SOURCE: pfaff 1222 belt

Hi - a few suggestions:

  1. May just need a good thorough service - generally a good idea to have it completely gone over - by an experienced Pfaff tech - every year or 2. Internal parts can dry out and simply get jammed.
  2. The timing could be off - again an experienced tech can take care of.
  3. The cam-stack (the part that actually makes your stitch formations) may have cracked. At the age of your machine, this isn't uncommon.
At the age of your machine, many other owners actually have it "rebuilt" by an authorized Pfaff service person. This model is one of those that's worth the investment compared to buying a new machine of the same caliber/quality.

If you are comfortable removing the top cover, you may be able to look at the internal parts to see if anything is broken. This will at least give you an idea of what may be happening.

Many authorized techs will not charge you to look at the machine and give you a quote. We'd suggest calling a few sewing machine stores in your area. Don't hesitate to ask friends for their recommendation of a good service person.

Hope this helps - please don't hesitate to respond if you need further info or clarification.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

SOURCE: changing Pfaff 1222 sewing machine belt

Have a look at this: remove the top cover and have a look (don't put your fingers in !) at the plastic gear in the middle of the mechanism (left side of he selection keys). It often cracks and then the motor is able to turn the whole mechanism for part of the circumference of this gear and when it passes on the crack, it locks or slows down until the crack is passed. You need to have it changed if this is the case.

SOURCE: replace a motor belt for sewing machine

The top tension is dependent not just on the tension dial, but also on the little disks that you go through to thread the machine. If it is not threaded correctly, you will get bunching underneath. Sometimes I just have to rethread the machine-- when you get to the disks- hold the thread taut and push it through the disks before going up to the arm part. Here is a threading picture I found- but it doesn't point out the disks too much. Once the machine is stitching nicely, then the tension dial can be used to flatten out the stitches.

What would cause a Bernina 830 Record to be sluggish and labored at low speed but run beautifully at high speed? Thank you.


Your beloved Bernina 830 Record needs a good cleaning and oiling. The old oil has solidified and is beginning to seize the machine. Continued use may burn out the motor. Also, other parts will begin to falter, ie the stitch selectors, the feed dogs, the needlebar... These old machines are great but they do require TLC to keep them happily purring.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

How to get the back off if it. My machine stitches slower and slower. Need to find out what is wrong


Sounds like your motor is going out. Engage your bobbin winder, and make sure the needle isn't moving. Push the foot pedal all the way down and listen to the motor. It should be a steady sound. If it sounds like it's struggling, your motor is going bad. Your foot pedal can also be an issue.

I have a singer 247 it was sewing really good but started going slower and slower til it stopped could it be the motor


It is more likely that a bushing internally warms up then seizes partially. A good cleaning and lubrication could solve this. To test the motor remove the drive belt and run the motor with no load, see if it slows down if not see idea above.
