Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines
I am quilting using a Baby Lock Elizabeth and a walking foot purchased from my Baby Lock dealer. I am able to attach the foot and sew without a problem, but then my presser foot and needle suddenly start jumping. The machine makes a popping or gun-shot like noise each time this happens. It only happens with the walking foot on. I've tried replacing the needle, re-threading, putting the presser foot on again, and sewing slower or faster. Nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions? Thank you!
If possible try suggestions given and check needle position make sure its not hitting something Adjust if possible take in for servicing.

Sounds to me like you are getting what I call "flagging" of the material... where a tiny bur or something catches the material and pulls it up. If possible increase the presser a bit on the presser foot. You might also have the wrong foot for the machine or simply a defective one.
Also when it does this... do you notice any bobbin thread on top of the seam?

SOURCE: sewing with walking foot
Take the needle out and run the machine for a while with the walking foot fitted. Refit the needle and try again but only turn the machine over by hand to see if the problem has cleared. If no luck it sounds like the walking foot timing needs adjusting.

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.

SOURCE: skipped stitches and noises
sounds like there might be some threads caught between the tension discs. Try using a small strip of fabric to 'floss' between them. You might also have some thread caught in the hook assembly.

You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.
Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.
Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.

The walking foot replaces the normal pressure foot on your machine. There is a screw on the left-hand side of the pressure shaft that holds the ankle (if your Necchi uses snap-on feet) on the shaft. Loosen this screw until the pressure foot (or the pressure foot/ankle combination) comes off. Now slip the walking foot on where the other foot came off and tighten that screw. You're ready to go!
