The foot pedal gets hot after a few minutes

It sounds as though the foot pedal is the problem. Maybe a shorted out wire in the actuator (rheostat). When your foot is off the pedal there should be no power running through it. If it has a short then it "thinks" the pedal is partially depressed to the slow position so runs at that speed. If the pedal can be removed/unplugged from the machine, do this and see if the machine stops running.

Broken foot pedal riccar 8850

Remove the assembly that holds the foot pedal by removing the three screws after you've removed the bottom plate and brush roll. This allows you to get the nozzle housing out of the way so you can rotate the assembly holding the foot pedal from the metal pivot. Remove the e clips from the shaft and pull the shaft out of the foot pedal (be sure to look closely at the spring and how the shaft are positioned so you can be sure to install them exactly the same way you took them off. It is not a hard job but can be confusing the first time. It's not an expensive fix to have done by your Riccar dealer.

Please try with out having your foot over the brake pedal and get back to us.

I have a bernina 800 over 30 years old and foot pedal stuck on on

Your foot pedal is nothing more than a variable resistance switch, (think dimmer switch) They do get gunked up from use and dust and stuff. Unplug your machine. remove the foot pedal from the machine too... flip it over and look for a build up of threads jammed between the top of the foot pedal and the body of the foot pedal. Remove them. You can also look for and unscrew the screws and open up the foot pedal. (avoid removing/unscrewing wires). See if there is rust, dust, fluff etc that is interfering with action and release of the pedal.

Spray some electronics cleaner in and around the foot pedal area and leave open to dry at least 2 hours. put it back together and give it a try.

If you are timid about attempting this kind of thing or think you may be called away in the middle of looking into your pedal's problem. Take pictures as you take it apart so when you put it back together you have a visual guide.

Good luck

How to fit a foot release pedal on a samsung su2931 vacuum cleaner

I have a Samsung SU2920. The pedal has broken. Spare is available on espares. To remove the broken pedal:
Turn the machine over and locate the foot pedal side near a rear wheel.
Operate the pedal to see how it is held in place by a moulded pin which is captured by two lugs on the underside of the body. Use a torch to get some light in there.

Insert a thin blade on either side to bend the plastic lugs slightly so that the moulded pin on the foot pedal can slide upwards without being held by the lugs. The pedal will not slide up easily. I used a hammer and a metal bar to tap it free.
Once the pedal is removed, the spare can be clicked into place from the top without tools.

I have a Kenmore sewing machine Model 158, 1792280. The foot pedal is not working well; I was sewing normally and when I finished, I removed my foot from the foot pedal but the machine continue sewing. I...

Buy a new foot pedal for it, probably one of the electrical components inside the foot has failed.

There are Kenmore footcontrols for sale on You could email them to check its right for your model if it isn't listed.

Obviously I'm assuming that you are in USA with 110 Voltage and that is what your machine is. If not and your country is 220V, you would need to source it from a reseller in your own country or another with the same voltage.

I have a white quilter's sewing machine, model 1740. I cannot get the foot pedal to work. It only sews if I push the start/stop button on front of machine. How do I get the foot pedal to work?

Hi, follow the instruction below to troubleshoot the foot pedal
  • Unplug the machine plug and wall plug on the sewing machine.
  • Check the power cord for cracks, burns, or faulty contacts as this could be a possible reason for the foot control not working.
  • Open the foot control by using a knife or flat surface tool, such as a flathead screwdriver, to pry open the corner of the foot control.
  • Check the wires to see if they are disconnected; this can happen if the foot control drops to the ground. To check wires, remove the circuit board using a flat knife. Inspect the wires inside the foot control. You will see some wires that are soldered together. Check to see if there are any broken wires, as this could be the problem. If the wire is broken, clean the area to remove any debris or dirt. Remove a small amount of the insulation before soldering. Solder wires together.
  • When you are done, reassemble the foot control and make sure it's working again.

Wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.
