Repairing a Singer Sewing machine presser foot lifter.


Inside the foot the wires are connected to two different screws. They are obviously coming loose by being pulled.
1. Open the foot on the bottom.
2. Look where the screws are. You need to have the wires connected there.
3. Before connecting to screws: tie a knot in the wire from the inside of the foot pedal where the wire protrudes through the hole.
4. Now, tightly connect the wire to each screw. Apply bottom of bracket. Now, sew!!!!!!!!!!

Most likely, the screw end on the machine has broken off.

The presser foot won't go down.


Yes indeed, it is possible--sounds to me like a screw worked itself loose. However, I would purchase the service manual for your machine. As a bonus, it tells you how to make all kinds of useful adjustments.

Go to Sewing Parts Online and do a search under Singer Service Manuals; if they don't have it in stock, call or email them and they will be happy to order it for you. Generally takes two weeks to get it in stock.

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

The presser foot lifter on my machine is not engaging this allows the needle assembly to spin - is there a way to fix this?


Your question is not clear. The pressure foot lifter only lifts the pressure foot. It doesn't make the needle spin.

I have a Singer 5050 and I can't get the pressure foot to snap on.


Set the foot under the shaft and lower the presser foot lever. The foot should snap on. Sometimes they can be contrary and you have to keep trying.

On some sewing machines there is an adjustment on top of the machine for adjusting the pressure of the presser foot and this sometimes confuses the term.

The presser foot lifter of my Singer 9432 has disconnected


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.

Presser foot lifter is stuck can i fix it


If you can't lift the presser foot up at all undo the presser bar screw on top of the presser bar, if you have a dial turn it to 0, you should now be able to move the lever, if it is still tight put some WD40 on the presser bar and leave it for a couple of hours.

Faulty presser foot lifter on a singer 2110/2112.


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.
Good luck!
