Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2030
Machine stopped sewing and the needle bar was stuck. was basting at the time with the one stitch at a time #10 mode. removed the needle so could move the needle bar and the rotary hook now goes around in continuous one direction or the other so cannot put a needle in and it seems to rub plate as it goes around. the feed dogs still go up and down. What happened??? It this a major repair or something I can resolve or repair myself. This machine does not seem to come apart as any of my others have. Is this because it is electronic or what.
You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.
It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.
If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.
Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.
