My moms machine, the belt seems to be slipping. It will sew if you help it by turning the wheel. Will not wind bobbin. How do you adjust belt or replace?

Very possible the belt has stretched so it is slipping. Usually, there is a way of exposing the pulley on the belt. The bolt holding the pulley can be loosened, then pulled to increase tension on the belt, then re-tighten the bolt. You may find more information by searching the information for your make/model machine.

How do i change the belt on my treadle singer sewing machine?

On a treadle sewing machine usually there is no adjustment on the tightness of the belt so you have to shorten it. There will be a metal clip holding the belt together and you can remove and cut the belt shorter and then put it back together. Be very careful to not cut too much off. Probably be a good idea to trim it a very little at a time.

I suggest taking machine to your local dealer. This machine, to my knowledge, does not have a belt as it is programmable. Jimmy

Belt Slipping

If the belt is slipping then it is out of timing and needs to go to the shop.

Pfaff 1222 belt

Hi - a few suggestions:
  1. May just need a good thorough service - generally a good idea to have it completely gone over - by an experienced Pfaff tech - every year or 2. Internal parts can dry out and simply get jammed.
  2. The timing could be off - again an experienced tech can take care of.
  3. The cam-stack (the part that actually makes your stitch formations) may have cracked. At the age of your machine, this isn't uncommon.
At the age of your machine, many other owners actually have it "rebuilt" by an authorized Pfaff service person. This model is one of those that's worth the investment compared to buying a new machine of the same caliber/quality.

If you are comfortable removing the top cover, you may be able to look at the internal parts to see if anything is broken. This will at least give you an idea of what may be happening.

Many authorized techs will not charge you to look at the machine and give you a quote. We'd suggest calling a few sewing machine stores in your area. Don't hesitate to ask friends for their recommendation of a good service person.

Hope this helps - please don't hesitate to respond if you need further info or clarification.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

Changing Pfaff 1222 sewing machine belt

Have a look at this: remove the top cover and have a look (don't put your fingers in !) at the plastic gear in the middle of the mechanism (left side of he selection keys). It often cracks and then the motor is able to turn the whole mechanism for part of the circumference of this gear and when it passes on the crack, it locks or slows down until the crack is passed. You need to have it changed if this is the case.
