SOURCE: Prop spins slow on any speed on the foot pedal

There is a good chance that the control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice. When the control board goes out, some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

Hello Jim. You have lost your power some where. Start with the wire & terminal connections to the battery. Open the bottom of the foot pedal and check the wiring connections there. Note be very careful here for you have the battery still connected. You may have a fuse in line some where blown. You can check for voltage with a VOM(volt meter) on the wire terminals. Good Luck.

SOURCE: model sp 70. When

The co-pilot control could be faulty, supplying full voltage to the motor with reverse polarity. Try to check, or have someone check the voltage out of the control to see if it's reversed. If it is, the control is bad. The other scenario might be a connector that came loose, and was accidentally connected with reverse polarity, but that's a long shot and guess. Since there is no control over the voltage, I would suspect the co-pilot remote circuit or control first. That seems like it would be the most likely suspect culprit. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Yes this sounds like the remote add-on is having issues, or the receiver portion of the remote add-on at least. Hopefully it is still under warranty and you can get it replaced at no cost.

Home Audio system MS9825 The remote became corroded and we ordered a new reconditioned one which still doesn't work. Can you help or can we order a new remote from you?

You bought a "new" reconditioned remote and it doesn't work?

You should send it back for exchange or refund.
I haven't encountered reconditioned remotes before. I doubt there is much profit in reconditioning remote controls when new dedicated replacements are available at such reasonable prices. Often new original remotes aren't expensive if they are available.

Machine ran on when pedal when released, pedal now no longer works and machine wont sewing more than one layer of fabric without getting jammed

How are you making it run now since the pedal doesn't work?
You probably should take it to a repairman/shop. When this happens, sometimes the pedal is shorting out and it kills the pedal and you will need to buy a new pedal. When it ran by itself, it might have either gotten a piece of material or thread caught in the shuttle or it might have knocked the machine "out of time" and you will need to have it put back in time so that it will run properly again. I don't know what the prices are in your area but I would imagine that it will all run about $125. Sometimes you can get a used pedal off ebay (check to make sure that the configuration of the plug is the same). Good Luck.

Does not run. Where can I find fuse schematic #240

A circuit breaker is recommended but not included. Do you have a circuit breaker? If there is a fuse it should be inline with the battery wire.

White 1600 SpeedyLock. Power, but foot pedal won't engage. Took foot pedal apart, mechanically looks fine-- computer board in there. Do I need a new foot pedal?

When stepping on the foot control, does the motor hum or anything? Or is dead silent? If it sounds like it's trying to do something, the serger probably needs to be serviced. If it's silent, you probably need a new foot control.
