Did you ever get your sewing machine to speed back up...mine does the same thing Singer Quantaum 5430, runs great for about one minute and then so slow I can't run it any longer

SOURCE: My machins slows to a stop
We had the slow issue and it was the foot pedal. But, rather than replace the pedal I disassembled it, cleaned it, then found a little adjustable pot (resistor). I used a tiny screwdriver to adjust the pot and the speed increased. I noticed that there is a slot in the bottom of the pedal housing that is for accessing the pot without disassembling the pedal. My wife sewed a dress after the repair and so far it is working as it used to.

SOURCE: I need the tension setting
Check the sewing machine thread from the spool to the sewing needle
to make sure the sewing machine thread routes are correct through all of
the machine's guides. Make all necessary corrections.
Now get a piece of scrap or test material about two feet in length. Place the material under the sewing needle the same way as in a normal sewing process.
The purpose of this first step is for allowing a few stitches to seat in the material only. Mainly just, sew approximately four to five stitches through the material. Repeating this step later will not be necessary.
Knowing what to look for before starting the second step will be important, so the sewing machine thread tension will reach proper adjustment. In addition, this prevents any damage to the machine or material.
In the second step below, look for, while sewing, if a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs as the material passes the sewing needle. When a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs, the machine tension is at proper adjustment. Do not tighten the machine's thread tension knob any further, to prevent any harm to the machine.
Now to begin the second step, turn the machine's tension adjustment knob, one quarter of a turn clockwise. This will tighten the sewing thread tension. Now sew approximately a dozen stitches through the material.
As the material passes the sewing needle, watch to see if the material has a slight noticeable pull to the left. No slight noticeable pull to the left suggests improper sewing thread tension. Turn the sewing machine tension adjustment knob one quarter of a turn clockwise again, to tighten the sewing thread tension, and then sew another dozen stitches.
Keep repeating the process of quarter turn increments clockwise with the sewing machine's tension adjustment knob. Then sewing a dozen stitches, until a slight noticeable pull to the left occurs as the material passes the sewing needle. Once the material does this, the sewing machine thread tension has reached proper adjustment.
1.- Look to see whether the thread loops appear on the fabric back side. If this is the case, the tension on your sewing machine is too loose.
2.- Check to see if your fabric is puckering on the front side when you sew. If this happens, then your tension is too tight.
3.- Adjust your needle thread tension with your machine threaded and your presser foot pedal down.
4.- Turn your thread tension dial as needed. If you increase the number on your tension thread dial, you will be increasing the tension on your sewing machine. If you are lowering the number on your tension thread dial, you will be decreasing the tension on your machine.
5.- Clean your thread tension with a small piece of paper or a toothpick. Slide the toothpick or paper between the discs to remove any tangles of thread.
This and other parts details could find in the Singer 5830 Parts Manual
Hope this helps.

it could be different things
have you checked to make sure the plug is correctly in the machine
one time I was sewing on my necchi electronic machine & it for some reason was going slow like you mentioned & so I started checking different thing & found the cord to the foot pedal was laying in side the foot pedal & it couldn't go any faster untill I moved the cord out of the way
it could also be the motor
& also the power cord & foot pedal
it's possible it needs to be serviced since it's been sitting up so long & since it's sewing at a snails pace
