Machine foot will not work

My machine foot will not work at all . The machine turns on but when you press the foot nothing happens. Anyone know where to get a foot for the 2040 that will not cost me an arm or leg. Thanks

    I have the same problem. The foot control has been a bit iffy for a while now it's stopped working altogether. I sourced a new foot control but the price quoted is £96!!! I will try taking it apart and see what happens.

    Same problem. The machine itself turns on, but the foot control doesn't do anything. Is it definitely the foot control or maybe something inside the machine wiring???

I took a foot control apart and couldn't put it back together again. Get a new one and save the trouble.

Have you taken the foot control apart yet? What have you got to lose. Possibly something came loose that you can put back in place? There are small carbon contacts that may be put back in place. Just remember to put it back togeather the same way you took it apart. Or keep an eye on eBay and ask questions. Mostlikely a generic footcontrol will work. Good luck. Rick

Pfaff tiptronic 2040 My bobbin thread isnt catching and now is making a noise


Sounds like your bobbin isn't locked into place. Is the latch on the bobbin worn that you can see? Is the shaft worn that the bobbin locks onto? I'll search for a manual but this is where I would start looking. Good luck

Foot control on my Juki 2010 sewing machine is not working, as if there's no power reaching it at all. There is power to my machine as indicated by light coming on when main power switch turned on.


Pam, Could be a bad/broken wire, may be repairable, you should take your pedal in to be tested, if diagnosed to be bad you may have to order a new replacement pedal. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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.

Sewing machine does not sew. Finished sewing something, turned it off, then turned it on a few hours later and it will not work. Light is on but nothing happens when the foot pedal is pressed. Took apart...


Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for their advice, you do not want to void your warranty with not going to an authorized repair service if it comes to that. Good luck

White w2500 serger - nothing happens when foot pedal pressed


Sounds like it could be wiring - probably a job for a mechanic

Could be a couple of things:
  1. Foot control is bad - take foot control to your local Pfaff dealer to try on one of their machines. If their machine won't run either, it's the foot control and you can look into repair/replacement.
  2. Machine has a short or some type or computer board problem - take machine to local Pfaff dealer and try with one of their known working foot controls. If the machine still doesn't work, your dealer will need to diagnose what is wrong.
Hope this helps.

Happy stitching,
