Phaff 145 repair info?

Hi, I found someone else asking about their sewing machine, so thought I'd give it a shot.
I have a Phaff 145 H3, and in the middle of sewing, after lifting the foot up with the presser bar lifter, the shaft of the outside foot got stuck in the up position and now it doesn't move up and down when I press the pedal to sew. I opened the side to look inside and it doesn't look broken. After putting oil, I can lift it up and down, but it doesn't go all the way down, and it won't "walk" or lift when the machine is on and pedal pushed. Only the "vibrating " presser(inside foot) moves around like it should. I cannot tell what it should be connected to to make it move up and down.

If the presser bar (the shaft that holds the outside part of the foot) itself is not broken, the next possibility is that the screw that holds the presser bar spring bracket has loosened up or broken, or the bracket itself is broken. The presser bar spring bracket holds the shaft and provides up and down adjustment for the shaft. It could also be one of many other things. In any case, this is not something you can fix yourself. Take it to a professional industrial sewing machine mechanic to get it fixed.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
