Pfaff 2170 Query

This is regarding a Pfaff Creative 2170 machine purchased from Dubai dealer. The machine is now being used in Kerala, India.

Recently, the machine was showing some technical problems and the error display coming on the screen was "Main Motor Block". We got it checked with a local technician who is familiar with PFAFF machine and found out that the carbon brush has worn out. He replaced it with a similar one, but still could not solve the problem. The machine stops and the error message is displayed after working for around 45 minutes. His view is that, the motor gets heated up because of not using the original spare. Is it correct or is there any other area to be checked to diagnose the fault

Is there a free motion ruler foot that will fit my Pfaff Creative 1467?

Your Pfaff dealer may have what you need. However, there are a lot of rulers out there. You can look for a Pfaff users group (check Yahoo) and query those users. They will generally have a lot of helpful advice.

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.
