Question about Janome Sewing Machines
I have a Janome Platinum 720. I have had a recurring problem with the foot pedal sticking when depressed. When I take my foot off the pedal, it continues to sew. The only way to stop it is to turn the machine off.
I live near the ocean and suspect that the contacts become corroded. I have taken the foot apart and polished the contact which seems to fix the problem for a while. Now, however, it only works intermittently and gives frequent Fc error codes. I suspect that I need a new foot but I can't find a source for it. Please advise on how to repair or where I can purchase a replacement foot pedel.
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.

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.
