SOURCE: I have a Pfaff Creative 1471 and the pressure foot...

I have had my machine for many years and this is about the only problem I have had with it. I had taken it to 2 different repairs shops about 2 years ago and the repair worked only temporarily. The only reason I had not tried this solution before is that I didn't know how to get the side cover off to reach the mechanism. I just recently learned how and the oil worked like a charm after a little cleaning with a Q-tip. At least now if the problem reoccurs, the fix will be easy and free.

Old Pfaff Creative 1459...book does not address how to make a buttonhole. Machine sews only down one side, then stops and makes a giant lump and never goes to the second side. Can you help?


The machine's timing may need adjusting. Has it been serviced recently? If the book does not say how to make a buttonhole, perhaps this feature is not available.

Buttonhole feature


try changing the needle
make sure the button hole lever is pulled down, it should be on the left
hand side of the needle, if your machine has one
it's also possible that the machine needs to be checked to see if
there is something wrong with a gear or just needs some type of
adjust inside of the machine

Instructions for buttonhole 40. I do not have instructions for making a 40 automatic buttonhole.


Instructions are on page 132 of the manual. Use either foot 5A or No.10 (which is more complicated). Select stitch No.40 then enter the length of the buttonhole you want to make using the number keys. If you want to define where the second bartack goes manually, press key 6 (under "Man") and you will have to press the Reverse key when the second row is where you want to finish the buttonhole. You will not be able to repeat this same size buttonhole automatically if you chose Manual bartack. By pressing OK after setting the length of the buttonhole you will be presented with a screen where you can adjust the width of the buttonhole (wider for heavy fabrics, narrower for finer fabrics) if you want.

I have a Pfaff Creative 1471 and the pressure foot is very slow to come down and then is not keeping the proper pressure on the material. How do I open the machine to see if I just need to clean and oil?
