Singer Prelude Presser Foot Won't Go Down?

I have a Singer Prelude that until now, I've had no problems with. However, today I cannot get the presser foot to go down. The lever in the back works, but the foot won't budge. Help!

It could be a thread jam - download this free copy of your user manual from SingerCo and follow the directions in the troubleshooting section at the back of the booklet:

If that doesn't help, be sure that the presser foot is properly attached, check to see if the feed dogs are in the correct position, and (this happens a lot) the machine has been switched back to sewing mode after winding a bobbin.


In the end, though, you may need to take the machine to a repair tech (it's a fairly new model so yours might still be under warranty) - if the above doesn't work the only other reason for what you're experiencing is (probably, could be a couple of other things, too) that the spring-gear has failed.

This isn't a home fix. The repair tech has the knowledge and specialised tools needed to find and make this repair.
