Question about PfaFF Hobby 4260

1 Answer

My pfaff synchromatic 1209 machine--the stop motion know keeps falling off. I have reassembled it but it will not wind a bobbin and only sews for a little while. Does it have a spring in there? I was sewing when it just flew off the machine.

You machine has a screw that fits the end of the shaft and the head pof the screw has broken. You can buy a new screw from a sewing machine dealer but if the whole assembly has come off you may need to take it to a dealer to have it reassembled properly. There is a spring inside which is very difficult to install.

Trying to wind bobbin on my pfaff sewing machine but the bobbin doesn't tur


Hello Kathy
Make sure that:
1. The correct bobbin is being used ... make sure that the bobbin is the one specified for your machine.
2. Make sure that the bobbin is pushed all the way down on the bobbin winding spindle.
3. Make sure that the bobbin winder is engaged ... pushed over for winding.
4. Make sure that the thread is not tightly wound around something preventing it from advancing onto the bobbin.
5. Refer to page 18 of the Manual. If you need one, it is available for free at:
PFAFF tiptronic 6232 Instruction Manual Page 22

May this get you back to sewing very quickly. Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful, otherwise send me more information.

Pfaff Creative Vision 5. The bobbin thread keeps birdnesting under the plate. I have changed thread, bobbin, dusted and cleaned the machine with canned air.


Just a guess, but do you RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread? That will usually stop the bird nesting.

I am unable to disengage the sewing action on my Pfaff 1473CD to wind the bobbin. Will it damage my machine to wind the bobbin with the sewing action engaged?


one of the sewing machines I had once, did that, I could still wind a bobbin though. you might think about getting one of those machines that just winds bobbin.

I have inherited a Necchi 537FA. When I wind a bobbin I loosen the stop motion wheel, but the sewing mecfhanism doesn't disconnect, it still "sews" through the entire bobbin winding procedure! ...


Its been idle for too long and needs a good service. Try and trickle some oil behind the stop motion wheel. But what it actually needs is to have the wheel removed and then apply oil to the shaft. Careful when you start again as oil will fly out from the wheel so mind your drapes and wall decor.

Locking disk on handwheel won't lock and I can't wind a bobbin


If the stop motion wheel is stuck and you can't free it the best way to do it is to stand at the end of the machine, get something that looks like a chisel or something that has a flat end even a screwdriver, put the end of the screwdriver in a slot on the left hand side of the stop motion and give it a sharp thump down, it worked for me for years, the only problem you may have is if you do not have any slots or grooves to put the screwdriver in.

Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.
