Did you buy a universal foot switch or one specifically for a dremel? Many times the universal ones should plug into the wall and whatever device you connect to a plug housed on the pedal to operate by pedal. If it is Dremel specific, check the support portion of their website or try sending and email to them using the Contact Us link on their page.

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.

How do i put pressure on the foot


On the older machines they have a screw on the top of the machine that is attached to the pressure foot. Screw down for more pressure and visa versa. The newer brands have an ability to adjust itself.

How to attach free motion foot


Most free motion feet attach like the other feet.

It is creating "thread nesting" also called birdnesting. Could be several things:
1) make sure before you thread the upper thread, RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat properly in the tension disks
2) drop your feed dogs before you begin to free motion
3) your free motion quilt foot, when lowered, should not rest on the fabric. (Be sure you are lowering your presser foot when you want to stitch!) You should be able to move the quilt sandwich easily under the presser foot. If the foot applies any pressure to the fabric, you may need to release the presser foot pressure (consult your manual). Or you are using the incorrect presser foot for your machine.
4) If none of the above, you need to tighten the upper tension AND
try this method before beginning to free motion stitch:

I need help with the outside walking foot on a singer211 it has to much pressure on it I need to know how to adjust.


I am NOT familiar with your Singer model 211, BUT.... Most machines [most brands too] have a knurlled screw knob on top which is attached to the long vertical shaft upon which the foot is mounted at the bottom.

"Normally," turning this screw clockwise tends to increase the foot pressure, while counterclockwise rotation tends to loosen the spring pressure on the foot!

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.

I have a Simplicity Denim Expert sewing machine it's about 5 or six years old but an excellent machine I need to know how to put the foot that holds down the material back on the long iron piece that...


Hi. I believe your machine has a snap-on pressure foot. I've posted pictures of snap-on pressure feet at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com; just look for the 'pressure foot' tag or search the site for pressure feet and you shouldn't have any problem finding that post.

Anyway, there is an adapter (called an 'ankle') at the end of the 'long iron piece that lowers and raises the foot' (excellent description, BTW). The ankle attaches to that piece with a small thumb screw. With the ankle in place, you just lower the ankle onto the catch on the pressure foot.

You can also use regular low-shank feet on your machine. First, remove the ankle. The regular low-shank feet will attach to the raiser bar with that same thumb screw that holds the ankle in place.

You really should get a replacement manual for your machine. I found manuals for Simplicity sewing machines at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/simplicity-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

Hope this helps!

How do I change the foot on my Viking model 120...can't find my manual and have used the same foot for years.


Hi. I found some illustrations of your model machine on the Husqvarnai Viking web site. (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com) From the pictures, it looks like your machine has what they call snap-on pressure feet.
Pressure feet either attach via a small thumbscrew on the left side of the pressure bar or there is a little device on the back of the pressure bar (usually itself held in place by a thumbscrew) that uses a 'claw' to hold the pressure foot on. This is what it looks like your machine has. To release the 'claw' that is holding the foot, there should be a small lever or button on the back side of the pressure bar. Press that, and the 'claw' will release the foot. To 'snap-on' the foot again, place the foot under the pressure bar and lower it.
I've posted some photos at www.robbiesews.blogspot.com that may help. They're of my Kenmore, but the idea's the same.
Let me know if this helps, ok?
Happy Sewing!!

Info screen keeps beeping to change pressure foot, and I have the correct pressure foot attached to the machine.


If this machine is a Rose, the screen flashes the foot because it thinks the foot is in the up position, not because your using the wrong foot type. There is a spring that can break and a switch that can sometimes go bad that gives that error message. A trip to your service tech is required. That part has a 20 or 25 year guarantee if you are the original purchaser. Labor was covered for one year from date of purchase.
