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.

Change bulb on 6085 PFAFF


Looks like you bulb is a bayonet style. Push up and rotate the old bulb to remove. Install the new bulb the same way--push up & rotate to lock in place.

Note: there is also a bulb remover tool

Can't get the bulb out of my Triptronic 1171


The heat has probably fixed it in, the only other way is to make sure the plug is out of the wall, break the bulb and then twist the metal part out with a pair of pliers

Pfaff 1171 stops working and then runs again after cooling down for a period of time.


I've been sewing for over 30 years and I would not buy a sewing
machine that stops and has to cool down for awhile.

Remove end cover to access changing bulb and cleaning mechanism


Hi paintbox,

There's actually a light-bulb changer available from Pfaff (at least it used to be available). Your Pfaff dealer should be able to get one for you. Makes it a breeze to change lightbulbs.

However... if it is no longer available or your dealer can't get it, you can remove the side cover - raise the handle and look down inside the machine BEHIND the left side of the handle. You should be able to look down inside the machine and see the top of a screw and fit a screwdriver into the space to loosen the cover. Just make sure when you put the cover back on that you tighten the screw down tightly - don't want it falling off while you're sewing!

Hope this helps,
Kim
