SOURCE: pfaff 1471 foot problem. Foot wont go down all

Try lubricating the pressure foot shaft where it slides up and down (2 Places). To do this you need to remove the left side cover - the flat black screw in the slot under the left side of the carrying handle. Back the screw off slightly and pull off the left side plate. This should allow you to oil the shaft. I use Mobile 1 Synthetic 0W-20 oil. I find it works extremely well, as good or better than sewing machine oil. The problem is caused by the original grease they used when these machines were manufactured. The grease hardens over time (especially if the machine hasn't been used for awhile) and causes the shaft to stick. You might need to use a little penetrating oil initially, especially if the shaft is really stuck. This is a fine machine - good luck... LS.

SOURCE: Please please help me someone, the presser foot of my sewing mashine pfaff 2056 is stopped working. Where can be a problem?

Your cam lever is probably broke. I'm not exactly familiar with your machine but see if you can get into that area to verify. If that is too much of a challenge. Take it in for repair

Help! I have a Pfaff Hobbymatic 807 that my mother in law owned. I can not for the life of me find a way to reduce the pressure on the sewing foot. Sewing cotton over fleece


If your machine does not have a pressure regulator (and some machines do not), you can make sewing thicker projects easier by using a walking foot. If you are sewing a quilt (two or more pieces of fabric and batting), a walking foot would be the preferred presser foot. Even reducing the pressure will not be enough.

Pfaff 7550 presser foot will not go all the way down after using darning foot and returning to regular sewing.


By chance, do you still have the darning foot on the machine? If so, it is shorter than a regular foot which allows space to manually maneuver the fabric.

Also check that the presser foot pressure is activated and the feed dogs are in the up position.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Pfaff 1371 pressure foot won't come down on it's own


I just addressed this issue with my 6110. There is a spring in the shaft for the pressure foot. Over time the white grease that lubricates the spring and the plastic piston at the top dried up, gumming up the works. I took it all apart, cleaned out the bad (now hard grease), re-greased and put it all back together. Works like new. I used a lithium grease as it is easy on plastic parts.

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.
