    I purchased my Singer sewing machine some 30 years ago and when it stopped working I never thought I would be able to get replacement parts, what a refreshing find to see my machine is still listed and a replacement was available. Ordered and delivered pronto. The only thing I would request is that instructions on how to rewire were included but the instructions online were very clear and my machine is now working perfectly once again, hopefully for a good few years to come. Well done Singer Sewing machines.

    Wow, I am pleased that I bought the foot control. It rejuvenated my favourite sewing machine. Can I suggest that with the purchase, instructions for wiring are included saving have to look on the web. I would like to thank the person on the end of the phone line, to save me the time looking he emailed me the instruction. Sorry cannot remember his name. Thank you once again

    This is a much better and more comfortable foot control than the original one. Makes control of the machine better hence sewing easier for a beginner. Fortunately as a retired electronic technician and Radio Amateur I knew how to wire it up.

    This new foot control is wonderful, so easy to fix - my husband did it in 10 minutes
    Now I have absolute control over the speed of my sewing and it is great
    My old foot control must have had something wrong with it as it just raced off at a 100 miles a minute as soon as I put my foot on it. So pleased I chose to use the Singer product, it was delivered quickly and well packaged, just a shame the instructions weren't included with it.

    Very pleased with this well produced foot control. I do however feel that it would be of great help to produce a pamphlet to explain how to assemble.

    1 The best way to attach the wires to the clips

    2 To be made aware that the only way of attaching the clips is by taking out two screws and dismantling

    I congratulate those who completed the task in 20 minutes. After working out what to do it was relatively easy. Well pleased with the end result, given a fantastic sewing machine a new lease of life.

    Foot control arrived within 1 1/2 days of ordering. very pleased. I picked up that there were no wiring diagrams provided from other reviews so went to the Singer web site and downloaded the instructions. Very easy to fit, albeit that the cable connectors were a bit fiddly to fit. Very pleased with the product that has now breathed new life into a 50 year old sewing machine. They don't make them like that anymore!

    Overall rating

    Excellent service and product.
    Considering that I have quite bad arthritis in my hands, I did not have any difficulty wiring the new foot.
    Either a small pair of pliers or preferably crimping pliers are needed to attach the spade terminals to the wires, but otherwise there are no problems whatever.
    Since live and neutral are not marked you have to assume that it doesn't matter which way round the wires go.

    My Mum's old Singer sewing machine suddenly started going by itself - we wondered what on earth the noise was! (I know, I should have switched it off at the wall!!).
    Reading your useful site we found the likely culprit was the foot controller and after checking with one of your engineers we bought this Universal Foot Controller.
    It arrived just a few days later.
    My husband didn't take long to fit it but he said it was a bit fiddly. No instructions came with it and finding the instructions on the web site was not intuitive even after reading comments on other reviews! Some of the links on the site weren't working.
    The new controller looks nothing like the original but works perfectly. I am delighted I can continue to use my old but very competent machine.

    The advice to buy this cheaper universal product was good but because of the age of the machine required some soldering etc to make it connect. This was not a problem for us but for some users could have meant the item didn't work for them. My machine is thirty years old and the connections may not be compatible with newer connections.

    When the part arrived the box had been damaged in the post but after a couple of emails and, I had to send pictures of the damage, the new parts arrived within 36hrs and fitted in under an hour but I'm still waiting for my trousers to be hemmed!!!
    I agree that some instructions would have been helpful. It's OK saying you can find them on the website but I wouldn't have thought to look there. Treat us as stupid and all will be well.
    Five stars anyway and thanks to your very helpful staff.

    Fitted and works fine. However, as no instructions were present in the delivery box, at first I mistook 2 switch/resistance block fixing screws as terminals. Also feel cable crimps were flimsy and should have been of the compression type used in conjunction with a crimping tool. Nevertheless, still happy with purchase! ***STAFF COMMENT*** FITTING INSTRUCTION SCAN BE FOUND IN THE FAQ's SECTION:
