Presser foot lever does not lift presser foot

My singer sewing machine came to me from a friend.
It doesn't have a model number on it, neither does any of the accompanying literature... manuals, instruction sheets indicate what model it is, so I have had to enter a random model in the space below in order to submit this request for help!

It does have this printed on the manual: "5,8,10, 13 &22 Pattern Sewing Machines."
Here is the problem:
When I raise the presser foot lever the presser foot shank does not raise. The foot remains down.

I can lift the presser foot manually, however. When I do this the lever does not move.

I have the exact same problem as the person with the Singer, but I have an ancient Montgomery Ward sewing machine. I have oiled it everywhere I thought it needed, but will open it up and try it again. If that doesn't work, I suppose it will need to be serviced, and I'll let everyone know how that goes.

If you can remove the cover on the left side you will see the presser foot bar. On the bar there will be a screw that may be loose. Turn the handwheel until the needle is all the way down and lift the foot manually until just before it makes contact with the needle clamp and tighten the screw on the presser foot bar.
That should do it.

    On every sewing machine presser foot bar there is a collar near the center of the bar. This collar has a screw in it to tighten it to the presser foot bar. The lifter hits this collar and raises the bar. If the screw is loose it will only raise the collar on the bar and not the bar. Maybe first you should reposition the collar (even loosen the screw to do so) and lower the collar down to the lifter lever. You will find the right spot so that when raising the lifter it will make contact with the collar with the screw in it and raise the presser foot bar. Pretty much the same on all sewing machines.

It could be that yours is frozen like mine was. I followed the directions for resetting the screw, but it still wouldn't go. I had to sand off the rust and tap the end with a hammer! Now it goes up and down just fine! I have a Singer 9005, but like the techie said, they are all a lot a like in this part.

Trying to thread bobbin and viewed manual several times. singer model 7258. screen first flashes C3 and then ][. cannot find troublr shooting codes in manual.


Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.

Need manuals


Most Singer manuals are available from http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . However, you need more than the year of manufacture to determine the correct manual. If you have the serial numbers, go to http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/serial-numbers/singer-sewing-machine-serial-number-database.html to look up the model number. The 1904 machine serial number probably started with B. Singer had ~15 sewing machine models assigned serial numbers in January that year.

I hope this helps.

I need an operating Manual for Singer 1116


Singer has the manual for the 1116 available for $15 (US). Go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals and enter the model number. Then click Search and click on the Add to Cart button. Unfortunately, Singer doesn't have a pdf of the manual available for download. Other sites have the manual for sale as well. For example: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-singer-1116.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Need operation manual for my 1995 electronic singer


There are general instruction manuals for machines, but we really need a model number to help you. Singer has a LOT of manuals available at www.singer.com. Go under US, then Customer Support, Manuals. Enter your model number (JUSTj the number) and see if your model comes up.

If it doesn't, or if Singer is charging for the manual and you want a free download, please leave me a comment back with the model number. I've got quite a few websites I can search through that may turn a free one up for download, but without the model number I can't do anything further.

Hope this gives you the answer-but please get back to me if it doesn't. There well may be a manual out there, and there's no reason to waste money or a good machine!
