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.

    I am very pleased with this product. It was a wee bit fiddly to fit but it was exactly what I had ordered. Also, I was very impressed with the prompt service.

    You do not get what is shown in the picture so do not bother ordering it unless you are prepared to do some soldering or have a drop in unit

    (STAFF- Product information on web site does state that the capacitor will most probably not look the same shape as the original one you need to replace, but it will do the same job when fitted correctly)

    Didn't solve dead foot controller problem I have with a 1956 99k machine. Guess need to try replacing whole controller when have time. Pity as have done this repair before on a Singer 449, and while fiddley due to the pins issue, it worked fine.

    Note: the pins on the capacitor supplied are a lot lot shorter than the ones in the picture - barely the height of the capacitor itself and obviously more suited to putting on a PCB.

    I was a bit concerned when my foot control of my Singer Starlet began to over-heat and gave out some smoke. However, not to worry as this is a drop-in replacement part for the burnt-out capacitor and my control is now working like new.
