    On the manufacturer plate located on back of machine, there is a date. An example is from our PFAFF Classic Style 2025, shows IV/04. This stands for 4th month, 2004 year where IV is roman numeral. On older machines, the date may be different.

Not sure if this will help you out.PFAFF was founded in Kaiserslautern, Germany in 1862 by instrument maker Georg Michael Pfaff (1823-1893). Pfaff's first machine was handmade, and designed to sew leather in the manufacture of shoes. In 1885, Georg Michael Pfaff opened a sewing machine shop in London. The PFAFF factory was expanded and modernized...

SOURCE: I just inherited a Pfaff 139. Can you tell me

Hi! Congratulations! I just read a great review of your machine at http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sm/readsmreview.pl. One of the things the reviewer noted is that the 139 wasn't designed by Pfaff. It was designed by another sewing machine company (the GZ in your serial number) that Pfaff had bought. The machine dates to the 1950s.

SOURCE: how do you adjust timing on pfaff 138 sewing machine

Take the foot off the machine
Remove the needle plate
Remove the feed dogs
rotate by hand until the needle is at the lowest position
continue rotating until the needle rises 2 mm
the hook assembly should be passing exactly by the scarf of the needle
if not loosen the two screws that secure the the hook assembly and rotate the hook assembly by hand until it is exactly at the scarf of the needle and the distance between the hook and the scarf is .1 mm (almost touching the needle)
tightened the two screws, replace the feed dogs and foot and it should sew perfectly

I just got a pfaff hobbylock 776 and it is very tight when it turns . Could you tell me if this is fixable or not

Everything is fixable, you have a top class machine!

When was the last time is was served, cleaned and lubricated? They need doing every 2 years if you use them or not. Every joint and sliding part needs one drop of oil once a year.

The feed dog on my Pfaff Hobbylock 784 broke in half. Are there any replacements?

Hello, Mary -

I am having no luck in finding a replacement feed dog for your specific model of Pfaff sewing machine. I suspect a replacement feed dog is available your model and other Pfaff models.

If you can locate an authorized Pfaff sewing machine repair business in your area, someone there can probably tell you what the right part number is for the feed dog and may be able to sell you one.

This is the link to the Pfaff Machine Support web page:

Best wishes.

What is the value of a Pfaff, Creative 1469, please. Thanks.

Depends on a lot of things including the visual and physical condition of the machine, its features, how it's been maintained over the years, the accessories included, the desirability of the machine, and location of the machine. Best way to find out is check with a sewing repair shop or search for machines for sale or recently sold on the internet, ie eBay...

I have a antique pfaff 130 sewing machine. You use your knee to press the pedal. Can you tell me if it can be converted to a foot pedal as well as the aproximate year.

It probably can be switched to a foot control. It's been done a lot for other machines. You may need to have an electrician do the wiring or even a sewing machine repair shop may be able to do it for you.

There are at least two Yahoo groups that deal with Pfaff sewing machines. You may want to check them out and possibly join as they are very helpful with Pfaff problems and questions.

Pfaff quilt expressions 4.0 shows ''clear thread jam under switchplate'' when there is no threat under the switchplate.

A lot of these Ex 4.0 have defective cutter motors. The arm that the cutter is attached to passes by a sensor that tells the machine when the cutter is at the rest position. And what is happening is that the arm is no longer in place to tell the sensor where it is, and it stops short of the rest position. This part is covered by PFAFF for a 5 year period. You'll just have to have a PFAFF dealer install it and pay a labor charge.

Pfaff 1222 frozen 20 mins after I start using it

My mother has had a Pfaff 1222 for 40 years and loves it. Take yours to a new/different repair shop or find an authorized place for an overhaul. It's not a lemon, just poorly maintained. you have a problem the service people just haven't figured out yet.  If you have taken the same machine to the same people with the same problem more than once and they tell you it's a different cause every time, they are not competent. Also check the owner's manual for any tips.
