SOURCE: free motion

If the machine works on regular stitching and only messes up on free motion ,the most likely problem is the presser foot has not been lowered. Get everything ready to sew, lower the presser foot lever and pull on the upper thread near the take up lever. It should have tension on it. Raise the foot and try again, it should not have tension on it . If this is what you get, lower the presser foot lever and try it again.

SOURCE: Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1

I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.

Speak to the Pfaff dealer where you bought it and tell them....they will probably arrange a replacement with little fuss.

SOURCE: My Pfaff 1475 CD stated batterie pile battery when

turn the machine to "on". Tip the machine on its back and you will see a little door on the left-hand side. Open the door from left to right and inside are two AA batteries. Change the batteries (both batteries go in with the at the top). Close the door, upright the machine, turn it off and turn it on again. The display will be 0 0 2.5. It's now ready to go.

Pfaff 113 want to free motion quilt the foot will not allow me to se. I even took the screw for adjusting preasure all the way out and it still has too much preassure


Sounds like perhaps you have the incorrect foot. Did you perhaps purchase a quilting foot (used for piecing)? A free motion foot is actually shorter in height so it will not contact the feed dogs or needle plate. It is this added space that allows the fabric to be moved freely under the foot. Also, be sure to drop the feed dogs.

If the presser foot is still too long, perhaps the shank is not correct for your machine. Sorry, am unable to locate information re your particular model.

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 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.

Looking for repair manual for pfaff 1475 sewing machine


There are a number of sites that offer the Instruction Manual for a fee. See the following:

http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-pfaff-1475.aspx

I was able to find a free download of the Instruction Manual for the 1473 if that would be of any assistance:

http://s2.vsmgroup.com/VSM/Pfaff/pfaffmanual.nsf
Not sure if these will have enough information to help with repair but perhaps the 1473 manual will give you an idea whether the information you require is likely to be in the Instruction Manual before you purchase.
