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: 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.

SOURCE: Run away foot pedal.

I had this problem with my Janome and also after I was given a new foot pedal as well, even though no fault could be found with it. I then suspected power surges as my computer went haywire at the same time on one occasion. I have never yet had the problem since I started to use surge sockets. I have only ever had the problem with my computerised machine, not my other although the foot pedals are the same.

Hi! I have a janome dsk30 that keeps beeping with the foot control light flashing. The only way to clear it seems to be to unplug the control foot and plug in again -any ideas?


Sounds like it is getting too hot if it is OK after unplugging. Is something stuck in your foot pedal? Give it a clean and hoover as dust and threads can get stuck there. Good luck

Machine ran on when pedal when released, pedal now no longer works and machine wont sewing more than one layer of fabric without getting jammed


How are you making it run now since the pedal doesn't work?
You probably should take it to a repairman/shop. When this happens, sometimes the pedal is shorting out and it kills the pedal and you will need to buy a new pedal. When it ran by itself, it might have either gotten a piece of material or thread caught in the shuttle or it might have knocked the machine "out of time" and you will need to have it put back in time so that it will run properly again. I don't know what the prices are in your area but I would imagine that it will all run about $125. Sometimes you can get a used pedal off ebay (check to make sure that the configuration of the plug is the same). Good Luck.

I have a Janome DC 2010. The machine has started to continue to sew even when my foot is off the foot control. I turn the machine off and then back on and it goes to error message fc....then goes to...


my book show the FC stands for Foot Control
have you tryed repluging the foot control into the machine to see if that stops the problem
if you have & it didn't stop the problem
then I agree you need a new foot control

Run away foot pedal.


I also have this problem with the pedal to my Janome Platinum 720. Took it to my dealer yesterday and the pedal is NOT under warranty and it costs $80 to replace. That is outrageous and I am trying to find another solution. They (Who??) are ripping us off. My machine is only year and half old and I only use it to take to classes. My Kenmore and Necchi machine pedals are still working after many many years of use.
