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.

Change 220v to 110v

You will need a transformer. If the appliance is 220V to start with, you need a step-up tranformer, that is, 110V supply UP to 220V output. The other way round, a step-down transformer. They are sold at hardware outlets and electronics suppliers like RadioShack.

Tiptronic 2020 wont do any of the stitches. Nothing happens when I press a stitch or press the arrow. I am using a extention cord. Could that cause the stitches not to work.

as long as the extension cord is plugged into the outlet correctlythere should be no problem, it sounds like some part of the electronics is messing up

How do i fix the tension on my pfaff tiptronic 2020

It sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin tension. There is a small screw on the bobbin case to tighten/loosen the thread's tension coming out of the case. Refer to the user manual on the procedure to set it.
