You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.

It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.

If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.

Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.

Happy stitching,

SOURCE: buttonhole on second side was only half the length of first side

Hi, did you buy the machine from a dealer - if so, I would take it back and ask them to show you how to do buttonholes again. It is also possible that, although the test buttonholes sewed out correctly, the automatic button sensor needs professional adjustment.

Before going back to the dealer, find the section in your manual that discusses buttonholes and read thru it very carefully. Pfaff machines are not intuitive, and the manual might describe a way to adjust the automatic buttonhole settings so they sew out correctly.

If you need more help, please repost and I'll try to help or put you in touch with a dealer who can help

Good luck, Ginny

Hi, well most often when this happens, it is either the Power Supply, or the Controller. However, it also maybe any one of a myriad of "Other" faults, that unfortunately display the same symptoms, ie: lights on, No go, No display..

The very best thing you can do is take it into a Pfaff authorsied servicing center, contact either a local or head office, and ask for a referral to a local service center.

now when there, ask them for a "Quote"as to the repair, and if the "Quote" seems acceptable to you then you have the option of repairing or replacing depending on costings.

How do i fix the tension on my pfaff tiptronic 2020


It sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin tension. There is a small screw on the bobbin case to tighten/loosen the thread's tension coming out of the case. Refer to the user manual on the procedure to set it.

Machine made buttonholes.


Here ya go! For 1 Step Automatic Buttonholes: 1. Place button into the buttonhole attachment. 2. Push slider to hold button securely in the slot. The button goes to the back! 3. Put button foot onto needle bar--just attach it securely. 4. Place needle thread and bobbin thread UNDER buttonhole attachment and let 4"-5" of thread trail behind it. 5. There's a lever called a Button Stop to the left of the needle bar. Give it a gentle tug and pull it down. Pull forward. Hear a click? Now the machine knows what length to STOP sewing! 6. Put foot on pedal and machine will sew barrack closest to you first. It will continue all around until it makes complete rotation of each side. 7. You must do these steps for each of your buttonholes! IMPORTANT: Make sure you set your dial for making buttonhole pattern because that "tells" machine to zig zag, and use appropriate size needle for the particular weight of your fabric. A new needle before you begin is recommended. Turn screw on needlebar to loosen screw. Hold it so it does not slip down into the feed dog area! New needle is inserted flat shank toward back of needlebar as far as it will go. Tighten screw. Did this help? Hope so!
