Its possible that the spring on the presser bar has broken or jammed up.

Needle bar does not move in zig zag mode on singer 457 stylist and will not move to full left with the position lever


Have you changed your presser foot over to the zig zag foot? On some machines it won't work correctly until you change to the correct presser foot.

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.

The presser foot on my Singer Touch & Sew 756 is stuck in the up position. I can move the lever up and down but the presser foot will not move. Any suggestions.


Very common thing because the presser bar is always very tight in the housing, all you need to do is put some easing oil or wd40 on the bar and physically move the bar up and down and it will free off

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.

I have a singer inspiration 4210 and I'm trying to change the presser foot, I followed the instructions but pressing down on the screww does not snap the foot in place, I have tried using various...


I think you have to position the new presser foot under the shank then drop the presser foot lever down as if you were beginning to sew. This should snap the new presser foot right on. Be sure the little bar is positioned under the hook.

My presser foot lever wont lift the presser foot all the way up on my singer


Make sure that your needle is in the highest position, turn your handwheel towards you, not away from or else you will mess up the timing

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 lever does not lift presser foot


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.
