Lowering the Presser Foot

Lowering the presser foot doesn't seem like something you could really do incorrectly, but it you're letting the presser foot slam down or putting it down rather hard, it can cause some problems you may not expect. Lowering the presser foot hard or letting it slam down can damage sensors, change the height of the presser bar, and loosen or break screws that hold things in place. This doesn't mean you have to lower the presser foot super gently, but if you guide the presser foot lever all the way down before letting go, you will significantly decrease the chances of experiencing these issues in the future.
