Lower Presser Foot message when presser foot is down

My PE770 embroidery machine keeps saying lower presser foot when the presser foot is already lowered. It is not recognizing when it is in the down position. I tried restarting the machine but that did not fix it. What could be wrong and how can I fix it?

SOURCE: "Lower presser foot" error on SE 270D

This happened to me and I eventually realized that there is a small door flap at the top near the "4" in the threading series that can get stuck open. Normally this flap goes up and down with the presser foot, but if it gets stuck open even when the presser foot is down, tapping it or closing it manually will make the error go away.1_9_2012_12_19_55_am.jpg

Try turning it off and disconnect the foot pedal (depends on the model).

Worst, the power surge damaged the sewing machines small computer and it will require service.

In the middle of embroidery how to change Presser foot height on the epic husqvanna


Touch the presser foot up button once to raise the presser foot. Touch again and the presser foot will raise to extra lift position, and the feed teeth will be automatically
lowered to make it easier to get heavy fabric under the presser foot.In embroidery mode, the extra lift makes it easier to insert or remove the hoop.

My singer sesq embroidery machine keeps saying it's locked up it embroiders a few stitches. . I have gone through the start up process several times, changed the needle and bobbin and no luck


I'm assuming that you have a Futura embroidery machine. It sounds to me as if your thread is either not between your upper tension disks, or it's on the rim. This is caused by threading while the presser foot is down.

ALL sewing machines MUST be threaded with the presser foot UP. This is because that is the only time that the tension disks are spread to accept the thread. The machine has a "thread out" sensor, and it's triggered when the thread is not between those disks, making it beep and stopping the machine.

Consult your user's manual, and in the maintenance section in the back it will show you how to remove the cover over the needle shaft for maintenance. To identify the tension disks, just raise and lower the presser foot a few times--it is the only thing that will move, whether the machine is on or off.

Can I do freehand embroidery using this machine?


Most any sewing machine (zig-zag capable is probably better but a straight stitch can be used) should be able to do manual embroidery/applique. The lady in the video states she's using an embroidery foot, but in reality a darning or free motion presser foot may be better. Most embroidery presser feet actually press down on the fabric making it difficult to move the fabric manually. A darning or free motion presser foot is actually shorter and allows space for the fabric to move freely.

Don't forget to lower the feed dogs!!!

Lots of web sites and videos on the internet!

Bobbin thread will not catch unless the foot is down?


Ashleigh--Your machine will work satisfactorily ONLY if the presser foot is down. When the presser foot is up, the tension disk is released, therefore, no tension = a big knot of thread.

To free motion quilt, you should drop the feed dogs. Install a darning foot (this foot is shorter in length so when it is lowered, there is a space between the presser foot and needle plate). The space allows the fabric to be moved easily while stitching.

Some sewists will free motion quilt without a presser foot (if they don't have a darning foot), but that is very dangerous as one can easily sew through a finger. However, even when sewing without a presser foot, the presser foot mechanism needs to be lowered in order to properly form stitches.

When trying to embroider I keep getting a Lower the Presser foot message when it is already lowered!!


You don't state the brand/model of your machine. If it is computerized model, the machine is not recognizing the presser foot's position. If there is a glass eye on the foot, make sure it is clean of any dust, lint, or fingerprints.

How to bring sewing foot holder to embroidery position


Hi, I hope this helps. If it doesn't post again.
"Check:
Place the sewing foot under the sewing foot
holder so that the pins of the foot snap into
the sewing foot holder when the presser foot
lifter is lowered.
Please check that the sewing foot is properly
engaged by raising the presser foot lifter
."

Question: Are you using top feed? If so:
"For all sewing jobs with the top feed, only use sewing feet with Cutout at the back (OA, 1A, 3, 4)."

Embroidery foot Part No.: 98-694-840-00 will not work with top feed.

Also, except for eyelets, the darning foot can be used for embroidery.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do :) darn or embroider :); I'm not sure what mode you're working in either; embroidery mode?

Darning with straight stitch
Program 00
Fit darning foot No. 6.
Set the needle at its highest position by turning
the handwheel, and push the pin of the darning
foot fully into the hole of the sewing foot holder
slightly pressing the darning foot between thumb
and forefinger. When doing this, the guide fork
should place itself around the presser bar and the
wire must be behind the fixing screw.
Darning position:
Lower the presser foot lifter pressing it lightly to
the rear until it snaps into the darning position.
Important Only in this position you have the
optimum thread tension for darning.

• Place the darning work in the darning hoop.
• Lower the feed dog.
• Pull up the bobbin thread and hold the threads
when you start sewing.
• Now guide the fabric back and forth evenly;
the length of the darn will be set by the size of
the hole. As you are determining the stitch
length yourself while sewing with the feed dog
lowered, you should sew at an even speed.
When you have reached the width of the dam
aged area, darn over the damaged area again
from right to left.
This guarantees a durable darn.
TIP: The faster you sew, the easier and more even
the darning will be. It you are moving the workpiece
too slowly, small knots will appear on the
wrong side of the fabric."

Whether working with terry-cloth or woven fabric,
with the help of the darning foot and the pro
gram 02 you can embroider initials of your own
design

Drop the feed dog and insert the darning foot.
Put the machine into the darning position.

Spread the fabric in an embroidery hoop and
embroider in accordance with program 02.

Lower feed dog
If the feed dog is not lowered for embroidering, the
machine does not embroider when the foot pedal
is pressed and the message appea rs:
Lower feed dog

ok?
The feed dog must be lowered in embroidery
mode.

My Singer XL 6000 upper thread is too tight and keeps breaking, when the presser foot is up the upper thread is loose, but when the presser foot is lowered the threah gets too tight, what I notice is that...


You need to loosen the tension on the machine. There is a dial that has numbers on it. The higher the dial is set, the tighter the tension is. Turn the dial to the left one number. Then try it. Do it over and over. Do not turn the dial all the way down or you will mess up your machine. Do it slowly, one number at a time and try the machine between dials.

Cant get machine to embroider


there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.

How to stich embroidery


That would depend on if you have a regular home sewing machine or a embroidery machine. I'm going to assume that you have a regular machine.

There is something called free hand embroidery. you lower or disengage the feed dogs, take off the presser foot. Some use a darning foot and others just leave the foot off. Hopefully your design is already marked on the fabric. Place fabric in a regular hand embroidery so they fabric is right side up but the hoop makes it sit down in the rings. (make sense) Fit your hoop on the bed of the sewing machine, under the presser foot/presser foot bar. Lower the presser foot lever. (important for tension) and select stitch style and length. you may need to adjust tensions too.

Begin stitching, take a couple stitches... then reverse a couple... then snip the loose ends. Continue to stitch, guiding the hoop so that the needle follows the design. Start slowly and as you discover how your hand movements effect the length of the stitches... you can speed up and slow down as you need to create your design.

Presser foot wont raise and lower


Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.
