Question about Singer 3116 Simple
The presser foot is actually the lever and foot that holds the fabric down around the needle, working in conjunction with the feeddogs (from below) to advance the fabric forward as it is stitching, you may well have troubles with the Foot Control.
It may also be a fuse........does the light come on, is it blown....was there a power surge when the machine was plugged in (even if not switched on)
There are many things it could be, but........
Basics first, ensure the machine is plugged in properly and switched on.......to be certain the socket outlet is OK, try it with a lamp or something you know works in a different socket.
If it looks like the foot control does have troubles and all the power, switches & etc are fine otherwise, I suggest you contact your local Singer dealer and ask about replacement or inspection........this is mains power we are dealing with........you also may know a qualified friend etc to will be competent to check the device, great, ........just beware of playing with things you do not have adequate knowledge of yourself, especially when there may be lethal consequences if you get it wrong.
