SOURCE: singer 2010 doesn't want to stop

I have a Singer Merritt 4530.  I don't know if the foot pedal works the same way on your model, but on mine it is held together not by screws or latches, but simply by white plastic rods that serve as hinges.  These rods have a hole drilled in their center, presumably so some special tool can be used to pull them out.  Lacking a special tool, I glued a nail into the hole, and once the glue dries you can pull the nail and pull the rod out with it.  The rod is about an inch long and held in place merely by friction - no glue or screw threads.  Once one rod is removed, you should be able to slide the pedal off of the rod on the other side, though that might have only worked because some of the plastic housing was cracked on mine.  If you don't want to take the time to test that, just glue a nail into both rods and pull them both out.
Once you get the pedal open, mine had a giant white cylinder that looks kind of like a battery or a fuse.  This thing was getting very hot the longer the pedal was left plugged in.  I read on many web sites that this object can cause overheating or short circuit the pedal so it's always sewing.  It's called a suppressor and can be safely thrown away.  I haven't found an explanation for precisely what it does or why it can be safely thrown away, but I theorize it's a surge suppressor and that most modern wiring isn't going to surge too much.  I got rid of it and the pedal still works and doesn't overheat.  It may be safest to plug the machine into a surge-protected power strip once the suppressor is gone - just my theory.

SOURCE: White 1600 SpeedyLock. Power, but foot pedal

When stepping on the foot control, does the motor hum or anything? Or is dead silent? If it sounds like it's trying to do something, the serger probably needs to be serviced. If it's silent, you probably need a new foot control.

SOURCE: Singer Model 6212c only sews in reverse...

there's probably nothing wrong with your machine.

check and see if your stitch length setting is set to Stretch instead of somewhere between 2 and 3.

If it's in the stretch zone (below 0), it can sometimes sew backwards unexpectedly depending on what stitch you have selected.

make sure you have selected a straight stitch, and then select the highest stitch width and a stitch length of somewhere between 2 and 3.

it will most likely work fine.

How to put singer model 6233 foot pedal back together


Hello,
These machine s are mechanical wonders, always have your machine serviced by trained technician. End user servicing is not recommended, and if needed, parts will not be available to end users so take your machine in for service, repair and adjustments to sew perfectly. A new foot pedal can often be purchased on Ebay or Amazon.com just make sure it's made for your machine make and model when making this purchase.
Cheers,

When I push down on the foot pedal it will slow down and speed up without me changing the pressure I'm putting on the pedal.


Hello Marcia
Your foot pedal is either faulty of the rheostat in it needs cleaning. If you are comfortable taking it apart, you will find a contact that slides on a wire coil. Clean it with 3 in 1 oil and then put it back together.

Or you can replace it
Direct from a Singer warranty centre
http://www.singerco.com/support/us-warranty-centers

Or from a Sewing machines spares outlet.

Where can I buy a replacement foot controller and power cord for my singer confidence 7463?


Years ago, my second Singer [760] foot control "went", out of warranty. Singer weren't very good with parts for older models, and the sewing machine guy had to find another foot control and I had to do a lot of rewiring.

Anyway, if you go Online and look for your local Singer stockist, the part number should be there.

Unplug your machine immediately! Unplug the foot pedal and examine the wires carefully. Take the bottom off the pedal and look inside... you've had a short of some sort. Probably inside the pedal.

(I rewired one wrong once... it turned it into a heater) Old machine replacement parts are available online if you don't have the mechanical ability or are wary of attempting this.

Sewing machine does not sew. Finished sewing something, turned it off, then turned it on a few hours later and it will not work. Light is on but nothing happens when the foot pedal is pressed. Took apart...


Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for their advice, you do not want to void your warranty with not going to an authorized repair service if it comes to that. Good luck

There is no power into the foot pedal. I have unplugged and replugged every connection. I HOPE I don't need to buy a new pedal -- all the fabric stores are now 10 miles away!!!


Take your foot pedal apart and check for loose wires.
I once snapped up a Singer 301 for 20 bucks because of a broken wire in the foot pefal.

Wiring a foot control pedal for Singer Slant-o-Matic 401G sewing machine, banana socket. The machines listed are newer models and my 401 is not listed.


Faboulous machine the 401 and the best machine ever made, in the UK if I remember the two red wires go to the right hand pin and thw two blacks go to each terminal, when you rewire the plug which is fidly undo the stop motion, when you plug the machine in if it runs on without touching the foot control change the two black wires over, to rewire the foot control there are only two wires, you can't go wrong.
