There are two holes running vertically inside the needle arm.........the needles are held firm by very small screws or hex allen keys.........they may have worked loose over time, if they have fallen out and been lost, it is a call to your  local Pfaff dealer for advice......be sure to quote model number.
Your User manual may have a diagram to assist.

Have you ever changed the needles since buying this machine ??
Needles ought to be changed every 6 - 8 hrs of sewing, and more often with heavy or abrasive fabric.

I have a Pfaff 230. The lever to move the needle to the left or right is not working? It is stuck in the Left position. Suggestions to release without taking it in as heavy to transport


I have a Pfaff 260 that was totally frozen when I bought it at a thrift store. The old oil had turned to glue and seized the moving parts. I followed the process described below and my Pfaff 260 now has a prominent working place in my sewing room.

My bobbin winds unevenly, there is always more thread at the bottom of it than there is at the top. Neither switching to the original pfaff bobbin nor either spool position works.


I always use my finger to guide the thread as the bobbin is winding,the bobbin shouldn't be moving around in the metalcase probably needs tightened.

How to open the top of the Pfaff 7570 machine to clean


Don't bother going in from the top. Don't take out those two screws you see under the handle...they have nuts on the bottom and will drop off. Instead use a Torex screwdriver (think it is #25) and loosen, do not remove, the screw you see down in the left hand space when you raise handle. Screw head is about 2-3 inches down. Use a flashlight. After loosening screw, pull left cover off to expose lightbulb (easy to change now) and other mechanical stuff...you can use compressed air to blow out lint or a brush. Usually not needing oil, but a very little on some of the moving parts helps.

Need to locate a lamp changer for the Pfaff 7570


You my be able to change the light bulb without one. On some versions of the Pfaff 7570, you can remove the left end of the machine to access the bulb socket: remove the top cover that has all the designs pictured on it. Lift the carrying handle. Immediately behind the handle is a hole about 3mm in diameter. Down in that hole, probably too far down to see, there is a phillips head screw. Drop a Phillips head screwdriver into the hole, set it into the screw head and unscrew that screw. This will loosen the left end cap. Pull toward the left to remove this piece and you can access the bulb and socket.

Tension Problem on Pfaff 2034, bobbin loops


Rule of thumb.. Loops on the bottom, problem on the top. Loops on the top, problems on the bottom.

Set your upper tension at 4, and rethread the machine from the top. Just before you thread the needle, but the presser foot down. If the thread pulls right thru easily, then the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. Because, if you can't pull the thread thru with the presser foot down, you have it threaded right.

Threading a pfaff creative 7570


Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.
