    My display screen on my Pfaff 7570 shows a drawing of a computer on the left and sewing machine on the right. A line with an arrow points from the machine to the computer. I have never hooked this machine up to a computer nor to the embroidery attachment. When this happens the machine locks up and won't sew. I can power off and when I power on again the utility stitches appear on the screen again but only for an instant. I had it cleaned and serviced but the tech said it did not happen while it was being worked on. I called Pfaff customer service for hheelp but was told that nobody there knows anything about machines as old as mine. Fixya members seem to have and love lots of machines that are as old. Can anyone advise me?

There could be something wrong with the computer motherboard, not doing the commands, having it checked would be a good idea

SOURCE: no communication between pfaff 7570 and computer

It sounds like you have it configured properly if you have the little machine and computer appearing on the display screen. I had this problem too in the beginning, file assistant doesn't use the files for the 7570 its only for some of the newer machines, use Vip customize to send the design to the machine from the file drop down menu. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a PFAFF 360 sewing machine. I can not get it out of zizzag

If you can get into the top of the machine you will probably find that the old oil has congealed,you need to try some WD40 first of all to see if that frees the cam off

SOURCE: foot pedal not working

yes, it is possible that the foot pedal can go out,, it would be a good
idea to have the foot pedal checked at a repair shop to see for

I cant get my stitch Width Zig zag knob to turn om my bernina record 930. Any one have this problem?

Most likely because your machine has not been serviced (oiled & cleaned) in a long time and the old oil has turned to glue and seized. This is probably the most common problem with mechanical sewing machines. A mechanical sewing machine should be regularly every 40 hours of sewing use or at least every six months when not in use. You may want to take it to a Bernina service technician. Ask for a bottle of Bernina oil for CB hook machines and ask if they will show you how to oil it.

If this is a Pfaff, you haven't changed the width settings that allow the machine to sew the other decorative and utility stitches.

Take the needle out and put it back in carefully. If that doesn't solve the prob, replace it with another needle, and hopefully it will return to working.

Serger won't chain off a stitch. Stitches won't chain and hold to fabric. Added new needle, rethreaded whole machine. Stitches won't connect to fabric or make a chain.

is it possible that the needles are in backwards?
it's very possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop to be retimed

Sewing machine wont stitch in reverse, needle hitting bobbin feed.

since the needle is hitting the bobbin feed it has to be replaced, if the machine continues to hit the bobbin feed the most likely the machine is out of time & has to be retimed at a sewing machine repair shop
they would also be able to see why the machine won't stitch in reverse
