Hello Tammy.

There is a mal-function in either the sewing machine or the foot control, or the junction. It would be good to find out which one is faulty. If the power and foot control leads are joined, there is no easy way to distinguish the location of the problem.

If your foot control and power leads are separate, disconnect the foot control and check if machine continues to sew by itself. If yes, the problem is with the machine. If no, the foot control is either stuck or malfunctioning. In either case it is best to take it to your local qualified technician.

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!

Speed is too fast when i use the pedal . I need to slow it down when sewing scallops on a quilt.


Put the pedal backwards so you are pressing on the big open end of the pedal. It gives you greater control. Practice a couple of times first because it feels awkward,

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.
