How do you open the sewing head to change bulb on Pfaff 955 hobbymatic


To access the light bulb, use the button-hole foot to lift up the insert on the arm cover. Remove the cover. Hold the edge guide slightly tilted and push it into the opening in the head of the sewing machine. Press down on the lamp housing to hold it still. Push up on the bulb and turn it counter-clockwise. Once the bulb is loose, pull it down and out of the lamp housing. To replace the bulb, continue to hold the lamp housing. Push the new bulb into the housing and rotate it clockwise. Release the lamp housing and then use the button-hole foot to replace the cover.

Pfaff has the manuals for most of their machines here: http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Support-and-Updates/Support . The Hobbymatic 955 support page is http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Support/3529 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Pfaff_935_955_HobbyMATIC-manual-EN-FR-DE-NL.PDF . See page 51 (page 59 of the PDF) for the directions to change the light bulb, These pictures may help you see how to get to the bulb. If you need a replacement button-hole foot, see http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/buttonhole-foot-low-shank-new-1932l.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Looking for how to lower the pressure foot on model 16782


Are you talking about presser foot pressure--the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs?

Some machines have a dial that can raise or lower the pressure.

Some machines have a screw located at the top of the presser foot bar that can be tightened or loosened. (Unfortunately, manufacturers usually did not include this information in the user's manual.)

Even older machines sometimes have a spring-loaded push-button on the top left of the machine. When pushed in, it collapses the spring that applies less or more pressure to the presser foot. The inner button actually applies the pressure in "degrees" which is regulated by how far the button is pushed in. To release this pressure button, press on the outside ring to release the spring. (Incidentally, it is a good practice to release this spring when you are finished sewing. Storing it with the spring compressed may eventually cause the spring to lose its effectiveness.)

How do I tilt my machine back to access the oil pan? The knee lifter bar is in the way and hit when I try to tilt my machine.


I don't know if you were the person that I was just writing to or not. I didn't think about the knee lift. I generally sew on a Juki DDL-5800 and we don't have the knee lift problem. I have an older walking foot with the knee lift. You might try what works with that one. Grab the front of the knee lift, push it towards the back and at the same time pull it up and left. There is a metal peg at the back of the shaft that will release and let you pull the knee lift out so that you can push the machine back. If that doesn't work, see if you can contact me and I can call someone else to find out.

How do I remove the top on a Bernina 807 in order to chnage th elong belt ?


V-Belt replacement 801/801 Up Machines

Only the belt cover needs to be removed for this belt change. This is done by removing the three screws on the end/belt cover. Loosen the 5mm Allen socket head screw below the step pulley to relieve the belt tension. Remove the lower motor belt. Lift the step pulley and slide off the hand-wheel, (assuming that you have already removed the release knob and clutch ring).



Additional top cover removals 807/801 Minimatic machines

Early 807 machines had two expansion nipples in the top cover that fit into receptor holes in the upper arm frame. Simply pull up the top cover.

Very late models may have a push button latch mechanism, same as on the 801 machines except those fitted with carrying handles, i.e. 801 Sport, 810 machines.

This is accessed by opening the light cover and finding an aluminum knob in the upper left hand corner of the upper arm frame. Push this in and the cover will release. Lift off the top cover.

Most machines have a button that is on the front of the machine. It is located on the front with machine with the stitch selections. The button is pushed in. Push the center button again and if that doesn't work, push the outer edge of the button and it will release.

How do I work the pressure foot on a Baby Lock BL6300 machine?


The button is usually on top of the head, on the left side. There should be a part you can push down in the center. the outer ring turns to release the pressure foot. Here is a link to the manuals. http://www.babylock.com/downloads/manuals/

Husqvarna Viking Sweden Model 6030


On all sewing machines there is a button or lever which makes the machine go backward. The button could be stuck, if so put a drop of oil on it and try to release it. If there is a lever that has been raised which puts the machine in reverse, simply lower it to the lowest position. This should solve the problem.

Reverse only?


Hi,

I too just aquired a husqvarna viking 6030 that was stuck in straight-stitch reverse. No forward, no zig zag, no button hole, no cam stitches. I also suspected a broken spring, since the reverse button was slack and had no resistance. But after inspecting every moving part, I realized it was just stuck from many years of non-use. I finally got it free today! I had used some Tri-Flow oil and applied it sparingly to all moving points (but not belts or motor). I exercised all the buttons and like another poster (either here or elsewhere, not sure) I used my hair dryer to apply heat to the inside of the machine through the cam slot. After you remove the white cover on back of machine that holds the two spool spindles, you will see a formed aluminum part just behind the reverse dial that has a rounded-pointed protrusion which sort of looks like a fat flat head screwdriver. It is supposed to travel in an up-down motion when reverse button is pressed. I used a flat head driver to coax its movement, and once it began moving, I continued with heat and drops of oil. Good luck.
