I decided that since there was absolutely zero information on the good ol’ interwebs or the Pfaff manual about this, I would go step by step on how to put the free motion foot on. While looking for info I found several people looking for how to do this with no answers. Believe it or not, it is far from intuitive! But once you figure out what to do it is really quite easy :)
This is the same for all Pfaff Ambition and Passport models. It is different from the other machines.
This is what the foot looks like:
To get it on, you must first remove the presser foot attachment.
Make sure you disengage the IDT before doing this. See that screw? Unscrew it. Mine was CRAZY tight and I had to find a Phillips head screwdriver with a long handle, the mini one my machine came with just wasn’t doing the job.
Now you have this nice metal shaft to put your free motion foot into :)
Lower the needle, you have to do this in order to get the metal hook above it.
Squeeze the coils on the foot down so you can get the grey part under the presser foot shaft.
Put it under and then slide it up the shaft.
Get that screw you took out before and while you are holding up the foot in place, screw it in nice and snug.
Now just lower your feed dogs (you have to pull out the tray and the switch is behind the machine) and switch your stitch length to “0.0”
And you are all set to start free motion sewing! It is really crazy fun!
I really hope someone got saved some major hassles and headaches from this! :)
