Presser Foot Stuck in Down Position

My sewing machine pressed foot is stuck in the down position, and won't move up and down. I can manually lift the whole mechanism by pulling up hard on it, but the lever seems to be broken. Do I need to get it professionally fixed? Nothing else seems to be wrong.

Sorry, yes, this is a repair only a professional (or someone with correct tools and training) can make. Bonus - when he/she fixes the presser foot (usually a worn silicone gear), he/she will usually check the rest of the machine over for other potential problems.

Be sure to get an estimate up front, and see what a full servicing will cost you - cleaning, oiling, and checking the machine over for full functionality and is something that should be done at least every two-three years to keep a beloved machine sewing.

Actually the servicing should be done annually but few sewers are that conscientious:)
