    Broken Foot

    broken foot.jpg. Now I have a black spot on the back ground of my quilt. The foot just fell apart. As far as I can tell it didn't damage my machine. I have broken tons of needles but never a foot. My dh said the soldering came loose.

    Better your sewing foot than what I thought this thread was about. Maybe send it back to the company.

        I am glad that it wasn't a foot attached to your body! And I hope you can get rid of that black spot. I had a 1/4" foot break on me. I had the foot less than a year, and hadn't used it all that much, either. I took it back to the store, and was given a replacement. The foot was part of a sample of a new system for measuring 1/4", and because of that, there was no question of how long I had the foot. I haven't had any problems with the replacement. (It was a saleperson who gave me the replacement. I am not sure that would have happened if the owner had been there, however.)

          Yes, I was afraid that you had broken YOUR foot! FMQing is hard on the foot because it gets such a workout!

              The only presser foot I've had break were 2 generic FMQ feet which I purchased to learn FMQ with. They had a lot of plastic parts. I think I paid <$10. each for them. After I got the hang of it, I spent more $ & got a machine-specific FMQ foot that was more sturdy. It has worked fine. Now that I have the Baby Lock Tiara II LA, I no longer quilt on my DSM unless I'm doing cross hatching, for which I use the walking foot.

                This was a Juki foot that came with my machine. I am going to try to find a replacement. I think I will just use the quilt myself then the black spot won't matter.

                  A lady who sells another brand of machines told me I should contact Juki about the broken foot because the foot should not have fallen apart. Within 3 hours after contacting Juki I received an email telling me they were going to replace the foot. I bought the machine several years ago and I think its wonderful that they cared enough to give me such a quick response and the foot.
