Elna 6000 sewing machine, machine running very slowly and will not speed up when more pressure applied to foot peddle. More details below ?


This happened with my 50 year old Elna Supermatic. It ran a bit slow, so I oiled it and it ran again okay. But then it got slower, and I had to turn the wheel to get it to start and then it would run. But then even that didn't work. No go, period. I checked the foot pedal which had a bit of lint inside but no obvious problems. But the light worked so power was getting through to the machine.
I took it in for service, and the repair guy said that the brushes inside the electric motor (they supply power to the turning part called the armature) were worn out and no longer making contact. $11.00 for new ones, and a service/cleaning charge, and it's running at full power again.

When my wife presses the foot pedal, nothing happens, except that the computer display says "OL". Does that mean that the foot pedal needs to be replaced?


What is the machine make and model?

OL may stand for overload and depending on the make and model it may be due to a number of different causes.

My Pfaff 130 will not sew when the foot peddle is pressed and the flywheel turns, but the big silver screw in the middle of the flywheel does not move. If I tighten the big silver screw and turn the...


Does the motor turn at all. Does it hum when turning it on. It may be burned or the pulley on the motor is loose. Tighten it up and that should get it . Let me know if that works.

Kenmore foot peddle going too fast to sew


The problem is either in the foot control or there is a short in your wiring. You can replace the foot control and hope that's where the problem is or Take it to a technician to be sure..The foot control will probably cost around $30-$50.

ok,,when you press the foot peddle you will hear a continuous noise like a motor running that means its not the foot peddle, if not peddle is dying or motor carbon brushes are worn, this is a simple fix, we just need to narrow it down
