    I have a Pfaff 2170.
    I've read somewhere that there is a way to show on the screen the total number of hours a sewing machine has been used.
    But I can't find it now.
    Does anyone know how to do this?

    On my Husqvarna Viking Designer SE, you go to the tools screen and look at the timer which will give you the hours and minutes. I think your Pfaff would be similar inasmuch as Pfaff and Husqvarna are now one company. :D

    It might not be that simple on your Pfaff. I know that my previous machine (HV #1+) also had a timer that kept track of the hours but it could only be seen by the dealer when they opened up the machine. Now I'm curious...can you see it????

    I tried on my viking sapphire and if I'm looking in the right place, it said SW ver 09479 20070702. Do you know if I'm looking in the right place? Is it 9,479 hours? Wow, I sew A LOT! You'd think I'd have more done!

    No the SW # on your Viking is the serial #.

    Hey I found it. I knew I had it someplace.
    Anyway, in case someone else wants to check their Pfaff 2170, the steps are:

    1. Go to Main Menu
    2. Press red button at bottom of screen
    3. go to Machine test
    4. Type in code 4021
    5. press OK at bottom of screen
    6. Go to Operating Times
    It's listed by Days:Hours:Minutes:Seconds

    I don't know if it'll work on other Pfaffs.
