I have seen these machines with broken presser bar clamps (something inside the head). If it is just a bind then some oil on the presser bar may work, if the clamp is broken then it is probably not worth fixing.

Had the same problem.
Open the cover where the light bulb is.
Follow the presser foot rod up into the machine.
You will find a metal keeper with a set screw facing the now open end of the machine.
That set screw has most likely come loose.
Since the presser foot is spring loaded to the down position leave the presser foot raising lever in the down position.
With your flat bladed screwdriver, gently push the metal keeper to it's lowest position. If it does not go easy, loosen the metal keeper set screw a bit. Lefty loosey.
Tighten the set screw on the metal keeper. Righty tighty.
