SOURCE: We have a very old Necchi Model BU Mira, that is

The power wire (from the wall) connects to a block just under the motor where the on/off switch is. On my machine there is a brown block with the words Necchi italy on it. I unscrew two screw and there is a track were the power cord lays and leads bite in to the cord as the screws are retightened..... The blue wires from the transformer are on the "sewing machine side" of the transformer and power from the wall should not be attached there.

SOURCE: where do I find replacement screws for a Pfaff 130

A local sewing machine center will have your screw if not exactly they will have a similar size and pitch of the screw threads. 99% they will have something similar even though it's not the same brand.

SOURCE: I have a PFAFF 487 sewing machine that is wired

Not sure what you mean by VAC but if the motor says it will run on 240Volts then it should do, no idea what the 380VAC is supposed to be

SOURCE: need to know the wiring

Why not just buy a new plug for about $22? I am not sure what brand you have but the plugs are easy to find online.

How do I wire my Piaf 130 sowing machine


it is 'sewing' unless you are going to use it to broadcast seeds, and it might be a Pfaff? :)

Ho do you mean 'wire it'? There is a wire that goes from the wall to the foot pedal, and a wire that goes from the foot pedal to the rear or the machine or to the motor itself. I have contacts for all the foot pedals.

Pfaff 6230 Foot Control quit working. Light behind Stitch panel, speed, needle down, & 1 stitch at a time doesn't light up. Are these 2 problems? What do I need besides replacing Foot Control?


Um, it could be no power to your machine, I would suspect it is the power cord, plug or possibly an internal electrical issue. If the foot control failed, the machine's light should still work.

I have a pfaff 261 when the knee pressor is engaged the motor runs but the needle doesn't engage. If i turn the wheel by hand the needle will engage.


First, stop running the motor if the machine is not operating. Most likely the old oil has stuck things together. Continued operation of the motor in such condition could burn up the motor or break a gear.

I have a antique pfaff 130 sewing machine. You use your knee to press the pedal. Can you tell me if it can be converted to a foot pedal as well as the aproximate year.


It probably can be switched to a foot control. It's been done a lot for other machines. You may need to have an electrician do the wiring or even a sewing machine repair shop may be able to do it for you.

There are at least two Yahoo groups that deal with Pfaff sewing machines. You may want to check them out and possibly join as they are very helpful with Pfaff problems and questions.

We have a very old Necchi Model BU Mira, that is integrated into a sewing table. It has a knee pressure speed control. There is no power cord, so I'm trying to figure out where to connect one. It appears...

Elna supermatic...the light comes on ,,but nothing else works


Turn the machine on, press the foot control down and turn the handwheel backwards. If it sputters, the motor carbon brushes are worn to the springs and need replacing.

Next, while pressing on the foot control, try wiggling the wires around where it enters to machine and where it enters the foot control. There may be a short in the cord. If the short is at the machine, you need a new cord. If it is at the foot control, the cord can be pulled into the foot control, the shorted part cut off and the connection reattached.

If it still doesn't work, try removing the cord from the machine and placing an alligator clip test lead to two of the inlet prongs on plugging it into power. Which two prongs you ask? Try several combinations, (one will light up the lamp) CAREFUL: THE MACHINE MAY SUDDENLY TAKE OFF AT FULL SPEED, SO REMOVE THE BOBBIN, THE THREAD AND NEEDLE FIRST. if it runs, it is your foot control. If it doesn't run, it's likely the motor brushes or motor.

Light dims when you sew


the problem is that the cord that was replaced on it is too light for the sewing machine. some companies sell cords that are made with 18awg wire 18awg wire can only deliver enough electricity to run the motor sapping up all of the power from the light as soon as you push the pedal. you need to get a cord made by singer or rewire your cords with 16awg wire... 16awg wire is the standard wire for all vintage singer sewing machines it keeps the light nice and bright...... hope this helps
