Brother PE-150 Presser Foot - should it move?

wagginaccessoriesMay 30, 2006

I recently obtained a used(only once) Brother PE-150 embroidery machine. I have been reading old posts and have found a few things to help me trouble shoot, but my main question is the actual foot suppose to move up and down? The lever moves up and down, and the machine detects when I haven't lowered it, but the actual circle foot never moves. Is it suppose to be all the way down resting on the fabric like a normal sewing machine? Or does it stay where it is?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me!

I have the brother 270D and the foot you use for embroidery (with the circle) doesn't actually rest on the fabric when lowered....
I'm not sure about the PE 150!

I have the PE150 and the foot doesn't rest tightly on the fabric surface as it would if it were a sewing machine. Colleen

Also check the way you have everything hooped. The presser foot lifter should not be bouncing up and down. The hooping method was a big adjustment for me because I started out as a hand embroider and machine embroidery hooping is the opposite of hand embroidery and really get myself turned around the first few times.

There should be a book and video to view that will answer many questions you will have. I would read the book and view the video several times, then practice the instruction book page by page.
