wrong. This requires a series of tests and checks.
Is the electric plug plugged into the house plug? Is the
power cord and my sewing machine pedal cord plugged firmly into

turned on? Is my sewing machine light on? When I

times. Hold it down for a few seconds. If I still
hear nothing and the sewing machine is motionless, it is my
