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.

I have a pfaff 1222E machine and it is sewing very slowly, is there only one speed?


Most likely is is seized due to lack of regular oiling. If this is the case, AVOID trying to run the motor until the issue is addressed or the motor may be damaged.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Pfaff 1475 manual


Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

Also see this Youtube video showing how to insert the bobbin after threading.

My pfaff 1222e isn't working the motor runs but the needle doesn't move ~ the knob at the end of the machine won't turn at all


Check for thread jams... hopefully that's the problem and not a bent shaft in the thing.

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.

Pfaff 1222E machine not working right


Skipped stitches means a bent or dull needle or improper needle for the fabric being sewn. Try a new needle of the correct type for the material being sewn. If this doesnt correct it, then it will be a timing or needle to hook problem and should go to a qualifed dealer for repair.

I need a service manual for Pfaff model 1222e


You can download it from PFAFF service manuals in PDF formats. It may not mention an E or an SE after the model #1222 because the difference is just the motor rating and different feet it came with, the rest are all the same.

Can you get me a Pfaff 1222E motor please? Th


You will need a Pfaff dealer or go direct to the manufacturer or even go on ebay and try and purchase a similar model which may be cheaper thanh a new motor and you can then swap motor over.

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.
