Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Could be a couple of things - either machine is just "gummed up" (can happen if it's been awhile since machine was serviced - more than a year), an internal part has broken or come loose or the machine has somehow been knocked out of time. As these are not things that you'll be able to fix yourself, you'll need to have your machine checked out by a qualified service tech.
Best of luck,

The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."
The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.
Hope this helps!

Here's a link to the Google froogle search results, they are a little pricey though... You might find a cheaper one in your area by calling around and asking for a used one.

If the machine is correctly threaded this could be caused by incorrect installation of the left needle, if not full inserted it can cause the machine to drop the stitch, just loosen the needle and push it up into the holder.
