I have a Riccar 9900 sewing machine and the foot pedal

Customer Question

Hi, I have a Riccar 9900 sewing machine and the foot pedal has stopped working, the electrical supply is still functioning as the light still comes on but when the pedal is pressed the machine won't respond, the drive belts are all still intact so it doesn't seem to be a mechanical fault with the machine itself...I'm stuck, any ideas?! Thanks

Hi, I'm sorry to hear that,
how old is your sewing machine and also did it fail while using the machine or just wouldn't work one day when you tried it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Michael, yes I was using it. It is old (about 30yrs) but is in very good condition and has been well looked after (oiled etc). It belonged to my mother and has served me perfectly thus far..Thanks for your help, Jennie

Thank you Jennie,
This basically as you might suspect a failed pedal unit.
If yours has a plug on it you can replace this yourself, but if not it might be best to have this done by a local shop.
Most vacuum cleaner repair shops also make repairs on sewing machines;-)
If your plug does plug into the sewing machine, you can get a replacement from here.
