Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Pfaff 1469 sews intermittantly. Footpedal connection seem plugged in properly.

It has been serviced several times but comes back with same problem. I t seems to happen at any time. Has been getting worse and I would say is now unuseable.

    It starts, sews beautifully , then after awhile stops. It rests then wiill again respond to the footpedal. To me this indicates an electrical problem somewhere. Today after not being used for 2 years it is humming along beautifully after 15 minutes. Hubby services my other machines. (Gammill with computer).

If you've had the machine serviced several times and it come back
with the same problem then the machine wasn't fixed.

Could be a couple of things:

  1. Foot control is bad - take foot control to your local Pfaff dealer to try on one of their machines. If their machine won't run either, it's the foot control and you can look into repair/replacement.
  2. Machine has a short or some type or computer board problem - take machine to local Pfaff dealer and try with one of their known working foot controls. If the machine still doesn't work, your dealer will need to diagnose what is wrong.
Hope this helps.

Happy stitching,

SOURCE: the footpedal in my 1209 PFAFF gets hot when I sew.

If your machine is turning easily the following applies.
This is a carbon pile foot control (Not Electronic) and when in use for an extended period of time(like doing embroidery,piecing quilts) the foot controller will get hot. There's nothing you can do about this except wear shoes.
If your machine is not turning freely, then if needs to be seen by a technician to find out why.

SOURCE: Needle timeing is out

The timing is set at the factory. If the threads are not hooking together, then perhaps try one of three things.

1. remove the thread, and run the machine at full speed for three minutes or more. This warms up the hardware, loosens gelled up oil, and get's all the parts in allignment.

2. (and 3.) Check the thread tentions. On the top thread, it will be a dial with numbers, over a spring and two plates that the thread runs through. On the bottom, it's a tiny screw on the side of the casing that the bobbin sits inside.

If the machine sews loose threads, then tighten these, a bit at at time, and if the machine jams up with a knot of thread at the needle, then loosen these. I believe that if the sewn threads are loose at the top, the bobbin tention neeeds tightening, and if the sewn threads on the bottom are loose, then the top tention dial needs tightening.

Cheers.

What is the value of a Pfaff, Creative 1469, please. Thanks.


Depends on a lot of things including the visual and physical condition of the machine, its features, how it's been maintained over the years, the accessories included, the desirability of the machine, and location of the machine. Best way to find out is check with a sewing repair shop or search for machines for sale or recently sold on the internet, ie eBay...

Pfaff creative 1469 runs only when plug from foot is manipulated. How to test if problem is plug or plug hole?


It is probably the cord. Sometimes the springs in the socket in the base plate of the machine are loose and can be bent back into place.
