Question about Singer Sewing Machines
I have a singer overlocker/serger, the foot pedal gets extremely hot. I returned it when I first purchased it and was told by the technician that there was nothing wrong with it. When I use it, it smells like something is melting/burning and the base of the pedal gets too hot to touch. the technician told me this was NORMAL. I have not been using it as I am scared it will catch fire, even though I have only used it twice obviously the warranty has expired. does anyone else have this problem with there singer.
I would suggest that you do not use the pedal. there is no chance that the foot pedal has to heat up. this is an anomaly and checked within. open the pedal and look inside. you will locate a switch/ circuit. If there is heat building up remove the mains connection and test carefully with you finger for the heat build up area. Also smell for any burning. You will get to the fault with no difficulty. If not replace with a new pedal.Try to send a mail to your singer dealer with the fact that it is unusual and dangerous. I am sure they will replace it for you fearing any accident. So check this out. hope my advice helps. Good day
