It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

A question to help determine what's happening with your machine(s).
Open the bobbin case so you can see the bobbin area. Begin by trying to turn the handwheel towards you and watch as the needle attempts to go up/down. If you cannot turn the handwheel towards you, turn it slightly backwards then forwards. Does the needle hit the bobbin case as it comes down?
If yes, your machine is out of time and will require a professional technician to repair.
If the above is not the case, there may be thread jammed behind the bobbin case or wrapped around the inner parts of the take-up lever.
Either case - a Pfaff authorized technician would be your best bet for a proper repair.
Best of luck with your machines - it's just awful to not have the at the ready for all our projects!

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.
