Unfortunately, you need a circuit board repair. Probably the 22 micro farad capacitors in the base plate are leaking. Some shops could replace them, others will need to send it to Pfaff for repair. It could also be the display panel which only Pfaff can repair. Either way just to repair the base plae will be $200+. I love this machine and would probably fix it but it is up to you.

I have a Pfaff Creative 1473 and am having problems with needle position.

Hello Eelee
As long as the display indicates the change, the needle will move. The needle is not moving with pressing the needle position button because the needle is too close to the fabric .... if the needle is raise up by turning the fly wheel, it will then move according to the number indicated on the display for needle position.

Please let me know how it goes.

Happy Stitching.

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.

Looking for repair manual for pfaff 1475 sewing machine

There are a number of sites that offer the Instruction Manual for a fee. See the following:

I was able to find a free download of the Instruction Manual for the 1473 if that would be of any assistance:
Not sure if these will have enough information to help with repair but perhaps the 1473 manual will give you an idea whether the information you require is likely to be in the Instruction Manual before you purchase.

I took my machine to be 'cleaned', and when I get it back the pressure foot has no pressure. I'm in Jacksonville FL and cannot find anyone that repairs Pfaff sewing machines (1473 CD). I need some help!

Independent repair shops will work on any model, it's the parts they have no control of. The good thing is that we have ebay, where most hard to find parts always pop up. All or 95% of sewing machine stores here in Bay Area Ca. sell and service PFAFF, even vintage metal mechanical models.

I have a pfaff 1473 the display blinks on and then off. The display stay stays off

Mine is doing that too. According to the manual, you need to replace the fuse. I'm having trouble locating where the fuse is though.
