Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2040
When I start machine needle mechanism fibrates rapidly. Will stop after a bit and sews just fine. Have had it serviced and it still does it. Any solutions?

You don't have the thread in the take up lever or it is not in the tension. Rethread it , Pull the thread through the tension assembly and
test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way. set your tension to 5 and try it.

And when the fabric is thick, you can help the machine by putting some thick fabric behind the needle, so your sewing foot is level, then you will avoid breaking the needle.

You might be in "Stopmatic" mode. Check if your pressure lifter bar is in the upper most position, if it is the machine is disengage and you are set to wind your bobbin. Lower it to the 3 o-clock position this will engage the machine and the needle will operate.

SOURCE: My pfaff Tipmatic 1151 started skipping stitches on knit fabrics using any size needle, even pfaff needles. It sews fine on non-knit fabrics using size 14 or larger needles. I have checked all of the
are you using a ball point needle sewing knit or stretch?
