If the machine won't work with two pedals that are good then the problem isn't the foot pedal. Does the light turn on? If this is functional then you know there is "electricity" attached to it. Since both pedals aren't functional you will have to have the motor and connecting cord (inside machine) to see which is the problem. By the way; if the problem is the cord inside the machine you may not want to plug it in. You stand a chance of getting shocked. Have it checked for safety.
This type of machine is usually referred to as a mini sewing machine and as such it is manufactured by the million with minor styling variations and various makers' badges. They all use the same foot control and power adaptor.
The simplest solution is to search for "mini sewing machine foot pedal" or similar on eBay, but don't pay very much because the machines are simply not worth it. They can be bought new for around £50 including accessories and manual etc. I think about a£10 is what you might have to pay but honestly you'd be better off with a second hand full sized machine.
Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.
Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?
your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?
If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.
