Tiptronic 2020 wont do any of the stitches. Nothing happens when I press a stitch or press the arrow. I am using a extention cord. Could that cause the stitches not to work.

As long as the extension cord is plugged into the outlet correctly
there should be no problem, it sounds like some part of the
electronics is messing up

Take it back to the Dealer.( He probably has a guarantee on the work he did). Let him show you how it works. If he won't do this then it is definitely time to find a more reputable dealer. If you paid for a repair it should have been repaired.

You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.

It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.

If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.

Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.

Happy stitching,

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Pfaff 7530/ electronic problem?

Where has it been for ten years? This could have a big affect on an electronic sewing machine.

Take the machine in to a sewing machine shop for service.

Does the Pfaff tiptronic 2020 have a needle lock?


Please explain what you are trying to achieve. The term "needle lock" is not common in sewing. There are functions that cause the needle to always stop at the top or at the bottom of the stitch--this is called needle up or needle down. There is also a lockstitch which is a chain stitch.

I have a Singer Curvy 8780. All I want to do is sew a straight stitch. What are the settings?


You'll need stitch pattern 01 in the first group after you press the utility stitch button (top button on the left of the 4 way arrow keys). Press button A (the left most up-arrow below the LCD screen). Use buttons B (move left) & C (move right) to select the needle position and D (shorter) & E (longer) to adjust the stitch length. E is the right-hand button in the group. Start with the tension set to Auto and adjust as needed based on your fabric and thread. For normal straight seams, start with the default settings.

Singer has the manual for the Curvy 8780 on the product site: http://www.singerco.com/products/1545/8780-curvy#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/089a99d1802347d9441d83e8a591e6d0db17b80c.pdf . See page 30 for the stitch pattern; page 40 starts a longer discussion of straight stitching.

I hope this helps.

How to change needle position (left, right, center)


Which stitch are you using? As far as I can tell, the Stylist 7258 only allows you to change the needle position for straight stitches. If the machine is set to Pattern 00, press the right or left buttons from the 4 arrow keys in the manual setting arrows until the needle is in the desired position.

For all other stitches, the left/right arrows adjust the stitch width. This is described on page 30 (in English) of the manual. You can download the manual from the product page under the support tab: http://www.singerco.com/products/2101/7258-stylist#type-support . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/4951b452e963a8fe1dd1fd83fbac68a35df8cf19.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

Tiptronic 1209 stitch looping intermittantly


A stitch irregularity is often caused by a tiny burr on the needle. Try this: Unthread the machine, put in a fresh needle, and rethread.

Tiptronic 2020 stitches not working.


I would call the repair shop and tell them what the machine is
doing and tell them the machine was making the stitches before
and now it's not, and ask them why is the machine messing up?
it's possible that the machine motherboard is going out or the panel
where the buttons are has gone out.
