Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Sewing machine blocked

Suddenly my Pfaff 2044 would not let me put the needle down and up through a full cycle. Something seems to be blocking it. I cleaned it and removed stray threads, but still stuck. How can I take it apart to figure out what is wrong?

The needle on my Pfaff 2044 won't move and the wheel won't turn. What do I do?


There may be thread caught in the bobbin area which is not allowing the hand wheel to turn. Remove the bobbin case and check the hook for threads wrapped around the spindle and/or caught in the hook mechanism. A little clear sewing machine oil in a pipe cleaner is sometimes helpful in freeing threads in this area.

Bar that sewng foot is attached to for raising & lowering suddenly will not drop sweing foot all the way down to plate. Any suggestions on how to fix?


It sounds like something is blocking the lever from coming all the way down. Clean and oil. Look for bits of lint or fabric. Use a flashlight and look very carefully and you may be able to see the obstruction.

Pfaff 7530/ electronic problem?


Where has it been for ten years? This could have a big affect on an electronic sewing machine.

Take the machine in to a sewing machine shop for service.

Skipping stitches and sometime the thread breaks.


Sounds like a tension problem maybe. Too tight tension will bend, and break the needle, especially if sewing fast in free machine embroidery, in this mode, the tensions have to be looser anyway. I can't explain why the wheel flagged and stopped, but experiment with tensions first.

My Pfaff 2140 giving message main motor blocked.


I have gotten the main motor blocked message several times. When I get this, I always remove thread, both top and bottom. I change the needle too. 75% of the time my problem goes away. If the problem is not solved, I unscrew the casing in the front of the bobbin, and look for anything that might be obstructing the bobbin. While I've had lots of "blocked motor" messages, I've never had to get a tech to ook at it. Sometimes, if you leave it overnight too, the sewing machine fairy will change something and the problem will solve itself in the morning. Re-thread, re-bobbin, re-needle. to start.

You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.

It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.

If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.

Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.

Happy stitching,
