Have a Pfaff 6270 tiptronic sewing machine. When I turn on the power switch the light goes on but the display remains off.

    Is this something I can do myself? I have a multimeter. There are four screws at the base. Do I take those out to lift the housing and then would I have access to the fusible links. Would I also be able to gain access to a faulty fuse?

    I took the machine to an authorized dealer for repair.

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.

Possible failure of the power supply - sub supply - to the main board - display board.
Possible failure of the processor or the display unit if nothing works. You might need to check individually the power to all the sections of the controller board to confirm. Unless a voltage check is taken these factors can only be speculated.
So use a multimeter to confirm , if power is faulty or a fusible link is faulty you can replace with the same rating.

    Yes , it is worth a try to have this first observation but take care that you are insulated and keep away from live circuits.

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.

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.

Frozen Sewing Machine Arm/Pfaff Tiptronic 6270


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
