Question about Sewing Machines
I turned off the light on the Huskylock 435 overlocker and took my sewing into another room. It will still on at the switch but this is what I have done a hundred times. When I walked back in the room the overlocker was spewing out overlocked threads, it had suddenly come to 'life' at some stage while I was out of the room. Nothing was sitting on the peddle. Tryed putting the cord in two different power points and turing on the machine and it automatically stared overlocking on the fastest speed. The only way to stop the machine is to turn the switch off.
There is a supressor, probably inside the case of the foot control, less likely in the body of the machine, that has burned out.......you may notice an acrid plastic/burnt odour near the source....sniff at the pedal or the rear of the machine to try to ident the location.
It is not actually necessary for the operation of the machine, it only stops interference if sewing while someone else is watching or listening to TV and Radio.
If you do not feel confident to undo, locate and remove this component I strongly suggest a quick trip to the repair shop (phone first, say the supressor is blown and ask for a quote)
You could also have a general service at the same time if it has been a while and is within your budget.
