Foot Pedal is sticking and Overlock machine keeps sewing

My foot pedal seems to be sticking after I release it and keeps sewing!

If the pedal of your sewing machine, overlock machine or embroidery machine remains stuck,
you can follow the steps below to fix this problem.

Open the pedal carefully using a large flat screwdriver.

This works with many pedals, but not all. So try carefully.

Spray the moving parts with a little penetrating oil.

Reassemble the foot pedal.

Move well back and forth a few times.
