I picked up a kenmore 385.17928090 today. It looks and sounds good but didn't come with a pedal, and I didn't look closely at the power connector to notice it was a 3 prong, I had it in my head it was a figure 8 connector and I could steal the one of my wife's brother.
Anyway, I see the cord only has two wires on the wall outlet end, but I suspect it is only 2 wires all the way to the machine end, particularly since you can buy a straight-up power cord [no pedal]. From looking on YouTube it seems as though all the pedals are indeed 2 wire pedals, and I can't imagine kenmore/Sears would buck the trend here.
So, my question is this, what is the least expensive method of putting a foot pedal on there? Can I get a simple $12 kenmore cable and a surplus pedal and wire it up? anybody know of a wiring diagram that might show this? Bear in mind I am a HAM and know my way around a soldering iron and butt connectors plus I love a challenge.
Ps, if anyone has a link to a manual I would appreciate it, I haven't gone hunting for one yet.
