SOURCE: The Pfaff 332 sewing machine is seized up

Well Wayne, If you can remove the outer cover of machine without a headache, then I would spray it with WD-40 and let it sit for a day and then try it again. It may also need to be timed.

I had the same problem and it was my power supply. I've had more than my share of problems with this machine and it's only 3.5 years old. Good luck.

SOURCE: 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

I have a pfaff 1222E machine and it is sewing very slowly, is there only one speed?

Most likely is is seized due to lack of regular oiling. If this is the case, AVOID trying to run the motor until the issue is addressed or the motor may be damaged.

Hi, I have a PFAFF Hobby 420 sewing machine. Its motor is not working and there is no service centre of PFAFF in our city. Could you please guide me opening the motor??

Maybe it just needs new carbon brushes. My Bernina 830 Record resembles the Pfaff very closely. I had issues with the motor stuttering. Changed the carbon brushes and it runs like a top!

My pfaff 1222e is running slow

1. Remove any stuck material from the feed dog, bobbin area including the hook (pointed object under bobbin). Lubricate as you go.
2. Remove top and end of sewing machine to look at the motor and belt. Place pressure on the foot pedal. Still slow?
3. With bolt attached to motor release the pressure on the belt. Now, place pressure on the foot pedal. Did you notice any increase in speed?
4. Apply pressure on the foot pedal and simultaneously adjust the motor. Adjusting means tightening of the belt and making it move in a straight line. (If it doesn't move straight it puts pressure on the motor so it will move slow.) When you have adjusted the motor to the right position the motor will be at it's highest speed.
5. If the pressure foot is the problem it will require a pro to take care of it.

A merritt sewing motor controller compatible with a Pfaff hobbymatic 807?

I wouldn't use a pedal from another machine. WHile they may do the same thing, the voltages that flow through them can be very different. Get on EBay and search for a used pedal for the right machine.

Hesitates at start

Industrial machines are usually clutch motors. Some have speed settings right on the motor. But if you want something that works more like a home machine with a variable speed control.... You might want to locate a servo motor for it...

Last year I changed the machine engine (PfaFF 1222 E). I noticed immediately that the machine sewed too slow and I thought it was a problem of the kind of engine the repairer had put into the machine. But...

If the machine did sew fast the the replacement motor, then the problem might be that the machine is getting gummed up somewhere. Pull off the top cover, remove the 5 screws from the bottom of the base plate, (4 large screws, 1 small screw), remove the base plate remove the 1 screw from the bottom of the free arm cover. Now you can see most of the moving parts. Spray a little WD 40 on all the areas that you see metal to metal rubbing together, both on the bottom side of the machine and the top side. Don't flood the machine and stay away from the motor area. Plug the machine in, lay it on it's back and run it full speed, or at least till it runs full speed. After you free it up, blow out the machine with compressed air, and reoil with tri flow all the areas again. Run the machine again, and you've started your own tail gate repair shop.
