Can't open Pfaff Select 3.0 Sewing Machine to fix timing

I need to adjust the timing on my new Pfaff Select 3.0 sewing machine, but can't figure out how to open it up. It's got these hex-like screw heads but nothing I try in there budges it. Does anybody know the trick to opening these Pfaff machines?

Also, if anybody knows how to fix the timing on these (from the bobbin casing or from the needle shaft??), I'd appreciate it. My repair guy is out of town and I live in the Virgin Islands and can't find anybody else to fix it.

I found an electric drill with a hex bit and that did the trick!

Pfaff 3.5 was working fine,suddenly thread is bunching/getting caught under plate.Thread goes around the bobbin ok,when gets near to needle gets stuck on hook on right side.Any idea how to fix please?


Just guessing. You might try :
Installing a brand new needle
tightening the top tension a bit

If it continues to be a problem, most likely the machine is out of time and requires adjustment. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Removing top cover on pfaff creative 4.0 embroidery machine


May be, you have not the right tools to open your pfaff chassis. In your case I prefer to get support from pfaff: http://www.pfaff.com/de/692.htmlIt's a risk to open the chassis, you can't see, where it is fixed. If you try to open, the risk is high your pfaff will take damage.

How do you adjust timing on pfaff 138 sewing machine


Take the foot off the machine
Remove the needle plate
Remove the feed dogs
rotate by hand until the needle is at the lowest position
continue rotating until the needle rises 2 mm
the hook assembly should be passing exactly by the scarf of the needle
if not loosen the two screws that secure the the hook assembly and rotate the hook assembly by hand until it is exactly at the scarf of the needle and the distance between the hook and the scarf is .1 mm (almost touching the needle)
tightened the two screws, replace the feed dogs and foot and it should sew perfectly
