Question about PfaFF Hobby 4260
Hi, the reverse stitch lever on my Pfaff Hobby 1142 looks twisted and won't reverse stitch - been to 1 repair shop who actually told me it was MADE that way (turned toward the sewing operator) to make it easier to use - BUT his sample stitch cloth showed NO reverse stitches because it doesn't work!
Can I open the machine somehow to get to this and see if it simply got "unhooked" or whatever from the reverse thing?
Hi, your reverse stitch lever is broken, it's plastic and should have been made stronger. Pfaff doesn't make it easy to get the front half of the plastic case off, which you will need to do to get to the lever. I haven't found anyone selling a replacement part. You can go my route and try a repair with epoxy.

Take it back to the Dealer.( He probably has a guarantee on the work he did). Let him show you how it works. If he won't do this then it is definitely time to find a more reputable dealer. If you paid for a repair it should have been repaired.
