My machine has power, but foot pedal only makes needle go slowly

I have a necchi sewing machine, and it has full power to it, but when i push the foot pedal to go, the needle only goes up and down really, really slow. if you pump the foot pedal, it will keep going. is it my foot pedal? I have checked and cleaned the bobbin area and everything else is fine.

    I have a Pfaff 1029 tiptronic sewing machine and the foot control has lost its sensitivity. It either goes on full when you push it right down or not at all. Are there parts I can get to fix it? - Bruce

Some options to consider are the machine may have a bind. See if you can easily turn it by hand. If it turns easily I would check the foot control. I test them with a jumper wire across the contacts on my test panel. This should make your machine run full speed when you by pass the foot control. The other option is a faulty motor. I would not start replacing parts until I confirmed the bad one.

Sounds like your foot control is faulty.

Most sewing machines can use a double needle, the one with the single mounting shank and it turns into two needles.
MAKE sure you have Zig Zag needle plate installed to accomodate the double needle.
Turn hand wheel slowly to test then use thread and fabric and turn flywheel by hand to test sew.

try changing the needle--make sure it's the right type for the fabric being sewed
try rethreading the machine make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the power cord and the foot pedal are securely plugged into the machine
clean under the needle plate for lint and also in the bobbin area
also make sure the bobbin winder spindle is not pushed over to
wind a bobbin
if these suggestions don't help then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked..

The needle does not move when the foot pedal is used.


Make sure that you pushed the bobbin winder all the way to the left.

I have a necchi model number 537fa. the light comes on but the pedal and motor isnt running. you can manuely move the needle up and down, but the machine isnt running. could it be a belt?


If it is a belt problem, you should be able to hear the motor running. If you cant hear the motor running then it has to be the foot control or cord or possibly the motor.

It seems that the needle is not coordinated with the bobbin because there is no stitch.


It is possible that the needle is not installed correctly - this is usually with the flat side facing the back of the machine.

Always thread the top thread with the presser foot up.

Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and (by hand and not with the power pedal) turn the handwheel to lower and raise the bobbin thread.

Take both thread tails under the presser foot and toward the back of the machine before you begin to sew.

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!


There is no suppressor in the foot control of a 425. Only the control unit, which may need to be replaced. If the machine accelerates to full speed, it may have a problem with the "stop right" board which tells the machine whether to stop with the needle up.
You could have several problems, so go see a qualified Husqvarna repairman. You may contact Husqvarna customer service to locate the best one in your area.
