Remove the screw holding the regular presser foot and the presser foot holder and set aside.

Place the take-up lever in the highest position.

Hold the even feed foot with your right hand with your thumb holding the lever of the foot in its highest position. Place the even feed foot on the presser bar and make sure that the lever of the foot rests upon the needle bar thumbscrew. While holding it in place, fasten the foot to the presser bar with the screw.

As the needle bar goes up and down, the lever on the even feed foot should rest on the needle bar needle serew and go up and down as well.

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.

I was given a brother cs-8150. The manual says it will operate without foot feed. I tried to use auto sew and machine tells me to change speed controller mode to off. Where do I do that.


Not able to find any online instructions for your machine, so here goes. There may be some confusion as to what foot feed means.

I believe foot feed refers to the feed dogs. When you disable the feed dogs (drop them), then you must manipulate the fabric manually--used mostly for darning or free motion quilting. In essence the feed dogs are no longer moving the fabric for you. Instead, you manually move the fabric and control the speed at which it stitches with your foot control. Perhaps that is why you need to turn off the speed control because you will determine the speed with your foot.

Foot control refers to the foot pedal that you use to control the speed that the machine sews (much like the gas pedal in your car). Some machines have the ability to sew without the use of a foot control unit. To do so, there is usually a button or lever somewhere to start and stop the machine. When activated, the machine will continue to stitch until you stop it.

Hopefully this will help you find a resolution.

Brother NX-400. Never used. Error F04. I've looked for a model # for the foot for NX-400 to no avail. The foot that came in the box is Model T/FC-322. I can't help but think this is the wrong foot.


If you mean the foot controller, then the T/FC-322 is a substitute that should work. It's listed as a replacement here: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/234522001.php . The manual for the NX400 gives the foot controller as XC1154-051 . Brother changes the part number often but the wiring remains the same. Another substitute controller is available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/foot-control-w-cord-brother-xc6651121.aspx .

The F04 message may mean there is an internal failure. This probably needs to be fixed by a Brother authorized repair person.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Brother CS6000i with setting 00 for straight line stitch is making a left curve stitches instead going straight.


***Your feed dog under the pressure foot seems to be pulling on one side a little harder which indicates wear. It is likely to solve the problem by replacing the feed dog.
***Before you do this try to lower the pressure on the pressure foot. If the material you are sewing is thick it will have an effect on the pull of the feed dogs. The material you are sewing that you sent appears to be jeans material. It looks like it is thick and somewhat slippery.

My straight stitch is not perfectly straight, what can I do?


1. Put a piece of paper on the sewing machine w/o thread. Sew for three inches.
2. Notice the needle holes are straight with the feed dogs. The pressure foot is not in line with the holes.
3. With the pressure foot down loosen the pressure foot pressure to it's lowest amount.
4. There is a screw on the arm that needs to be loosened. Afterwards, adjust the arm until the foot is parallel with the feed dogs. Tighten screw.
5. Try sewing again on the piece of paper to check for accuracy on being straight.
6. One other check is to insure the feed dogs have even wear.

Nx400 error message F04?


I had the problem with the error code F04 and found out that it is your foot pedal for the machine. Unplug it and it should start right up as ours did.You will need to fix or buy a new foot pedal. When they repair and or clean your machine they don't use your foot pedal but they use their own so they will miss the broken foot pedal.

I hope this helps you.

What is err code F04


It most likely is your foot pedal. Unplug your foot pedal and start the machine without it. If it works properly without the foot pedal plugged in then your foot pedal needs repaired or replaced. This worked for us with the NX400 machine and I am sure the NX450 is closely similar. Don't bother to buy a Manual if you didn't already get one with the machine. A Service manual and parts manual is best; But just so you know they don't show the error codes unless you are a qualified and authorized repair person for the machines. I got my info from the repair man where my wife buys and repairs her machines. I am an electronic technician and mechanic so I understand how this system works. I will be repairing my wife's machines from now on.

Brother ps 33 material will not feed through machine


Are the feed dogs up and working?

Is the presser foot down?

There should be an adjustment somewhere on the top of the sewing machine, above the presser foot where you can adjust the pressure of the presser foot - left for less and right for more.

Is the fabric under the presser foot when you begin sewing?
