Have a certified repairman look at the power board in the machine. The power supply circuits are broken on the board itself. Can be repaired with wire and solder. How do I know? Just fixed my wifes 1229 that had the same problem.
P.S. New boards are NOT available from PFAFF or anyone else

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: The foot control just stopped
if there is power to the machine itself then it is probably not the fuse. if the entire machine is off then you need to change the main fuse in the plug (the one you plug into the wall socket).
first, unplug the pedal from the machine and plug it back in securely again. it may have just worked loose.
if the machine itself still has power,it may be an internal fault in the pedal, but it is quite likely that there is a broken wire in the foot pedal.
this is a fairly common problem with sewing machines as the foot pedal gets moved about and has the cord wrapped up when the machine is put away. eventually this can break one of the wires in the same way that bending a paperclip repeatedly will snap it.
if this is the case then the break will almost certainly be within 1" of the pedal.
it can be repaired quite easily by cutting out the break and reconnecting the wire inside the pedal but i would not recommend trying this yourself unless you are quite confident with electrical wiring.
an electrician would also be able to test that the footpedal itself is working properly and rule out any faults with the pedal itself.
please feel free to ask for more details if you have a 240v electrical test meter and would like detailed testing instructions.
