Is the needle in right? There is a front and back to a needle. Also is it the right needle for the machine?

SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

SOURCE: Are pfaff 1475cd sewing feet compatible with pfaff 1151 machine

Hi. Some Pfaff machines have something called an "IDT" which looks rather like a small, black walking foot behind the pressure foot, to help feed the fabric evenly. Pfaff machines with this IDT need "IDT" pressure feet. (I can't find a listing of which machines have this and which don't, so you'll have to look at your machines or check your manuals.) If both machines have the IDT, then the feet are compatible. If neither has the IDT, then the feet are also compatible.

Hope this helps!

Happy Sewing,


Robbie

Blanket stitch on Pfaff 1171


You need to check your owner's manual. Most machines of similar age do not have the blanket stitch.

Is pfaff hobbymatic a heavy duty machine?


The term "heavy duty" sewing machine is thrown about loosely lately. There are new machines (including Pfaff, Singer, etc) for sale advertised as "heavy duty," but I would be hesitant to stitch denim jean hems on them. The Pfaff 807, which appears to be an older mechanical, is probably more "heavy duty" than some newer machines on the market. However, "heavy duty" does not mean that you can sew big canvas sailcloth or heavy upholstery projects. A domestic machine (which the Pfaff 807 is) is really meant for general domestic sewing. If you want to sew "heavy duty" fabric, then look to an industrial machine. Remember that frequent sewing of heavy fabric takes a toll on a domestic machine, ie the motor, needlebar, other working parts, thus hastening the demise of your machine and the more frequent need for service & repair.

The thread from the spool breaks immediately. Does it need a particular kind?


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

Hi. I have a Pfaff Industrial Sewing machine Model nr: 38-6 and the manual got lost in the 2nd world war. I think my dad bought it in 1930. Can I still get a manual for it?


Ahh, this comes about a year after your posting. The Pfaff 38-6 is a true gem. If you have any interest in sewing, don't let it go! I have an embarassingly large number of sewing machines and kept searching for the perfect one to do medium duty sewing. I found a 38-6 on Craigslist for $40 with treadle table and grabbed it. Best thing I've ever done re sewing. It is a commercial tailor's machine made before WW2 and sews the best of any of my domestic machines. It is my 'go to' machine for all but heavy sewing when I go to my industrial machines.

As to your question about a manual, I have a German language one that is only helpful for the photos and tables. I will make a pdf for you if that would help. It uses the standard domestic 130 needles which are also the Singer 15x1 needles. Please let me know what I can do to help you preserve and use this great machine...Dave

Neddle problem


Sounds like the needle is hitting the bobbin casing. Take it out and re-seat it. Check your manual.

Machine stops sewing when I hit a thickness


it may be that your motor belt needs tighening or the belt may be damaged - you can check belt and adjust tension yourself once side cover is removed.

if you are sewing thick seams and the needle is resting on the seam as you begin to sew you may have to help the machine to get started. if the fabric is not thick it must be belt tension.
