20 Most Recent PfaFF Tiptronic 2040 Questions & Answers


Pfaff Tiptronic 6270 just stopped working!

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.

I have a pfaff 2040 and when the needle goes down to pick up the bobbin thread the main thread wraps around the bobbin housing and jams. Doesnt grab the bobbin thread. How can I fix this?

Be sure to use a brand new needle because a bent needle could miss the bobbin thread.Search the internet for sites and videos relating to sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My screen no longer tells me when the bobbin is low how can I fix this?

Try cleaning out the bobbin case area. Lint build up will affect the bobbin thread sensor

Needle holder will not move up & down needle, machine is seized.

I would check for thread wrapped around the bobbin holder again. If it is a recurring problem, then there is another problem causing it. Take it back to your servicer and ask them to look deeper for the real issue.
