Question about Sewing Machines

I have a pfaff machine #1221. I lost the foot part that runs the machine I used for my knee or foot. I was in Katrina and grabed this machine out of the mud and water. I lost everything in my home but, realized I would never get another machine like this one. I have a white plasticfoot peddle now. It is out again. Is there a real part that I could buy for this machine.?? M<uch thanks, The plastic foot was going really slow slow and just went out on m,e.

I think you are asking were you can buy a foot control. If that is so try PD60 or brewer i think bolth of them have that part and will sell to the public.
There could be other resons why you machine is sewing slowly.
Is the handwheel hard to turn if so you could have a number of problems. If so we can go into that.
That is a good machine but realy need to have a 1222 /1221 speshalist look at it. They are very hard to find, most pfaff dealer tecks do not even know much about them.

Re: Pfaff sewing machine, How do I use the zipper foot attachment?

It really depends on what your zipper foot looks like. There are several that can be used with the Pfaff machines.

I have a antique pfaff 130 sewing machine. You use your knee to press the pedal. Can you tell me if it can be converted to a foot pedal as well as the aproximate year.

It probably can be switched to a foot control. It's been done a lot for other machines. You may need to have an electrician do the wiring or even a sewing machine repair shop may be able to do it for you.

There are at least two Yahoo groups that deal with Pfaff sewing machines. You may want to check them out and possibly join as they are very helpful with Pfaff problems and questions.

I have a PfaFF sewing machine, model 1221. The foot feed makes a slight humming sound, but fails to run the machine.

The power pedal (not foot feed) needs to be replaced.

You can check and other Internet parts vendors or just call your local Pfaff dealer to see if they have one or if it has to be ordered.
