Foot rest? Are you referring to the foot control unit or a presser foot? If it is presser foot, most likely you do not have the correct presser foot for your machine. Search the internet for the "make model presser foot" (substitute make & model with your machine make & model). There are basically 3 presser foot styles--low, high & slant. They are not interchangeable.

If you are talking about the foot control, sometimes you can find other foot control units for your machine, possibly even generic units.

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:

The thread bunches under fabric when sewing on leather


WHEN YOU FIRST THREAD LEAVE THE FOOT UP AND PAY ATTENTION IF YOU ARE GETTING A SNAG WHILE YOU ARE THREADING. IF YOU ARE THEN FIND OUT WHERE THE SNAG IS AND CORRECT IT. NOW, LOWER THE UPPER FOOT PRESSURE. THIS MUST BE LOWER BECAUSE THE FABRIC IS SO MUCH MORE THICK. IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM TAKE NOTICE IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM OR ON TOP. MORE ON TOP THEN LOWER TENSION. IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM THEN TIGHTEN THE TOP. START YOUR TENSION ON TOP WITH THREE. THE BOTTOM NEEDS TO BE CHECKED FOR PROPER TENSION. THE BOBBIN SHOULD JUST HANG FROM YOUR FINGER. IF YOU BOB YOUR FINGER IT SHOULD BEGIN TO EXTEND JUST A SMALL AMOUNT. JUST REMEMBER THE THREAD IS THICKER AND MUST BE ADJUSTED BECAUSE OF THIS.

Hello, just a few quick questions. I have a Janome Harmony 1017 machine and I want to know if it is an oscillating hook or a rotary hook machine. Also, I was given a rolled hem foot and a zipper foot but...


The easiest way to know is to look at the bobbin case and if it has a finger sticking up then it is oscillating, plate If you have snap on feet to take the foot off just push the front of the foot up, to put the foot on, rest the foot on the needle plate then lower the presser bar down on top of it to snap on

Trying to sew tab tops on a thick curtain which is lined have got a larger needle and decreased tension but its not working help Using a Brother x3600 sewing machine


Put the tension back to the normal setting - around 4.

Lengthen the stitch to accommodate the multi layers.

When you are sewing and come to a thicker section, stop with the needle down, lift the presser foot and place a folded scrap of fabric under the back of the foot to keep it even. Lower the presser foot and continue sewing.

I Need Instructions for a ruffleing foot


Attach the foot to the machine, making sure you have the large hook over your needle bar. move the selection to the number you want to gather.... 1 is a small pleat gather, higher numbers are larger. the fabric is placed so that it goes over the bar underneath, then over the rest until under the sewing area. Try a sample first to see how it works. It really does make a nice ruffle. fee87fd.jpg

Presser foot lever


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. This could be accomplish by unplugging the SE-270D from the mains. After an extended period, plug back in and power on normally. In some variations, there would be a reset button/key/switch.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i use the automatic buttonhole on kenmore 19233??


Your machine should have a special buttonhole foot which has a place to insert a button, You will probably have to pull on opposite ends of the foot to open it. Place the button in the foot and then squeeze it together to make the button secure. Attach the foot to the machine. It should snap on.
looking at the left side of the machine you will see your needle bar at the front and the presser foot bar at the back. You should also see another lever which needs to be pulled down so that it rests in the buttonhole foot.Select buttonhole on your machine and it should sew. The button determines how long the buttonhole is.

How do you fit and use a quilters foot


The 1600-DB requires a special Walking or Even Feed Foot due to the high sewing speed, so ensure that you have the correct foot, as the "normal" top loading machine foot will not fit.

I hope these images will assist in showing how the fitting should look.


This is the Normal - WRONG - foot to compare:

This is the CORRECT Foot:


aba188b.jpg



From the Janome Accessories Guide:


"The even feed foot walks over fabric to assist with smooth feeding. Fabric can be sewn without puckering as the fabric is gripped and fed by both the upper and lower feed dogs. This foot has been specially designed for durability and to work at the high speeds of the 1600 series.


Part Number - 767-403-016"
