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).

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.

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!!!

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.

Your feet are snap on feet. If you look carefully at them there is a little metal bar across the top. Your foot "carrier" has a little hook-like thing that snaps over that bar. to remove the foot that's on there now, lift your presser foot, grasp the toe of the foot and pull up. This should unsnap it from the carrier. Once it's removed, sit your new foot on the feed dogs below the hook-like thing and lower the presser foot bar... the foot should just snap into place easily. Some of the older ones you had to press down on the thumb screw a little to get it to snap.

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 will not stay atached


If you have snap on presser feet sometimes they can wear very quickly on the snap on part or the gap at the snap on part is too wide due to either wear or manufacture, replacement is the only answer

Singer sewing machine 2662 wont' work with Singer darning foot


Are you sure it is the right foot for your model sewing machine?

If the machine has a snap-on presser foot, the adapter the foot snaps onto needs to be removed.

The newer models have a lower/short shank and older models have a higher/longer shank. And then there are the old models with a slant shank.

Pressure foot does not stay in place...comes loose


Not sure what the problem is.

There is a screw that holds the presser foot shank to the presser bar.

When the presser foot shank is lowered, it snaps onto the presser foot.

See page 26 of the manual - http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html

Turn power switch to "0"

How to put on presser foot "p" to embroider


Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.

But to change presser fot:

If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.

If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.
