My pfaff 1222e is running slow

1. Remove any stuck material from the feed dog, bobbin area including the hook (pointed object under bobbin). Lubricate as you go.
2. Remove top and end of sewing machine to look at the motor and belt. Place pressure on the foot pedal. Still slow?
3. With bolt attached to motor release the pressure on the belt. Now, place pressure on the foot pedal. Did you notice any increase in speed?
4. Apply pressure on the foot pedal and simultaneously adjust the motor. Adjusting means tightening of the belt and making it move in a straight line. (If it doesn't move straight it puts pressure on the motor so it will move slow.) When you have adjusted the motor to the right position the motor will be at it's highest speed.
5. If the pressure foot is the problem it will require a pro to take care of it.

Janome jf 1004 motor running slow

The problem that I've had with most motors running slow is the drive belt is too tight, out of alignment or too loose. To adjust you need to have access to the belt. Notice where the nut is that holds it in place. Carefully, loosen the nut and slowly push on the foot control You will have to move the motor in different ways until you can notice the speed is at it's highest. This means to tighten, loosen or shimmy the motor to one side or the other. Be careful so you don't get hurt!

Avv8000agw slow spin and smelly

First of all check if the motor is hot or there is friction on the drive. Since you had noticed some smell then the best option is to trace the smell which must confirm the case. It could be the motor or possible capacitor or within the power supply or drive output.

How do I get Featherweight out of first gear?

Hi, unless you have thread caught up in the hook area the problem may very much be that the belt is too tight. It should be seemingly loose or just tight enough to turn the machine. There is a big screw to the motor mount. Loosen the motor and adjust it to loosen the belt. Belt too tight and slowing machine is common issue.

How can i slow down the turn table on a crosley cr 66 multiplayer with no control speed and it don't work pulling the arm to the right I tried that not helpful

The problem is in the motor of the turntable, the regulator is not putting out the correct voltage to the motor, and the circuit is often built into the motor making it impossible to service. The only option is motor replacement.

Motor runs but when load is put on treadmill motor slows down substantially. Repairman tech said motor was bad. Took motor to two electric motor repair shops and they tested it (not under load) and stated...

Excessive wear on the deck and belt can cause high friction which then puts a heavier load on the motor. You may want to check the belt and deck for wear.

My husky vt6135 ar compressor when it gets near psi setting it starts to slow down. then it stops, but the motor is sill trying to run and the belts squeel i have to shut it off to keep from burning off...

Loosen the motor mounting bolts and slide the motor away from the compressor to tighten the belts. Proper adjustment is achieved when the belts have about 1/2 to 3/4 inch up/down travel in the middle run of the belt. Tighten the motor mounts before checking tension. Be sure to examine the condition of the belts first. Good luck!

Van shuts off when I slow down at lights

Sounds like your serpentine belt driving the alternator and power steering units is too loose. If you haven't had it replaced, it may be time.

Technics SL-BD22 Turntable Motor

Unfortunately there are no parts available for your model, with the exception of the belt. Everything has been discontinued.

If it started working good after you reconnected it, then maybe the problem might be a loose connection, or a resistor that might not be working properly, which can be checked by any competent service technician. Resistors are generic components, so as long as it is the correct rating, your technician will be able to replace it. However, the motor, is a different story. Unless you find the exact same turntable and strip it for parts. If the resistors are good, then more than likely the motor is just dying, and again, this is no longer available.

Wish I could be of more help.
