The foot control on my husqvarna 545 viking sewing machine quit working. What's going on?

First not familiar with exact product , however troubleshooting is common.
This is if pedal can be unplugged and you have access to volt meter (these are cheap enough under $20 and have other uses to support purchase) , set meter to measure continuity, set meter to lowest ohms to start. Before using on pedal touch the red and black leads together, touching the result should be zero on meter, not touching infinity or blank. Connect leads in various manners to the pins or sockets move pedal. If your meter reads a high number while moving pedal you have an open circuit.
If you see the meter fluctuate as you depress pedal that would be expected ( normal) but then when fully depressed go high ( open) your pedal switch is faulty. The variation in resistance as you push pedal slowly is what varies the speed.

The needle is not going up and down, the fabric is not feeding thru. The foot pedal is not working at all. How do I fix this?

Is it plugged in? (The foot pedal) Your machine may have power but in most setups the foot pedal is the master controller; since it controls motor speed everything mechanical is affected by whether it works or not.

The foot pedal is not moving the machine but still makes a noise

A: You said, "The your foot pedal is not moving the machine, but still makes a noise". . . . I'd suggest checking if the sewing machine has a disengaged or broken drive belt, gear or linkage; if not the problem, may just be that the Hand-Wheel clutch mechanism (on the left center of the Hand Wheel) is in the Bobbin-Winding position. If so, it allows the machine to cycle, operating the Bobbin-Winder without the needle moving up or down. Older Brother machines, like many other brands, used a large flat shiny Screw Knob in the center of the Hand Wheel to engage or disengage the Bobbin-Winding feature, newer models use a plastic teeter-totter switch located in the same place, to do the same thing. Keep tinkering, you'll will resolve it.

Why does everything get hot except electrosurge wire tip for cutting?

A couple of possibilities:
1. Remove the belt. While using the foot pedal it is necessary to see if the motor moves freely without excess heat. If there is a problem the motor must be replaced or fixed.
2. Try to turn the machine without the motor attached by using the hand wheel. Does it move freely? If this is a problem the part that is causing the resistance must be found. Especially check the hook (under the bobbin case), needle arm and monitor moving parts.
3. Is the belt in good shape? If it is not so good then replace it.
4. While the belt is attached the motor must be cocked to allow the least resistance and most speed while the motor is running. This must be done carefully while the motor is running slowly. (foot control) The adjustment can be done most accurately this way.
5. Clean and oil all moving parts.
6. Make sure the bulb is the right size and not touching any of the metal surfaces.

Machine 438 started whilst only the light on did not touch foot controller. Capacitator had blown replaced and also replaced resistor 2 orange bands and one green machine still goes with no control from...

Some of the newer computerized machines have a button that allows one to sew without the foot pedal controller. Are you sure that you haven't engaged that button?

My machine gergles and then the needle starts to vivbrate back and forth without touching the pedal. It seems like it starts doing this after it is on for a while.

The foot/knee control is hanging in the 'on' position slightly. Look for an adjustment screw on the control, something that will let you set the pedal position. Try to adjust it so as to have a tiny dead spot at the beginning of the pedal travel, so that you actually have to move the pedal a little before the machine starts.

I have a white model 8-19428 when i plug it in the machine starts running full blast without ever touching the foot pedal

Unplug the foot pedal to see if it still runs fast. If so, there is probably an interior defect related to motor control that will need to be serviced. If everything is quiet when the pedal is removed, then the foot control to the speed rheostat is loose or broken. Hope this helps!
