Machine cannot get electric power from foot power

If you can, test your machine using a different foot control (perhaps a sewing machine repair shop can help with that). Testing will at least tell you if the machine or the foot control is faulty.

Fast sewing on its on without pedal

Hello Tammy.

There is a mal-function in either the sewing machine or the foot control, or the junction. It would be good to find out which one is faulty. If the power and foot control leads are joined, there is no easy way to distinguish the location of the problem.

If your foot control and power leads are separate, disconnect the foot control and check if machine continues to sew by itself. If yes, the problem is with the machine. If no, the foot control is either stuck or malfunctioning. In either case it is best to take it to your local qualified technician.

Foot pedal doesn't work

well if the foot pedal isn't working, you can either replace it with a new one or take the machine to a sewing machine repair shop & let them check the foot pedal & see if it's fixable

How can i make the machine sew slower

The foot pedal is usually a controller. The harder you press it, the faster it will sew. Try just barely pressing on it. There is a reostat in the ciruit. It should go slower if you press the pedal lightly.

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.

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.
