I have a pfaff 2170 and sometimes my machine will say main motor blocked but it usually happens when my embroidery foot comes loose and falls off and stops the machine. All I have to do is press ok on my machine, reattached my foot and start again. I am not sure what the error e40 means.

I have a Pfaff 2170 and when I get that message it is usually that I've got a birds nest underneath or it is too dense for the needle to go through. Rethread everything maybe that will help.

thank you.. i re-threaded... changed a needle and re-did the bobbin and cleaned it out.. and still same.. it's suckie.. could be too dense though never thought of that.. but it sews one way and then when it goes back it jams... maybe too much bulk in one section!?!
but if i take it apart to check with a different fabric im worried that i wont be able to line it up again with the one i started.. i just don't know.. lol... i guess i will have to wait till tomorrow!! thank you for your suggestion!!
