SOURCE: Foot control for PFAFF won't work

These machines need to be seen by a technician who can disassemble the motors and replace the carbon brushes. You should have them serviced at the same time since it doesn't take that much longer to do everything.

SOURCE: presser foot lever

Try turning it off and disconnect the foot pedal (depends on the model).

Worst, the power surge damaged the sewing machines small computer and it will require service.

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: I cant get the machine to sew a buttonhole.

I am not familiar with your machine, but some buttonhole attachments require a lever be lowered and inserted into a tab.

Review your manual to see if a step was overlooked.

Machine going too fast


The foot pedal is faulty, the electronic voltage control is not working and only when the contacts are connected physically does the machine receive any power (maximum) It depends on your type of foot pedal whether or not it is repairable

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?

How do I change the presser foot on an elna mini sewing machine?


I dodn't know your model really well but it will be one of the following:
a clip on foot that you just pull down on to remove,
a clip on foot with a button at the back of the pressure foot holder - press the button to release the foot
a clip on foot with a little lever at the back of the pressure foot holder - lift the lever to release the foot
If it is a clip on foot, then you just need to raise the pressure foot lever, put your fingers onto the pressure foot and press downwards, it should unclip.

To put one on, place the pressure foot onto the needle plate under the pressure foot bar and lower the pressure foot bar down onto the foot, lining up the base of the foot holder with the little bar on the foot, it should click into place.

When pressing the foot control the machine won't run, it shows the presser foot blinking on the screen even when the presser foot lever is down.


check the connections, if they are good, your foot pedal has a short in it, so its not completing the circuit when depressed

HELP PLS. pfaff serger, hobbylock 788. it has been working fine. today i cant turn it on at all. what could be the problem?


Is one of the front covers open slightly? these will both have safety cutouts on them.

If not that, then could be foot control and cord that has a fault. Are you getting power to the light on it? Can you hear the engine humming? If there is nothing, then start by testing the foot control and cord.

You can probably buy a replacement foot control on one of the sewing part sights such as www.sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com

Here's a link to the Google froogle search results, they are a little pricey though... You might find a cheaper one in your area by calling around and asking for a used one.

The foot control is not working


well particular on electrical problem foot control is a switch of motor that deliver speed varies on how you press the foot pedal it consist of circular thick plate carbon the old model and the new one electronically control of power ic,It depend on how this pedal was contro.Anyway besure the power is off or unplug the machine; this control was been connected in series connection to the motor which you can test if your foot pedal control is defective. Disconnect the line wire holding foot pedal from the terminal inside motor assembly.If your not qualified electrician don.t do this.Connect the two terminal wire that inside the machine where the motor mounted.This connection is supplying your motor in full speed,Declucth your machine from the handwheel so that the motor run only.Plug the machine and switcn but you must jug only if the motor run in couple second of course without the foot control this was disconnected already.So your foot control is defective vice versa if motor does not run without foot control motor is busted.
how to fix if foot contol is defective, in carbon type you must replcace the circular thick carbon.On Electronic control check the IC if this open or some capacitor and resistor are open,Replaced any pars that had been short circuited.If the motor is defective replaced the carbon brush mounted at two side of motor case,There is an opening port.The carbon brush has spring holding push this carbon brush to the brush armature of rotor.
