Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Pfaff Creative 1472 Anniversary Edition with a recurring problem. I cannot lower the presser bar completely to sit snugly on the fabric. I have to use my hands to push down on the machine foot to try and get it snug enough to sew. Any advice?

This is a very common problem with Pfaff machines. The presser system needs oil in the right places. If you are mechanically inclined I can give you step by step instructions how to repair it. An air compressor is very helpful.

The presser foot on my Pfaff Tipmatic 6122 will not stay down, so the fabric will not feed.


It sounds like the pressed bar is sticking and will not push down completely and is difficult to lift. I have come across them many times on the older pfaffs. Unfortunately that is not sometime that can be fixed at home. It is caused by the lube going bad inside the pressed bar that lubbricates the spring that is inside the pressed bar. Find a pfaff dealer that knows about older pfaffs and they should be able to help.

My Pfaff anniversary edition 1472 presser lever will not fully defend and leaves a gap above the material, it therefore does not sew correctly. I am quite handy. Can i fix this?


If you really are a "do-it-yourselfer" I would suggest getting a service manual for your machine (search the internet - try sewusa.com). The manual will describe what adjustments are available and how to get at them. Note that the covers on most machines are held by screws and hidden catches that have to be pried open.

Cant get machine to embroider


there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.

Model 6091. I can't get the presser foot to go completely down and rest on the fabric. Can you help?


This is a comon problem with the pfaff 7570. The spring that applys the presser to the foot is all gumed up and needs to be removed cleaned and lubricated. I dont know if you want to try this yourself. You will need to remove the top and side covers and upper tension unit. Can be tricky. A pfaff repair shop should charge around $30. I will go over the steps if you want, let me know. But like i said i can be tricky.

How do I remove the face plates on a Pfaff creative 1475 cd sewing machine so I can get inside to find out why the presser foot lifter is not working properly. It will raise up but it goes down slowly (not...


The plate is not screwed in, it is held tight by a couple of metal springs on each side. Just take a small regular screw driver and gently pry up the face plate. You may have the presser foot lowered by the switch on the right side of the bobbin/shuttle area slide it so the presser feet raise.

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.

How to stipple with Pfaff 7550


Make sure you have the presser lifter lever in the proper position. When lowering it, push to the rear and it will stop half way down. This engages the upper tension but keeps the foot from lowering down and touching the fabric.
If this doesn't help please post the exact problem, i.e. thread pulling to the bottom etc.
Good luck!

Presser foot 7 lever on Pfaff 1471


You may not be using the correct presser foot for your machine.

You may be using a low shank when your machine needs a high shank.
