Beckster, it may simply be that the walking foot needs to be tweeked a bit, perhaps screwed in further, or less.
If that doesn't help ...

SOURCE: thread jamming, wont feed material, sewing in one place

Try moving the stitch length dial to 4 or 5 - check the manual. You may have it in the position for very close together sewing. I had to do a lot of trying with my 4795 to get it to work right. I found that very thin thread, polyester kind, broke at the needle after a couple of stitches. I switched to coats & clarks thread and a Singer ball point needle and it works fine. Be sure your needle is inserted with the flat top toward the back of the machine. Good luck!

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.

Check to see that the lever on the walking foot is on top of the needle bar on the machine. When the needle is going up and down, it moves the lever on the walking foot which make the little pastic feet move.

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.

Elna walking foot


If your SU is an Air Electronic model i.e. 80's model, Elna didn't make a walking foot to fit. However, if you've got a walking foot that is the same height from sole plate to the screw fitting as a standard Elna foot then you could give it a try. The walking foot connects to the presser bar with a screw but the needle bar also needs to hook into a secondary lever on the side of the walking foot to make the foot actually move. Probably sounds very confusing . Check the movement of the foot manually by hand turning the fly wheel to see how it works before you actually use with the motor to minimise any problems if the foot doesn't fit.

Also you'll probably only be able to do straight stitch with this foot due to the clearance around the needle plate.

On my singer 9005 the pressure foot lifter does not stay in the up position - does not hold the pressure foot up.


These plastic presser bar lifters do wear out a lot ,very common,,,,,,,,You can lift it up and file as close to the machine side on top just a couple of stroke son the file will usually give it a surface to hang on and it will stay up ,much easier than changing the plastic lever

Contact Allyn International INC. which are the distributors in the US. Model 4795 and 4595 are the same but one is the instructional type I think, that's what the person I talked to told me. I got a free video and booklet from them. Fortunately my machine came with the manual, but it was not enough for the hemmer foot and I also needed some help with the overcasting stitches. This booklet explain all the stitches, the foot you need to use and the proper width and length of the stitch.
