Guide to threading a pfaff 1229


Hello, Sandie -

You will find several images of how to thread your Pfaff Synchrotronic 1229 sewing machine in the instruction book for the machine, starting on Pages 6 - 9 (PDF images #10 - 13) of the manual (PDF format) here:
http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Synchrotronic_1229-manual-EN.PDF
Since it is a PDF document, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader software (free), to download and save the document on your computer, and open and refer to it later.

Note: When you save the PDF document to your computer, be sure to give the file a name you can find again easily . . . something like: Pfaff Synchrotronic 1229 Manual.

Best wishes.

Thread shred. Pfaff 463. Using 120/19 new needle. And Sunguard Anti-wick UVR bonded polyester thread for marine canvas. Why is my thread shredding?


From my past sewing experience (not an industrial machine), the thread will shred if the needle/thread/fabric are incompatible. Could be the canvas is too coarse and is wearing on the thread like sandpaper. Remember, the thread/needle will penetrate over 10 times before that section of thread actually forms a stitch, so that's a lot of friction going on. In regular sewing, a top-stitch needle has a larger scarf which acts to protect the thread, however, not sure that is a choice for your machine.

Needle Jams In Bobbin Case Area pfaff 1540


First, make sure there is no debris and scraps of thread in the bobbin area. I'm sure you did that already. I assume you also tried it with another thread just to be sure. I would suspect that the timing went out of whack. The machines depend on a synchronization between the needle motion and the bobbin action underneath. I once had a Singer that slipped and I had to reset the timing. If it is the timing synch problem then it would happen consistently and not work sometimes and then not work other times. G

Hi, I have lost a small screw on the right-hand side of the needle plate. I have tried taping it but I still get a vibration, when sewing. Where can I get the right screw? Mickey


If someone you know has a screw thread measuring device. you might be able to measure the inside threads of the hole. Otherwise perhaps a parts machine purchase is in order.

Pfaff select 1540 bobbin thread jam


if there is a thread in the hook area try taking a pair of needle nose
pliers to try & get the thread out, if that doesn't work then you might
think about taking the machine to a sewing machine shop to have the
machine checked since the needle will not go up & down & handwheel

Lost manual-don't know how to thread machine


http://www.mastersewusa.com/ or try:

The threading instructions are free if they have your machine...if you want a guide book for using the machine or servicing it, then there is a cost to receiving that information.

Thread shreds with Pfaff


I have the book on that machine as well and I have had that problem. Here is what had happened to me: I was soooooo tired of that shreading thing that I took a flashlight and aimed it up the nose of the machine by the lightbulb and fould there to be a nice little rats nest wrapped around the take-up lever and the needle bar. I spent the next three hours getting to that nest with the skinniest and longest tools I could find. Oh it is was fun!
