E99670 short shank, or snap on presser feet?


Make sure--Does the machine take a short shank presser foot? If so, you can replace it with a short shank zig-zag presser foot. You can probably go to a regular sewing machine repair shop and find a replacement presser foot.

**NOTE--the links below are examples of what is available. I cannot vouch for these vendors as I've never purchased from them. Do your own due diligence before purchasing!!!

Here's an open toe presser foot:

or a regular zig-zag foot:

OR you can buy a short shank adapter and a kit of snap-on presser feet that will give you a big variety of different kinds of presser feet, probably including a zipper foot, hemmer foot, 1/4" quilting foot, darning foot, teflon foot, etc....(probably more than she will ever use!) The snap-on kits are available online, try eBay or some of the other sites. They most likely are not Singer brand, but are most likely generic. However, if your granddaughter is just learning, this may be the broadest variety of choices.

These are examples of snap-on presser feet available.

Snap-on Adapter example (most kits do not include the adapter):

My daughter is studying costume design she has to provide her own zipper foot (L & R). If she doesn't have a model # for the Brother sewing machine will any Brother industrial foot work? Thanks!!


The Brother should have a model somewhere on the machine unless the label has been removed. There should be a label, perhaps on the back of the machine or near the electrical plug.

She can determine which type presser foot she needs:

Or she can take a presser foot from her machine to a Brother dealer or sewing repair shop and they can tell her which foot will work.

Why doesn't walking mechanism work?


if the pressor foot anvil doesn't move up and down /back/forth , the machine might be in "DARNING " mode this is usually a small button in the bobbin area , but some machines have them on the back of cabinet as well

Material won't move over the dog ears


If your feed dogs are functioning well, then perhaps the pressure on your presser foot is set too high (or you haven't lowered the presser foot, which is on the back or side back near the presser foot). The adjustment for pressure is often on the inside left door of most sewing machines. There are often numbers either on a dial, or little numbered slots and typically the smaller the number, the more the pressure/closer the foot is to the machine/feed dogs). If the machine is vintage, then there is a thumb screw on top of the machine above the needle bar, and you change the pressure that way. Hard to answer without knowing what machine you have, as on vintage Bernina's, the setting is inside the machine itself. Just make sure that your feed dogs are moving, and your stitch length is set to a longer length, as sometimes the stitch length is set too short, which may not be obvious to the layperson, on a vintage machine. That can be why your fabric isn't advancing, and sometimes the feed dogs wear out and need to be replaced, or there is thread or gunk that is constricting it's full motion.

Presser foot stopped working I turned


Did you connect your machine then press the foot control before you lowered you presser foot? I have a CS6000 and that is what E1 means on my machine. You did not put your model number in so I don't know. You can look in your manual or go online to www.brother-usa.com and look it up for your machine. Try unplugging and plugging it in again, but put your presser foot down then step on your foot pedal.

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.
