Question about White Sewing 1730 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Open Question

Walking foot instruction!

I have recently purchased a walking foot for my machine and it did not come with any instruction. I can get it on, but as soon as I begin to sew the needle gets stuck. Is there anywhere I can get instruction on how to install and use a walking foot.

    I'm a relatively new quilter. I cannot figure out how to put the walking foot on my White sewing machine.

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.

Beckster, it may simply be that the walking foot needs to be tweeked a bit, perhaps screwed in further, or less.

Is this a Janome MemoryCraft 9000? (I ask because the models seem to get mixed up in the threads)

If so, you can more than likely find accessories for the MC9000 either on eBay, your local Janome dealer (you can find the closest one to you @ Janome's website using the "Dealer Locator" feature) or even ... SEARS!

Sears contracted Janome to make several of their sewing machines (I think Janome might still be the actual manufacturer, but aren't 100% sure) and so the parts are compatible. You can even use a Kenmore Memory Card with a Janome MC9000.

As for oiling, if it's the MC9000 (much like practically all newer models) they don't need oiling. Though sometimes, you can dab a teeny-tiny amount of oil on the bobbin case if it needs it.

Walking feet attach much the same way on most machines. They can be boogers the first couple of times. It helps to tilt the foot and guide it toward the needlebar from the side in order to get the fork (if your foot has a fork--some just have a bar that sets on top of the needleclamp screw) around the needleclamp screw. In cases of extreme frustration, I've removed the needleclamp screw and then reattached it once the foot is in place.

Just use patience. If frustrated, walk away. Whatever, do not force or bend the foot in order to install.

Pfaff varimatic 6091 What type of walking foot can i purchase for this model and are they very expensive ?


You could probably get away with a generic walking foot. They are available in the fabric store for a little under $20. Once you use one, you will wonder how you got by without it before!! I've attached a sample of a product that would work for you. Just be sure to NOT get the "slant" walking foot. That is for the Singer machine, and they have a different setup. Enjoy!!

No motor sound with walking foot on Bernina 1031?


Keep in mind that that is not a walking foot... it's actually an even feed foot.

Approach your issue logically. Take the EF foot off and put your normal foot one. Does the sound return to normal?

If it does... keep in mind that your machine is exerting more effort to make the EF foot work. That can make a motor sound differently.

I purchased an Elna 7000 on E-Bay.Wonderful machine. I also purchased a 492000-20 walking foot for it. I can not find instructions on how to attach the walking foot to the machine.


I'm assuming that this is a generic style walking foot for low shank machines and it will fit your Elna?
To attach it, you will see a long lever arm at the front of the foot and the little curved bracket at the back of the foot.

Remove your usual foot and the clip on foot holder by undoing the thumb screw. Now fit the walking foot on instead by putting the lever arm around the needle bar and the curved bracket around the pressure bar and then putting the thumb screw back into place and screw up tight to hold the foot in place. Now lower the pressure foot and manually wind your machine forward a few stitches. As the needle bar goes up and down, it should move the long lever arm too which works the walking foot teeth gripping the top layer of fabric with each stitch.

Trust this helps.

Using a walking foot on my Necchi 3537


Hi JoEllen,
The walking foot replaces the normal pressure foot on your machine. There is a screw on the left-hand side of the pressure shaft that holds the ankle (if your Necchi uses snap-on feet) on the shaft. Loosen this screw until the pressure foot (or the pressure foot/ankle combination) comes off. Now slip the walking foot on where the other foot came off and tighten that screw. You're ready to go!

Stitches


Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.
