Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2040
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?
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!
