You have to raise the presser bar lifter to the "A" position (highest position) to disengage the machine and set the machine to "bobbin winding" mode.

How do I engage the bobbin winding gear for Pfaff 7570?


To disengage the needle while winding a bobbin do the following: the handwheel on the right end of the machine has an inner knob. hold the outer rim of the handwheel stationary as you rotate the inner knob counterclockwise. Also make sure the bobbin winding peg is pushed over to the right and the bobbin is seated on the peg.

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.

How do I time my Pfaff 1222E. The niddle hits the bobbin holder rather than the hole in the bobbin holder


I could write up the procedure but it would be too much for me to type in. Or you can purchase the 1222E Repair Manual and download it. It's pretty easy to work on as long as you have similar tools to clearances.

Cannot turn the balance wheel - new machine to me. Pfaff 1222E


You have to lower the presser foot by one click to release it from bobbin winding mode. This mode is the same as needle down while presser foot is up so you can turn your work when it needs to go a different direction.

1222e has loose lower shaft that drives the feed


You can buy the service manual from eaby or you can download it from sewingwishlist.com in pdf format. Once in a while my 1222SE would act up. It's been really good having a service manual when you need it. As far as I know all the gears can be easily replaced by loosening it's flathead setscrew.

PFAFF 1222E Sewing Machine (~1977). Mechanically Locked-up


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.

My bobbin mechanism has stopped turning on both a 332 and 1222E - thereby locking up the machine - is there an fix that I can do myself?


Is your presser bar lever all the way up to the 2 o'clock position? If so you are in "StopMatic" mode which is for bobbin winding. Place the presser bar at the 3 o'clock position to engage the machine for operation.
