Question about PfaFF Creative 7570

Pfaff Creative 1371

Haven't used my machine for several years. When I set it up today to use it, the presser foot seems to be stuck--it will not go down. The presser bar lever works up and down, but the foot does not move.

    Thanks -- I tried the oil, but still will not budge. The wheel just does not turn.

    Thank you for your efforts. I finally broke down and took it to the sewing machine shop -- they said it was totally seized up and had to send it to their repair center.

I have a Pfaff creative 1371, all the lights on the switches are on ,and it wont do anything .have tried pressing the corrector switch,turning off ect but nothing does this mean its toast .Tina

NO! It may not be toast! Have you tried pressing the needle down button? This recently happened with my Pfaff 1467, and it turned out to be a short in the foot control. Check the power cord to your foot control, giggle it, and if you have a meter, check to see if the correct amount of voltage is running through it. Then, gently unscrew it and take it apart to make sure there are no loose or frayed wires. We did this twice, over the last few years, before we just gave up and bought a new foot pedal.

Can I use modern presser feet with my Pfaff 130?

It all depends on your particular model machine.

Found on the internet, Low Shank vs High Shank:
"When presser foot is down, measure the distance from the bottom of foot to screw-hole that holds the foot onto the presser bar. Singer slant is for slant needle machine only. A high shank machine measures approximately 1 1/4" from the screw to the bottom of the foot."

Pfaff Presser Feet

You may be able to use snap-on feet if you can first buy the shank adapter for your machine. You can buy a whole kit of 10 or more different snap-on feet that you would be able to use with the adapter shank.

Buying brand-name accessories could get very expensive. Some believe the generics or snap-on are inferior, but that is a matter for the owner to determine after deciding how much the accessories will be used. Personally, the snap-on feet I've used serve their purpose. If I am using a foot very frequently, I will consider buying the brand-name because the quality is usually better.

You'll need to determine what shank your machine has and whether these feet will work on your machine. Frequently, you can find accessories on eBay.

Here's an example of an adapter for low shank:

Presser foot

If your footer have been in storage for so long, there must be some rust accumulating in the footer, you should have a technician take a look at it.

My presser foot "handle" is stuck on my Pfaff Creative 7550, I can't move it to use my machine. I don't see anything wrong, any suggestions?

Yikes! I bet that since it has sat for so long that you have some corrosion not allowing the foot bar to be moved.

Presser foot does not lower.

I had the same problem ! I had to take it to be repaired, they had to take it apart & grease the whole thing, I hadn't used the machine in a couple of years & the original "grease" became too hard for the foot to come down.

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T

the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

The foot doesn't go down enough to reach the feed dogs

The presser bar may be stuck and may need some WD40 on the top so it seeps down the needle bar, or the presser foot dial or adjuster is set to 0, or the presser bar spring has broken, or the block and screw on the presser bar where the lever is has come loose.
