Invisible zipper foot
Will a Pfaff work on a Janome?

While my 1472 Pfaff was in the shop, I bought a new Janome which I love. I have an invisible zipper foot for my Pfaff. After looking on line for one for my Janome, the Janome ones looked almost identical to my Pfaff. It actually fit but I haven't tried sewing with it on. I don't want to take the risk of damaging my new machine. Do Pfaff foots work on Janomes?

My Janome is a low shank machine so as long as your Pfaff is also low shank, I don't see why it shouldn't work.

After you put it on, just lower the needle with the handwheel to make sure the needle won't hit the foot. If not, you're good to go!

The Pfaff feet for your machine are 9mm and the shank/bar of the foot are a smidgen wider than on a Janome. To try the foot on your machine use the Pfaff shank and turn the wheel to check needle clearance.
