Question about Brother LS-2125 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a 40 year old Brother sewing machine. It now runs whenever the foot controller is plugged in. The only way of stopping the machine is by pulling out the connection to the machine. How can I get it repaired? Is it the condenser which is causing the problem?
Yes, it is the capacitor, or the condenser as you call it has comletely short-circuited electrically bypassing the rheostat, which causes the motor to run at full speed. The cure is simple...cut it out of the circuit. On Singer machines the culprit is usually located inside the foot pedal box...probably on your Brother machine also. They were meant to supress noise from entering into your power line, which causes interference when listening to AM broadcasts, which everyone at the time did. The capacitors themselves will either be in one or two round cans or square flat cans. Simply snip the wires to the capacitor(s) inside the foot controller box and your machine will once again work like normal!
