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: Old model Bernina 830, running ok, then kept

There is a thing called a suppressor which is normally located in the foot control which has fused, you need to open the foot control and you should see a a small thing that looks liuke a fuse connected to the two terminals which you need to take out and discard because you don't need it any more, if you don't have on in the control then it will be on the motor which means you will have to take it in for repair.

SOURCE: We have a very old Necchi Model BU Mira, that is

The power wire (from the wall) connects to a block just under the motor where the on/off switch is. On my machine there is a brown block with the words Necchi italy on it. I unscrew two screw and there is a track were the power cord lays and leads bite in to the cord as the screws are retightened..... The blue wires from the transformer are on the "sewing machine side" of the transformer and power from the wall should not be attached there.

What would cause my Kenmore sewing machine's light to turn on but the motor seem to have no power?


The wiring for the older Kenmore is simple. The light switch completes the connection to the light. If the foot pedal has failed or connection loose where the wire attaches from the foot-pedal the motor will not run.

Also if the brushes in the motor are worn or failing to contact the motor internally the motor will not run.

With light on and pedal partially depressed attempt to activate motor to determine if brush connection are faulty. If the motor reacts at all the brushes will likely need to be replaced.

No success borrow a foot pedal from a friend or sewing center to determine if the pedal control is faulty.

Hope this helps?

Need the wire connecton diagram for connecting motor back onto bernina 810 after replacing carbon brushes. which pin on block does blk, grey, white from condenser go to


Have a look at this site. OK, it's in German but most of what you need will be here somewhere. The author is a bit repetitive and some of the links are redundant or duplicated but the info contained therein is valuable.

One of the problems in using a translate facility on that site is that parts of the text are images. I imagine this has been done to prevent whole chunks of the authors text from being ripped off too easily.

What to do when foot pedal just stopped working on old Bernina 830


There are a few problems possible. Assuming that there is not a mains (house) power problem, use the following logic to sort out the problem:
1. Do you have a light (assuming that the light bulb is good)? continue to #2.
2. With the machine unthreaded, the presser foot up, and the power cable plugs fully plugged in at the motor and foot control, depress the control to the run position.
Carefully bend and wiggle the cables at the plug locations one at a time. If the motor runs, the cable wires are damaged so you will replace the cable.
3. If available, try a (known good foot control) from another Bernina 830 of that exact vintage.
If the test foot control runs the machine, replace your foot control. Note: If the foot control is a type 213 for very old models, suggest that the control be replaced with a two wire electronic phase type control. (requires the foot control plug end to be cut off and rewired to the new phase controller). These electronic phase controls can be purchased from EBAY. Stay away from the Bernina type 213 control if possible. The type 213 controls have not been available for many years and it is highly likely that these controls are in a used condition, so you will not know if it has been properly adjusted.
If the 830 is a later model machine with the type 232 or 290 foot control and it is determined to be defective, no problem as they can be repaired.
4. If the (known good foot control) still does not work, you can assume that the motor has a problem. Motors for the Bernina 830 are occasionally available on EBAY and other sources.
Note: If the motor brushes have worn out and the commutator has been damaged, the motor is also salvageable.
-------------
Note: Always unplug the machine from the mains power when not in use as per Bernina instructions.

foot pedal is a HD voltage regulator that controls the motor speed by simply increasing/decreasing voltage supply. e.g. if the two wires to the foot pedal were connected the motor would get full voltage and run at max speed. most foot pedals can be adapted for your machine

Hello! I need to replace the motor on a Kenmore Series 16 machine. Model 158.162. The Sears website states the motor 5168, is not available anymore and no substitute is recommended by the manufacturer. ...


I realy dont think that you will find a new motor for a old kenmore, you may be able to find one on craigslist/ebay. How do you know it is the motor? Could just need new brushes or a new foot control. I have never had a bad motor on a old kenmore. replaced brushes and many foot cotrols.
Not that it could not happen but it would be rare.
hope this helps

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.
