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.

    A little tiny part has given new life to my machine of 40+ years. It was easy to order and although initially out of stock it was despatched really quickly as soon as new stock was received. Easy to fit.

    Just to say many thanks. I have my Mum' Singer Sewing Machine it's many years old. The foot pedal started to smoke and was running away very fast on it's own. Very scary. After having no luck with any New Zealand websites only being quoted :$145 plus postage and packing, for a new foot. I then found your Web site. Brilliant, well informed and told me exactly what I needed. The capacitor arrived swiftly and is now in the machine. Which is now working perfectly. Excellent.

    Many thanks

    I received very helpful advice, about the runaway behaviour of my machine, and a recommendation to buy a very inexpensive capacitor, in place of the economical foot control I was contemplating.
    The capacitor arrived very quickly, was very straightforward to fit, involving just two screw contacts, and has restored the machine to full control, and very reliable performance.
    First class service - thank you!

    I was a bit concerned about ordering this capacitor as it looked completely different to the one on my 185k model, so I phoned and spoke to a gentleman. He put my mind a rest right away and explained that the capacitor I was about to order was perfectly alright, so I ordered it. I have fitted it and everything now works perfectly.

    First time using this site but would use again. Capacitor is fine & I was assured of the correct one (confusing array out there). It arrived quickly & safely & does the job. Thank you.
