Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have encountered a problem with my pfaff 2170 sewing/embroidery machine. I have previously been able to used the machine perfectly fine with no problems until recently. Lately, a message pops up stating that 'sensor 4 not found' and the unit continues to create a random design for the entire duration of the original design selected. I would really appreciate it if you could shed some light on the cause of this problem as i have no idea of these sensors.

Computerized sewing/embroidery machines need to be serviced by an authorized dealer.

Poking around a computer can cause more damage than good if you do not know what you are doing.

I have a 3D/ Pfaff 2170 Creative & I'm using Windows XP. No device found error. I can not transfer the embroidery design to 2170 Pfaff. Help!


Sounds like you don't have the device driver on you computer for the sewing machine. Question: Did it ever work? If it used to work but doesn't now, try using a different cable from the computer to the sewing machine. You can also try rebooting the computer (with the sewing machine connected and powered up) to see if it will locate the machine.

The Pfaff 7570 Creative Designer is a computerized sewingand embroidery machine that has the ability to connect to the computer, andhave embroidery designs sent to the embroidery machine. The sewing andembroidery machine has many features, including hundreds of general sewingfunctions, a separate embroidery module, and on-screen editing features. TheCreative Designer 7570, manufactured in the 1990s, was the first sewing andembroidery combination machine ever made by Pfaff.

1. Usingthe Sewing Machine
1 Turn on your sewing machine using the "On"button located just below the turn wheel on the right side of the machine.Thread your Pfaff 7570. Note that Pfaff sewing machines thread from left toright, not right to left like other sewing machines. The upper tension discsshould be raised at their highest position while threading, and the presserfoot should be raised up until you thread the needle. Drop the presser footright before you thread the needle. The prevents thread problems during use. 2 Insert a full bobbin and retrieve the bobbin threadthrough the thread plate. Raise your sewing foot and needle to its highestposition; hold the needle thread taught with your left hand, lower the needleinto the thread plate using your right hand, and then raise the needle. As youraise the needle, the needle thread will catch the bobbin thread, and pull itup. There should be a loop of thread intertwined with the needle thread. Usetweezers, your finger, or a straight pin to retrieve the bobbin thread that isvisible through the thread plate, and pull it through the plate. 3 Place the fabric under the presser foot, and drop thepresser foot. Choose the stitch you want to use from the top stitch display,right above the top thread feed. Press the '0-9" button located on thesewing machine's front panel, and a display screen will come up. Input thethread number, and press the 'OK' button located on the sewing machine's frontpanel. The stitch will display, and you are ready to sew. Repeat Step 3 foreach stitch you want to use.

2. SettingUp the Embroidery Unit
1 Turn the sewing machine off. Take out the embroiderymachine unit, locate the connection bushing on the back of your embroideryunit, and match it up with the connection bushing on your sewing machine. Theconnection bushing should be located next to a yellow sticker on yourembroidery unit, and somewhat resembles a serial port on a computer. Slide theembroidery unit onto the sewing machine with the sewing machine turned off. Connectto the bushing carefully as you slide the embroidery unit onto the sewingmachine. Use your embroidery unit manual if you need assistance. 2 Insert an embroidery card. Your embroidery unitshould contain an embroidery card labeled embroidery card 1. Use that or useanother Pfaff 7570 card that you own. Turn on the sewing machine. 3 Open the bobbin case area just below the threadplate, and lower the feed dogs by pushing the feed dog switch to the right.Press the card button located on the front face of your sewing machine. Adisplay with pop up; choose embroidery designs or monogram and a new screenwill pop up with your design choices. Choose the design you want, and press"OK." A checklist screen appears. Do everything on the checklist, andpress "OK." Use your embroidery unit manual if you need help. 4 Start embroidery by pressing the foot pedal. At thistime, your hoop should already be attached to the embroidery unit becauseyou've already gone through the checklist. Your embroidery manual displayscolored picture diagrams that are very helpful in understanding everything inyour checklist menu.

PLEASE HELP!!! Pfaff creative 7570 tension problems


Check your bobbin tension also. Embroidery bobbin thread is finer than sewing thread and you may need to make adjustment on the bobbing case by turning the small screw slightly. The type of stabilizer can affect your embroidery. An excellent reference for machine embroidery is Embroidery Machine Essentials by Jeanine Twigg, available on Amazon.
