Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2030

2 Answers

I think I need a power board because my machine keeps stopping. Have to wait to start again. Also my light is broke. I have a 1171 and wondered if parts are still available for that machine. It was my moms and she passed away years ago. Is it worth it getting it fixed or should I buy a new machine that is less complicated.

Hi, ..go for the simple first. It could be motor brushes..the next time the machine stops try turning the handwheel and see if it starts to run again. If it does, the motor brushes are worn down. It would probably be less than a 100.00 to repair it.

Good Luck!

Pfaff 1171 stops working and then runs again after cooling down for a period of time.


I've been sewing for over 30 years and I would not buy a sewing
machine that stops and has to cool down for awhile.

EMBROIDERY STOPS IN MIDDLE OF DESIGN. PRESS RUN AND IT WILL RUN FOR A SECOND AND STOP AGAIN


Are you sure you are not "double-pressing" the Start/Stop button? The machine might think you have said Go and Stop straight after? Try embroiderying using the foot pedal - see if that works for you. I guess you are aware that the machine will stop for thread colour changes. Do an experiment on any old piece of fabric - load the design and press the Stop button (not the one mentioned above, but the one of the left-hand side above Fix). The light should go out. This will eliminate the colour changes - the design will sew out in one single colour only. See if it keeps running and completes the design.

I would also "park" the embroidery arm, turn off the machine, remove the arm, replace the arm, turn machine back on and try again. Sometimes it just needs to start all over to get things back on track.

Machine just stops but power is on


that is the power board (in base plate) you need a rebuilt base plate. Unless you can rebuild the power board. You can buy a rebuilt board and send your in and receive a core credit. It still will probably run $200 to get one. It will also come with a 2 year warranty.

Designer 1 says thread is broke and it isn't


You may notice that the machine works if you sew very slowly, as most repair technicians do. If it warns you at high speed, make sure to demonstrate this when you take it in.

I don't know how kent581 is going to explain this to you. I do know what is wrong and you will need pictures to get this apart and back together by yourself. If you still have a good relationship with someone that has worked on it for you, have them contact me.

Janome 9000


I have a Janome 9000, was sewing and broke needle, replaced and broke another. I didn't have machine threaded, took out bobbin and would sew a little and stop saying thread broke. I took off top plate and started machine again, sew a little and stop saying thread broke. So I took out bobbin case and sewed again and stopped repeating the message. Everything looks OK, bobbin case and top plate. I guess I want to know if the timing could be off or do you think it is the computer part of the machine...Should I take it to the Sewing Machine Shop??

Foot pedal dead, machine keeps sewing!


There is no suppressor in the foot control of a 425. Only the control unit, which may need to be replaced. If the machine accelerates to full speed, it may have a problem with the "stop right" board which tells the machine whether to stop with the needle up.
You could have several problems, so go see a qualified Husqvarna repairman. You may contact Husqvarna customer service to locate the best one in your area.
