Diagram of Voyager’s presser foot guide system
If the presser foot seems to be unusually loose (a lot of sideways movement and swiveling), even if the presser foot is tightly secured onto the shaft, the small c-shaped guide may be bent or broken. Newer model Voyagers have heavier duty, silver-colored guide that helps prevent this. The corresponding part on older model Voyagers is made of a black-colored, thinner metal that had a greater tendency to break or bend. Examine this diagram to see the orientation of this guide on the machine for troubleshooting purposes.
