Pfaff creative 1473 Bobbin Case misalligned

Hi, my machine is 17 years old, but runs like a gem. I have had it maintained over the years. I recently hit a pin, and my bobbin case slipped and is now off about 1/8 of an inch. The needle hits the solid part instead of the opening. My husband can pretty much fix anything, but doesn't want to risk further damage. Is there an easy fix to this, that we can do oursleves? We are both out of work, and don't have the funds to pay to have it fixed.

Unfortunately, the timing of the machine has been affected. This is not an easy fix unless you're trained and have the necessary tools.

Wish we had better help for you but it will require a machine repair tech to fix. If you've taken your machine to the same repair person over the years, perhaps they'll give you a discount of some type for being a loyal customer.

Hope you are able to get it repaired soon - we know what it's like to be without our machines.

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...

My pfaff creative 1473 makes a continuous noise when switched on it won't operate in any way can anyone help

"OIL IT" , or you may have a thread lock, check the shuttle by removing the bobbin case and the shuttle behind the bobbin case. A single piece of thread can lock the machine "DO NOT FORCE MOVEMENT" As you may break the machine..

Pfaff 1475 manual

Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

Also see this Youtube video showing how to insert the bobbin after threading.

My creative 1473 pfaff will only ball up the thread on the back of the fabric. I have triple checked the threading and am sure the bobbin went in correctly.

I would. rethread the machine. Make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly but clean the bobbin area and look closely for any threads in the bobbin are before you insert it. Make sure the tension is set correctly and there are not stray threads caught in the tension anywhere along the way.
