I need to know how to put the hand wheel back togther so i can try the machine. PFAFF 1212


Kary, these machines have powerful motors and they can be super dangerous if not re-assembled correctly, and more damage can result on top of that. There are lots of honest sewing machine stores with qualified personnel to take care of your sewing machine repairs safely.

Hi, I have a PFAFF Hobby 420 sewing machine. Its motor is not working and there is no service centre of PFAFF in our city. Could you please guide me opening the motor??


Maybe it just needs new carbon brushes. My Bernina 830 Record resembles the Pfaff very closely. I had issues with the motor stuttering. Changed the carbon brushes and it runs like a top!

Change moter brushes pfaff 1471 model


Look on the right end of the machine for an access panel, below the hand wheel. You may also have to take the bottom off the machine. Once you are in there Look for an adjustment cam screw. completely remove that which should make your entire motor flop around. Look for other brackets and take those loose. Fish your motor out. The brushes are under a screw/cap. They are a spring and black square of graphite like stuff. Don't loose the screw or spring. While you are in there you might want to change the motor belt and or Timing Belt.

One bit of warning. If your machine has a timing belt... be prepared to have to re-time your machine.
