Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines

Open Question

Good day. We have a Pfaff 1473 CD sewing machine which has not been worked on but when wanting to sew today we found it to be "stuck".

The wheel cannot be turned by hand, nor does it turn when the foot pedal is used. could you kindly advise?

Chances are you have a small piece of thread stuck in the raceway, turn the balance wheel bac kwards and you may free it off otherwise take out the bobbin and bobbin case and the raceway if you have the type with a drop down gate and clear it.

Independent repair shops will work on any model, it's the parts they have no control of. The good thing is that we have ebay, where most hard to find parts always pop up. All or 95% of sewing machine stores here in Bay Area Ca. sell and service PFAFF, even vintage metal mechanical models.

SOURCE: Sewing machine does not sew.

Call Singer at 1-800-4singer and ask for their advice, you do not want to void your warranty with not going to an authorized repair service if it comes to that. Good luck

SOURCE: Hi I have a Babylock

So you can turn the wheel manually but the same wheel that turns manually does not turn with the foot pedal. But when you press the foot pedal you hear the motor engage and move / rotate? If so then the motor assembly has a problem on your sewing machine...

Please confirm the scenario I wrote here is in fact what is going on with your machine.

Just reply to my answer here and I can help.

Thanks,
Tim

I have a 3D/ Pfaff 2170 Creative & I'm using Windows XP. No device found error. I can not transfer the embroidery design to 2170 Pfaff. Help!


Sounds like you don't have the device driver on you computer for the sewing machine. Question: Did it ever work? If it used to work but doesn't now, try using a different cable from the computer to the sewing machine. You can also try rebooting the computer (with the sewing machine connected and powered up) to see if it will locate the machine.

Pfaff 1475 manual


Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

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.
