Does the Singer Merritt 4530 uses the same footpedal as the 4530 c? My S Merritt 4530 c is 22 years old and I love it, but misplaced the footpedal after we moved.

Yes, the 4530C was only a variation to the 4530. It actually also fits a wide range of models, including some manufactured by Brother and J. C. Penney.

How can i stop my singer brilliance 6180 sewing machine from running... once i start sewing by stepping on the foot control.. even when i take my foot off.. it stills continues to sew and i have no idea...

you may find that the footpedal is faulty however there is a place on your footpedal where you can adjust the speed.. or sensitivity it takes a small screwdriver, have alook at your pedal is there a tiny screw or little hole maybe a plus or minus sign on it

I lost my footpedal for my excel janome sewing machine. Would a pedal foot from a 685 and 687 fit

If the fitting on the plug is the same as your machine it should be okay but check with your machine shop to be sure.

Sewing machine has no foot pedal control and operates immediately when power is connected

i believe you need to break that circut
if you cant find the working foot pedal
maybe you could use a tattoo machine gem footpedal
they are breakers fairly cheap online and very manuverable when in tight spaces....

Singer sewing machine beeps and wont repond to commands.

Sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere in the bobbin area that needs cleaning as this is normally what happens when it gets jammed. Reverse sewing can sometimes cause jams. Remove bobbin area and reassemble.

Janome Harmony footpedal doesn't respond when pressed.

It sounds like you have a wire off inside the footpedal. If it won't work when you press it but, it will start on it's own, the wire is bouncing around inside the foot pedal box. It should either clip onto or be held in place by a screw. Other than this, it could be a broken wire, most likely where the wire comes out of the foot pedal, but this probably isn't the problem or, you need to call Ghost Busters.

The footpedal in my 1209 PFAFF gets hot when I sew.

If your machine is turning easily the following applies.
This is a carbon pile foot control (Not Electronic) and when in use for an extended period of time(like doing embroidery,piecing quilts) the foot controller will get hot. There's nothing you can do about this except wear shoes.
If your machine is not turning freely, then if needs to be seen by a technician to find out why.
