Question about Kenmore 15218 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I have a Pfaff creative 1471. When I turn it on the light flashes across like normal, but the computer display is blank. The normal little reset of the machine does not occur and the machine will not run. Any suggestions!?!?!?

    I had pretty much the same problem. The changing the batteries. That took care of my issues.

The 1471 is getting on in years. It is not uncommon for the PC board to develop a fault. It can be replaced, however, cost is prohibitive unless you can find a repairer with a 'good' used board.
Good luck

SOURCE: can a circuit board be repaird for a pfaff 1471?

I just got a quote for a replacement board for a 1475. It's approx $480 though. Talk to your Pfaff dealer. Mine did a free estimate.

I have a Pfaff Creative 1471 and the pressure foot is very slow to come down and then is not keeping the proper pressure on the material. How do I open the machine to see if I just need to clean and oil?


I have had my machine for many years and this is about the only problem I have had with it. I had taken it to 2 different repairs shops about 2 years ago and the repair worked only temporarily. The only reason I had not tried this solution before is that I didn't know how to get the side cover off to reach the mechanism. I just recently learned how and the oil worked like a charm after a little cleaning with a Q-tip. At least now if the problem reoccurs, the fix will be easy and free.
