When I stop sewing, sometimes, but not always, my sewing machine keeps sewing even after I release my foot from the peddle. Anyone else have this problem and know what I can do??

Yes!  What machine do you have?

I've got a Singer 4166 and I've had to lift the presser foot to get it to stop. (And once, I don't know if that helped, actually.)

foot peddle problem.  there is a WeFixIt group at yahoo.groups that can help you take it apart and repair it.

Mine does this sometimes and it always turns out that it is stuck under something, like the back rail on my sewing table.  Maybe there is something stuck in the pedal.

If its a new machine (or one you arent yet familiar with) and it only carries on sewing for a second after you stop it could be a safety feature where it will only completely stop when the needle is fully up.

I guess its quite likely not this but I thought Id add something different.

I bought a Janome 4030 QDC recently.  It's the Canadian version of yours.  It's the first computerized machine that I've owned and I've found that it runs on a few stitches after I remove my foot from the pedal.  This is very annoying as my 30 year old mechanical stops immediately.  I just figured that it happens with all computerized machines.  So, I now remove it a few stitches before the end and then press the Up/Down button to advance the material a stitch at a time.  Not the ideal solution, I know, but I find it a help. Except when I want to reverse stitch to secure the end.

check your pedal. I had that problem with my old machine. It was a broken spring in the pedal that stopped it from turning off. It caught fire a little.  If it smells like burning unplug it, and get the pedal replaced. It could blow your motor.
