Question about Singer 5062 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a Simplicity Heavy Duty Performer S110 that I haven't used in about a year. I pulled it out of the closet to hem some pants. The plastic lever that raises the presser foot no longer works. I can't get the lever to budge at all. Tried oiling it and still nothing. Everything else works fine. I'm afraid to put too much pressure on the lever since it's plastic and seems like if I push too much it will break off. Do you have any suggestions before I drag it down to the repair shop? Thank you!! Yes I have the same problem. Cant raise the foot so i cant get the plate out either.
You lever doesn't work because the presser foot Bar is seized from lack of use.Open the side of the machine to access the bar. Put a mixture of water and ammonia ( about 80%water 20% ammonia) on the top and bottom of the bar. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes then try to move the presser foot Up by lifting the foot with a screw driver. Do not pry so hard you break something. It should get progressively easy the more times you do this. Put some sewing machine oil on the top and bottom of the shaft and it should be good to go.
