Question about Husqvarna Freesia 425

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!

Yikes. my freesia 425 is posessed! it keeps sewing without my touching the foot pedal (control foot).
when the foot pedal stopped working, i pulled its plug out (on side of machine next to power chord socket) and when i put it back in, the machine started sewing slo-o-wly. on its own!! so now i have to yank out the foot pedal cable for it to stop. strangely enough,  the foot pedal responds again in this slow mode, but when i take my foot off the pedal the machine goes back to sewing slowly.
 how can i fix this?

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.

Sounds like your foot control is faulty.
I can supply foot controls for 99% of sewing machines.

I need a new "A"

Have you tried Also, I am not sure what you mean by the 1/4" . Also, my first Viking machine was a cam model and all the presser feet that I had for that machine will work on the Fressia 425. However, the 425 will go 6 mm width and the old cam machine was considerably less. So I can't use the full 6 mm width with the old feet. If you can't find the foot on any Viking dealer should be able to get the foot for you.
