Make sure your tension is set on 5 and you don't have dirt stuck in your tension unit.

SOURCE: where are the oil holes

There are no oil holes in a 1222e. I apply a light oil to the inside of the bobbin case and where you clip the bobbin in the machine. I also take off the top and drop a light oil on the moving shaft. I was told no other lubrication was needed by the owner.

SOURCE: Pfaff Creative Vision embroidery/sewing machine says motor overload then shuts down

I had the same problem and it was my power supply. I've had more than my share of problems with this machine and it's only 3.5 years old. Good luck.

I have a pfaff 261 when the knee pressor is engaged the motor runs but the needle doesn't engage. If i turn the wheel by hand the needle will engage.


First, stop running the motor if the machine is not operating. Most likely the old oil has stuck things together. Continued operation of the motor in such condition could burn up the motor or break a gear.

My pfaff 1229 sewing machine has locked up


Perhaps the manual will help:

PFAFF synchrotronic 1229 Instruction Book

Most times, when a mechanical machine locks up, it is because it has not had regular cleaning and oiling. The old oil has solidified, turned to glue, and stuck the moving metal parts together.

This may be helpful (although not your model, the oiling and heat instructions would be similar):

Pfaff 297-1 sewing machine runs very slow.


Your machine appears to be mechanical, not computerized. If so, more than likely your machine needs a thorough cleaning and oiling.

Might be best to take it for a standard service.

If you have the patience and time, you can try fixing it yourself. Consult your owner's manual, clean as instructed, and using Fresh good quality sewing machine oil, apply 1-2 drops as directed.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

In the future, be sure to clean and oil regularly (every 40 hours of sewing, every 6 months if not in use). Use ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine oil, applying 1-2 drops of oil each spot. Consult the owner's manual for instructions.

I have pfaff 2046 and the bobbin case will not face upwards. it is tilted to right side a little


Have you got your bobbin case and the area around it cleaned? This sort of thing often happens because there is a bit of lint stuck in the bobbin mechanism. Also, oil it! All sewing machines need a bit of a lube, even the new computer driven ones.

Where can I find a manual for and old Pfaff sewing machine?


I can only find manuals up to 91 and 130 and up. Perhaps you can look at the pictures on the manuals and see which one looks most like yours. Pfaff manuals are very difficult to find.

Where do you oil the PFAFF Synchrotronic 1229?


1229 or majority of PFAFF's needs to be oiled in the bobbin cage and nowhere else.If you start oling the gears lint will build up and slow your machine down. So only apply a few drops where where the bobbin is attached to.

Where do I find replacement screws for a Pfaff 130


A local sewing machine center will have your screw if not exactly they will have a similar size and pitch of the screw threads. 99% they will have something similar even though it's not the same brand.

Hello, I have bought a PFAFF 213 sewing machine with a jammed shaft. I have oiled the machine, but the needle won't move up and down. The machine is very clean inside, indicating that it has been used...


Hello,
I did fix the jammed shaft - simply by applying some tenacious oil and letting it sit overnight. It is now a fully-functioning machine!

Thanks for your ear and your interest,
Cathy
