On the base of the foot pedal there is a tensioner for the cable. Try loosening or tightening that first. If you still have the manual from when you bought it, it is explained in deatil in there. It's a common issue - not to worry!

My Singer Sewing Machine runs too fast. Is there a way to slow it down?


what type of machine do you have. I have two that I operate with buttons and it has a little slide button to speed or slow down I don't know why it should run to fast with a foot pedal because you control the speed with your foot you may want to check to see if there is any trash that has gotten in the foot and somehow not allowing the foot to come back up

How do I fix the speed of stitching? When I press on the foot feed I get almost no speed from it.


unless it has been progressively getting slower, I did have a simular issue. My pedal was getting "stuck" at the 1/2 mark. (wasn't pressing all the way down). Drove me nuts. Took the machine apart, cleaned oiled, cleaned again blah blah blah...when the pedal was the last option took it apart and found a nut from a screw had gotten inside the pedal and stopping it from pressed down. There could be a burr, a nick or something it is catching on.

I have a motor guide great white saltwater series 109 lb thrust 36 v trolling motor. I hooked the 3 batteries up right but it isn't running right, it's very slow. What do I do with the grey wire which has...


running to slow indicates voltage too low
you will have 3 X 12 volt batteries connected in series ( positive to negative to positive to negative with positive to motor The first battery negative connected to the ground on the motor
the multicore wire cable is for 12 volt draws as in fish finder, light etc and can be connected across any single battery terminals
They could also be for a foot controlled pedal that is forward and reverse operation
that will be explained in the user manual

Dodge neon gas pedal problem


Not sure what spring you're talking about with the CAI. The CAI is just pipes and hoses, there shouldn't be a spring. Have you driven another 2002 neon before? I know with some cars, the gas pedals are a lot stiffer than others. My gas pedal on my Focus is a lot stiffer and more sensitive than my friend's aveo or civic. The spring I think you're refering to is probably the one hooked up to the pedal itself which is easy. Just pull out the old spring and put in a new one.

I would check the battery. If you're using an old or under charged battery you will loose power for sure. Make sure you're also using a 12v deep cycle marine battery as this will ensure proper operation and a longer battery life.
