Not sure what you mean by foot "rest." If it is presser foot, then you may not have the correct presser foot for your machine (basically, there are 3 types--low shank, high shank, & slant shank). Usually, there is also a pressure adjustment for the presser foot that increases the amount of pressure applied to the fabric and feed dogs. Consult your owner manual. Pressure adjustment is usually either a dial, a plunger type on the top left of the machine (pushing down increases the pressure--push down on the outer ring to release it), or a screw at the very top of the presser foot bar (sometimes under the top lid).

Is there a larger foot rest or a way to lower and extend foot rest


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.

When my wife presses the foot pedal, nothing happens, except that the computer display says "OL". Does that mean that the foot pedal needs to be replaced?


What is the machine make and model?

OL may stand for overload and depending on the make and model it may be due to a number of different causes.

Hello, I have a kenmore sewing machine model #385.19233 . It is not broken, what i need is someone who can tell me how to get this machine to do free motion sewing. I hope you can help me.


If your machine has an embroidery foot, this will allow you to free motion embroidery. The embroidery foot will be positioned close to the fabric but will not hold the fabric in place.The presser foot must be down so that you will have the correct tension. Once the foot is on, the presser foot lifter is in the down position, then it's up to you to guide the fabric under the machine in the pattern you want. I advise a regular straight stitch with about 6-8 stitches to the inch. Move the fabric at a medium speed under the foot. If you move too slowly the stitches will be too close. If you move too quickly you'll have HUGE skips in your stitches. The main thing to know is that you can't use a regular foot because it will hold the fabric in place, even if you lower the feed dogs. When I free motion, I use the embroidery foot and keep the feed dogs up just to give a little resistance but NOT to hold the fabric in place. I love doing the free motion and I hope this helps you get started. If it helps you, please come back and rate my advice. Thanks!

I was recently given a Euro-ProShark Automatic model 417 to use w/my quilting group at church. It is missing the manual, power cord and presser foot. Can you help me find out? Thanks.


Check out the foot controls at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/search.aspx?find=Euro+Pro+foot+control. They have a diagram at the top of each of the selections showing what the connection looks like. I looked at each of the Euro Pro Models that the foots are compatible with, but didn't find the 417. I found models close to it. But if you find a connection type that is the same, it should work. Make sure of the return policy before you order, just in case.

As far as the presser foot goes, a universal type presser foot fits nearly any machine I've ever dealt with and heard of in 30+ years of sewing. I still use my grandmother's universals from 60+ years ago on a machine that's computerized and only 3 years old, if that gives you an idea! Check out your local Joann's or Hancock Fabrics or local sewing store. Even ordering online for a universal presser foot will do you just fine.You can look on the same web site as for the foot control at http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/search.aspx?find=Universal+presser+foot for one.

Singer Esteem sewing machine. Needle works with all presser feet except my 1/4in quilt foot. It's hitting just to the side of the hole in the foot. How can I fix this? There is nothing to move the needle...


Check the needle to be sure it is not bent.

If this is not the problem, you will need to choose another foot to use until the machine can be repaired by a professional.

What instructions are there for a brother nx400 even-feed foot


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.

The Foot will not stay up when lifted


On most models you can use a dremel or a file to help "flatten" the spot that the presser foot lifter rests. So flatten the top of the back side of the lifter and roughen it a bit-no oil there.

I don't know how to attach the walking foot to my LS 2125.


When installing the walking foot, you must make sure that the arm that moves up and down is resting on the needle clamp screw. That arm controls the movement of the foot and that allows it to do its "walking" if it is not resting on the needle clamp then it will not work at all.
