How to Repair a Speedy Clamshell Style Foot Controller

A few years ago we posted the tutorial for how to adjust the original bakelite foot controller and since then have received many requests for how to do the same speed adjustment on the "clamshell" style foot controller, most often seen on white Featherweights, but sometimes with the black Singer Featherweight 221 & 222 as well.

If your foot controller (aka: foot pedal) seems to only have one speed - FAST... Then the following video tutorial will show you how to make that adjustment so you will have full range of speed.  From sewing slowly and carefully to speedily sewing long seams, you'll be back to stitching more conveniently in no time at all!


If your foot controller cord is removable from the machine (i.e. original black and tan Featherweights have this wiring style) and the machine has a light that flickers on and off when the foot controller is depressed then click here to follow along with our next foot controller adjustment tutorial!
