Question about Singer CG754 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Janome Harmony footpedal doesn't respond when pressed.

However, when I walk away from it sometimes it will start sewing on it's own.

    Uh oh, looks like I'm gonna call Ghostbusters! I opened up the footpedal per your suggestion-because it made perfect sense. However, best that I can see, everything is in perfect order. Not at all a complicated set there so I don't think I missed anything.

    and it gets curiouser and curiouser...?

It sounds like you have a wire off inside the footpedal. If it won't work when you press it but, it will start on it's own, the wire is bouncing around inside the foot pedal box. It should either clip onto or be held in place by a screw. Other than this, it could be a broken wire, most likely where the wire comes out of the foot pedal, but this probably isn't the problem or, you need to call Ghost Busters.

    The only other thing it could be, related to the foot fedal would be if BOTH wires are broken and they short together. Put it back together and then wearing a glove or oven mitt to prevent a possible electrical shock, move the whole unit around. Make sure to move the cord in all directions. If the machine starts, all you need to do is shorten the cord where it's broken.

Singer sewing machine beeps and wont repond to commands.

Sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere in the bobbin area that needs cleaning as this is normally what happens when it gets jammed. Reverse sewing can sometimes cause jams. Remove bobbin area and reassemble.
