Singer 630 Sewing Machine Foot Pedal Problem

I got a Singer 630 and when I sew and press just once on the pedal, the needle continues to move up and down for at least 3 times. The pedal does not seem to respond immediately. Is this normal?

It sounds as though your foot pedal needs a visit to the repairman-might be a frayed or bent wire-which could be a fire hazard, btw.

These wonderful vintage electric Singers are absolutely the tops for reliability and beautiful stitches, but they do need occasional professional attention as time takes its inevitable toll.

Also, if you don't have a manual for your machine, you can download a free copy at:

Simply type the numbers '630' (without the ' marks) into the search box and a menu of downloads and hard copy links will come up. Choose the free download to get a gorgeous copy of your models user manual. You can also order a spiral bound reproduction hard copy if you prefer.

My experience from years ago: The foot pedal has like points in an automobile, if you take off the bottom of the foot pedal. You should see some flat metal like strips. Sometimes just a good cleaning will help! Also use a very fine grade of sand paper and very LIGHTLY go over them.


Be sure to clean them and all inside the foot pedal. Use a little alcohol make sure it dries before reattaching the bottom and or also use the "compressed" air spray that comes in a can to use for computers. Hope this helps!
