Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Lights flashing and beeping.

Every time I push the foot petal, the machine beeps and all the lights flash. There's nothing stuck inside, and the machine is clean. What's wrong?

    I took my machine with me on an airplane and now when i try to sew wit it it makes one stitch and then all the lights start flashing and it stops. I have made sure that my threads match and that everything is threaded right, as well as the BH Button being up. It is driving me nuts because I can sew with it by turning the handle, but it wont itself past one stitch.

I had a similar problem and called 1 800 4Singer. The BH lever(next to the needle) had fallen. I pushed it up and everything worked fine again. It seems if it's down the least, the machine won't work. Hope this helps.

Trying to thread bobbin and viewed manual several times. singer model 7258. screen first flashes C3 and then ][. cannot find troublr shooting codes in manual.

Why do I keep getting a C3 error (accompanied by lots of beeps) when I turn on my machine?The C3 error as well as the beeping when you turn on your machine indicates the foot control plug is not fully pushed into the sewing machine. Turn off your sewing machine and push the foot contol plug into the machine fully. Turn your sewing machine back on.

Pneumatic air foot petal

If the machine won't work with two pedals that are good then the problem isn't the foot pedal. Does the light turn on? If this is functional then you know there is "electricity" attached to it. Since both pedals aren't functional you will have to have the motor and connecting cord (inside machine) to see which is the problem. By the way; if the problem is the cord inside the machine you may not want to plug it in. You stand a chance of getting shocked. Have it checked for safety.

Hi! I have a janome dsk30 that keeps beeping with the foot control light flashing. The only way to clear it seems to be to unplug the control foot and plug in again -any ideas?

Sounds like it is getting too hot if it is OK after unplugging. Is something stuck in your foot pedal? Give it a clean and hoover as dust and threads can get stuck there. Good luck

What might cause my sewing machine to not respond when the foot pedal is depressed?

make sure the plug for the foot pedal is connected securely to the machine.
could be the plug in the machine has a problem even tho the foot petal is plugged in
could be the foot petal has gone out and needs to be checked.

My machine beeps and will not sew when the foot peddle is pushed. i checked the BH lever inside the light cover and the small black switch appears to be in the up position. any other ideas?

make sure the foot pedal cord is pushed in correctly
rethread the machine top & bobbin
clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
also clean the bobbin are for lint or loose threads
change needles

but also the foot pedal could have gone out

It keeps sewing after the foot petal is let off - sews like crazy without me touching it!

Sounds like the foot petal needs to be taken apart and cleaned. Make sure everything is unplugged. Use WD-40 on everything except any electrical parts, it has chemical  agents in it that break down the plastic after a long period of time.

Singer 7436 beeps - not working

Check to be sure the buttonhole lever is in the up position and the presser foot is down. Check feed dogs to be sure they are in the up position.
