Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
This is a comon problem with the Pfaff machines. You may want to take this to your pfaff dealer for repair, should be around $30. Or you can do it your self if you are up to it.
Remove top cover
On the handwheel there is a small cap/screw, remove it.
It is sometimes VERY VERY tight, do NOT strip it out.
After you get that out pull the inside brown plastic part that you turn out.
There will be a spring and a small white part and a black part, will need to remember how that all goes back in place, recomend taking a pic.
Remove the handwheel, it is going to be very hard to get off you wil need to wigle and pull for some timing depending on how locked up it is.
The motor belt is atached to this part.
Clean all parts, before puting it back together put some oil on the main shaft.
I think it is best to just take the machine in to the shop, there is a lot in there that could go bad.
hope this helps
