Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine
So, I pulled out my sewing machine to sew some stuff together, and the foot pedal doesn't work. I haven't used it in probably a couple of months, and every time I have used it, I have had no problems. Well this time the plug end of the foot pedal easily slides into the machine, and doesn't really stay in all that well. Regardless, it doesn't work at all, as if the plug isn't going in correctly. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I am about 90% sure it does not have anything to do with the actual foot pedal.
There is two seperate cords on this machine. A power cord and a pedal cord. If you put the power cord in and switch the machine on, and then remove the pedal cord it should give you a beeping sound, which shows you the connection does work.
Please give me feedback in order to help you

I have just discovered the exact same problem with my 7462. At first I thought that I had pulled the shaft of the foot pedal outlet still attached to the plug and lost it on the floor somewhere. However, I just spoke with a parts supplier who suggested that the plug no longer fit into the outlet snugly because the shaft liner had broken off and fallen down inside the machine. He instructed me to be sure to UNPLUG the machine so I would not electrocute myself. I then was able to use a flashlight and metal probe to find some loose parts just inside the opening for the foot pedal plug. Unfortunately, this will mean a trip to the sewing machine repair shop, but at least I can stop looking (in the vacuum cleaner bag, under every table...) for a loose part.
