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

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: The foot control just stopped

hi.
if there is power to the machine itself then it is probably not the fuse. if the entire machine is off then you need to change the main fuse in the plug (the one you plug into the wall socket).

first, unplug the pedal from the machine and plug it back in securely again. it may have just worked loose.
if the machine itself still has power,it may be an internal fault in the pedal, but it is quite likely that there is a broken wire in the foot pedal.
this is a fairly common problem with sewing machines as the foot pedal gets moved about and has the cord wrapped up when the machine is put away. eventually this can break one of the wires in the same way that bending a paperclip repeatedly will snap it.

if this is the case then the break will almost certainly be within 1" of the pedal.
it can be repaired quite easily by cutting out the break and reconnecting the wire inside the pedal but i would not recommend trying this yourself unless you are quite confident with electrical wiring.
an electrician would also be able to test that the footpedal itself is working properly and rule out any faults with the pedal itself.

please feel free to ask for more details if you have a 240v electrical test meter and would like detailed testing instructions.

Bernina machine starts sewing anfmten stops or doesn't start at all.


Be sure that you regularly clean and oil your Bernina. If not oiled regularly, the old oil turns to varnish and actually freezes the parts. Some people believe something is wrong with the motor or foot control, when really it just needs some TLC to keep it running smoothly.

May be one of several issues--depends on the model Bernina. Could be a problem with the foot control. I had to replace a carbon brush in the foot control of my 930. (A new foot control could cost over $160!)

Sewing Foot Control Replacement

Or some machines (mostly older models, ie 830 Records) have carbon brushes on the motor that wear with age. Once they've worn down, they no longer make constant contact giving you the "intermittent" issue. I've replaced carbon brushes on some older Berninas--usually found somewhere around the motor (look for a screw or knob on the motor). You can buy replacements a lot of places. I've purchased them on eBay.

You didn't specify a model, but foot pedals are generally used by a wide variety of models of machines. Go to eBay and enter your machine's model number, and you'll probably see foot pedals for your model of machine for sale.

How do I change a pfaff 1222 presser bar lifter? I ordered a replacement part, but now I don't know how to remove it.


If you are lucky, your part will come with instructions. Each machine is a bit different but basically you have to get into the needle bar/presser foot bar area. If you are Lucky you can get to the lever assembly without having to take out a bunch of bars. But I've only ever seen that once on an industrial machine. So you take out the presser foot bar... to get to the lever. Use caution. You want to be sure you know where and how the parts fit in there. Take your time... take pics or make notes.

Good luck

I have a pfaff machine #1221. I lost the foot part that runs the machine I used for my knee or foot. I was in Katrina and grabed this machine out of the mud and water. I lost everything in my home but,...


I think you are asking were you can buy a foot control. If that is so try PD60 or brewer i think bolth of them have that part and will sell to the public.
There could be other resons why you machine is sewing slowly.
Is the handwheel hard to turn if so you could have a number of problems. If so we can go into that.
That is a good machine but realy need to have a 1222 /1221 speshalist look at it. They are very hard to find, most pfaff dealer tecks do not even know much about them.

Loose stitching on underside of Pfaff 1222 sewing machine


It is in your top threading, believe it or not. Sounds odd but it is. Try this, insert a new needle (flat side facing the rear of machine), totally rethread according to your manual or go to www.sewusa.com for a free threading diagram, make sure that your presser foot is up, now when you are totally threaded, with the presser foot still up, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, put the presser foot down and pull the thread again, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs. If that doesn't do it, I am afraid that you may need a repair shop. Good luck.

Try lowering the presser foot lever one click down (needle down presser foot up position). You maybe in the bobbin winding mode that is why it is locked up for your safety, you don't want to puncture any body part while winding the bobbin. It locks up the needle and the balance wheel while it allows the winder to spin.

Pfaff 1222 Bobbin holder stuck with thread


With power off, take the needle out and the presser foot. Remove the two flathead screws that secure the needle plate from the machine and remove the plate. You'll have a top view of the bobbin housing and see the thread that's stuck to it.
