Foot pedal is getting extremely hot

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

Do you have a foot pedal for Singer 2210?


Your foot pedal works on several models of high-end machines, including a Bernina. Unfortunately, while you can easily purchase a replacement at several sites, it's pricey. However, I took a look on eBay, and there's one for sale there for $50, which is much better than $149, which is the list price. Here's the link

My serger doesnt make any stitches at all. I have been going through this book for 3 years and I cant get it to work


Has it ever chained off since you bought it? If you purchased it second hand it is possible that the timing of the loopers is out and this will prevent a chain from forming.

However, I'll go through general overlocker/serger troubleshooting for threading up. The critical things are to thread it exactly as the diagram shows, some sergers have a diagram inside the front looper cover so its easy to refer to when you are working on the machine. Or use the manual diagram. There is a sequence you need to follow in threading up, usually upper looper, lower looper, then the needles. This is important. Then you pull all four threads under the raised pressure foot, lower the pressure foot, and start to stitch and hopefully a chain forms. If you need to change a thread you can knot on a new colour, turn the tension to zero, then pull through the new thread. Pull the knot right through the looper eyes but you will need to cut the knot out and thread the needles with the new colour once you get there. Then turn tension back to the normal setting (5 usually) and again pull all threads under the foot.

The timing of the two loopers to the needles is critical to a stitch forming though so if you have tried everything and aren't getting a result; then perhaps its time to take it to a service centre, get it checked out and if it works fine for them, ask for a quick demo of threading up, then do it yourself with the demonstrator watching.

Overlockers are very different to sewing machines and there is a learning curve but once mastered, they are so quick and give a great finish.

I've just got janome 634d serger, how can i make the bottom of a T-shirt ? Thank you so much


If you want the bottom of the T to look like RTW with the double row of stitching, you cannot do this on a serger.

You can achieve the effect by using a twin needle, two spools of thread, bobbin and a straight stitch.

Make sure the double/twin needle will pass through the presser foot and opening in the needle plate below the presser foot.

Practice on a double layer of a scrap of the T shirt material as the tension may need to be slightly looser than the normal setting.
