Presser foot does not snap down - it rather floats

The presser bar used to snap down promptly when engaged - now it rather floats down very slowly as though on some kind of hydraulic resistance and it does not seem to grip fully once down.

This is an issue I have as well after the level was initially stuck. I had to disengage the secondary presser foot which wasn't easy. So now mine floats, too, and I couldn't get the foot to snap on to the mecanism without hand assistance. The presser foot won't lock down and hold the fabric securely enough to hold the fabric for sewing.

Hi, the presser foot bar needs cleaning and oiling. Open the cover over it if you can or just go at it from the bottom. It may be best to clean it with something with kerosene such as liquid Wrench from your local hardware store or a gun barrel cleaning solvent. Then a clear sewing machine oil and exercize it good until it starts snapping down again.

Your feet are snap on feet. If you look carefully at them there is a little metal bar across the top. Your foot "carrier" has a little hook-like thing that snaps over that bar. to remove the foot that's on there now, lift your presser foot, grasp the toe of the foot and pull up. This should unsnap it from the carrier. Once it's removed, sit your new foot on the feed dogs below the hook-like thing and lower the presser foot bar... the foot should just snap into place easily. Some of the older ones you had to press down on the thumb screw a little to get it to snap.

How do I attach the darning foot on a Pfaff Expressions 2.0 please?


on the machine, there is a foot holder attached to the machine, & the feet to the machine will either be snapped on to the foot holder or there is a screw to undo. most of the new machine are snap on feet, take the presser bar lever up, there is a little lever on the back of the foot holder, & you push it toward the foot holder bar & it will release the foot & you put the other foot down on the needle plate & bring the foot holder bar down on the foot until it snaps on to the foot

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

I think you have to position the new presser foot under the shank then drop the presser foot lever down as if you were beginning to sew. This should snap the new presser foot right on. Be sure the little bar is positioned under the hook.

HOW DO I ATTACH PRESSER FOOT G TO MY MACHINE??


there are 2 type of presser bar foot clamps
one allows you to snap on the foot--raise & then lower the presser foot holder until the cut out is directly above the pin on the foot,,as you lower the presser foot holder the presser foot will automatically engage when put down on the pin area

the second is a shank & foot combined & there is a screw on the presser bar,,unscrew it some & put the shank up around the screw & retighten the screw

The plate is not screwed in, it is held tight by a couple of metal springs on each side. Just take a small regular screw driver and gently pry up the face plate. You may have the presser foot lowered by the switch on the right side of the bobbin/shuttle area slide it so the presser feet raise.

Turn power switch to "0"
raise the needle to highest position by turning the wheel toward you(counterclockwise) and raise the presser foot lever
release the foot by raising the lever located at the back of the presser foot assembly
place a different presser foot on the needle plate so that the bar on the presser foot is in line with the slot on the shank
