Question about White Sewing Sewing Machines
Your White appears to be a mechanical machine. The instructions below address a seized machine, however, if your White has not had a thorough clean and oil recently, it could be susceptible to seizing.
Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

You only need to replace the cord if it has been damaged. It will cost less if you just take the machine , cord and control to a local technician and have him just replace the foot control. Let him test it first. A generic foot control should cost less than $30.

I solved this problem by going to a post on FixYa dated 6/4/08 oor 09 by Timetoknit.
The post mentioned a free download of "White's" Manual that is out of print, at White's sister company "the Singer Sewing Company's" website: www.singerco.com It also gave the download steps. The download steps are on my Solution post.
I downloaded the manual and printed it on 7/30/09.
Thanks for being here.

Singer has the manuals for the White 1740 on their support site: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals .
The direct links are:
http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/712_white-1740-x.pdf and http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1105_white-1740-x.pdf . The two links seem to give identical files. Note you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the files.
I hope this helps.
