    I have the same problem with my Husqvarna Viking 940. When I plug it in I get the light and computer but when I push the foot pedal the machine won't go. It makes a slight sound at the beginning.

Your foot pedal plug is loose or possibly unplugged. You could also have a piece of fabric or thread that may be caught under the plate or around the bobbin. Remove all lint and oil the machine making sure the foot pedal plug is tightly in the machine.

My foot pedal won't stop the machine from running when I release it.


I just fixed a Bernina foot pedal with this problem. There is a metal piece that presses down on a small switch when the pedal is released. The switch wasn't being pressed down hard enough to completely disconnect the power. As a result the machine kept slowly sewing when the pedal was released. I bent the metal piece down slightly with needle nose pliers so the switch would be fully pressed when the pedal is released. The hardest part was opening the foot pedal because there were no visible screws. I used a flathead screwdriver to pry the base off the foot pedal at the pivot points.

When pressing foot pedal machine responds very slowly when the pedal is pressed all the way down


Have you checked the pedal for fluff or anything that might be stuck in the pedal. Are you using it on a thick carpet? Try putting it on a board and using your hand to test it

My daughter's brand new, right out of the box Janome 2212 machine is not working. The foot pedal is not engaging the motor so the needle doesn't move up and down. The wheel is pushed in as it


Sorry, but gotta ask is it plugged in and turned on? Check before you answer. (I ask this because it happened to me, set up, ready to go, and no power. After an hour and the machine was in pieces, My son asked if i plugged it in and I snapped "YES, DUH" not seeing him twirling he plug in his hand...he informed me that you must be 10% smarter than anything you operate or eat....at which point he was happy to inform me, the machine was 11% smarter. If it is plugged in and turned on, is the plug to the foot pedal plugged all the way in? Is the machine on? If you get zero reaction, no movement or sound of any kind, the foot pedal my be faulty, it can happen. Take it back to the dealer and they should replace the entire machine or the foot pedal. Good luck and happy sewing.

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.

Designer 1 foot pedal won't work


Have you tried using another Designer 1 foot control? It is more likely that the problem is a loose connection at the machine. Do not cut anything apart on the foot control unless you are certain that is where the problem lies.Take the machine in to an authorized dealer and have them test it for you. Find out EXACTLY what is not working. No need to buy a foot control and find out that the connectors on the machine are not properly attached.

I have a Singer Sewing Machine #9444. There is no electrical getting to my machine since the light doesn't work and the foot pedal doesn't work after I turn on the machine


Try replacing the light bulb or rerouting the wire so it won't be affected by the light bulb or the foot pedle. Becarefull though because if you rerout the the wireing in the foot pedle you're taking away the off/on swich so it'll stay on. You may want to open up the foot pedle and see if there is anything loose, not conected or broken. The pedal is used as an on/off swich so it may just be stuck in the off position and not making contact when you press down on it so it won't turn on.
If you can't fined a blulb for it by the way you can disconect the socket where you screw it in and install a new one. Make sure the new one will fit in the same hole though. Then it should be easy finding a bulb for it. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS DISCONECTED BEFOR YOU DO ANY OF THESE THINGS. Good luck!
