Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2040

1 Answer

Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 just stopped working!

My Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 worked one day, the next day I went to use it, and it won't work. The light goes on, but nothing else will work. What can I do? I've had this machine for 10 years, and it's worked fine. Then I went to use it, and it wouldn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

There is a fuse in the the base plate that has blown. It is soldered in and is special fuse you won't find at Radio Shack. Unfortunatly it needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff).
Sorry for the bad news and best of luck.

My Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 does not sew.


Try unplugging the power cord from the machine, let it set for a few minutes and try plugging in again. Sometimes this will reset the machine.

My 7570 will not run, the light is on but it will not sew


Disconnect the foot control. Turn the handwheel to see if it will turn over freely. Next, power up the machine and press the 'needle down/up' button a few times.. If that works, things are looking promising and the issue is most likely the foot control. If you are able to try your foot control on another Pfaff. If your foot control is not working, most likely it will be the carbon tracer pins inside the foot control. These can be purchased for a few dollars. Skill level to fit them is moderate..... you may break the pins if you do it incorrectly. Alternatively, get a quote for a repairer to do it. Takes 5 minutes.to do.

that has probably blown. It is soldered in and needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse.

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,

Frozen Sewing Machine Arm/Pfaff Tiptronic 6270


Good morning,

A question to help determine what's happening with your machine(s).

Open the bobbin case so you can see the bobbin area. Begin by trying to turn the handwheel towards you and watch as the needle attempts to go up/down. If you cannot turn the handwheel towards you, turn it slightly backwards then forwards. Does the needle hit the bobbin case as it comes down?

If yes, your machine is out of time and will require a professional technician to repair.

If the above is not the case, there may be thread jammed behind the bobbin case or wrapped around the inner parts of the take-up lever.

Either case - a Pfaff authorized technician would be your best bet for a proper repair.

Best of luck with your machines - it's just awful to not have the at the ready for all our projects!

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette
