SOURCE: I can't get my Pfaff 230a to straight stitch!

The stitch selector switch is most likely the culprit. Have you tried operating the machine upside down?

SOURCE: I have pfaff machine model

Hello

It's just a fact that any machine that only does a straight stitch has a better straight stitch than any machine that will also zig zag. The more things they do, the less perfectly they'll do each one in most cases. A plain zig zag will have a better straight stitch than a machine that also does reverse-cycle stitches. The thing is that the more play they have to build into the needle area, the harder it is to keep it from moving slightly this way and that way when you don't want it to, like on a straight stitch.

You may also be having a combined problem when you're sewing very thick seams. If your entire presser foot is not perfectly flat on your item, it will not sew as well as if it were. This is even worse when you get to a junction of several seams, and your presser foot may be at an odd angle to get up and over the junction. You can use a Hump Jumper to help, or even a folded piece of something, but it's still not going to be as perfect as if you were on a completely flat surface. You can use a Sewing Hammer to pound things as flat as possible before stitching, which will help some. You may also get help with a different type of foot although it doesn't really sound like that's your problem.

If you have a control box, push the buttons so all the lights go off. Something is making the machine back-tack. I have seen the problem be a mechanical issue. In that case you would be better off taking it to the shop.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

Pfaff 360 automatic slows and stops after only minutes of use


Pfaff 360's don't like to sit, they like to drink. . .. oil.
Set top knob "C" to 0
Right top (zig-zag knob) set to 4, lever below but on the same dial points straight down. Set stitch length to 4. Run 5 minutes medium speed.

After that lift off the top cover and spray inside with "Tri-flow", then run a hairdryer on it for 20 minutes to warm up or set near a warm lamp overnight. Run daily 5-10 minutes and exercise the right knob between 0 and 4 (zig-zag). It should come back to working with oil, time, and heat.

Remove the top cover (grasp and lift straight up), spray with "Tri-Flow, liberally inside. Pay attention to the right 1/2 and behind the front dials.

In Front, each dial has a small square opening on the side, use the tube included with the "Tri-flow" to squirt lube inside them. DO NOT use WD-40.

Run the machine daily for 5-10 minutes (set the dial "C" [top front that goes up to 8] to 0 also set the dial on top of the case to 0. Move the Zig-Zag lever (upper right) from 0 to 4 and back again. Respray with Tri-flow. After a couple of days, if it is still stuck place a hair-dryer or light nearby to warm it up to skin temp.

Between the temp and the oil, it should begin working.
