Have a certified repairman look at the power board in the machine. The power supply circuits are broken on the board itself. Can be repaired with wire and solder. How do I know? Just fixed my wifes 1229 that had the same problem.

P.S. New boards are NOT available from PFAFF or anyone else

SOURCE: The stich bottons do not lock in on my Pfaff 1229

It's possible the Automatic Mechanism was previously removed and wasn't installed correctly even though it may appear that it's secured to the chassis. If you're a DIY person you can download the factory repair manual available around the internet. Several parts and repair manuals are available in ebay using it's search engine.

They might be similar to your machine?

Blanket stitch on Pfaff 1171


You need to check your owner's manual. Most machines of similar age do not have the blanket stitch.

Pfaff 2170 will not make consistently sized buttonholes


Go to the following site regarding timing your machine. Are you placing a button in the buttonhole foot so the machine "knows" how long to make the buttonhole? If you have a button stop lever to the left of your needle bar, are you pulling it down and putting it in FRONT of the button stop so it can complete the rotation?

Where do you oil the PFAFF Synchrotronic 1229?


1229 or majority of PFAFF's needs to be oiled in the bobbin cage and nowhere else.If you start oling the gears lint will build up and slow your machine down. So only apply a few drops where where the bobbin is attached to.

Pfaff hobby 1142. only goes one way, does not complete buttonhole.


it sounds like the buttonhole mechanism is seized up or gummed up with old grease. try following the linkages for buttonhole mechanism or button to see you can locate the stuck linkage.

otherwise it sounds like a tech job.

Buttonhole on second side was only half the length of first side


Hi, did you buy the machine from a dealer - if so, I would take it back and ask them to show you how to do buttonholes again. It is also possible that, although the test buttonholes sewed out correctly, the automatic button sensor needs professional adjustment.

Before going back to the dealer, find the section in your manual that discusses buttonholes and read thru it very carefully. Pfaff machines are not intuitive, and the manual might describe a way to adjust the automatic buttonhole settings so they sew out correctly.

If you need more help, please repost and I'll try to help or put you in touch with a dealer who can help

Good luck, Ginny

Button holes


Hi

Are you using a Pfaff 7570 (or other Pfaff machine with Sensor)? If so, definitely use the sliding buttonhole foot and the sensor guide (slides below the needle plate from the back of the machine. This will keep your buttonholes consistent.

The size is regulated by the Stitch/Pattern Length button and Width button. Select the size you think you'll need (in millimeters).

Test sew your buttonhole on the EXACT same combination of fabric/layers & stabilizer that your garment is. Adjust the length/width of buttonhole if needed. I would recommend a bit wider buttonhole due to the thickness/puffiness of the fleece.

Hope this helps,
Kim
