Change bulb on 6085 PFAFF

Looks like you bulb is a bayonet style. Push up and rotate the old bulb to remove. Install the new bulb the same way--push up & rotate to lock in place.

Note: there is also a bulb remover tool

There are broken lightbulb removal tools but the ones I found are pretty much for regular ceiling lightbulbs and probably wouldn't work on a small sewing machine bulb. There's a tool shown here but I don't know where you would find it.

Perhaps this would be helpful:
Pfixing the Pfaff (further down the page, it shows how to remove the side cover--after removing the top cover first!)

Be sure to unplug your machine first!!!

You might try using a very long needlenose plier. Stick the needlenose up inside the bulb, then open the pliers until the outside of the nose is tight against the bulb socket and try twisting. If it doesn't grip enough, you might try putting something like a rubber finger over the nose tip. (If there is no broken glass left, you may even be able to put a rubber finger on a fat pencil or even your finger up there and twist.)

Something else that may work is using a fat school eraser, trimming it down to fit in the broken socket.

I would even consider putting super glue on a fat pencil eraser end, sticking it up there and letting it adhere, then giving it a twist.

Good luck!

How to change bulb in BL3100

I can locate no information on your particular machine--even whether it is a serger or sewing machine.

However, sometimes the bulbs are accessible from below where the bulb is located. In some cases, rubber fingers, rubber garden gloves, or a tool will help provide the grip needed to grasp the bulb to remove it.

How do I remove the light bulb? I've removed the cover but can't figure out how to detach the bulb.

Wont it simply push in and twist out? Sometimes a special bulb holder is supplied with machines to help, have a look through your accessories.

A few months ago, the bulb wouldn't come on, so I

When you say 'bulb' ... I assume you mean the sewing light ? The Artista 180 does not have a conventional 'bulb' for the sewing light, but a fluorescent tube that's a 'C' shap and surrounds the bottom of the head unit by the needle. This is driven by a high-voltage converter that runs off a supply on the main processor board. If the machine is working normally but there's some intermittent on/off of the fluorescent light, it could be simply that the tube's had-it, in which case its off to the service man for a new one - it comes as a complete tube and converter replacement. But before you do that. TURN THE MACHINE OFF. unscrew the hex socket that holds the head cover on and remove the head cover (the cover over the needle end). If you look at the head mechanism, looking towards the foot pressure control (i.e. the 'end' of the sewing arm) you should see a small cirucit-board just above the fluorescent tube with a fairly large 2-pin connector on the top - this slides on to the circuit board. Try giving that a careful wiggle to re-seat the connections, but PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A HIGH-VOLTAGE PART AND THEREFORE DANGEROUS, so you MUST NOT touch it with the machine switched-on. Hope that helps.

My light bulb is burnt out -how do I change this?

Page 110 of the manual, in the Care of your Designer 1 section, gives details on how to do this. Basically you need the special tool that came with the machine. One end (marked Out) is used to remove the bulb, and the other end (marked In) is used to put the new one in. You may need to moisten the Out end a little to aid suction when removing the old bulb. It can be tricky getting the bulb out, but it will come out eventually. Lay the machine down on its side on a towel to give you a better view. You should replace both bulbs while you are at it - if one is broken, neither will work. Bulbs are available cheaply from auto spare parts shops.
If you don't have the special bulb removing tool (like a light grey rubbery barbel, but the "bells" are hollow egg-cup shaped) I am fairly sure you could get one for very little cost from eBay or similar.

I need to change the overhead light bulb? how do I do this it is not in my manual

It is on page 110 under the Care of your Designer 1 section. You need to use the special tool provided to remove (one end) and insert (other end) the new light bulb. Light bulbs can be easily sourced from the auto spare parts department for very cheap prices. You might need to slightly wet the removing end of the device to help provide suction. It is a tricky operation, but you will be able to do it yourself. You might try laying the machine down on its side on a towel to help you see better. Sometimes the bulbs pop out without bother but other times they just don't seem to want to come out - persevere, they will come out in the end. You should change both bulbs at the same time - if one is out, the other won't work. There is one above/beside the needle and the other is in the harp of the machine.

I have an Elna Super sewing machine that was my mothers. I do not have the manual and need to know how to change the light bulb. Thanks.

I have an Elna TSP (about 35 years old) that I believe is about the same as yours. There is a small hold on the top of the sewing machine (not an oiling hold) near the front. Use the small screw driver that came with the machine and push it down into the hole. The light bulb will be pushed down in back of the needle. The bulb has a bayonet type socket and you have to push up and twist the bulb to remove it. This is not striaght forward and you really need the owners manual to figure it out. If you do not have the original screwdriver, one from an eyeglass repair kit might work. I found your question because I am trying to locate a replacement bulb for my Elna.

How to replace light bulb at Pfaff Creative 2124?

On these machines you cannot open the left side to remove the bulb. Your machine accessory kit should have come with a rubber tool that is ribbed with a cup-shaped opening on either end. This is a tool for removing the bulb. Tilt the machine with the base facing up so you can see where the bulb is and use this tool to twist the bulb gently. It sould come out with no problem! Hope this helps!
