Pfaff 1222 sewing machine

My wife has a Pfaff 1222 sewing machine which I have a question as whether there may something wrong with it. The hook mechanism drive shaft and gear, should it move back and forth if you pull and push on it. If I grab hold of the bobbin case and hook assembly and pull hard it will come out a little bit and then if I push on it, then it goes back against the housing. If so can you tell me how to fix it. Thank you

Its clickimg w/o needle in in hook area. Out of time or? This machine has been a painsince new!


Hm, difficult to diagnose. Usually, when my machine makes a clicking noise, it is the needle striking something. Since that isn't the case with your machine, can only assume it is something else. Sometimes machines will make additional noises when they need some oiling, but that would be determined by the make/model of your machine. Could be the bobbin mechanism clicking. Most sewing machines do need periodic sewing machine oil placed in the shuttle/hook area (use only fresh, good quality sewing machine oil--one or two drops only). Older Pfaff machines are usually well-loved, so it could be something is loose or out of place on yours.

since it's a pfaff, I suggest having the machine checked to
see if a part or gear has become damaged and needs to be replaced
or the stitch mechanism may need some type of adjustment.

When I turn on my PFAFF 1222 it wont sew


It may be in bobbin filling mode. Can you turn the inner circular on the hand crank. If you can click it into position, this should engage the needle mechanism.

Pfaff 1222 and pfaff 1229


Have a certified repairman look at the power board in the machine. The power supply circuits are broken on the board itself. Can be repaired with wire and solder. How do I know? Just fixed my wifes 1229 that had the same problem.

P.S. New boards are NOT available from PFAFF or anyone else

Changing Pfaff 1222 sewing machine belt


Have a look at this: remove the top cover and have a look (don't put your fingers in !) at the plastic gear in the middle of the mechanism (left side of he selection keys). It often cracks and then the motor is able to turn the whole mechanism for part of the circumference of this gear and when it passes on the crack, it locks or slows down until the crack is passed. You need to have it changed if this is the case.
