I am very satisfied with my pfaff260c smarter, only today a problem without a reason, it no longer progresses when using the handwheel manually, it starts for a while and the stitches are fine, but then immediately stops transporting, I can solve this myself, I have already removed or removed the necessary dust particles. I need to replace it, thank you [email protected]
