Unfortunately, this is most likely a computer board issue and there's just no way to predict if/when a board will go bad.
Your only option at this point is to take it to an authorized Pfaff dealer. If the person who serviced it was an authorized Pfaff tech, take it back to them. If not, do take it to a Pfaff dealer - non-Pfaff authorized techs are not trained on the machines.
Sorry I can't give you a simpler answer, but until this is corrected, your machine won't work properly.

Remove the top cover (grasp and lift straight up), spray with "Tri-Flow, liberally inside. Pay attention to the right 1/2 and behind the front dials.
In Front, each dial has a small square opening on the side, use the tube included with the "Tri-flow" to squirt lube inside them. DO NOT use WD-40.
Run the machine daily for 5-10 minutes (set the dial "C" [top front that goes up to 8] to 0 also set the dial on top of the case to 0. Move the Zig-Zag lever (upper right) from 0 to 4 and back again. Respray with Tri-flow. After a couple of days, if it is still stuck place a hair-dryer or light nearby to warm it up to skin temp.
Between the temp and the oil, it should begin working.

You dont state what model of machine this is, however I have come across this problem mainly on Elna computerized machines and it has been exclusively due to failure of the driver chips on the processor board that control the stitch length stepper motor. You can confirm this by checking whether you can vary the stitch length as well as just the forward/reverse. Same applies to Bernina models, but I dont know about others. Either way, you need to have it checked by your tech.
