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.
Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.
Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?
your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?
If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.
I get the same beeping when I forget to pull down the buttonhole lever
if you have the automatic buttonhole & the buttonhole foot that you have to put a button in,,check & see if there is a buttonhole lever that has to be pulled down, it will be a lever to the left of the needle bar
so nothing is moving at all either by pressing the pedal or turning the hand wheel? Can you hear the engine humming or is the light working okay?
If yes, then this could be a gear failure inside the machine and not something easily fixed. Is this a oldish machine that has either had a lot of work or been sitting for a while? Has it been serviced at all in the past?
My Bernina 334D failed and it was a nylon gear in the main drive area which I had replaced but the dealer wasn't keen to do it, they wanted to sell me a new one. However, I checked with Bernina themselves that the part was available and how much, then talked to a local repair guy and he did the job for me. About 1/3 the cost of a new one though.
I'd suggest you take it to a Singer dealer and ask for a quote and find out if this is what has happened to your machine.
