Sometimes the feet are faulty, rest the snap on foot on the plate and lower the shank down and press hard

Turn power switch to "0"
raise the needle to highest position by turning the wheel toward you(counterclockwise) and raise the presser foot lever

place a different presser foot on the needle plate so that the bar on the presser foot is in line with the slot on the shank
lower the presser foot lever and fix the presser foot onto the shank. If the p foot is in the correct location the bar will snap in you should hear a click or snapping sound let me know if this helped thanks! amy

I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.
Good luck!

It sounds as though you are missing the ankle which is the part the foot attaches to. The ankle attaches to the metal rod with a screw and the foot snaps onto the ankle.

E99670 short shank, or snap on presser feet?


Make sure--Does the machine take a short shank presser foot? If so, you can replace it with a short shank zig-zag presser foot. You can probably go to a regular sewing machine repair shop and find a replacement presser foot.

**NOTE--the links below are examples of what is available. I cannot vouch for these vendors as I've never purchased from them. Do your own due diligence before purchasing!!!

Here's an open toe presser foot:

or a regular zig-zag foot:

OR you can buy a short shank adapter and a kit of snap-on presser feet that will give you a big variety of different kinds of presser feet, probably including a zipper foot, hemmer foot, 1/4" quilting foot, darning foot, teflon foot, etc....(probably more than she will ever use!) The snap-on kits are available online, try eBay or some of the other sites. They most likely are not Singer brand, but are most likely generic. However, if your granddaughter is just learning, this may be the broadest variety of choices.

These are examples of snap-on presser feet available.

Presser foot wont connect


It is most likely the presser foot you are trying to install was not made for your machine. There are so many machines available and most of those machines have their own presser feet, which are not interchangeable. Unfortunately, even a Singer presser foot is not interchangeable with other Singers. Some have screw attachments, others have lever attachments, some have long shanks, others have short, some are straight, others are slanted. You need to figure out what style presser foot your machine takes and then search for either the presser feet that fit or a shank adapter that you can then use snap-on feet (kits are available on eBay).

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

I have a Sears Kenmore sewing machine I want to get a 1/4 in presser foot for it, is there one and where would I get it/


You first need to determine which shank the presser foot uses on your machine. You can compare your shank (current presser foot) with these photos to see which one your machine uses.

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx

NOTE: If you purchase a snap-on presser foot, you will also have to buy a "shank adapter" that will attach the presser foot to the needlebar. Here are some pictures of snap-on adapters:
Kenmore sewing machine snap on adapter Google Search
However, you will still need to make sure to buy the correct adapter for your machine. The GREAT thing about buying a snap-on adapter is you can add a lot of presser feet to your sewing machine accessories because you can purchase additional snap-on presser feet or even a complete set of snap-on feet that will all work with your adapter and your machine!!!
Kenmore Presser Feet eBay
You will just snap one foot off and snap another on!!! Great idea!!!

OR--you can take your current presser foot along with the make & model of your machine and check with the local sewing repair shops to see if they have what you need.

FYI, once you know what shank your machine has, you can probably also find other specialty feet for your machine, ie walking foot, free-motion foot, etc.

How do I PUT together the presser foot. the part that snaps into foot


Here's a manual you can download. It should have instructions for attaching your presser foot:

If you are using snap-on feet, be sure that you have the low-shank snap-on adapter for your machine (looks something like these) that actually clamps onto the presser foot:

Yes, any low shank should work. If it doesn't you can always regift it to someone.

I think you have to position the new presser foot under the shank then drop the presser foot lever down as if you were beginning to sew. This should snap the new presser foot right on. Be sure the little bar is positioned under the hook.

Presser foot does not snap down - it rather floats


Hi, the presser foot bar needs cleaning and oiling. Open the cover over it if you can or just go at it from the bottom. It may be best to clean it with something with kerosene such as liquid Wrench from your local hardware store or a gun barrel cleaning solvent. Then a clear sewing machine oil and exercize it good until it starts snapping down again.
