Kenmore foot peddle going too fast to sew

I havent used it in about two years but everything seems to be working fine, but when i press lightly on the foot peddle the machine starts running too fast to use. the thread wont even catch with each other because it is too fast. i have tried adjusting all the dials, but nothing seems to work. any help? please?

The problem is either in the foot control or there is a short in your wiring. You can replace the foot control and hope that's where the problem is or Take it to a technician to be sure..The foot control will probably cost around $30-$50.

I have a "singer" sewing machine, model 1022. Everything was working fine but now the foot pedal won't work. How do I take this apart to repair? How/Can it be repaired?


If you're unsure how to repair it, take it to a repair shop. You can cause more damage trying to fix something, plus parts may be hard to come by for the consumer.

My foot pedal doesn't work.


Have you tried using a new foot pedal? I think it would be worth the the money because moving parts tend to go bad before internal stationary ones. Amazon com Singer Sewing Machine Foot Pedal Everything Else

I was sewing everything was fine. When I changed to zig zag it also worked but, when I switched to straight sewing and pressed the foot peddle the machine began to make a beeping sound and it won't go...


If the needle was on the down position when you switched stiches, this could have caused the problem. Raise the needle completely, power the machine off for 30 seconds, then power back on... Did that fix it?
