J have had my white Featheweight for about 3 months and purchased it from a reliable source so I think my issue is "user related". When I start sewing with needle down and holding thread (as was suggested here on the VSMS) and I press the pedal, I get a hesitation and have to turn the hand wheel to get it started. Is this normal for the white FW? Also, when I press the pedal, it takes off 90 miles per hour...I can not get it to start slow and speed up gradually. Am I doing something wrong?
I don't have the same problem with my black FW?
What am I missing? Thanks!!
