There could be something wrong with the motor or the power
cord or even the foot pedal, or the machine could have a internal
parts problem,, it would be a good idea to have the
machine check to see what is wrong.

  • there could be a part inside the machine that has broken or gotten
    damaged. or it could be the motor or power cord or foot pedal
    that is the problem, taking the machine in for a check up would
    tell you for sure what's wrong.

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: start/stop button problem will the machine run on its own

You have to unplug the power cord to the the foot pedal. The manual doesn't include this. And good stinkin luck with Sears or Kenmore customer service! Just pull the cord out of the machine and the start/stop button will work. Try it on a slower setting at first though. Also, if you need additional presser feet, Singer, Brother, Janome, and possibly other brands will usually work as long as they are the snap on type. I really do like my machine, good luck with yours!

I was given a brother cs-8150. The manual says it will operate without foot feed. I tried to use auto sew and machine tells me to change speed controller mode to off. Where do I do that.


Not able to find any online instructions for your machine, so here goes. There may be some confusion as to what foot feed means.

I believe foot feed refers to the feed dogs. When you disable the feed dogs (drop them), then you must manipulate the fabric manually--used mostly for darning or free motion quilting. In essence the feed dogs are no longer moving the fabric for you. Instead, you manually move the fabric and control the speed at which it stitches with your foot control. Perhaps that is why you need to turn off the speed control because you will determine the speed with your foot.

Foot control refers to the foot pedal that you use to control the speed that the machine sews (much like the gas pedal in your car). Some machines have the ability to sew without the use of a foot control unit. To do so, there is usually a button or lever somewhere to start and stop the machine. When activated, the machine will continue to stitch until you stop it.

Hopefully this will help you find a resolution.

I have a Pfaff 2140 sewing machine and when I depressed the foot control it did not sew, the lights work on the machine and I can manually sew a few stitches by turning the wheel. Is it a foot problem


Sounds like a foot control problem to me if the needle can still move up and down. Is it firmly pushed into the plug or is there something stuck under it? Give it a good clean and try pushing it down with your hand to see that it goes all the way. If it does and still does not activate the machine, it may need replacing

Cant get machine to embroider


there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.

I am trying to make a buttonhole using the buttonhole foot and everytime i go to sew the machine beeps and will not let me sew?


if you have a automatic buttonhole , then you should have a buttonhole lever that you have to pull down, before you start to do the buttonhole,, my machine will not let me do a buttonhole unless I pull down the buttonhole lever

Hello When the main power switch is turned on,


Do you have a stitch pattern selected and a length chosen? Otherwise it does not know what you want to do. Sometimes companies neglect to tell you that little fact. Also, how about your bobbin winding shaft, is it pushed all the way to the left? Other than that I am baffled. Good luck.

The pressure foot will not run the machine you have to push very hard the the machine goes very fast.


meed a little more info, make sure the pressure foot is in the down position,

what do you mean you have to push very hard, are you pushing on the fabric to fo under the needle,

if the presure foot is down, check the manual on how to adjust the pressure it may be to tight and need to loosen it

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.
