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.

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

How to repair a non-working foot peddle on a Singer 6215C


There are a few things you can do. If you are even a little technically savvy, UNPLUG the sewing machine then take a detailed look at the pedal cord from the pedal all the way to the machine and check for any damage, pinch points, etc. If it all looks good, you should be able to open the foot pedal to see inside. There should be a small limit switch that actuates when the foot pedal is depressed. Manually cycle the pedal to ensure that the pedal mechanism is making contact with the limit switch. Listen to the limit switch as it should click when you first engage the pedal. I cannot tell you exactly what you would have to do to replace the pedal but after you have exhausted what I have suggested, I would take it to a sew & vac shop and they can replace it for you. It should not be that expensive. You can call one or two shops and get quotes for replacing the pedal.

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?
