That's the presser foot and it is made to be removed so you use other presser feet for certain functions.

The owner's manual should have instructions on how to remove and install a presser foot,.

I realize this is a year too late, but maybe someone else can benefit from this answer... I have a 3204B and the feed dog is to the right of the bobbin area. It has red lettering on the face and requires a little umph to raise it.

I had exactly the same problem on the exact same model 3205FA. I'm not an expert, but have a little experience on solving my wife and daughter's sewing machine mechanical problems. I would suggest the following: A. Page 6 of the owners manual see item # 1...to be precise it is 1 1/2 times around. B. Page 7 at the bottom, Make sure the bobbin tension spring is set so that there is tension. When holding the tread the bobbin shouldn't unroll. If jiggled about 2-3 inches the bobbin should release about 1/3 of that distance. C. Page 8 at the bottom, ill. # 2. There are two flange holders and screws that hold the bobbin case in position located at about 5 and 7 o'clock. Make sure both screws are tight. This is important. D. Make sure the thread is treaded through the upper tension adjustment properly. See page 9 # Illustration C. Terrible illustration. Keep the dial generally in the green range. E. Put in a new needle, the needles that come with the machine are just short of terrible. Wouldn't hurt to buy good top quality needles for the machine.

Sewing machines need to be worked periodically even if you aren't sewing a lot. The oils and greases inside get all gummed up and literally will seize them up. Your best bet is to take it to the pro, pay the $$$ and have them, clean, oil, grease, replace belts, and adjust. OR if you want to give it a try.. DIY... kerosene based cleaner. Clean it well, then oil it properly. Make sure the machine is UNPLUGGED while cleaning.

Dunno. Talk to the local sewing machine repair shops, or send a photo of what's going on (or not going on) to Ron Anderson at A1 Sewing -- he's always been helpful, has a good reputation for speedy service. [email protected] Depending on the age of this machine, you may be looking for a parts machine to rob.

Undo tthe needle to raise the needle arm ...this will allow you to get under and carefully cut away the jam....there really is no easy way, and you may have already damaged the fabric if it is in the feed teeth, so be slow and gentle.

Vinyl will stick to the presser foot so either pit talcum powder on the vinyl or have a toilet roll on your lap and sew the toilet roll on the vinyl then peel it off

Ok which is it? A Singer or a Necchi?

If it is a Singer or a machine like the one picture here.... slide the grey metal plate toward you. You'll see the "drop in bobbin" Look for a little lever or button that will lift the bobbin up so you can get it out.

Change the needle. It sounds as if it has been damaged and bent.

Are you sure it's a screw type knob and not a push pull button type?

Necchi 3102... | Answered on Oct 02, 2013

Flat Bed Attachment is correct. Is Necchi even made anymore? I don't think so. Your search may be futile. However a good wood worker could make you something to fit.

You might have thread stuck in the feed dog.

Necchi 3102... | Answered on Oct 02, 2013

It may not have seized there may be a very small piece of thread jammed in the raceway area, you need to take the bobbin case and the raceway out to check
