SOURCE: I can't get a bobbin to wind on a pfaff 1222E

You have to raise the presser bar lifter to the "A" position (highest position) to disengage the machine and set the machine to "bobbin winding" mode.

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.

SOURCE: I have a Pfaff 1222E sewing machine which needs a new motor

Good for you, to repair a great machine instead of buying some more modern, disposable machine!
I found a generic motor that will fit your machine at http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/partsDB/index.php?function=detail&recordID=185. Free delivery within the UK, but that doesn't help much, does it? There's several places in the U.S., like http://www.a1sewingmachine.com/parts.html http://www.sew4less.com/QuickSearch.php http://sewingpartsonline.com/
You'll probably need to look for a generic motor for your Pfaff, but they should be out there.
I did check eBay; they do have generic sewing machine motors, but unless you're very experienced with eBay, I'd be very careful there.
Check with your local sewing machine dealer/repair place (even if they don't carry Pfaffs). Maybe they can help.
Good luck--I wish I could be more helpful, but let me know if anything I've sent helps, ok?

SOURCE: I need a service manual for Pfaff model 1222e

You can download it from PFAFF service manuals in PDF formats. It may not mention an E or an SE after the model #1222 because the difference is just the motor rating and different feet it came with, the rest are all the same.

Rabi. Do you mean Hitting on the bobbin case/shuttle? That is a timing issue.

My pfaff 1222e isn't working the motor runs but the needle doesn't move ~ the knob at the end of the machine won't turn at all


Check for thread jams... hopefully that's the problem and not a bent shaft in the thing.

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.

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.

1222e has loose lower shaft that drives the feed


You can buy the service manual from eaby or you can download it from sewingwishlist.com in pdf format. Once in a while my 1222SE would act up. It's been really good having a service manual when you need it. As far as I know all the gears can be easily replaced by loosening it's flathead setscrew.

I can't get a bobbin to wind on a pfaff 1222E It appears that a gasket is suppose to be pushed up against a gear with small teeth, but it does not move. Can it be that the gasket needs to be replaced?


You have to raise the presser bar lifter to the "A" position (highest position) to disengage the machine and set the machine to "bobbin winding" mode.
