You probably purchased the incorrect walking foot for your specific machine. check and make sure if you have a high shank or a low shank....the way to determine if you have a low-shank is to measure the screw from the plate and look at the distance if it is 5/8 then you have a low, any higher about 1in. then you have a high shank, so you would purchase a foot depending on your shank.

What is a walking foot and what does it look like,please


There is a "fork" or straight bar on the needle-screw side of the foot that wraps around or sets on top of the needle screw. This fork/bar moves with the needle and causes the foot to pull fabric through the top, much like the feed dogs underneath.

Be sure you get a walking foot that will work on your machine!

When installing the foot, it helps to raise the presser foot bar as far up as it will go and that the foot is tilted slightly to slip in on. If you have a knee-lift bar, using it to lift the presser bar will sometimes give you just what you need to get it on. Do NOT bend the walking foot to put it on.

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.

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.

Old Bernina 830 walking foot not pulling item through.Lever not letting foot down completely but can push it down the rest of the way with my fingers


Hi Linda:

Does your 830 have a black needle clamp and screw instead of the standard nickel plated clamp? If not, the walking foot forked driving lever may be damaged by having used the machine with zigzag engaged. Another problem with older 830 machines is that the needle clamp has been repeatedly tightened very tight, causing the needle bar base to become damaged so that the clamp is no longer perpendicular to the direction of sewing...In other words, the clamp sets crooked on the needle bar.
The black clamp made for the walking foot had a specific diameter for the forked driving lever of the walking foot. The black clamp was also longer so that when using a wide stitch width, the driving fork of the walking foot did not collide with the needle bar clamp screw on the right side.
Please reply with your observations.

I have just started learning how to quilt and I was told I needed a walking foot to quilt the sandwich together. I purchased one today, but I don't even know how to attach the foot. I also need to...


The foot is attached as normal, but when you're attaching it, the fork-shaped part that sticks out of the right-hand-side has to be hooked around the round pillar sticking out horizontally from the right-hand-side of the needle bar and that holds the needle securing screw. When the foot is down, you will see that the upwards motion of the needle bar raises the upper set of feed dogs on the walking foot - the whole purpose of the walking foot is to provide, effectively, a set of feed dogs on the top of the material as well as the toothed ones below the stitch plate - this allows multilayered or thick materials to be sewn as when doing quilting.

Does a Brother walking (quilting) foot fit a Janome 625e? If so how do I attach it?


More than likely. You mount the walking in place of the regular foot. You just have to attach the fork over the needle clamp screw at the same time.

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.

How do I attach a walking foot


Okay let's get started.
  • First let's look at the walking foot.
  • Turn the bulky body so that it's away from you.
  • On the left you see a groove that is going to be where you attach the foot to your machine.
  • On the right is a u-shaped arm which you can move up and down. It will go over the needle clamp
Now, let's remove your present foot from the machine and look at it.
  • Loosen the foot screw until it almost comes off. (if it does come off, screw it back on a bit.) The screw is on the left of the foot-bar.
  • On the right you'll see the needle bar with a needle clamp (what you tighten when you replace a needle) on the right of the needle-bar.
Okay the walking foot business.
  • slide the walking foot into position so that the foot screw is in the slot on the right and the u-shaped arm is over the needle clamp, with the needle clamp in the middle of the u-shaped opening.
  • Tighten the foot screw securely, it's going to be under more strain than normal.
  • While you're at it, check that the needle-clamp is nice and tight as well.
Okay, then! There you go... Happy sewing.
