Is the motor making any sounds at all? If so, avoid trying to make the machine work as it could permanently damage the motor. The cause may be that old oil has dried and is preventing the parts from moving, so the machine has seized.

With a lot of patience, about $10 in supplies, and a hairdryer, the issue can usually be resolved.

What can cause a Pfaff tipmatic 1027 sewing machines to stop

I just looked up the manual for this machine and didn't see anything that is similar to what you are describing. I do know that some of the newer machines (after 1960) have a fuse that would protect any electronics or sensitive motors. I've also had a motor just flat die, but that wouldn't explain why the light isn't working.
here's the manual, in case you need it. I would take the machine in and have it looked at. If it's something simple, I would have all the belts replaced and have it lubed and oiled and the timing checked while in.$FILE/Pfaff%201025-1027%20Tipmatic%20x%20%20.PDF

Hi. I believe your Pfaff tipmatic 1027 dates to the early 1980s. A quick check for a bobbin case (as an example) for your machine showed that carries them and other parts for your machine.

Happy Sewing!
