SOURCE: Foot control for PFAFF won't work

These machines need to be seen by a technician who can disassemble the motors and replace the carbon brushes. You should have them serviced at the same time since it doesn't take that much longer to do everything.

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: foot control has no power

I've just fixed this problem by replacingthe main capacitor in the foot pedal. I have a Bernina 830. I needed a soldering iron, and I had to buy the right capacitor, but it fixed this exact problem. Btw, a few months ago this problem initially appeared (on my machine) as an issue where the speed was either zero, or full speed). After a white it wouldn't work at all.

Hi I have just bought a Piaf creative cd the previous owners said it was working fine however I plugged it in the lights came on but nothing happens when I press the foot pedal,the fuse seems ok


Could be a variety of things, but sometimes it is the control foot. Make sure it is securely plugged in. Otherwise, it may be time for service.

Foot pedal will not active machine


make sure it's plugged in tightly to machine. Make sure light is on . OH, does the light come on? If the light comes on., it will indicate that you are getting power to the machine

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.

I live overseas, and brought this sewing machine


its not transformer or machine problem at all.all the connections are also proper.its the power issue the required power to the machine is not getting from the electric outlet.just call the local electrician and check out the power supply voltage from the electric outlet.and power required to the machine which will be listed on the machine.if more power is required he will connect the over power IC and get the machine work.if less power is required he will connect the RESISTOR and lower the power to the machine and make it work.

White w2500 serger - nothing happens when foot pedal pressed


Sounds like it could be wiring - probably a job for a mechanic

Serger light comes on but the machine is not working


it could be any one of several things. the cord may be damaged (most likely at the foot control end). the foot control may be damaged. the motor may be damaged (either brushes worn out or winding burnt out).

as high voltage is involved i recommend you have a tech check it for you.

goodluck,
scott.
