That foot pedal had a feature of High speed on one side of the pedal and low speed on the other. Either your speed control unit inside the pedal is slightly burnt or the spring inside the pedal has moved out of position slightly. Even dirt could be the culprit if it found it's way into the speed control unit inside the pedal.

How do I fix my singer 6333? I plugged it in the light comes on the foot pedal is attached but no air coming the machine to the foot pedal therefore no sewing action how do I fix it?


There are some sewing machines that the foot pedal is driven by air pressure. Sometimes they will develop leaks so the air does not build up enough pressure to activate the machine. You might see about finding a replacement foot pedal--however if that is not the problem, you may waste your money. Perhaps a sewing repair shop can help you.

This will be the bellows inside the side panel of the machine where your foot pedal air line feeds into rather than the foot pedal. Really short of cutting or sitting on the air line with your chair, not much goes wrong there. It,should be repairable if you can locate a Swiss Elna trained/experienced techician.

Foot lock does not lock so machine won't turn on


unplug the machine & look at the foot pedal. any dust,etc around the edges can keep the switch from making. open the foot pedal (probably has 4 screws) find the little switch, it probably just needs to be cleaned. if it still wont work search for a new one using the numbers on the side of the switch.

When this happens unplug the foot pedal and see if it stops. That would suggest it is in the pedal. Does the machine try to turn when this happens?

Presser foot stopped working I turned


Did you connect your machine then press the foot control before you lowered you presser foot? I have a CS6000 and that is what E1 means on my machine. You did not put your model number in so I don't know. You can look in your manual or go online to www.brother-usa.com and look it up for your machine. Try unplugging and plugging it in again, but put your presser foot down then step on your foot pedal.

I have a Husqvarna Viking 2000 SL and it seems there is a short in the cord. The machine has power because the light turns on, but the foot pedal does not work. Any suggestions?


The first thing to check is the pedal itself. If you have a continuity tester you can check to see if a connection is being made in the pedal when it's being stepped on.

You can also turn the handwheel back and forth while you step on the pedal with the power to the machine on. If the motor starts to run a little bit, you know the pedal is good and the motor carbons will be bad.

That machine's rear cover over the motor comes off somewhat easily, so you could also check the connections in the electric terminal where the foot control plugs in. Make sure to have it unplugged when you do this part. Gently move the wires near where they connect to the terminal block and see if any are loose. There are screws there that tighten onto the wires that sometimes loosen which would make your pedal not work.
