[Sewing] Presser foot won't raise

For a while the knee pedal has been broken and unable to lift the
presser foot on the straight stitch Juki. Additionally, the lever on
the rear of the machine head that lifts the foot and holds it up...
doesn't work either. Last Wed I fixed the knee pedal... but not well
enough and it broke again, this time leaving a screw wedged very
inaccessibly in the workings such that a much larger disassembly will be
needed to get it out and do a proper repair.
I'm willing to do this but don't have the time until next Wednesday
(assistance or at least company would be super helpful). I feel
confident I can fix the knee pedal then, but I may not be able to fix
the hand lever. Alternately we could pay Billy the repair guy to come
and Just Fix It.
The machine is functional and sews, but you have to push your fabric
under the foot from the front to get it under the needle, which is
annoying. And it's not really possible to do corner turns.
