Probably the belt tension needs adjusting, it is slipping like a car fanbelt and needs the same relative "give" when correctly tightened.
Remove the side cover where the handwheel is and loosen the motor fixing to adjust and increase the tension on the belt ....needs some slack, if you can move the belt 10mm with light pressure then it will be fine NOT TOO TIGHT or you will overload the motor. NOTE: If the side panel is not easily removed, ie 2 piece casing split in the middle, take it to a service centre or risk breaking the casing trying to get in....if it is more than a few years since last service, let someone do it all and get a sweet machine back, with no risk for not a whole lot of time or money

Speak to the Pfaff dealer where you bought it and tell them....they will probably arrange a replacement with little fuss.

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Pfaff 7550 pressure foot


The presser adjustment is usually above the presser foot near the top of the machine.

It can be a post on the top of the machine, a chrome screw on the top of the machine.

Check with your Pfaff dealer.

I use the walking foot for this technique...no puckers if the quilt is first basted.

Hi there,
I have a Pfaff Expression which went the same way, but showed the error message "WD".

My dealer advised me to change the light bulb, which I've done, and since then its been fine.

Hope this works for your too.

All the best.
