Make sure the u-shaped arm that is on the walking foot is "over" the needle screw i.e. the needle screw should be inside the u shape. The feed dogs need to be up also. Use the SET menu to set the machine for the correct fabric and function.
Is the walking foot new? I had one that I used a lot and it went nutty and had to be replaced. I pulled it apart and could not find anything out of place/worn out/broken but it just did not do the job any more. The new one works great.

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.

Bernina walking foot


Hm, just guessing here.

Have you checked to make sure the walking foot (u-shaped) bar is still attached to the needle bar? Are the feed dogs still in the up position and operating like they should?

Learn How to Use Sewing Machine Walking Foot

Something else that I've run across in my sewing adventures is that walking feet need periodic oiling to keep them operating. Just manipulate the walking foot with your hands and watch where there are moving joints. Then apply a small drop of good quality sewing machine oil to each joint. Work it in and then wipe off the excess so it won't stain your fabric.

No motor sound with walking foot on Bernina 1031?


Keep in mind that that is not a walking foot... it's actually an even feed foot.

Approach your issue logically. Take the EF foot off and put your normal foot one. Does the sound return to normal?

If it does... keep in mind that your machine is exerting more effort to make the EF foot work. That can make a motor sound differently.

There is a loud squeaky noise when machine quilting a meandering stitch with a darning foot. The feed dogs are down, stitch width is 0, length stitch is 2.5. The machine does not squeak when using regular...


Is the darning foot aftermarket or genuine darning foot for your particular model...If it is aftermarket, it may not be the correct length. What is you model?

I purchased an Elna 7000 on E-Bay.Wonderful machine. I also purchased a 492000-20 walking foot for it. I can not find instructions on how to attach the walking foot to the machine.


I'm assuming that this is a generic style walking foot for low shank machines and it will fit your Elna?
To attach it, you will see a long lever arm at the front of the foot and the little curved bracket at the back of the foot.

Remove your usual foot and the clip on foot holder by undoing the thumb screw. Now fit the walking foot on instead by putting the lever arm around the needle bar and the curved bracket around the pressure bar and then putting the thumb screw back into place and screw up tight to hold the foot in place. Now lower the pressure foot and manually wind your machine forward a few stitches. As the needle bar goes up and down, it should move the long lever arm too which works the walking foot teeth gripping the top layer of fabric with each stitch.

Trust this helps.

Elna walking foot


If your SU is an Air Electronic model i.e. 80's model, Elna didn't make a walking foot to fit. However, if you've got a walking foot that is the same height from sole plate to the screw fitting as a standard Elna foot then you could give it a try. The walking foot connects to the presser bar with a screw but the needle bar also needs to hook into a secondary lever on the side of the walking foot to make the foot actually move. Probably sounds very confusing . Check the movement of the foot manually by hand turning the fly wheel to see how it works before you actually use with the motor to minimise any problems if the foot doesn't fit.

Also you'll probably only be able to do straight stitch with this foot due to the clearance around the needle plate.

Stitches


Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.
