Most sewing machines can use a universal foot, meaning you can buy the foot at nearly anyplace that sells sewing supplies. I'd suggest removing the foot from your machine and taking it with you to your local Joann's/Hancock Fabrics or small shop (check your yellow pages or Yahoo!Local) and ask them to give you a hand. They can look at the foot you have and help you see if a universal foot will fit.

I've never heard of a machine that doesn't use a universal foot-in my 30+ years of sewing, I'm still using the universal foots from my grandmother's 50+ year old tailoring machine! And I know have a computerized embroidery machine that's only 3 years old! But do be on the sure side and go into a store if you can.

Presser foot doesn't go down. Presser foot lever goes up and down but the presser foot does not. Singer sewing macine.


There may be a disconnection between the lever and the presser foot bar. Perhaps a screw has fallen out, broken, or is loose? May need to take it for service.

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Toyota sp100 sewing machine - can't lower foot pressure on clothing


Berend: Thick fabrics require a longer stitch length. If the longer stitch length doesn't work check your attachments for an Easy Feed foot (It sort of mimics a walking foot.)

My Rose sewing machine will not sew. It beeps and the presser foot icon flashes. I have re threaded, re bobbined, re placed the presser foot, and I think I have cleared the memory, but I am not really...


That light means you need to lower the presser foot. It cannot sew until the foot is lowered. The lever to lower the foot is behind the needle area on the back.

Missing part of sewing machine


That should be your foot I'm guessing?!? The machine should have come with several?!? Like, a zipper foot, button hole foot etc. Mine (Janome SX 2122) are stored in my machine, in the top section where you load the thread. , you can use one of the others. Mine also has a spare basic foot...have a look and see if it's there either in or with your machine or with some of the extra parts it should have come with (may run into troubles if it's second-hand though...as you may not even have all of the parts)...if you don't have a basic foot you can often just use one of the other feet (like a zipper foot or something), which may not quite hold the material down, depending on what you're sewing, at least until you get a chance to get another basic foot...which you can get from any store that sells material or sewing machines. Hope that helps :)

Brother Computerized Sewing Machine SE 270-D


Unfortunately, I had to send my machine to a registered Brother repair shop. It was still under warranty but cost $25 to ship. If yours is brand new, I would suggest taking it back for a new one. I went without mine for a month and a half while it was being repaired. Hope it works out for you!
