I had a similar problem and called 1 800 4Singer. The BH lever(next to the needle) had fallen. I pushed it up and everything worked fine again. It seems if it's down the least, the machine won't work. Hope this helps.

Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.
If the machine won't work with two pedals that are good then the problem isn't the foot pedal. Does the light turn on? If this is functional then you know there is "electricity" attached to it. Since both pedals aren't functional you will have to have the motor and connecting cord (inside machine) to see which is the problem. By the way; if the problem is the cord inside the machine you may not want to plug it in. You stand a chance of getting shocked. Have it checked for safety.
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.
make sure the foot pedal cord is pushed in correctly
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
also clean the bobbin are for lint or loose threads
Sounds like the foot petal needs
to be taken apart and cleaned.
Make sure everything is unplugged.
Use WD-40 on everything except
any electrical parts, it has chemical
agents in it that break down the plastic
after a long period of time.
after i looked over the machines thred routing i found a pice of thred jamed in under the top clear plastic panel i took thihs panel off and removed the thred ,cleaned in there put it back togather and it now works fine just what i found hope it works for others
