Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2040

Frozen Sewing Machine Arm/Pfaff Tiptronic 6270

Unable to raise the take-up lever suddenly after changing the needle....my husband has looked it over and the problem appears to be NOT in the bobbin as I first assumed....is there a home repair we can do or must I take it into a dealer/repair center?

    while sewing my pfaff 213 seemed as though the needle was stuck. THe only thing I can imagine is I placed the needle incorrectly. It is making a different sound, as though it is having a hard time moving. I am in a panic since the machine is old, I no longer know where my manual is. Help Please!

    I have a 2040 tiptronic Pfaff machine and It needs a new board and it will be about $400 to repair it. Should I get a new machine or just have this repaired.

    The foot will not go down when using the lever. It takes a while for the machine to warm up before it goes down. Have had the machine for 25 years and love it. HELP!

Good morning,

A question to help determine what's happening with your machine(s).

Open the bobbin case so you can see the bobbin area. Begin by trying to turn the handwheel towards you and watch as the needle attempts to go up/down. If you cannot turn the handwheel towards you, turn it slightly backwards then forwards. Does the needle hit the bobbin case as it comes down?

If yes, your machine is out of time and will require a professional technician to repair.

If the above is not the case, there may be thread jammed behind the bobbin case or wrapped around the inner parts of the take-up lever.

Either case - a Pfaff authorized technician would be your best bet for a proper repair.

Best of luck with your machines - it's just awful to not have the at the ready for all our projects!

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

My Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 does not sew.


Try unplugging the power cord from the machine, let it set for a few minutes and try plugging in again. Sometimes this will reset the machine.

There is a fuse in the the base plate
that has probably blown. It is soldered in and needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff). Sorry for the inconvenience, hope you are back to enjoying your Pfaff machine real soon.

Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 just stopped working!


There is a fuse in the the base plate that has blown. It is soldered in and is special fuse you won't find at Radio Shack. Unfortunatly it needs to be fixed by a Pfaff dealer on someone with access to the fuse. If you have the work done, make sure they replace a certain reisitor on the base plate at the same time to prevent this from happening again (per Paff).
Sorry for the bad news and best of luck.

Serger 794 from pfaff--calanda type 794


There are two holes running vertically inside the needle arm.........the needles are held firm by very small screws or hex allen keys.........they may have worked loose over time, if they have fallen out and been lost, it is a call to your  local Pfaff dealer for advice......be sure to quote model number.
Your User manual may have a diagram to assist.

Have you ever changed the needles since buying this machine ??
Needles ought to be changed every 6 - 8 hrs of sewing, and more often with heavy or abrasive fabric.
