Sounds like the foot petal needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Make sure everything is unplugged. Use WD-40 on everything except any electrical parts, it has chemical  agents in it that break down the plastic after a long period of time.

Foot petal is not working and it is plugged in.


Is there power, does the sewing bed light come on? If so there is probably a fault with the pedal. If you are practical you can open the pedal and fit a volt meter across the terminals to see if the voltage increase when the pedal is pressed.

My singer touch & sew suddenly didn't stop


There might be something jamming the petal open so it won't slow or stop when you put your foot on it.. I would try that, get some canned air and blow it out and see if it helps.

My Husqvarna Viking 980 continues to sew when I take my foot off the petal. Sometimes the stich get very tight when this occurs. Could this be the foot petal or is my circuit board going out?


I have never seen it be the circuit board, always is the foot control switch. I dont understand the stitch getting tight though. And yes, it could be the circuit board.

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!


There is no suppressor in the foot control of a 425. Only the control unit, which may need to be replaced. If the machine accelerates to full speed, it may have a problem with the "stop right" board which tells the machine whether to stop with the needle up.
You could have several problems, so go see a qualified Husqvarna repairman. You may contact Husqvarna customer service to locate the best one in your area.
