It is probably the foot pedal. There should be a plate that gives the model # and Serial #. You can call Singer at 1-800-4singer and order or go on their site and find it by serial #. There are also sites
like www.sewingpartsonline.com and see how much a universal foot pedal is and go from there. Usually, they are about $30.

The needle is not going up and down, the fabric is not feeding thru. The foot pedal is not working at all. How do I fix this?


Is it plugged in? (The foot pedal) Your machine may have power but in most setups the foot pedal is the master controller; since it controls motor speed everything mechanical is affected by whether it works or not.

What might cause my sewing machine to not respond when the foot pedal is depressed?


make sure the plug for the foot pedal is connected securely to the machine.
could be the plug in the machine has a problem even tho the foot petal is plugged in
could be the foot petal has gone out and needs to be checked.

Needle is not moving


Of course I have to guess here--not seeing the machine, but it appears that your motor is working fine. That would leave two possibilities, I think. The first is a defective foot pedal. The second is, when you push the bobbin winder, it engages a clutch that diverts power from the needle shaft to the winder. It is possible that the clutch is stuck. To find out, disengage the bobbin winder and press the foot pedal, and see if the bobbin winder spindle is still spinning.

Foot pedal not working


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.

Husqvarna model 183 foot control no power


anytime the machine does not respond like it's suppose to then it needs to be checked, the foot pedal could have gone bad, or the the sewing machine plug where the foot pedal goes may have gone out

Lights turn on but foot pedal stays dead. Needle


If you know someone who is savvy in the mysteries of electricity, ask them to test the foot pedal to see if it is working and the socket on the machine to see if it is receiving power.

If you need a new foot control pedal - check the Internet for best prices - you will need the machine's model number.

If you take the machine to a dealer for service, ask what it will cost before making the trip.

The bench rate for just looking at the machine may not be worth it.

Bernine 153 QE motor sometimes does not respond to foot pedal


If its not the footcontrol (which it probably is) it is most likely the circuitboard acting up. Needs a tech.
