Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines

Open Question

I have a Pfaff rolled hem foot for hobby 1142 which I cannot manage to insert . All other Pfaff feet I have have a little transversal bar which is then grabbed by the 2 hooks on the machine but this one has a bar on each side and nothing in the middle, so the 2 hooks grab empty space in the middle. Do I have the right model ( was sold to me by a Pfaff official retailer) , am I doing something wrong, or do I need an extra accessory ? Thank you for your help

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.

it sounds like the buttonhole mechanism is seized up or gummed up with old grease. try following the linkages for buttonhole mechanism or button to see you can locate the stuck linkage.

otherwise it sounds like a tech job.

Attachments for 140 activa


Do you mean a presser foot to sew rolled hem or shell hem edges?

If so, the Bernina website lists the accessories here:http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n25-i61-sEN.html

Bernina feet 68 and 69 are rolled hem/shell, just different widths. However, I think the feet for the Activa are the new 3 digit numbered feet? I know there is the old style and new style attachment system for Bernina feet, if you look at the presser feet you got with the machine, they will have a code on the front of the foot; buy any new feet with same code format.

As to where to buy, I always start with the manufacturer/distributor in my country first. So start with www.bernina.com, go to your country, then "contact us" page and give the local office a call. They should be able to confirm the exact foot code you need and sell it to you or direct you to a local dealer who can.

There are different kinds of single needle foot, What are these?


If you take a look at this website you'll see the different feet for some makes
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-presser-feet.aspx

I assume you mean what are the different feet used for?
General purpose foot will have room for the needle to swing through wide stitches, but enough foot to hold the fabric and move it through against the feed dogs. This is the one you use most.
A straight stitch foot will have a little hole so that the needle only goes through a small area and the fabric can't move to give a neat plain straight stitch.
Plastic wide toe foot is good when you need to see what you are sewing onto such as applique (sewing a piece of fabric onto another with a wide satin stitch).
Teflon coated foot is good for slippery fabrics, it grips well.
A roller foot is great for textiles like leather and vinyl which don't feed nicely.
Then there are lots of feet for turning the fabric to sew it such as a rolled hem (these come in different widths so you can turn 2mm, 4mm or 6mm for example).
Felled foot (like the side seam on your jeans) joining two fabrics in a felled seam
Then there are feet for quilting and darning where you need to move the fabric smoothly in different directions, these will be small foot area and open stitching space usually.
Walking foot is a special one, part of the foot moves because a part of it clips around the needle bar and the up and down movement then activates the foot so its little teeth help to move the fabric from the top to supplement the normal feed dogs below. Pfaff machines actually built this function into their machines some years ago to give even feed from top and bottom. Great for quilting thick fabric sandwich or sewing together fabrics that want to slip or not feed smoothly.

There is also similar info here http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ which may help you to see the different uses and feet available.
Most manufacturers will sell their machine with 4 or 5 of the most used feet but often have more to buy aftermarket. And many feet between companies look very alike so if you have a clip on foot from one brand it may work on another machine with a clip on foot.

I hope that this is what you were asking.

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
