Question about Husqvarna Lily 540 and 550

1 Answer

The presser bar lifter on my Lily 540 broke and now the presser foot stays down permanently. The plastic portion of the lifter (the lever) that is located on the outside of the machine is intact. It is the metal bar that actually lifts the presser foot that is broken. I can't find anywhere that carries this part for the Lily model and the only sewing store in our town took my money 8 months ago and still hasn't produced a part. Is there anywhere to get this part? Thanks!

Pressure foot won't stay up


The presser foot lift lever on many newer janome sewing machines will wear out with use. It can easily be replaced by a sewing machine repair shop or Janome dealer. Or you can look online for a "presser foot lifter" or "presser foot lift lever" making sure to find the correct one for your machine.

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.

How do I change a pfaff 1222 presser bar lifter? I ordered a replacement part, but now I don't know how to remove it.


If you are lucky, your part will come with instructions. Each machine is a bit different but basically you have to get into the needle bar/presser foot bar area. If you are Lucky you can get to the lever assembly without having to take out a bunch of bars. But I've only ever seen that once on an industrial machine. So you take out the presser foot bar... to get to the lever. Use caution. You want to be sure you know where and how the parts fit in there. Take your time... take pics or make notes.

Good luck

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 am sewing a knit fabric on my Lily 540 and it is skipping stitches like crazy. I have tried adjusting the tension and the stitch length with no success. seem to always have a hard time with getting even...


It sounds like you may be using the wrong needle. For knit fabric you need a ball point needle in order for it to sew correctly. A regular sharp type needle can cause the stitches to skip. Also make sure you have the right size for the type of fabric. Lighter weight fabric needs smaller size needle and thicker types need bigger sized needles.

Also make sure you have the right presser foot and the right pressure on the presser foot to get nice even stitches. A roller foot helps when sewing knit fabrics.

The H foot is the Teflon coated foot and it is used when sewing foam, plastic, plastic coated fabrics, leather and imitation leather.
Yes, you can get a darning foot for the Lily. My foot catalogue shows part number 412 54 17-45 and it is called the Darning/Quilting foot. It has a clear oval shaped "foot" and a spring lever which is placed above the needle screw. When I owned a Rose (sister to Lily!) I actually purchased a Brother foot that was exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) the same as this foot for half the price of the Husqvarna one. So if you have a Brother dealer handy, try there.

Presser foot lifter is stuck can i fix it


If you can't lift the presser foot up at all undo the presser bar screw on top of the presser bar, if you have a dial turn it to 0, you should now be able to move the lever, if it is still tight put some WD40 on the presser bar and leave it for a couple of hours.

Faulty presser foot lifter on a singer 2110/2112.


I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.
Good luck!

On my singer 9005 the pressure foot lifter does not stay in the up position - does not hold the pressure foot up.


These plastic presser bar lifters do wear out a lot ,very common,,,,,,,,You can lift it up and file as close to the machine side on top just a couple of stroke son the file will usually give it a surface to hang on and it will stay up ,much easier than changing the plastic lever
