My Bernina 730E is varying in speed even though I am pressing foot pedal to thr floor. The speed does not stay steady, somestimes running extremely slow in full speed mode. What is wrong?


it could be pedal control or the speed control unit on the motor as it is reasonably common for that machine
take it in for a service to ensure that other factors ( thread around bobbin shaft, fluff etc is not slowing the machine

My Singer Sewing Machine runs too fast. Is there a way to slow it down?


what type of machine do you have. I have two that I operate with buttons and it has a little slide button to speed or slow down I don't know why it should run to fast with a foot pedal because you control the speed with your foot you may want to check to see if there is any trash that has gotten in the foot and somehow not allowing the foot to come back up

The foot pedal gets hot after a few minutes


It sounds as though the foot pedal is the problem. Maybe a shorted out wire in the actuator (rheostat). When your foot is off the pedal there should be no power running through it. If it has a short then it "thinks" the pedal is partially depressed to the slow position so runs at that speed. If the pedal can be removed/unplugged from the machine, do this and see if the machine stops running.

How do I fix the speed of stitching? When I press on the foot feed I get almost no speed from it.


unless it has been progressively getting slower, I did have a simular issue. My pedal was getting "stuck" at the 1/2 mark. (wasn't pressing all the way down). Drove me nuts. Took the machine apart, cleaned oiled, cleaned again blah blah blah...when the pedal was the last option took it apart and found a nut from a screw had gotten inside the pedal and stopping it from pressed down. There could be a burr, a nick or something it is catching on.

Why when the Foot pedal is pushed all the way down does it click and only allow th machine to go at a very slow speed?


Check to see if there is something caught up in the foot pedal, like a scrap of fabric. That could be enough to prevent you from fully closing the pedal. Disconnect the pedal from the machine and from the wall. Holding the pedal in your hands, squeeze it closed as far as you can. Release. It should pop open. If it does not, then the pedal springs may be broken or worn out.

Sewing machine running slow


check the plug in to the outlet first
then check the power cord connection to the sewing machine
could be something wrong with the power cord
could also be something wrong with the motor
also could be a wiring problem

Can not start at a slow speed with foot pedal need to now how to adjust start speed


THE FOOT PEDLE IS NOTHING BUT A REASTAT. A REASTAT IS A WIRE WRAPPED AROUND A CONDUCTOR THE WINDINGS START OUT FAR APART AND GET CLOSER TOGETHER THE FARTHER YOU PUSH THE PEDLE DOWN . THE FAR APART WIRES ARE THE SLOW SPEED THE CLOSER ONES ARE FASTER SPEED
THESE WIRES WILL WEAR OUT OVER TIME OR CORRODE OVER TIME AND CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. TRY SOME ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER AND SPRAY THE FOOT PEDLE INSIDE ANY WHERE YOU CAN AND LET DRY. MOST CONTACT CLEANERS ARE NONE CONDUCTIVE AND DRY IN MINUTES

is the machine easy to turn by handwheel? if not it may be seizing and needs servicing.

if the machine is free to turn by hand it sounds like your foot control is in need of repair or replacement - see a tech.
