Hi there,

Well Yes first of all you can try changing the male cord plug. if further you have the same problem then you need to check for some lose wire..... check all the wires goes through the male connector to the foot pedal motor. 
post further comments for more information .......

thanks

    See to check is there any burnt sign on the lower cable goes to pedal. otherwise you need a multimeter to check all the wires.

Hooking up the two wires from the foot controller to the 3 prong plug on thebsewing machine


Ok. One of the wires provides power to the machine. It will attach to the motor directly from the power cord. The other two wires go to the pedal. Really, it's a circuit. One wire runs power down, when the pedal is up, no power to the machine. The other wire runs electricity to the machine when the pedal is pushed down. I am sorry I can't be of more help. Knowing the color of the wires would be helpful.

If the attachment to the machine is 2 prongs (male) and the cord has two small holes for the prongs (female) you can try gently squeezing the plug with the female end to make the contacts a bit tighter. It sounds like the connection is not making contact properly

How to set up


  • Remove your Janome sewing machine from the box, placing the main machine on a hard surface appropriate for sewing and the accessories and smaller items to the side. Unwrap all of the wrapped items. Remove the tape used to protect the machine during shipment. Set aside the power cord and foot pedal.

  • 2

    Attach the power cord to the machine. The power cord plug-in area is located on the lower right side of all Janome sewing machines and has a series of metal prongs and a power switch. Fit the female end of the power cord onto the metal prongs and push it gently until it no longer moves.

  • 3

    Attach the foot pedal to the machine. The foot pedal plug-in is also located on the lower right side of all Janome machines, right next to the power cord plug-in. Press the foot pedal plug-in into place gently until it no longer moves.

  • 4

    Turn the power switch on. The power switch is located in the same area as the foot pedal and power cord plug-ins and is a rectangular black switch. Press this button. The sewing machine light will turn on.

  • 5

    Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, located on the upper right top side of the sewing machine. Place the thread so that the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise motion, with the thread coming off the back of the spool.

  • 6

    Insert a needle into your machine. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate size and type of needle. Turn the needle clamp screw, located above the needle area, toward you to loosen it. Turn the needle so that the flat part of the upper shaft area faces the rear and slide the shaft of the needle up and into the needle area. Turn the needle clamp screw away from you to tighten the needle and lock it into place.

  • 7

    Wind the bobbin and insert the bobbin into the bobbin case. This procedure may vary depending on the model of your Janome machine, so consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

  • 8

    Thread your machine according to the directions in your owner's manual. Like the bobbin, this procedure can vary widely depending on the model of your Janome machine.

  • 9

    Set your tension, located on the front of the machine, to halfway between three and four. The tension may be a dial or it may be computerized and located on the LCD screen, depending on your model. Consult your owner's manual to find out how to set the tension.

  • 10

    Place a piece of scrap fabric in the machine and sew a test seam before you start to work on a project to make sure all of your settings are correct.

Just bought a used model singer 6233 need to know where foot pedal plugs in


The Singer 6233 was one of the models that briefly were made using air-powered foot controls. So you aren't looking for a traditional electrical connection. Instead, your pedal cord's female end will connect onto a black male nipple, that sticks out on the right side of the machine (the side with the handwheel). Just push it on until it feels snug.

Light dims when you sew


the problem is that the cord that was replaced on it is too light for the sewing machine. some companies sell cords that are made with 18awg wire 18awg wire can only deliver enough electricity to run the motor sapping up all of the power from the light as soon as you push the pedal. you need to get a cord made by singer or rewire your cords with 16awg wire... 16awg wire is the standard wire for all vintage singer sewing machines it keeps the light nice and bright...... hope this helps

Have you talked to the folk from whom you bought the "Fab" device ?
They are the most likely to be able to advise...perhaps take all lthe bits in to them to look at, they may have adapters or other solutions.

Singer 7462 sewing machine


There is two seperate cords on this machine. A power cord and a pedal cord. If you put the power cord in and switch the machine on, and then remove the pedal cord it should give you a beeping sound, which shows you the connection does work.

Please give me feedback in order to help you
