Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

Pfaff 7550 presser foot will not go all the way down after using darning foot and returning to regular sewing.


By chance, do you still have the darning foot on the machine? If so, it is shorter than a regular foot which allows space to manually maneuver the fabric.

Also check that the presser foot pressure is activated and the feed dogs are in the up position.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Presser foot level on pfaff 1540 will not go down?


Hi Donna. The lube in your pressed bar had gone gummy. There is a spring inside the bar and it gets stuck. You will need to have a pfaff service tech clean and relube it. Could be included in a standard machine service.

Can I use modern presser feet with my Pfaff 130?


It all depends on your particular model machine.

Found on the internet, Low Shank vs High Shank:
"When presser foot is down, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar. Singer slant is for slant needle machine only. A high shank machine measures approximately 1 1/4" from the screw to the bottom of the foot."

Pfaff Presser Feet

You may be able to use snap-on feet if you can first buy the shank adapter for your machine. You can buy a whole kit of 10 or more different snap-on feet that you would be able to use with the adapter shank.

Buying brand-name accessories could get very expensive. Some believe the generics or snap-on are inferior, but that is a matter for the owner to determine after deciding how much the accessories will be used. Personally, the snap-on feet I've used serve their purpose. If I am using a foot very frequently, I will consider buying the brand-name because the quality is usually better.

You'll need to determine what shank your machine has and whether these feet will work on your machine. Frequently, you can find accessories on eBay.

Here's an example of an adapter for low shank:

The presser foot lever keeps falling down when set in the up position on my Pfaff Performance 2056. How do I fix it?


The presser foot return spring needs to be replaced, it's a inexpensive repair.
This sounds like a job for a repair shop.

PFAFF sewing machine: How do I attach the gathering foot on the PFAFF 1473?


usually a gathering foot or ruffler fits on like one would fit an old style foot. Unscrew the thumb screw that holds the snap on foot holder.... and place your foot making sure the needle holder thumb screw holds the lever on the other side. And tighten the thumb screw to hold on the foot.

Good luck.

Pfaff Model 1222. The drive belt seizes up and


Try lowering the presser foot lever one click down (needle down presser foot up position). You maybe in the bobbin winding mode that is why it is locked up for your safety, you don't want to puncture any body part while winding the bobbin. It locks up the needle and the balance wheel while it allows the winder to spin.

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
