Foot Pedal Not Working on My Singer Sewing Machine?

My foot pedal isn't working on my sewing machine. It's a Singer Stylist 7258. I looked at the wire and inside the foot pedal and everything looks good. The start/stop function is now the only way my machine sews. Otherwise my sewing machine functions normally. It doesn't show any error code. My Stylist is five years old. Is it a fuse? How do I fix it? Is it worth paying for repairs or does it make more cost sense to buy a new one? I need the variable speed that a foot pedal offers. Thanks for your help!

It does sound like there is an issue with the connection of the foot pedal and the pedal itself on the machine. I think it is a good idea to just order a new foot pedal and put this in. First check to see if anyone you know has a machine that the foot pedal matches yours that you can borrow and test to see if it works. I have several sewing machine and the connection of the foot pedal on each machine is different so it makes it harder to test this to make sure what is really wrong. I would try and test this with another machine first before ordering a new one. These sewing machine here in my area are quite expensive to buy a new one and it is a lot cheaper to repair them here than buy a new one.

Perhaps you could ask your question on one of the sewing machine forums as they have qualified people with knowledge about this machine and they will know what questions to ask to get to the root of your problem.


Here is one comment you might look into before buying a new foot pedal.

"There are two separate cords on this machine. A power cord and a pedal cord. If you put the power cord in and switch the machine on, and then remove the pedal cord it should give you a beeping sound, which shows you the connection does work."

All of these forums are good so take your pick. You will have to join but you may need more advice in the future.

This could be wiring failure, bad drive motor will prevent the sewing machine motor from running. Make sure all wires are connected, repair any broken wires!
