When I push the pedal nothing happens. I can hear the machine trying to sew, but nothing happens.

These plastic presser bar lifters do wear out a lot ,very common,,,,,,,,You can lift it up and file as close to the machine side on top just a couple of stroke son the file will usually give it a surface to hang on and it will stay up ,much easier than changing the plastic lever

Sounds like the linkage between the lifter and foot is caput. If you open the case, you void the warranty.

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.

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.

Hello I have a singer model 4552 I cant make the pressure foot stay up...the lever doesnt raise the foot high enough what doi do?

I have a used unit with the same problem. If you remove the plastic housing piece on the far left you can see how the foot lifter works. Raising the lever raises a collar around the main shaft. There is a screw in that collar which connects the collar with the shaft. If that screw is loose the collar will not raise the shaft. Caution: Tighten the screw very carefully, only enough so that the shaft lifts. I just overtightened and the collar has a crack now.
