SOURCE: My pfaff 1222e isn't working the motor runs but the needle doesn't move ~ the knob at the end of the machine won't turn at all

Check for thread jams... hopefully that's the problem and not a bent shaft in the thing.

Pfaff 1371 pressure foot won't come down on it's own


I just addressed this issue with my 6110. There is a spring in the shaft for the pressure foot. Over time the white grease that lubricates the spring and the plastic piston at the top dried up, gumming up the works. I took it all apart, cleaned out the bad (now hard grease), re-greased and put it all back together. Works like new. I used a lithium grease as it is easy on plastic parts.

I've just bought a Pfaff 1471 and it has "locked-up"... the needle won't go up and down and the hand-wheel won't move. Help please! :)


Do you have a bunch of material and thread stuck in the feed dog? Sounds like. This will sometimes happen. I'm afraid the only thing you can do is carefully work with a seam ripper or small scissors to get it all out. Be careful working. You will damage this part of your fabric, but you can take the seam allowance in a small bit. You will probably have to remove fabric & thread from underneath, through the bobbin area, too.

Once you have all of this cleared, the needle and wheel will turn. I suggest you try and take the needle out of the shaft and try pulling it out of the fabric before you start your work, too. That way, you won't risk breaking it and have a piece fly off at you.

It's frustrating and will probably make you curse at the machine-it's happened to everyone who sews at one time or another, and will happen again, I'm afraid.

My machine jammed up with some thread under the fabric but nothing by the bobbin. but the needle won't move it just hums when I try try to sew.


If you can't turn the handwheel, then there is thread jamed up in the hook. You can try to rock the handwheel back and forth to try to get the thread out. If you do get it free, try to sew with it. If it won't sew properly you might have a damaged position finger or it's out of time. You'll need to take it to a PFAFF dealer.

Where are the oil holes in a pfaff 1222e sewing machine


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.

Pfaff 2058 Voltage switch


There is a small clear plastic piece blocking the switch that must be removed, then use a small flat screw driver to flip the switch, you can throw away the small piece, it is only needed for shipping.
good luck!
