SOURCE: foot pedal assembly for White sewing machine

You only need to replace the cord if it has been damaged. It will cost less if you just take the machine , cord and control to a local technician and have him just replace the foot control. Let him test it first. A generic foot control should cost less than $30.

You may need a new foot pedal. Find a small applicance repair shop and ask them if they can test the pedal. Take the machine with you.

SOURCE: My Viking 5710 starts to sew without any pressure on foot pedal

Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.

Chances are you have a small piece of thread stuck in the raceway, turn the balance wheel bac kwards and you may free it off otherwise take out the bobbin and bobbin case and the raceway if you have the type with a drop down gate and clear it.

Could a missing bobbin case keep a Bernina 1000 from running? It turns on, and the hand dial works, but foot pedal doesn't run the machine


no a bobbin case won't keep it from running, there may be a problem with the foot control, or the plug that you plug the foot pedal into may have a problem, may need to have the machine check along with the foot pedal

Can I purchase a foot pedal, adaptor,(if required) and an instruction manual for synergy 8 stitch sewing machine please.


This type of machine is usually referred to as a mini sewing machine and as such it is manufactured by the million with minor styling variations and various makers' badges. They all use the same foot control and power adaptor.

The simplest solution is to search for "mini sewing machine foot pedal" or similar on eBay, but don't pay very much because the machines are simply not worth it. They can be bought new for around £50 including accessories and manual etc. I think about a£10 is what you might have to pay but honestly you'd be better off with a second hand full sized machine.

Can I get a part to replace the foot pedal. I need to be able to control it with my hand instead of my foot.


I'm not sure if this helps, but my mother attached her foot pedal to the inside of her sewing machine table. That way she could use her thigh to push it by moving her leg to the right.

well if the foot pedal isn't working, you can either replace it with a new one or take the machine to a sewing machine repair shop & let them check the foot pedal & see if it's fixable

The foot pedal on my Singer Inspiration is stuck on fast speed.


Hi lawoffice474...

Unplug your foot pad from the machine and the electrical receptical.
Try moving the foot pedal with your hands, back and forth as if you were pressing your foot on it.
Did it loosen up?
If yes then you still need some maintenance...
If no then you still need some maintenance.
Disassemble the foot pedal and take as many pictures as you need to be able to reassemble it.
Once you have disassembled then you will look to oil (one drop max) the pivot points of the foot pedal, like the hinge assembly, reostat linkage,etc.
Once you have it oiled then try moving the foot pedal again my hand before reassembly.
If everything moves ok then your good to go...
Reassemble the foot control.
If not then its time to replace it with another foot pedal such as one of these at this webpage below:
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!


There is no suppressor in the foot control of a 425. Only the control unit, which may need to be replaced. If the machine accelerates to full speed, it may have a problem with the "stop right" board which tells the machine whether to stop with the needle up.
You could have several problems, so go see a qualified Husqvarna repairman. You may contact Husqvarna customer service to locate the best one in your area.
