SOURCE: Foot control for PFAFF won't work

These machines need to be seen by a technician who can disassemble the motors and replace the carbon brushes. You should have them serviced at the same time since it doesn't take that much longer to do everything.

SOURCE: i need a service manual for the creative 7570 from pfaff

Speak to your nearest Pfaff dealer about availability.
I have tried with many older machines and the prices can be very steep, some are not available at all, so it may be a judgement call on whether this is cost effective, depending on the nature of the problem.

The pedal on my pfaff 7550 has stopped working. Can you please help.

It could be the machine, itself, or the foot control that is defective. If you can, check the machine with a different foot control to see if that works. If so, then you can purchase a replacement foot control (just look online for Make Model parts). If the other foot control does not make the machine operate, then you know it is probably a machine issue.

I am wondering if it is possible to find the plugin on the foot pedal of a Pfaff Tiptronic 2020

Probably so, however, if may be easier to find a replacement for the ailing part. You may need to search for a donor machine or a foot control that matches your machine. You can also try replacing the entire foot control with a new replacement item.

Foot control for pfaff 1171 needs a new cord how do I open the foot control

It might be safer to buy a new control foot as the whole thing springs apart when opened.

Pedal foot is not working

You should take it to a repair tech and see if they will give you a free estimate. If your foot control needs to be replaced it can cost anywhere from $50-$300 for a replacement. You may just need a new cord ($20?) or the motor could be dead.

My Pfaff 2030 model seems to have a problem with the connecting foot control. It cuts out and if I wiggle the cord and hold it just so it works. A bit hard to sew one handed. Can I order a new connecting...

You can order a new foot control complete or you can just order the cord for the foot control. If you just get the cord you will have to soldier a couple of things from your old cord to the new one.

I have a Pfaff 1471. Last week it semed to be fine. The next day when I turned on the power switch the control panel did not come on. After turning it off and on a few times the control panel came on but...

You need a new baseplate, dont let anyone tell you different.
The control board is just a few buttons and a screen.
Yes you will need to take your machine to a pfaff shop and they will need to remove your base plate and mail it to pfaff for repair.
That is a great machine and will work better that the new machines on the market.
This repair should be around $300-$400.
Hope this helps

I find the foot control on my Pfaff Creative 7570 very tiring to use-is it possible to fit a stop-go button?

yes simple but then there is no safety feature and the unit would run flat out but if you really want to then simply cut both cables from the foot control and fit them together using a high volt in line voltage switch just like on a lamp

best of luck

Pfaff triptronic 2040 sewing machine

Could be a couple of things:
  1. Foot control is bad - take foot control to your local Pfaff dealer to try on one of their machines. If their machine won't run either, it's the foot control and you can look into repair/replacement.
  2. Machine has a short or some type or computer board problem - take machine to local Pfaff dealer and try with one of their known working foot controls. If the machine still doesn't work, your dealer will need to diagnose what is wrong.
Hope this helps.

Happy stitching,
