PfaFF 1222e timming is off

The needle is catching on the bobbin going in and coming out. I just had it cleaned last year. I would really love to fix this myself as money is tight. If anyone has instructions on how to adjust the timing I would appreciate it.

Setting time isn't as simple as it sounds. You'd have to follow a checklist first before you can do the setting. I could tell you but it is just too long to upload and don't know how I can post the img's. So my best advice is to buy the factory or generic repair manual.

    My scanner is broken so I couldn't upload illustrations from my manual,

    Timing the sewing hook:
    With the machine set for straight stitching and needle in it's central position, the point of the sewing hook should be exactly opposite the center line of the needle when the needle bar has risen 2.0mm from it's lowest point.

    Initial check:


    • Turn the master selector dial to the straight stitch and the needle position knob to the central needle position.

    • Disengage the automatic mechanism.

    • Remove the sewing foot and needle plate.

    • Turn the balance wheel to bring the needle bar to it's lowest position.

    • Push the C clamp (00870137-01) on the needle bar and tighten it's screw lightly.

    • Push the 2.0mm thick gauge blade (00870137-01) with it's cutout onto the needle bar above the C clamp.

    • Push the C clamp together with the gauge blade up against the needle bar frame.

    • Tighten the knurled screw of the C clamp.

    • Turn the balance wheel back and forth a little.

    • If there is any play at the gauge blade, repeat the above adjustment procedure.

    • Remove the 2.0mm gauge blade.

    • Turn the balance wheel in it's normal direction until the C clamp contacts the needle bar frame. The needle bar has thus risen by the amount of 2.0mm which is required to form a loop and the hook point should now be exactly opposite of the center line of the needle.

    Too bad the effort I put in here wasn't rated, I don't think they even knew someone had real answers to their question.

Where are the oil holes in a pfaff 1222e sewing machine


There are no oil holes in a 1222e. I apply a light oil to the inside of the bobbin case and where you clip the bobbin in the machine. I also take off the top and drop a light oil on the moving shaft. I was told no other lubrication was needed by the owner.

While I was sewing the machine stopped properly threading, so I tried rethreading and checking bobbin tension, but it looks like the needle is just not reaching the bobbin, so it is missing the bobbin...


Have you changed your needle? If so do a visual check on the bobbin case area.

-With the bobbin door open, so you can see the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you and you should see the needle come down and the top thread catch and loop around the bobbin thread and pull both to the top.

-If if is not, it is going to be your hook to needle timing or clearance.

When the needle is on the up movement, the hook should pass right above the eye of the needle.

Pfaff 1222E machine not working right


Skipped stitches means a bent or dull needle or improper needle for the fabric being sewn. Try a new needle of the correct type for the material being sewn. If this doesnt correct it, then it will be a timing or needle to hook problem and should go to a qualifed dealer for repair.

How do I time my Pfaff 1222E. The niddle hits the bobbin holder rather than the hole in the bobbin holder


I could write up the procedure but it would be too much for me to type in. Or you can purchase the 1222E Repair Manual and download it. It's pretty easy to work on as long as you have similar tools to clearances.

Cannot turn the balance wheel - new machine to me. Pfaff 1222E


You have to lower the presser foot by one click to release it from bobbin winding mode. This mode is the same as needle down while presser foot is up so you can turn your work when it needs to go a different direction.

PFAFF 1222E Sewing Machine (~1977). Mechanically Locked-up


You might be in "Stopmatic" mode. Check if your pressure lifter bar is in the upper most position, if it is the machine is disengage and you are set to wind your bobbin. Lower it to the 3 o-clock position this will engage the machine and the needle will operate.

PfaFF model 1222E has seized


Your "StopOmatict" must be engaged. Facing your machine (front) your presser bar lifter is at the back side of the machine. To disengage set it to the 3 oclock position or all the way down to 5 oclock. Note: don't place your finger near the needle when you do this because it will automatically pick up the bobbin thread when it's all the way up.

My 1222e is frozen


1222E/SE Has "Stopmatic" and disengages the machine for bobbin winding. You can't use the crank and needle is locked. Place your lifter bar to the horizontal level (work turning while needle is down), this will engage the machine.
