Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Intermittent problems such as yours can be caused by a few things. First move your machine to another area of your home to determine if it is the power in your sewing room.
Then carefully examine your foot pedal parts and cords. If you find a problem have that part replaced.
If these things don't work... take it in because it's a problem with the electronics.

SOURCE: pfaff 1222 and pfaff 1229
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: - resetting the timing
I have been an upholsterer for over 30 years, I own a Pfaff 145 and Pfaff 545. Both are basically the same. Whenever my timing is off, where the threaded needle won't connect with the bobbin thread, I have always had success in re-setting the timing by taking apart the entire bobbin case. Remove the walking foot and the plate it walks on. Remove the bobbin and dismantle everything underneath it. Keep each piece and its screws together, and remember the order in which you removed it (last goes in first, etc.)Remove any obstructions, thread, fluff, etc. Surprisingly, when you put it all back together, your timing will be back to normal. This has always worked for me, and I hope it'll work fo you.

Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.

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.
