The timing of my Pfaff select 3.0 was off, just got it back from servicing. Only 20 minutes into using it, happened again... how can I fix this myself without sending away again?

You may have a worn bearing or a slipping gear position (missing or sheared key on a shaft) in the gearing between the upper and lower stitching drives. The service folks should warranty their work--be sure to mention that they just serviced the machine for the same problem.

Pfaff 2170 main motor blocked;Tried again, same message. It works fine for five or 10 minutes, then stops and message comes up. after overnight rest, same thing happens. tension, cleaning is fine.


Take it back where it was serviced and tell them they did not fix the problem. They should either repair it or give you your money back. If the motor is having issues, there could be something seriously wrong.

Needle holder will not move up & down needle, machine is seized.


I would check for thread wrapped around the bobbin holder again. If it is a recurring problem, then there is another problem causing it. Take it back to your servicer and ask them to look deeper for the real issue.

There is a fuse in the the base plate
that has probably blown. It is soldered in and needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff). Sorry for the inconvenience, hope you are back to enjoying your Pfaff machine real soon.

Pfaff 360 automatic slows and stops after only minutes of use


Pfaff 360's don't like to sit, they like to drink. . .. oil.
Set top knob "C" to 0
Right top (zig-zag knob) set to 4, lever below but on the same dial points straight down. Set stitch length to 4. Run 5 minutes medium speed.

After that lift off the top cover and spray inside with "Tri-flow", then run a hairdryer on it for 20 minutes to warm up or set near a warm lamp overnight. Run daily 5-10 minutes and exercise the right knob between 0 and 4 (zig-zag). It should come back to working with oil, time, and heat.

Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 just stopped working!


There is a fuse in the the base plate that has blown. It is soldered in and is special fuse you won't find at Radio Shack. Unfortunatly it needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff).
Sorry for the bad news and best of luck.

Pfaff 1222 frozen 20 mins after I start using it


My mother has had a Pfaff 1222 for 40 years and loves it. Take yours to a new/different repair shop or find an authorized place for an overhaul. It's not a lemon, just poorly maintained. you have a problem the service people just haven't figured out yet.  If you have taken the same machine to the same people with the same problem more than once and they tell you it's a different cause every time, they are not competent. Also check the owner's manual for any tips.

Pfaff 1222 and pfaff 1229


Have a certified repairman look at the power board in the machine. The power supply circuits are broken on the board itself. Can be repaired with wire and solder. How do I know? Just fixed my wifes 1229 that had the same problem.

P.S. New boards are NOT available from PFAFF or anyone else

Did the machine get dropped, or otherwise roughly handled? Or have a rough, bumpy ride back home, etc? That could explain why it's not working correctly.
