Automatic Presser Foot Lifter on the Janome MC9400

One of the very helpful features on the Janome MC9400 is the automatic presser foot lift function. While you might be used to raising and lowering your presser foot manually, the Janome MC9400 has an automatic presser foot lifter that you can use to do this hands-free. You can adjust the settings in the Janome MC9400 so that every time you stop stitching, the needle goes down into the fabric and the presser foot automatically lifts up. The presser foot will automatically go down again when you start to stitch. It’s like magic!

Pressor Foot Height.jpgI love the automatic presser foot on the Janome MC9400, but I was wanting to  lift the presser foot higher.  I can do this manually with the presser foot lever at the back, but it took me a while to figure out how to do this with the automatic presser foot lift button on the front of the machine.

You can set the height of the presser foot to its highest point in the Settings area, but I wanted to be able to have the presser foot set at a regular height and then just be able to push a button to have it raise to the highest height – yes, I’m fussy like that!

I finally figured out how to do this and wanted to share it with you.

Check out the video on my YouTube channel to find out how to raise the presser foot to its highest height on the Janome MC9400 without having to change the height in the Settings area. It’s really so very simple.
