Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
I am lookin for a motor belt for a PFAFF 332 sewing machine at a reasonable price.

Hi - a few suggestions:
If you are comfortable removing the top cover, you may be able to look at the internal parts to see if anything is broken. This will at least give you an idea of what may be happening.
Many authorized techs will not charge you to look at the machine and give you a quote. We'd suggest calling a few sewing machine stores in your area. Don't hesitate to ask friends for their recommendation of a good service person.
Hope this helps - please don't hesitate to respond if you need further info or clarification.

Have a look at this: remove the top cover and have a look (don't put your fingers in !) at the plastic gear in the middle of the mechanism (left side of he selection keys). It often cracks and then the motor is able to turn the whole mechanism for part of the circumference of this gear and when it passes on the crack, it locks or slows down until the crack is passed. You need to have it changed if this is the case.

Hi - it is possible that your needle is bent. Insert a new needle and check again - if you have the same problem, your timing is probably off. You could try buying a new bobbin case to see if that solves the problem. If you have had your machine tuned up within the last year or two, I would recommend a tune-up. If you know of a reputable sewing machine repair shop or dealer, the tune up should include correcting the timing and will extend the life of your machine.

There are two parts to the sew hook on that machine. The outer part has the hook point that grabs the thread off the needle. Then there is an inner part which has a post in the center of it that the bobbin case fits on to. The inner part should be held in place with an arm that has a bump on it. It keeps the inner part from spinning around. Sometimes this arm slips loose and a notch in the inner part of the hook assembly slips out from under the knob on the arm. If this is what is happening, you need to loosen the screw holding the arm in place and reposition the notch of the inner part of the hook back under the bump on the arm. There needs to be clearance between the notch and the bump for the thread to pass between the two. And the bump should be in line with the needle when it is in its lowest position.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to take the machine in for repair.
