I've just fixed the jamming problem!
My ruffler foot came with a little round tube - I didn't know what it was for so I put it somewhere safe and forgot about it - until I had the jamming problem.
You need to put the little tube over your needle bar. Remove the screw that holds the needle in place - put the tube on the needle bar and replace the screw.
Works perfectly now.
The tube is 1cm long, approx 8mm wide and fits loosely over the needle bar and is tapered slightly at the end.

I hope this helps!
