How do I remove or attach the presser foot ?

  • Use the appropriate presser foot for the type of stitch that you wish to sew, otherwise the needle may hit the presser foot, causing the needle to bend or break.
  • Only use presser feet designed specifically for this machine. Use of any other presser foot may result in injuries or damage to the machine.
  • When a stitch is selected, the symbol for the presser foot that should be used is shown in the LCD. Check that the appropriate presser foot is attached before starting to sew. If the wrong presser foot is attached, attach the appropriate presser foot.


  • The symbols for certain presser feet, such as zipper foot " I " and the quilting foot, may not appear in the screen.
