Possibly your cord or foot control are bad. It could also be the motor that is not working. Before replacing all those parts take it to a professional to check where your problem is. I use a test panel that allows me to safely short out parts that will then light a light when the offending part is bypassed with a jumper wire.

Brother sewing machine. Needle won't respond to foot pedal. Worked yesterday. Pedal is plugged in.

Does the light still work on your machine? If so, it probably has something to do with the foot control or its connection to the machine.

What would cause my Kenmore sewing machine's light to turn on but the motor seem to have no power?

The wiring for the older Kenmore is simple. The light switch completes the connection to the light. If the foot pedal has failed or connection loose where the wire attaches from the foot-pedal the motor will not run.

Also if the brushes in the motor are worn or failing to contact the motor internally the motor will not run.

With light on and pedal partially depressed attempt to activate motor to determine if brush connection are faulty. If the motor reacts at all the brushes will likely need to be replaced.

No success borrow a foot pedal from a friend or sewing center to determine if the pedal control is faulty.

Hope this helps?

Hi the light works on the singer samba 2 but the pedal doesnt, any ideas, I havent thread any cotton through it would that make a difference, thanks

The light will work even if the pedal isn't functioning. The foot pedal in your machine sounds like it needs to be repaired or replaced . To make sure that your machine isn't the problem you can plug a friends pedal in just for a trial run.

Foot petal is not working and it is plugged in.

Is there power, does the sewing bed light come on? If so there is probably a fault with the pedal. If you are practical you can open the pedal and fit a volt meter across the terminals to see if the voltage increase when the pedal is pressed.

My juki serger mo-634de suddenly stopped working. Lights on, wheels and parts move freely, even stitching seems to work if I turn it manually, but nothing happens when I push the pedal. No sound. ...

Hi, I have the exact same machine. it sounds like the wire from the foot pedal to the machine is broken. You would still get power from the wall to the machine to light the light, but no 'gas pedal'. You could maybe get an electrian to test the connection under the foot pedal and if the wire is damaged? or maybe the part that plugs in the machine is cracked or damaged?
Good luck! Annette
