Question about White Sewing 1740 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Hello When the main power switch is turned on,

Hello When the main power switch is turned on, the sewing machine light goes on but when the foot switch is depressed, the machine does not operate. I tested the foot switch and it goes from open to continuity when the foot switch is depressed. When depressing the foot switch I can hear no sound of a motor running. I have the instruction book for this machine but it contains no repair or troubleshooting information. Thanks!

Do you have a stitch pattern selected and a length chosen? Otherwise it does not know what you want to do. Sometimes companies neglect to tell you that little fact. Also, how about your bobbin winding shaft, is it pushed all the way to the left? Other than that I am baffled. Good luck.

Sewing machine won't run.


1. Make sure the machine isn't set for bobbin rewind. Also, try to move the control hookup around slightly to ensure it is making a good connection.
2. Is it possible the power switch looks like it is on but isn't because of the surrounding light? Check this and the outlet you are using.
3. Is the sewing machine light on? A puppy biting in the wire could have caused a short so a pro will have to check the guts of the machine.

Foot control on my Juki 2010 sewing machine is not working, as if there's no power reaching it at all. There is power to my machine as indicated by light coming on when main power switch turned on.


Pam, Could be a bad/broken wire, may be repairable, you should take your pedal in to be tested, if diagnosed to be bad you may have to order a new replacement pedal. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a singer curvy 8763, the foot control quit working, machine will not work and all of the lights are blinking???


Reset main power. perhaps power off by unplugging. If that won't work then find the main operating buttons on the right side and push each one.
You should have a manual on this fairly new machine that will help you.

How to set up


  • Remove your Janome sewing machine from the box, placing the main machine on a hard surface appropriate for sewing and the accessories and smaller items to the side. Unwrap all of the wrapped items. Remove the tape used to protect the machine during shipment. Set aside the power cord and foot pedal.

  • 2

    Attach the power cord to the machine. The power cord plug-in area is located on the lower right side of all Janome sewing machines and has a series of metal prongs and a power switch. Fit the female end of the power cord onto the metal prongs and push it gently until it no longer moves.

  • 3

    Attach the foot pedal to the machine. The foot pedal plug-in is also located on the lower right side of all Janome machines, right next to the power cord plug-in. Press the foot pedal plug-in into place gently until it no longer moves.

  • 4

    Turn the power switch on. The power switch is located in the same area as the foot pedal and power cord plug-ins and is a rectangular black switch. Press this button. The sewing machine light will turn on.

  • 5

    Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, located on the upper right top side of the sewing machine. Place the thread so that the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise motion, with the thread coming off the back of the spool.

  • 6

    Insert a needle into your machine. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate size and type of needle. Turn the needle clamp screw, located above the needle area, toward you to loosen it. Turn the needle so that the flat part of the upper shaft area faces the rear and slide the shaft of the needle up and into the needle area. Turn the needle clamp screw away from you to tighten the needle and lock it into place.

  • 7

    Wind the bobbin and insert the bobbin into the bobbin case. This procedure may vary depending on the model of your Janome machine, so consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

  • 8

    Thread your machine according to the directions in your owner's manual. Like the bobbin, this procedure can vary widely depending on the model of your Janome machine.

  • 9

    Set your tension, located on the front of the machine, to halfway between three and four. The tension may be a dial or it may be computerized and located on the LCD screen, depending on your model. Consult your owner's manual to find out how to set the tension.

  • 10

    Place a piece of scrap fabric in the machine and sew a test seam before you start to work on a project to make sure all of your settings are correct.

I can't start to sew on my 830. The foot control is recognized(the start/stop button light goes off when I press the foot control), but does not make the presser foot come down. It worked 15 minutes ago...


If you lower the pressure foot before you press the foot control does it sew then? If so, then some how in your setting menu you auto pressure foot setting has gotten turned off.

I have a Juki MO-655. I just threaded the machine, plugged it in and when I turn it on the light comes on but the motor doesn't start when I press the foot control. I have all the doors on the machine...


I also have the Juki M)-655. Look at the power button; it should have 3 positions. First position turns the power switch Off, second position turns the power switch on and it will sew, third position turns on both the power switch and the sewing light. Several times I have thought I turned on the power switch to sew only to realize it was not in the second position. Hope this helps.

Some Bernina models have a three application switch.

Light, light and power pedal and just the power pedal.

Inside the machine, at the back of the tower is a circuit board. It could be the contact or wire is broken.

Presser foot lever


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. This could be accomplish by unplugging the SE-270D from the mains. After an extended period, plug back in and power on normally. In some variations, there would be a reset button/key/switch.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
