Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I borrowwed a singer 4166 from a friend and it works great but the foot pedal won't work (and I'm not used to sewing by pressing a button). I plug in the foot pedal and nothing happens, is there a switch someplace I've missed? I've never had such problems trying to sew and its quite frustrating - I've got a lot of work to do and my machine is broken and I can't find a user manuel or solution anywhere - help would be greatly appreciated.

More than likely you need a pneumatic transducer. It's the part that your air tube connects to and that is what actually makes your machine run.

Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.

You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.
Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.
Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.
