    Maybe go back and get the model #. Then you can do a google on that model # and see what pops up.

    Linda, Don't know that machine, but I did have a Kenmore that was 20 years old before anything went wrong and then it was the power pedal that went bad. I was unable to buy replacement parts, was told that after that age, they no longer carry replacements, and nothing else would fit. So best check it out first. Get the serial or model number and call Sears service department.

    Linda, try this site. I purchased a cord without the foot for an older Pfaff so I could convert my domestic into a 'longarm'. I didn't want to destroy my foot pedal/cord that I had and this is the only place that was reasonable and had just the cord part.

    If you have the model number, you can also check eBay for parts -- including "completed listings". I found a foot pedal for an old Bernina that I bought from a thrift shop.

    I finally got the model # and called Sears, the foot pedal/cord was $19.99 and presser foot 7.99/ so about $40.00 for the machine total. Do I really need another machine, would have to sneak it in the house LOL, overloaded now but a good deal. Figures to be about 1/2 cost but doesn't have all the trimmings a new one would
