Take your foot pedal apart and check for loose wires.
I once snapped up a Singer 301 for 20 bucks because of a broken wire in the foot pefal.

Wiring a foot control pedal for Singer 2010


Your question is not clear to me. If you need to work on the Foot Pedal I'd just buy a new one on eBay.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

The cord to my footpedal only works in specific positions. Can I get just a new cord or do I need an entire new pedal?


you should be able to fix it yourself. Make sure the machine is unplugged from the wall socket. With the foot peddle upside down on a flat surfice, using a flat head screw driver, try prying open the foot peddle. Once open inspect the wires, one might be loose or disconnected and hardly touching the leads. Secure them if they are loose or reconnect them if unconnected. Close the foot peddle, plug in machine and try the foot peddle.

I hope this helps and saves you money on buying a new one.

What is a walkimg foot machine


A walking foot is a foot with feed dogs, or a similar fabric moving mechanism. This is useful when there are many layers of fabric or slick fabric. Then the top layer of fabric can be made to travel at the same rate as the lowest layer (the feed dogs) or an slightly different rate. Then the fabric layers will stay even for the entire length of the seam.

A walking foot sewing machine has this feature built in. Thus you don't need to adjust extra hardware to keep your fabric aligned. (On some, specific feet are needed to use the feature. However, it is easier to adjust than the separate walking foot that I have for my older Singer sewing machine.)

I hope this helps.

Hello. I hope u can help me. I cannot get my stitching tight? If I pull the thread it comes right out. Thanks Jodie


You need to backstitch over the beginning and end of your stitching, Jodie. When you start out, manually turn the wheel to put the needle into the fabric. Push the foot pedal to stitch forward a little. Now, reverse over those stitches to nearly where you started stitching. Use the foot pedal to go forward again, stitch to where you want to end. Reverse again, just a 1/4 inch or so. Then take the fabric out and cut your stitching.

This backstitching keeps your thread from pulling straight out. You should always use it with straight stitches and general zigzag stitches. Don't use it with decorative or embroidery stitches, though, as it mars the appearance of them. But if you're doing any type of topstitching that uses straight stitches, backstitch in the area that will be in the seam allowance, ever so slightly, or your top stitching will pull out, too.

Hope that helps!

Nx400 error message F04?


I had the problem with the error code F04 and found out that it is your foot pedal for the machine. Unplug it and it should start right up as ours did.You will need to fix or buy a new foot pedal. When they repair and or clean your machine they don't use your foot pedal but they use their own so they will miss the broken foot pedal.

I hope this helps you.

The foot control is not working


well particular on electrical problem foot control is a switch of motor that deliver speed varies on how you press the foot pedal it consist of circular thick plate carbon the old model and the new one electronically control of power ic,It depend on how this pedal was contro.Anyway besure the power is off or unplug the machine; this control was been connected in series connection to the motor which you can test if your foot pedal control is defective. Disconnect the line wire holding foot pedal from the terminal inside motor assembly.If your not qualified electrician don.t do this.Connect the two terminal wire that inside the machine where the motor mounted.This connection is supplying your motor in full speed,Declucth your machine from the handwheel so that the motor run only.Plug the machine and switcn but you must jug only if the motor run in couple second of course without the foot control this was disconnected already.So your foot control is defective vice versa if motor does not run without foot control motor is busted.
how to fix if foot contol is defective, in carbon type you must replcace the circular thick carbon.On Electronic control check the IC if this open or some capacitor and resistor are open,Replaced any pars that had been short circuited.If the motor is defective replaced the carbon brush mounted at two side of motor case,There is an opening port.The carbon brush has spring holding push this carbon brush to the brush armature of rotor.

Your foot pedal plug is loose or possibly unplugged. You could also have a piece of fabric or thread that may be caught under the plate or around the bobbin. Remove all lint and oil the machine making sure the foot pedal plug is tightly in the machine.
