I have a Singer Athena 2000 that stops working randomly. I was able to start it again by turning the switch off and back on, but now it won't start.

Are you still having problems? If so try a different foot pedal. Make sure you use an original foot pedal for your singer. Just an idea.

Why does the foot peddle get hot?

Many sewing machine foot pedals are little more than a variable resistor. To run the motor at a slower speed much of the input power is wasted in the foot pedal in order to allow the motor to run slower. That wasted power comes out of the foot pedal as heat.
Newer foot controls are electronic and don't get hot.

Elna 9000 foot pedal

it sounds like you may have a connection problem with the plug on the sewing machine and the foot pedal, it would be a good idea to have them checked.

Machine going too fast

The foot pedal is faulty, the electronic voltage control is not working and only when the contacts are connected physically does the machine receive any power (maximum) It depends on your type of foot pedal whether or not it is repairable

What is err code F04

It most likely is your foot pedal. Unplug your foot pedal and start the machine without it. If it works properly without the foot pedal plugged in then your foot pedal needs repaired or replaced. This worked for us with the NX400 machine and I am sure the NX450 is closely similar. Don't bother to buy a Manual if you didn't already get one with the machine. A Service manual and parts manual is best; But just so you know they don't show the error codes unless you are a qualified and authorized repair person for the machines. I got my info from the repair man where my wife buys and repairs her machines. I am an electronic technician and mechanic so I understand how this system works. I will be repairing my wife's machines from now on.

Runs full speed without pushing the pedal!!!

  1. it sounds like the filter capacitor has failed. the capacitor is usually located inside the foot control but may be inside the machine itself.
try taking the foot control apart (dis-connect from power first). you should see a component rectangular in shape connected to the wires in the foot control. dis-connect this component (it will not adversely affect the running of your machine) and then re-assemble the foot control and test. if this did not fix the problem see a tech.
