Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

unplug the sewing machine then unplug the foot controller and plug it back in then plug the machine back in if it still fails to work the controller has failed and needs to be replaced, you get replacements fairly cheap on ebay I have linked them below, the part number for the foot controller for that machine is KD-1902.
