I was given a singer 3820 (150 anniversery) machine.

It came with all its parts but no manual and I cant figure out how to put the foot on it or how to lower it down to sew

Can anyone help!?!

I can take photos if need be.

The worth of a rider is not measured by the times they fall but by the times they get back on.

I don't know about the machine, but you might check the Singer website for a manual.  catdaddytn

I don't have that particular machine, but have owned a couple of singers, so I'll try to help out.

To lower the presser foot - there is generally a lever on the back of the machine usually right behind the needle.  Sometimes it's to the right of the needle (located inside the open area of your machine right above your seam guide), but in both cases it's a lever.

Most machines are snap on feet.  Right behind your shank (the metal stick that comes out of your machine) should be a "button" or a really small lever that you press.  Your foot should fall off your machine as long as it is raised.  To get the foot back on.  The bar on the machine foot under the u shaped clamp and lower the presser foot so that it snaps in.
