I think that you have a faulty foot pedal, if it is under warranty or new take it back where you bought it. But, if it no in warranty there are places online to buy a new foot pedal for about $35.

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 .

Bernina 1030 starts by itself and runs very slowly some time after parking the needle at the top


This is most likely a fault in the foot control. Normally supplied with this machine is a Type 10 and this can be fixed quite easily but probably not by the machine's owner unless you have some electrical and mechanical experience.

If you have knowledge of and access to a multimeter, you can test it. What working properly, you will find the following:
Pedal released: resistance is infinite (anything around 4k Ohms or less and the machine will run).
Heel pressed: resistance is about 10k Ohms.
Toe steadily pressed from nothing to all the way down: resistance is infinite then after a small depression, jumps to about 4k Ohms steadily decreasing to zero as the pedal reaches all the way down.

Your problem, being at the point where the pedal isn't pressed suggests that there's some contamination in the pedal. It's also possible that you have a type 365 pedal (as used on the 930) and this is more likely to give this kind of trouble due to the use of carbon brushes in this foot pedal.

It may be your foot pedal needs to be replaced, it looks like there is a couple of different ones. (I looked at www.sewingpartsonline.com) and saw they start at around $20, you can call them and see which one to get or call Singer at 1-800-4singer.

How can i make the machine sew slower


The foot pedal is usually a controller. The harder you press it, the faster it will sew. Try just barely pressing on it. There is a reostat in the ciruit. It should go slower if you press the pedal lightly.

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.
