Sounds like you need to open the foot control and adjust the carbon bar, you will soon see it, just undo the screw and move it away from the contact or adjust the screw in the end.

Belt not gripping on singer 237 and needle doesn't go up and down


1. The motor has a bolt that you have to loosen and move up and down for adjustment.
2. Take the needle out first before adjusting.
3. You will slowly apply pressure to the foot control pedal until the motor is moving. Pull up on the motor to a point where the motor moves the fastest.
4. Tighten motor. Check again afterwards.
5. It is essential that the center of the hand wheel is tightened before you begin.

Machine is behaving as if not getting any power, but light is on. Press foot pedal and absolutely nothing happens


There is probably a bad connection in your foot pedal. Try moving it around with your hands at the contact points while pressing to activate. If it goes when you are shifting its position then it needs to be fixed or replaced.

Foot pedal not working


Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

The foot pedal on my Singer Inspiration is stuck on fast speed.


Hi lawoffice474...

Unplug your foot pad from the machine and the electrical receptical.
Try moving the foot pedal with your hands, back and forth as if you were pressing your foot on it.
Did it loosen up?
If yes then you still need some maintenance...
If no then you still need some maintenance.
Disassemble the foot pedal and take as many pictures as you need to be able to reassemble it.
Once you have disassembled then you will look to oil (one drop max) the pivot points of the foot pedal, like the hinge assembly, reostat linkage,etc.
Once you have it oiled then try moving the foot pedal again my hand before reassembly.
If everything moves ok then your good to go...
Reassemble the foot control.
If not then its time to replace it with another foot pedal such as one of these at this webpage below:
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

All power and motor seems ok but needle shaft doesn't respond to foot pedal ... nothing happens! Help! Can't find model number but it is electric Singer 70/80's


It is probably the foot pedal. There should be a plate that gives the model # and Serial #. You can call Singer at 1-800-4singer and order or go on their site and find it by serial #. There are also sites
like www.sewingpartsonline.com and see how much a universal foot pedal is and go from there. Usually, they are about $30.

Singer 2259 - The machine has stopped moving, the foot pedal is making some noise and the hand wheel will turn OK but nothing moves when I push the foot pedal.


Check to see if you have your bobbin winder on. That's usually the problem. Just push it to the left and you should be ok.
