COVID-19, Deliveries continue but possible delays.

This part is called a capacitor or often called a condenser, its is used inside the foot control of a sewing machine, or its motor or inside the off/on switch. From time to time it will burn out and need to be replaced, usually when it burns our you will get a strong smell with a puff of smoke.

We will not list the machines this will fit as there are thousands, if you need advice please call us.

This capacitor is approx 17mm x 10mm x 4 mm deep. It most probably will not look the same shape as the original one you need to replace, but it will do the same job when fitted correctly.

Also please note, because this part is now not manufactured by a sewing machine manufacture it is sourced else where and may have shorter leads than the image or original. The short lead type is ideal for fitting on to motor PCB's, but the leads may need to be extended for fitting into foot controls.

    Good service. Product works fine,but as stated in other reviews had to lengthen connections. Easy if you can use a soldering iron.

    Wow, so fast delivery-foot pedal hardly had time to cool down before replacement capacitor arrived.
    So easy to replace-well getting into the foot pedal was a bit frustrating those rubber
    feet really make a tight fit for the base.
    But all done and stitching away.
    Many Thanks

    It replaced a burnt out capacitor perfectly. Just a matter of soldering 2 wires onto the stubs of the old one. The biggest problem was getting the containing plastic box back together and in place in the machine.

    Solved the problem when the my ( previously my Mums ) singer 306k started working at top speed on its own ! Although it does not appear the same as the original capacitor, it fits fine, works perfectly and is an easy fix, which I managed myself. On initial inspection, I thought the wires may not be long enough. They don't wrap around the terminals the way the originals do but do reach sufficiently. All in all a very easy fix.

    My ancient Singer suddenly went crazy, whizzing off at high speed on its own and smoke pouring from the foot pedal. I googled the issue and a lady who had exactly the same problem said she had spoken to someone from your company who had told her it was the capacitor. When she replaced it the machine was as new. So I duly ordered a replacement, which arrived very quickly, and my machine is now back to its old self too. Huge thanks. I will definitely use you again if needed.
