Where to purchase pressure foot (same one that comes on machine when purchased
I have been searching on line and in stores. Please help !
I had a jam on my machine and when it jammed the needle hit
the pressure foot and broke off the tiny piece to the right of the
needle. I can still use my machine with three threads but since
that piece broke off I can no longer use 4 threads.

If you go to the Simplicity Homecare website and click on Accessories, that will take you to their e-store for parts. I broke an upper looper needle on my SW432 last Saturday, ordered on Wednesday, and already have the replacement!

You should be able to find presser feet for your machine as long as you know what type of shank your machine takes. Just confirm that whatever you choose will fit a Singer model 4562. You can even purchase a snap-on shank adapter and then purchase snap-on feet for your machine.
I'm assuming that this is a generic style walking foot for low shank machines and it will fit your Elna?
To attach it, you will see a long lever arm at the front of the foot and the little curved bracket at the back of the foot.
Remove your usual foot and the clip on foot holder by undoing the thumb screw. Now fit the walking foot on instead by putting the lever arm around the needle bar and the curved bracket around the pressure bar and then putting the thumb screw back into place and screw up tight to hold the foot in place. Now lower the pressure foot and manually wind your machine forward a few stitches. As the needle bar goes up and down, it should move the long lever arm too which works the walking foot teeth gripping the top layer of fabric with each stitch.
You shouldn't need a specific CE100 presser foot. A universal presser foot that will attach with a side screw will work fine. I use standard zipper foot and other standard feet on my CE100 all the time.
If you don't know what a "universal" foot is, ask for help at your local Joann's or Hancock Fabrics, or whatever store you go to. Or do a search online for a Universal presser foot and examine it. It should have a spot on the lefthand side of the shank that the screw will slip into either from the top, behind or front to attach it to the shaft coming down from the machine. No need to purchase a special foot at all.
It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)
Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.
If this machine is a Rose, the screen flashes the foot because it thinks the foot is in the up position, not because your using the wrong foot type. There is a spring that can break and a switch that can sometimes go bad that gives that error message. A trip to your service tech is required. That part has a 20 or 25 year guarantee if you are the original purchaser. Labor was covered for one year from date of purchase.
