How to raise the handle bars? I have been able to loosen the screws, but that only allows the handle to turn freely from front the wheel, not to raise it.

CAREFUL!!!! Go to a professional bike shop and let them see if you have enough stem (about 21/2" to 3") in the top tube. Less than that and it can snap off and you can get seriously hurt. More than likely, if they can raise it, you would only pay a minumum charge (not like a car, probably $5-$10)
It will be more if they have to install a new stem, because it involves taking it apart and putting it back together. But, it will be worth it if you like the bike other than it is not comfortable now. Remember, it is not made to be a cruiser which let you sit upright and are comfortable, Supension bikes are for mountain biking and rough terrain, going downhill and climbing. And you usually ride a smaller frame than normal because of how you ride the bike, too big and you lose control. So, the bars are almost always flat and you lean forward. I hope I answered your question, I have been in business for almost 40 years and do know what I am talking about.

The wheel on the right no longer moves the needle, it spins freely. It will sewwhen using the footfeed but not by hand.

The small handle attached to the hand wheel is the problem:
1. Loosen a small screw on the front or side of the small handle. Almost all the way.
2. Tighten the small handle as if you are tightening like you are going from loading a bobbin to sewing.
3. Tighten the small screw.

Raising handle bars

Right in the center of the handle bars you will find a nut ( usually allen key) that is in line with the tube going down/attached to the fork of the bicycle. Loosen this nut and unscrew it for about 5mm - don't remove it completely. Take a mallet and hit the nut firmly on its head to force it back the 5 mm unscrewed. It should release the tapered lock inside the tube and the handles can be adjusted. If it is still stuck, unscrew the nut more and repeat the process. After adjustment tighten the nut firmly, while holding the handles in position. It will lock again as it is getting tightened. Make sure it is secure by "clamping" the front wheel between your legs while trying to move the handles in any direction. Handle movement should not be possible when applying moderate to strong force. However, excessive force will result eventually in movement and or damage to the front wheel and is therefor not required.

Can not raise the handle bars on the Huffy Mojava Gulch?

You need to loosen the front bolt that holds the handle bars to the front wheel raise it to your desired position and then tighten it again, making sure that the handle bars are at the position you desire them. This will lock them in place so you can ride your bike and not let them fall back down deeper into the front wheel shaft.

Girls 24inch glacierpoint magna bike can't raise handle bars seems like a allen type screw in middle of bar just turns and still can't lift bar does that need to be replaced or is it something else

If that allen screw just turns both directions, and it won't tighten and it won't raise up when you loosen it, then the wedge nut at the other end of that screw has already fallen off inside. Or it could mean that the screw is broken. Turn the bike upside down and see if you can remove the screw. If it is broken, the repair will be difficult, but not impossible for a bike mechanic. If the screw comes out intact, then the only thing holding the handlbar stem in place is a bit of rust. Put the bike back upright. Stand over the bike as if you were going to ride it. Grip the front wheel between your knees and twist the handlebars as if you were steering while preventing the wheel from turning with your knees. Once it breaks free, pull it all of the way out. Turn the bike over again and the wedge nut should fall out. When you reassemble, take heed of the marking on the handlebar stem so that you don't raise the stem too high. Good luck.

Schwinn Impact MOS.....can the handle bars be raised? If so, do you loosen the small star nut on top, or the large nut at the base of the handle bars?

In order to raise the handle bars, you will need a hex key. Put it into the hex indentation at the top. Turn it left to loosen it. Then raise the handle bars to the desired height.

Need to raise the handle bar on my 2007 Marin Argenta road bike.

The stem for the marin is fixed so you'd have to replace it with one that is higher if you wanted to raise the elevation of your handle bars. You can pivot the handle bars for your preferred angle of comfort though. Loosen the 4 screws on the top of the stem and then you can adjust the handle bars to the correct angle that is best for you.

I need to raise the handlebar height on my 26" bike.

On the neck, the bolt would be at the top, dead center, screwed down inside the neck. Loosen it about 5 full revolutions. Then take a hammer and tap it back down. Lift the handlebar to desired height, and hold it there 'til tight. Also while it's a little loose turn it clockwise/counter clockwise, to make the bar straight (while holding the front wheel) before fully tightening. Then your done! Glad to help. Best wishes to you.
