Take it back to the Dealer.( He probably has a guarantee on the work he did). Let him show you how it works. If he won't do this then it is definitely time to find a more reputable dealer. If you paid for a repair it should have been repaired.

Hello, Victoria -

I suggest you locate an authorized Pfaff sewing machine repair business near you and take the machine there for evaluation and repair.

Best wishes.

1222E/SE Has "Stopmatic" and disengages the machine for bobbin winding. You can't use the crank and needle is locked. Place your lifter bar to the horizontal level (work turning while needle is down), this will engage the machine.

How long since it has been serviced? Sounds to me like it may need some cleaning and oiling.

Contact them direct. They should send a technician. It is still under warranty and you fixing it will void that warranty.

Page 24 doesn't show how it is fitted, so must be from the underside or a press fit.

On that machine you need to set the “width” knob to 5 or 6, as well as select an appropriate stitch to achieve a zig zag type stitch.
