The foot pedal of the machine don't work, and the machine turned the speed to the top when the plug is on. but was everything working well and passed sometime of using the machine started. what i do?


The foot pedal below uses a small connector. Make sure the connector is fully installed. It is possible that this foot pedal is defective. You need to try borrow another before replacing.

My sewing machine has power, but is not turning the gears. What is the problem, and should I bring it into sears for repair


If you can turn the hand crank and the needle moves up and down, then the gears are probably alright.

It could just be the floor pedal is oxidized and not making good contact so isn't allowing electricity to get to the motor. If you know anything about electricity, you can bypass the floor control pedal and just briefly put the full power to the motor and see if it runs full speed, then you know it is just the speed control floor pedal.

My janome 3000 is sewing at full speed..ii have to keep turning the power off to stop it..is it a software problem or the pedal? At times when I have been sewing a lot it does the racing thing so I ke


disconnect pedal from power and from machine, use om-meter and check resistance between poles, it should be ridiculously high between all poles to the xtent to show 0 on all possible connections.

depress pedal about 1/4 way - you should have flow between two pairs but not crossover with some resistance registering, but showing flow between pairs.

now, depress about half way, your resistance should be lower than previous one

depress in full - resistance should be very, very low

this testing will check conductivity of the food pedal and resistor switch attached to it. to make absolutely sure that this is pedal - borrow one from friend or even from the shop (they may ask you for small retainer if you do not know personnel, but usually lend you switch for a day or at least few hours.)

if you have results as described above, you can exclude foot pedal - your motherbord then will be responcible for weird behaviour of the machine, enquire about the repair - but be prepared - if machine is not under warranty - it maybe cheaper to buy new one than repair old one...

hope this little instruction will help you - do not forget to vote if you find advice useful.

Hesitates then speeds


Short answer, no. None of the overlockers have a speed half speed, most sew at 1500 stitches per minute which does take a little time to get used to.

My Huskylock 936 won't sew. I was sewing yesterday, 4 thread overlock. I finished a seam, cut the thread, proceeded to sew another seam. I put my foot on the pedal..and nothing.If I turn the machi


Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

Hi. About 5 years ago I purchased a Janome 744D Overlocker which I have only used once because the thread on the underside keeps snapping, and the needles keep breaking off. The foot is also very touchy...


Yes, overlockers sew fast, usually 1500 stitches per minute and with a blade in action alongside the loopers so there is a lot happening. Keep all pins well away from the seam edge, contrary to normal sewing machine techniques, if you pin two layers together, then place the pins parallel to the fabric cut edge at least 2 inches away from the edge so the pin goes nowhere near the foot or blade.

Check whenever you use it, that you firstly extend the thread aerial up to full height, you need to ensure the threads can flow smoothly to the tension dials as the thread will stream off fast, even the slightest catch of a thread will snap one, throw your tension out or damage a looper.

As you've had it all this time and not used it, why not consider investing a few dollars more and go to a class on overlockers, and learn how to thread it up for three, four, rolled hem and using the differential feed. If there is no class options in your area, then try the Janome dealer near you and see if they would consider giving you a a little lesson on using it. You could also check out the videos on You-tube or read some pages from Debbie on www.sewing.about.com, she has several pages on sergers (USA name for overlockers), explains the needles, threading, different techniques and maintenance. Or check out your local library for any books on sergers/overlockers, there are several good "how to" guides out there that would certainly help you get started.

Unfortunately there is no way to slow the speed to half speed, just practice with lots of fabric scraps at first, to get used to the sensitivity of the foot control. If you do dressmaking but aren't sure where to overlock or which seams you could only overlock, then consider just doing a three thread overlock around the edge of each fabric piece before you commence assembling the garment, just do your notch markings another way such as chalking them or using water soluable marker pen as the blade will cut away your outwards notches.

My other suggestion would be to make a simple sweat shirt on it using the 4 thread stitch and not touching your sewing machine at all. Once you've made one, you'll soon be wizzing them up in 30 mins, so quick to sew knits on an overlocker. Some of the commercial patterns are marked as suitable for sergers, look for one of these to try.

I hope this helps you to master your overlocker, a lesson or class would help you with the steep learning curve at first.

Huskylock 435 will not stop overlocking


There is a supressor, probably inside the case of the foot control, less likely in the body of the machine, that has burned out.......you may notice an acrid plastic/burnt odour near the source....sniff at the pedal or the rear of the machine to try to ident the location.
It is not actually necessary for the operation of the machine, it only stops interference if sewing while someone else is watching or listening to TV and Radio.
If you do not feel confident to undo, locate and remove this component I strongly suggest a quick trip to the repair shop (phone first, say the supressor is blown and ask for a quote)
You could also have a general service at the same time if it has been a while and is within your budget.

Foot pedal and thread guide


Same thing happened to my CE-200. It would only stitch one stitch at a time or else it would run full speed. My husband made an adjustment through a small hole on the back of the pedal and it now works much better. The adjustment hole apparently allows you to set the sensitivity of the electronics inside the pedal. He turned it slightly toward the + direction. It took a couple of small adjustments to get it to work nearly normal again.
