter?

I do not recall ever seeing a pressure foot lifter.

Janome 5124 keeps running after I depress foot

Greetings, I experienced the same problem. Mine only ran a few stitches. Foot pressure on the foot feed was always "tension" problem in my foot.

I turned the foot feed around and upside down.
I press on the foot feed at the open end not the pivot (cord) end. This has given me much better control. Janome had no options for foot feed adjustment or replacement, but this has helped greatly. You may have to practice to get used to it
