Pressure Foot Won't Go Up or Down

My vintage Kenmore sewing machine's pressure foot won't go up or down. The handle just moves freely without lifting the foot. How do I fix it?

Check to make sure the bobbin winding feature isn't set; check to see if the presser foot lever has been loosened, and finally, check to be sure the presser foot is actually connected to the lifter lever.

If none of that helps it is time to call Sears and schedule a visit with the Kenmore repair tech.
