Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Pfaff 2029 sewing machine.

Bought a new 2029 pfaff from ebay. Misread the directions and tried sewing while set a 220 volts instead of 120. Switched to 120 and machine runs fine except that it does not sound right. Makes a crackling type of sound that will go away when I change to a different needle position. Also, the machine makes a whining sound when sewing. Never had a pfaff, so I'm not sure if this is normal. Otherwise the stitches are beautiful.

    My baby lock decorator's choice seems to sew fine, but then after a bit it sounds a bit chunky. I think it's the timing. That's what I've bee told it might be , but I just can afford $120 to take it in right now. Any ideas, Can anyone help?

No the sounds are not normal,
I would suggest you have the machine looked at by a sewing machine tech.
I have never come across this problem before and would need to look at the machine before making a diagnosis.
Sorry to be of little help but it would be unfair to give bad advice.

Hi, I have a PFAFF Hobby 420 sewing machine. Its motor is not working and there is no service centre of PFAFF in our city. Could you please guide me opening the motor??


Maybe it just needs new carbon brushes. My Bernina 830 Record resembles the Pfaff very closely. I had issues with the motor stuttering. Changed the carbon brushes and it runs like a top!

Display does not light up on PFAFF 1475 CD


Could be an electronic issue. Take it to your local Pfaff dealer for an estimate on repairing it. The parts may or may not be available.

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.

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.

I have a Pfaff 1222E sewing machine which needs a new motor


Good for you, to repair a great machine instead of buying some more modern, disposable machine!
I found a generic motor that will fit your machine at http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/partsDB/index.php?function=detail&recordID=185. Free delivery within the UK, but that doesn't help much, does it? There's several places in the U.S., like http://www.a1sewingmachine.com/parts.html http://www.sew4less.com/QuickSearch.php http://sewingpartsonline.com/
You'll probably need to look for a generic motor for your Pfaff, but they should be out there.
I did check eBay; they do have generic sewing machine motors, but unless you're very experienced with eBay, I'd be very careful there.
Check with your local sewing machine dealer/repair place (even if they don't carry Pfaffs). Maybe they can help.
Good luck--I wish I could be more helpful, but let me know if anything I've sent helps, ok?
