Walking foot keeps breaking needles

I have been using my walking foot a lot. All of a sudden it started coming unattached by the screw on the right side and breaking needles. like the momentum of sewing is loosening it, even though the screw is still tight.

SOURCE: changing needle/thread

Yes, you have to remove the walking foot, the threading mechanism does not have electronic recognition of different feet so when you add a foot that has a different fitting you will have to remove it to self thread.

SOURCE: Attaching walking foot

you probably purchased the incorrect walking foot for your specific machine. check and make sure if you have a high shank or a low shank....the way to determine if you have a low-shank is to measure the screw from the plate and look at the distance if it is 5/8 then you have a low, any higher about 1in. then you have a high shank, so you would purchase a foot depending on your shank.

SOURCE: How do I fix thumping/clunking sound?

make sure your needle is facing the right way, some needles if you look at the front and back you will see a groove side and a flat side sometimes it is hard to tell the difference depending on needle style.. hold it up to light and look at it from the side the difference will be slight but you will see a difference groove should face the back or if your presser foot is out of wack (lol so technical terminology) it could cause needle breaks and noise you can detect damage to the presser foot if this is happening.... only other thing i can suggest is to make sure bobbin is securely snapped into the housing if not it can cause problems with the needle picking up the bobbin

What is a walking foot and what does it look like,please


There is a "fork" or straight bar on the needle-screw side of the foot that wraps around or sets on top of the needle screw. This fork/bar moves with the needle and causes the foot to pull fabric through the top, much like the feed dogs underneath.

Be sure you get a walking foot that will work on your machine!

When installing the foot, it helps to raise the presser foot bar as far up as it will go and that the foot is tilted slightly to slip in on. If you have a knee-lift bar, using it to lift the presser bar will sometimes give you just what you need to get it on. Do NOT bend the walking foot to put it on.

Cant get the bernina walking foot in position on the 1031 machine


The walking foot has a spring loaded lever that rides on the needle clamp screw. If you lower the needle into the hole on the walking foot it will remove the pressure and make it easier to attach the walking foot to the ankle.

Why doesn't walking mechanism work?


if the pressor foot anvil doesn't move up and down /back/forth , the machine might be in "DARNING " mode this is usually a small button in the bobbin area , but some machines have them on the back of cabinet as well

Old Bernina 830 walking foot not pulling item through.Lever not letting foot down completely but can push it down the rest of the way with my fingers


Hi Linda:

Does your 830 have a black needle clamp and screw instead of the standard nickel plated clamp? If not, the walking foot forked driving lever may be damaged by having used the machine with zigzag engaged. Another problem with older 830 machines is that the needle clamp has been repeatedly tightened very tight, causing the needle bar base to become damaged so that the clamp is no longer perpendicular to the direction of sewing...In other words, the clamp sets crooked on the needle bar.
The black clamp made for the walking foot had a specific diameter for the forked driving lever of the walking foot. The black clamp was also longer so that when using a wide stitch width, the driving fork of the walking foot did not collide with the needle bar clamp screw on the right side.
Please reply with your observations.

Can the timing being off on my Juki LU562 cause the needle to keep breaking?


of course but how thick are the goods u r sewing and hopefully u r using the right size needle. u need a no. 22 for heavy goods. yes your hook timing could be off and if u continue to break needles you will damabe the hook, fine emery paper will take any burrs off the hook. slide plate that covers the hook and turn wheel slowly and watch the needle and hook interplay. unthread needle for this. the hook should be about 1/16 from needle before the needle starts to rise.. good luck on setting the timing i can't even do that. since its a walking foot mach. i doubt the timing is off!!

How do I keep the walking foot from unscrewing the needle holder on my bernina record 730


Tighten your needle with a screwdriver, instead of finger tight. If that continues to happen, take your walking foot back. That is not normal, and could end up injuring you or damaging your machine. Good luck!

I have just started learning how to quilt and I was told I needed a walking foot to quilt the sandwich together. I purchased one today, but I don't even know how to attach the foot. I also need to...


The foot is attached as normal, but when you're attaching it, the fork-shaped part that sticks out of the right-hand-side has to be hooked around the round pillar sticking out horizontally from the right-hand-side of the needle bar and that holds the needle securing screw. When the foot is down, you will see that the upwards motion of the needle bar raises the upper set of feed dogs on the walking foot - the whole purpose of the walking foot is to provide, effectively, a set of feed dogs on the top of the material as well as the toothed ones below the stitch plate - this allows multilayered or thick materials to be sewn as when doing quilting.

Not really a problem. Just trying to attach the walking foot. I removed the shank and screwed the walking foot on. However, there is a white, plastic, two-pronged gadget on the right side of the foot that...


That would be the drive arm of the walking foot. It goes around the needle bar clamp and when the needle goes up and down it makes the foot work. Take off the presser foot screw, attach the arm around the needle clamp, and reset the screw. Many feet are made from plastic so be careful not to break when tightening. It needs to be fairly secure though, lots of movement when it sews. Use at 1/2 speed or less.

New singer 8280 needle hits overcasting foot and breaks


so, it sews for a while?  It sounds to me like the screw that holds the needle in place is loose.  As the needle moves up and down the screw loosens until that one fateful stitch, it comes out completely.  Try to tighten with a screw driver.
the other possibility is that it breaks if you are sewing over a bulky seam, like a flat fell.  as the presser foot "toes up" to go over the lump, the needle hits and there you are.
holler if that doesn't help.

How do I attach a walking foot


Okay let's get started.
  • First let's look at the walking foot.
  • Turn the bulky body so that it's away from you.
  • On the left you see a groove that is going to be where you attach the foot to your machine.
  • On the right is a u-shaped arm which you can move up and down. It will go over the needle clamp
Now, let's remove your present foot from the machine and look at it.
  • Loosen the foot screw until it almost comes off. (if it does come off, screw it back on a bit.) The screw is on the left of the foot-bar.
  • On the right you'll see the needle bar with a needle clamp (what you tighten when you replace a needle) on the right of the needle-bar.
Okay the walking foot business.
  • slide the walking foot into position so that the foot screw is in the slot on the right and the u-shaped arm is over the needle clamp, with the needle clamp in the middle of the u-shaped opening.
  • Tighten the foot screw securely, it's going to be under more strain than normal.
  • While you're at it, check that the needle-clamp is nice and tight as well.
Okay, then! There you go... Happy sewing.
