Pfaff 3.5 was working fine,suddenly thread is bunching/getting caught under plate.Thread goes around the bobbin ok,when gets near to needle gets stuck on hook on right side.Any idea how to fix please?

Just guessing. You might try :
Installing a brand new needle
tightening the top tension a bit

If it continues to be a problem, most likely the machine is out of time and requires adjustment. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My Pfaff P3 just jammed in mid stream. I cannot move the wheel. What can I try?

Try removing the bobbin case from the machine. That will usually work for me.

Please what do i have to do to fix my machine?

Take your machine in for service. As long as there are threads stuck in the machine, it will never perform satisfactorily.

What is problem with PC-Designer. I am trying to send from computer to 7570 Pfaff and it gives an error of "Floating-Point error: Stack Under" I don't know what that means nor do I know what to do.

When it comes to machine errors the mfg is the best to talk to. Call thier customer service if there's a phone number. If not, do a search on the internet for the name of the mfg (manufacture). Email customer service. Have the model and year of when the sewing machine Was made.

How to open the pfaff synchotronic 1229

Do you mean taking off the travel cover and flip open the cover? Lift the handle to get it straight up. Press the latch in the center of the top on the front of the cover and let the lid tilt forward as far as it will go. Lift off the carrying case cover (sides and back). Then press the latch again and flip the lid completely down.

The accessory box needs to be accessed by reaching under the detachable work surface and swinging to the left. Then swing the bobbin holder to the rear of the machine. Lift up the work surface and open the lid to the box.

VSM Group now owns this Pfaff line and has the manual available here: . The direct link to the manual is$FILE/Pfaff%201229%20Synchrotronic%20x%20.PDF . See page 1 (page 5 of the PDF) for pictures of opening the cover on the machine.

I hope this helps.

Always goes out of tome how do i time it

Do you mean "going out of time". Are you sure that it is going out of time. The Pfaff 2030 don't come out of time very often. If it is I recommend taking it in to fixed, there are some gauges you realy should have to do it right. That machine should only need a clean and service once a year and be good. If there are more problems than that and your teck can't fix it find a new teck. That is a great machine.

Random error messages

It is a signal that one of the computer boards may be going bad. It would be best to take your machine to an authorized Pfaff technician to diagnose. While your neighborhood sewing machine repair person may be good, they may not be trained specifically to deal with Pfaff computer issues.

At this point, you can continue sewing (over-riding the message) but eventually it will likely worsen.

You can locate your nearest dealer through Pfaff's Dealer Locator. If you do not have or prefer to not use your local dealer, please respond to this with a request for a referral and we'll do our best to find a good tech near you.

Happy stitching,
