How do you change the speed on a typical sewing machine2603 ?


most sewing machines are controlled by a foot peddle the harder you press the faster it goes but if this one is electronic it should have another method of slowing it down

My Bernina 730E is varying in speed even though I am pressing foot pedal to thr floor. The speed does not stay steady, somestimes running extremely slow in full speed mode. What is wrong?


it could be pedal control or the speed control unit on the motor as it is reasonably common for that machine
take it in for a service to ensure that other factors ( thread around bobbin shaft, fluff etc is not slowing the machine

Slow sewing regardless of speed setting


I'm thinking that the problem is in the foot control
take the foot control to a sewing machine repair shop and have it checked out
you say it appears aftermarket--probably is to replace a faulty OEM unit

Need Electric Motor & foot Control


Didn't you like my previous answer David? Would this machine of yours be a Juki by any chance? I am your sewing machine expert here today. Reply back as a COMMENT not as a new post please.

The variable speed comes from the foot controller.

Here are some links for you to look at in regards Juki Spares.

Can not start at a slow speed with foot pedal need to now how to adjust start speed


THE FOOT PEDLE IS NOTHING BUT A REASTAT. A REASTAT IS A WIRE WRAPPED AROUND A CONDUCTOR THE WINDINGS START OUT FAR APART AND GET CLOSER TOGETHER THE FARTHER YOU PUSH THE PEDLE DOWN . THE FAR APART WIRES ARE THE SLOW SPEED THE CLOSER ONES ARE FASTER SPEED
THESE WIRES WILL WEAR OUT OVER TIME OR CORRODE OVER TIME AND CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. TRY SOME ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER AND SPRAY THE FOOT PEDLE INSIDE ANY WHERE YOU CAN AND LET DRY. MOST CONTACT CLEANERS ARE NONE CONDUCTIVE AND DRY IN MINUTES

Speed does not stay constant


Hi, Chances are good that you need to have your foot controller repaired. The electrical contacts inside the foot control can either get dirty/dusty or worn out.
If it is not an electrical problem, like your foot control ( and I think it is) then it is a mechanical problem inside your machine. If it is mechanical and your machine is "binding up" , when it slows you would find it hard to turn the hand wheel located on the end of your 180. One other possibility is that the brushes in your machines motor are worn out and you need to have the motor replaced.
All three problems would require professional help as there are not any user serviceable parts on your machine. A good cleaning and servicing at a Bernina dealer should get you back on track.
Good luck, bushvideo
