Re: the footpedal in my 1209 PFAFF gets hot when I sew.
If your machine is turning easily the following applies. This is a carbon pile foot control (Not Electronic) and when in use for an extended period of time(like doing embroidery,piecing quilts) the foot controller will get hot. There's nothing you can do about this except wear shoes. If your machine is not turning freely, then if needs to be seen by a technician to find out why. sewman7

if you've had the machine serviced several times and it come back with the same problem then the machine wasn't fixed. if you can explain more about the sews intermittantly,, I'll try to help you with the problem.
This indicates some sort of drive issue; your machine may have a belt that is worn or a bit stretched inside it connecting the flywheel to the engine.
But as a first check, does your machine have a bobbin winding clutch that you disenage by turning an inner knob on the flywheel? If yes, then just check that the clutch is fully engaged as this could also cause the drive loss.
Failing that, if your machine has not had a professionaly service in the past 2 years then probably worth taking it for one now and the mechanic can check out the drive components and adjust/replace.
The circuit board has a very small fuse that could have blown. Your dealer will need to look at it. The older Pfaff computerized models like the 1471, 1473 and 1475 had a small fuse on the circuit board that could be replaced for considerably less than replacing the entire circuit board but I'm not sure if this is the case with the 7550.
You machine has a screw that fits the end of the shaft and the head pof the screw has broken. You can buy a new screw from a sewing machine dealer but if the whole assembly has come off you may need to take it to a dealer to have it reassembled properly. There is a spring inside which is very difficult to install. sewman7
