Hi, My Quantum 9960, needs the bobbin refilled, but the machine shows me an icon of the foot paddle, then an icon of machine and conect? cord. The cord is connected, I've tried it 3x. Don't know what to...


Is there an up arrow in the icon you see? What you describe could be the Release foot controller pedal icon. Take your foot off the foot pedal. See the trouble-shooting page on page 102 of the manual. The manual is available from Singer here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/5b9200a32cfd31ffc30b8d29fd195a57dff4a9e3.pdf .

You are supposed to take your foot off the controller (or press Stop) after winding a few turns of thread on the bobbin. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. Then step on the foot controller or press Start. Release the foot pedal again when the machine stops winding the bobbin. See page 28 of the manual for the procedure.

I hope this helps. If you do not have the Release foot controller icon displayed, please add a longer description of the icon or indicate which icon from the trouble-shooting section of the manual that is closer to the one you see. If you have released the foot controller and the icon persists, then something may be wrong with the control pedal. A replacement control pedal is ~$35; see http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-9960-quantum-stylist-parts.aspx .

It was working fine. Then stopped. When you depress the pedal the motor idles but the needle doesn't go up and down


it's possible that the foot pedal has gone out
check to make sure the power cord in inserted into the machine correctly & also the foot pedal

Foot pedal error


Yep same thing .....the thing is possessed started running by itself when I was at the iron. Dealer said never heard of such a thing and acted like it was me. Also will not stop sewing when take foot off pedal. Dealer charged me $95 to clean machine and said nothing wrong with foot pedal. Ugh. Has anyone replaced foot pedal and found the problem to stop properly?

My juki serger mo-634de suddenly stopped working. Lights on, wheels and parts move freely, even stitching seems to work if I turn it manually, but nothing happens when I push the pedal. No sound. ...


Hi, I have the exact same machine. it sounds like the wire from the foot pedal to the machine is broken. You would still get power from the wall to the machine to light the light, but no 'gas pedal'. You could maybe get an electrian to test the connection under the foot pedal and if the wire is damaged? or maybe the part that plugs in the machine is cracked or damaged?
Good luck! Annette

I have a white quilter's sewing machine, model 1740. I cannot get the foot pedal to work. It only sews if I push the start/stop button on front of machine. How do I get the foot pedal to work?


Hi, follow the instruction below to troubleshoot the foot pedal
  • Unplug the machine plug and wall plug on the sewing machine.
  • Check the power cord for cracks, burns, or faulty contacts as this could be a possible reason for the foot control not working.
  • Open the foot control by using a knife or flat surface tool, such as a flathead screwdriver, to pry open the corner of the foot control.
  • Check the wires to see if they are disconnected; this can happen if the foot control drops to the ground. To check wires, remove the circuit board using a flat knife. Inspect the wires inside the foot control. You will see some wires that are soldered together. Check to see if there are any broken wires, as this could be the problem. If the wire is broken, clean the area to remove any debris or dirt. Remove a small amount of the insulation before soldering. Solder wires together.
  • When you are done, reassemble the foot control and make sure it's working again.

My Viking 5710 starts to sew without any pressure on foot pedal


Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!


There is no suppressor in the foot control of a 425. Only the control unit, which may need to be replaced. If the machine accelerates to full speed, it may have a problem with the "stop right" board which tells the machine whether to stop with the needle up.
You could have several problems, so go see a qualified Husqvarna repairman. You may contact Husqvarna customer service to locate the best one in your area.
