Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2030
I have had a friend look in a Pfaff store in Germany but none of the machines there, had this particular little screw. My local Pfaff dealer has not been able to come up with one either. Help!
If someone you know has a screw thread measuring device. you might be able to measure the inside threads of the hole. Otherwise perhaps a parts machine purchase is in order.

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!

The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."
The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.
Hope this helps!

My mother has had a Pfaff 1222 for 40 years and loves it. Take yours to a new/different repair shop or find an authorized place for an overhaul. It's not a lemon, just poorly maintained. you have a problem the service people just haven't figured out yet. If you have taken the same machine to the same people with the same problem more than once and they tell you it's a different cause every time, they are not competent. Also check the owner's manual for any tips.

Good for you, to repair a great machine instead of buying some more modern, disposable machine!
I found a generic motor that will fit your machine at http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/partsDB/index.php?function=detail&recordID=185. Free delivery within the UK, but that doesn't help much, does it? There's several places in the U.S., like http://www.a1sewingmachine.com/parts.html http://www.sew4less.com/QuickSearch.php http://sewingpartsonline.com/
You'll probably need to look for a generic motor for your Pfaff, but they should be out there.
I did check eBay; they do have generic sewing machine motors, but unless you're very experienced with eBay, I'd be very careful there.
Check with your local sewing machine dealer/repair place (even if they don't carry Pfaffs). Maybe they can help.
Good luck--I wish I could be more helpful, but let me know if anything I've sent helps, ok?
