Singer Automatic Threader Stuck?

I have a Singer 6160. I don't usually use the automatic threader, but was playing with it to see if it worked and it became stuck in the down position. Then the plastic lever broke. Now my machine won't work. We've tried just pushing the threader back up, but it won't budge. Since I really don't use it, I'd love to just remove it, but I don't know how. BTW, I live in Belize so there is no "local service center" to take it to for repair. I would have to ship it to the US and then ship it back here - a vey costly proposition. Any help would be appreciated!

Visit the following website - he repairs vintage Singers and gives a lot of information free on his website:

www.tandtrepair.com/

He has an email address on his pages so if you don't find the info you need to do the repair yourself, you can email him and he will very likely cheerfully reply with a bullet-listed step-by-step to getting your machine back to sewing.

I live in Scotland and do a bit of self-taught vintage machine repair but he's MUCH better at explaining things!
