Any sewing machine dealer should be able to order this instruction manual for you. should take about a week to get and cost less than $20.

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):

The stich bottons do not lock in on my Pfaff 1229

It's possible the Automatic Mechanism was previously removed and wasn't installed correctly even though it may appear that it's secured to the chassis. If you're a DIY person you can download the factory repair manual available around the internet. Several parts and repair manuals are available in ebay using it's search engine.

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.

Pfaff 1222 and pfaff 1229

Have a certified repairman look at the power board in the machine. The power supply circuits are broken on the board itself. Can be repaired with wire and solder. How do I know? Just fixed my wifes 1229 that had the same problem.

P.S. New boards are NOT available from PFAFF or anyone else
