Rocking the pedal forward and back turns left and right. There is a button which is pressed on the pedal to turn it on. Speed is controlled by a roller wheel on the pedal. Lift your foot off the pedal and it will turn off. Please check the bellow instructions for the detailed information of its movement.

For the forward movement first sit on the seat that is closest to the trolling-motor foot control. Choose the speed setting on your trolling motor. The trolling motors have numbered speed control on the foot controls ranging from slowest speed starting from 1 to 5 or 10 which is the highest speed. Now press the "Constant" or "Momentary" control switches on the foot controls, if you check they are placed on the sides or ends Press them with the end of your shoe or toe. This action will cause the trolling motor to turn on and Put the boat in motion. Some trolling motor models only have a "Constant" or "On" button. As the words suggest "Constant" will run the trolling motor continuously until you turn it off again, and "Momentary" will run the motor for a short time.

For the left and right movement press the front foot control which is also called "toe down" to turn right. Press the rear foot control down or "heel down" to turn left. Now release the foot control to let it go straight. To continue going in a straight line just do nothing the machine is set to go straight by default. But you need to have the foot in pedal to get it going.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Elna SU buttonhole- I can't remember the order to set the dials for the automatic button hole function. Anyone know? Thanks

sure, put on the buttonhole foot after putting a button into it and using the screw knob to set the length you want.
Turn stitch length knob and stitch width knobs to zero, (always set them to zero first to avoid wear on the stitch selection mechanisim) then turn the left stitch selector knob to the blue button hole symbol. Now turn middle knob stitch width, to the blue buttonhole symbol. Now turn right knob stitch length to blue 1, sew down the first side of your buttonhole until foot slide in the buttonhole foot reaches end stop. raise needle and turn stitch length to blue 2, and sew three bar tacks across buttonhole. Again, raise needle and then turn stitch length to blue 3 and sew back down otherside of buttonhole until you reach the end stop. Needle up, turn length know to blue 4 and sew three bartacks to end. there is a last blue symbol dot on stitch length knob, this will sew a stitch in place to tie off the ends. Raise pressure foot, remove your work and draw top threads to underside with a needle, and tie off or use a dot of fray stop. Done! if you don't have a manual you could email me and I'll send you a copy of mine, tallygirl98 at yahoo dot com.

Where can i find watch dial for shc041

Firstly, what is a shc041? The cleats are called dial feet. They orient the dial to the movement so 12 is always at the top. When they break the dial spins around. Three solutions. Anew dial from the manufacture. A used dial from another watch, maybe from a popular auction site, or "dial dots". Small adhesive dots used to adhere dials with broken dial feet to movements. Sometimes successful, sometimes not. A forthis to send the dial to a dial refinishing company and have new feet soldered on.

abrams I would start with the batteries. If you have a digital voltmeter set it to 200 volts dc and plug the meter into the 2 outter holes on the charger port located under the front of the joystick. Fully charged the voltage should read 24-27 volts. If you are not getting this voltage then replace the batteries It requires 2 U1 batteries. Hope this helps

The feed dog is not grabbing the material or the presser foot pressure doesn't seem to be working. I have a Viking 6000 SL sewing machine, Model 6460.

The little white button on the lower right front of the machine is the button that drops the feed teeth. If it is pressed in the feed teeth are down, push in a lift upward to be sure it's in the "Up" position. Then look on the left side of the machine, you'll see a dial, (NOT the dial facing you as you sit in front of the machine) make sure the red dot on the dial is lined up with the red dot on the painted part of the machine.
Finally look at the dial on the front of the machine. The one with the little button in the center of it. Put it on the number 3. If your machine doesn't feed fabric after doing what I've outlined then you need to take it in for service.

Plastic foot. I'm missing one out of four. Emerson Model MW8779W. Need one. Can you help?

Sadly, no. You may find a similar one at Lowe's/HomeDepot/similar, or you may want to remove the other three and replace all of them with the same type. Would those stick-on felt dots work for you?

W123 holding some water and dial keeps spinning around checked the filter all clear

may be a blockage in the sump hose or pump feed hose or the pump itself may be faulty. the dial will click round to tell you there is a fault. to reset turn the dial onto every DOT and turn on for 10 secs then off and onto the next dot it will flash for a couple of seconds to confirm.
