Because you say all was working for a while before this latest event, it will be the supressor that has failed, they are generally in the foot control (some machines have them in the main body near the power inlet) and it needs to be removed, it only stops interference to Radio & TV and is not necessary for correct function...............your nose will tell you if it is in foot pedal or inside the machine..

Unplug from mains, undo cover/s and find the electronic looking item which is cracked, burnt & probably oozing brown goo and smelling like burned plastic only worse.... Simply remove this from the circuit, clean the region with some denatured spirit, methanol or similar, wait until completely dry and re-assemble....this should fix the problem of the machine "running on" by itself....as to whether you have done a good job of the initial electrical repair, only you will know that.

By the way, how's the dog ? Guess the machine was not plugged in at the time !!

There is a thing called a suppressor which is normally located in the foot control which has fused, you need to open the foot control and you should see a a small thing that looks liuke a fuse connected to the two terminals which you need to take out and discard because you don't need it any more, if you don't have on in the control then it will be on the motor which means you will have to take it in for repair.

My riccar 555su machine starts sewing as soon as I plug in. Foot pedal is stationed inside cabinet by knee, but I'm not controlling it.


The pedal is stuck in the ON position. Unplug the sewing machine and try to open up the pedal to inspect it. Or try pressing the pedal a few time to loosen up the pedal movement. Good luck!.

Why riccar a303 sewing machine just stop running?


Difficult to advise. Can you operate it manually by turning the handwheel clockwise? Does the motor make noise when you step on the foot control but the needle does not move?

It appears to be a mechanical machine. If so, it could need a good cleaning and oiling. That is probably a good place to start. (Consult your owner's manual and use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil.) Could be a multiple of other things, ie loose/broken belt, foot control failure, carbon brushes or capacitor, electrical problem, motor problem... Probably best to take it in for service.

What to do when foot pedal just stopped working on old Bernina 830


There are a few problems possible. Assuming that there is not a mains (house) power problem, use the following logic to sort out the problem:
1. Do you have a light (assuming that the light bulb is good)? continue to #2.
2. With the machine unthreaded, the presser foot up, and the power cable plugs fully plugged in at the motor and foot control, depress the control to the run position.
Carefully bend and wiggle the cables at the plug locations one at a time. If the motor runs, the cable wires are damaged so you will replace the cable.
3. If available, try a (known good foot control) from another Bernina 830 of that exact vintage.
If the test foot control runs the machine, replace your foot control. Note: If the foot control is a type 213 for very old models, suggest that the control be replaced with a two wire electronic phase type control. (requires the foot control plug end to be cut off and rewired to the new phase controller). These electronic phase controls can be purchased from EBAY. Stay away from the Bernina type 213 control if possible. The type 213 controls have not been available for many years and it is highly likely that these controls are in a used condition, so you will not know if it has been properly adjusted.
If the 830 is a later model machine with the type 232 or 290 foot control and it is determined to be defective, no problem as they can be repaired.
4. If the (known good foot control) still does not work, you can assume that the motor has a problem. Motors for the Bernina 830 are occasionally available on EBAY and other sources.
Note: If the motor brushes have worn out and the commutator has been damaged, the motor is also salvageable.
-------------
Note: Always unplug the machine from the mains power when not in use as per Bernina instructions.

You need purchase a foot control and a "motor and light block" to be able to control the speed of the machine. The machine plugs into the terminal marked motor on the motor and light block.

RICCAR MODEL 210B


I have a Riccar 210B sewing machine. It is about 37 years old. I have been the only owner and up to yesterday it was working fine. Today the motor seems to have quit.

Is the motor repairable? The tag on the motor says YM-40 80W 115V.

Thank you, Susan in Kailua-Kona HI
