Sewing Machine Slows Down

I have a Singer 2623 machine. It starts out running OK (not really fast), but then slows down and almost stops. What could the problem be? And can I fix it myself? I have cleaned it. When it does slows down then starts going a little faster the light on machine kinda blinks? Thanks for your help!

You have a wiring problem inside the machine and need to take it to a qualified repair tech. The speed controller (foot pedal) also needs to be seen by the tech, be sure to take it with you.

The repair should include a full servicing, and the cost will run you around $150USD (£125GBP). The servicing will be a complete cleaning, oiling, and check over for other developing problems - money well spent because that is a very nice Singer model.

Do you have a plastic foot pedal? I had a similar problem, and my foot pedal had to be replaced. I found a site on the internet that sold them and received mine in a few days; it cost under $30, including shipping. The rubber thing inside it had a tear. Try googling it, to see if that could be your problem.
