Sticky clutch older pfaff 7570

When filling a bobbin the clutch does not disengage. The needle goes up and down. When it does disengage the bobbin runs at high speed and will only stop when I push a button on the machine.
I explained this problem to the technician at the sewing machine shop. He said the clutch is dry.
How do I access it? What does it look like? What do I need to do to oil it?
Thanks

To fix this yourself you need to remove the handwheel screw and cover. Warning: the mechanism may explode and only an experienced technician can help you put it back together.

Ready?

1. Remove with a small screwdriver or any small prying instrument the small cover on the middle of the handwheel (it is about the size of a quarter). You will see a silver phillips head screw that is really wide for its size.
2. With a phillips screwdriver remove the screw you see, do not let plastic part underneath move, hold it in so only the screw and washer are removed. (There is a fiber washer underneath that may stick to is or stay behind, remove it with the screw.) It will take a little effort to break it loose and you need to hold onto the handwheel or block the needle bar with something. (remove the needle and place a piece of wood or a book or anything that is about 1" tall under the needle bar and turn the handwheel in the sewing direction until motion stops).
3. Tricky part: You have now removed the screw and washer and hopefully nothing else has come out or sprung across the room. Gengly pull the entire handwheel assembly away from the machine only a fraction of an inch. Pull on the outer part of the handwheel NOT! the inner part (see above re: springs landing on the other side of the room). You are looking at the upper shaft in the center of the assembly, apply a couple of drops of oil to the interface between the plastic handwheel and the shaft (tri-flow is best, but any light weight oil will do, even WD40 if you can stand the smell).
4. Reset the assembly and install the screw/washer/cover.
5. You may still need to block the needle bar and run the machine to work in the oil.

Notes: If you have not have your machine serviced in awhile this may be red flag telling you that it is time. I have worked on Pfaffs for 10 yrs. they are awsome machines but need a little tlc now and then to perform to maximum

Have fun!

When filling bobbin, needle continues up and down.


You are not in the bobbin winding mode. Check your manual, usually you have to slide the bobbin case over to a post or on real old models, do something on the wheel.

How do I engage the bobbin winding gear for Pfaff 7570?


To disengage the needle while winding a bobbin do the following: the handwheel on the right end of the machine has an inner knob. hold the outer rim of the handwheel stationary as you rotate the inner knob counterclockwise. Also make sure the bobbin winding peg is pushed over to the right and the bobbin is seated on the peg.

I don't have the manual for my machine and am having trouble winding the thread onto the bobbin. Is there any visual help online for this?


I don't know of any web video, but you may have simply forgotten a step. Guide the thread from the spool to the left and under the little tension disk, then to the right. The bobbin should not be turning freely, but have a little pin holding it, then push the bobbin to the right to disengage the motor function for the needle and disengage the flywheel. Hope that helps.

My pfaff 1215 won't disengage when filling the bobbin. the needle still goes up and down


The problem is lack of oil underneath the balance wheel on the shaft, if you do not have an oil hole you would be advised to take it in for a service because the balance wheel needs to be pulled out slightly to oil it.

Did the machine get dropped, or otherwise roughly handled? Or have a rough, bumpy ride back home, etc? That could explain why it's not working correctly.
