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.

My pfaff hobbymatic 875 is skipping thread on the bobbin side


Be sure to use a brand new needle. If the needle is bent or damaged, it will frequently skip stitches. Also, if you are using the incorrect needle for the fabric & thread you are using, it will skip stitches, ie a ball point needle on woven fabric.

Tiptronic 2020 stitches not working.


I would call the repair shop and tell them what the machine is
doing and tell them the machine was making the stitches before
and now it's not, and ask them why is the machine messing up?
it's possible that the machine motherboard is going out or the panel
where the buttons are has gone out.

I need a free pfaff hobbymatic 917 instruction manual


For many of the Phaff machines, you can search and find your machine at this link, and download the .pdf file, then print out. This is FREE, no charge, and available to anyone. I searched and found it by luck. Note, your model may be included in other model numbers. My wife's Phaff Hobbymatic 927(Made in West Germany) manual includes the 917 and 947 models. Good luck, hope this helps.

I can't get my Pfaff 230a to straight stitch!


The stitch selector switch is most likely the culprit. Have you tried operating the machine upside down?

My pfaff hobbymatic has stopped doing zigzag and the needle is stuck on the right hand side


Check your needle position selector, it must be selected to the right position for special application. Default must be in the center position. If it doesn't want to center itself when straight stitch is selected then I would thing a link inside came loose and a repair person should assess your problem specially if having no experience working on them.
