    HELP!! I took the foot pedal of my FW apart because

    It was squeaking and getting hard to push. Thought I would open it up and oil what I can.

    Now it won't work. What do I need to do to get it working again?

    ***UPDATED*** I got it working

    Just for the record, when I take a Singer foot controller apart I use a tiny bit of grease on the moving parts and the button if so equipped. Makes a big difference.

    In the future, when you take something apart, grab your camera and take pics along the way..it is a big help when putting things back together again!

    Excellent suggestion Donna, it's what I do too.
    Anything complex (I do it for car repair too), the phone camera is one of the best inventions ever for home repairs. You can then relax. Especially useful for wiring.
    My Singers: 12k (1883), VS2 Painted Red and Cream Roses and Daisies (1891), VS2 Victorian (1891), Improved Family (or 15-1, 1886), 15k (1917), 27 Tiffany (1900), 96k41 (1947), 96k41 (1949), 201k (1953), 206k11 (1950), 222k (1959), 306k, 320k2(1959), 411g
    Others: Empisal (1960s), Bernina Record 530-2, Pfaff 60, Pfaff 260, Lemair (1960s)
