You want a new husband? I'd have murdered mine - he knows to stay out of the sewing room and especially don't touch my scissors. I even put a padlock on the handles of my fiskars shears once to keep them safe. LOL

But seriously, you'll need to order a new foot pedal from a dealer or agent for the manufacturer of your machine. You don't say what make and model.

But some websites to try if you are in USA on 110V would be or the website of your machine, ie if its a singer try

Firstly identify the make and model, there should be a serial number plate on the side of the machine beside the power inlet usually which should give you this info.

It doesn't have a foot pedal or a manual. trying to figure out how to use it

Um, you're not going to be able to use your machine if there is no foot pedal. You can search the internet for a manual by inputting Brand + Model + the word "Manual." Then find a dealer for your machine brand in your area to buy a foot control or locate one on the internet. Be sure to confirm that the foot control will work on your Brand and Model.

My brand new Singer 7463 will not sew, even though the lights, stitch settings, and everything else are completely fine.

The foot pedal is just a variable resistor to give you speed control of the motor
You say the machine is new so it will still be under warranty
have a service technician check it out
It could be a faulty control pedal or leads or motor

There is no power into the foot pedal. I have unplugged and replugged every connection. I HOPE I don't need to buy a new pedal -- all the fabric stores are now 10 miles away!!!

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.

Run away foot pedal.

I also have this problem with the pedal to my Janome Platinum 720. Took it to my dealer yesterday and the pedal is NOT under warranty and it costs $80 to replace. That is outrageous and I am trying to find another solution. They (Who??) are ripping us off. My machine is only year and half old and I only use it to take to classes. My Kenmore and Necchi machine pedals are still working after many many years of use.

Singer 2010 doesn't want to stop

I have a Singer Merritt 4530.  I don't know if the foot pedal works the same way on your model, but on mine it is held together not by screws or latches, but simply by white plastic rods that serve as hinges.  These rods have a hole drilled in their center, presumably so some special tool can be used to pull them out.  Lacking a special tool, I glued a nail into the hole, and once the glue dries you can pull the nail and pull the rod out with it.  The rod is about an inch long and held in place merely by friction - no glue or screw threads.  Once one rod is removed, you should be able to slide the pedal off of the rod on the other side, though that might have only worked because some of the plastic housing was cracked on mine.  If you don't want to take the time to test that, just glue a nail into both rods and pull them both out.
Once you get the pedal open, mine had a giant white cylinder that looks kind of like a battery or a fuse.  This thing was getting very hot the longer the pedal was left plugged in.  I read on many web sites that this object can cause overheating or short circuit the pedal so it's always sewing.  It's called a suppressor and can be safely thrown away.  I haven't found an explanation for precisely what it does or why it can be safely thrown away, but I theorize it's a surge suppressor and that most modern wiring isn't going to surge too much.  I got rid of it and the pedal still works and doesn't overheat.  It may be safest to plug the machine into a surge-protected power strip once the suppressor is gone - just my theory.
