Http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/438_3116.pdf see p. 52. You change the position of the zipper foot, not the position of the needle, with this machine.

If you are not able to free this easily, you really should consider taking it to a service technician to look at it in case you do more damage to the needle bar and elsewhere trying to fix it yourself.

Most modern machines have snap off and snap on feet. Grasp the foot that is on there and push down. Then while lowering the foot, align the little bar on the zipper foot and watch it snap in. Easy.

Is it fitted correctly? Some of these feet need to be helped a little to get them to snap into place. (press down on the presser foot bar)

Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

How can I attach a zipper foot to my unidentified machine?


Assuming you have the correct zipper foot attachment for your machine, you should be able to attach it like any other presser foot. On some machines, you may need to adjust the needle position to the right or left so the needle will not hit the presser foot when stitching.

How do I change the needle position


Depends on the machine, and if the needle position can be changed. If it can't, you probably want something like this: <http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/j-200342003.php?gclid=CP7S5r-khL4CFc5ffgod9GUAlg> The green button thing on the back is a setscrew that lets you move the foot relative to the needle, rather than the needle relative to the foot.

Move needle to the right


It doesn't look like you can change needle position on this machine. Even the zipper foot for this machine is made so the foot itself moves to the right or left rather than having to change the needle position.

Here's a copy of your manual.

Would you please advise how I put a zipper foot on my brother bm-3600, the needle will not align with the foot when I put the foot down! Thank you.


Did a google image search, this looks like a newish machine so I'd assume clip on feet?

Put the foot on the pressure plate, lower the foot on and align so it clicks into place.

Couldn't get an image of the foot but many zipper feet are designed to mount either left or right side of the foot so you can sew both edges of the zip in the same direction, ie pressure foot to left of the needle for one side, and to the right of the needle for the other side of the zip, you want to stitch in the same direction to avoid creeping.

Some machines you change the change the needle position to the left or right in order to get up close to the zipper foot.

Probably a manual would assist explaining this better, if you don't have one for the machine, I'd suggest that you obtain one.

I tried to change the position of the zipper foot and ended up breaking the needle and now the bobbin thread keeps snapping when I try to sew. What should I do to fix this problem?


There could be a couple of general reasons for this to happen.
First, the tension in the bobbin holder could have tightened when you were trying to fix the needle. I don't explain them, I just know strange things happen when you try to fix one thing.
Secondly, I can't tell how old your machine it, but I know that the mechanism that holds the bobbin holder can become jammed and the thread wound around it. That too will cause the bobbin to not feed properly. You need to be sure the area around the bobbin holder is clear of all threads.
How did you try to change the position of the zipper foot? Did you just change the needle position and move the foot to the other side or did you do something else? I'd need to have more information to tell you anything more specific.

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.
