    That works great! Use a Torex T-25 driver to fit screw. Use leather gloves to protect hands if bulb breaks. It is in there very tight. Turn off power first.

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,

Thank you so much for this information. I was going crazy on why it was not visible to take the side panel. I looked all over the Internet and found you.

How do I change a light bulb in my Bernina 707?

I don't have a 707 but do have a 530-2 Record. Unfortunately, with some of these older machines, Bernina did not provide a very good method for accessing the light bulb. On later machines, the side cover would either be hinged or removable. If yours doesn't have this capability, the only way of changing the bulb is by reaching in with your fingertips, gripping, and turning the bulb to remove it and then installing the new bulb in the reverse manner (difficult for someone with big fingers). Sometimes it helps to use thin rubber gloves (like the surgical type), lightly moisten the finger tips to provide more "grip." There is also a sewing tool available that is somewhat like a pencil with a rubber suction at the end made specifically to help with replacing sewing machine bulbs. If you are creative, you may be able to fashion something similar.

Have you tried LED bulbs? I've installed them in all my Berninas. They provide a lot more light and do not get as hot as the regular bulbs--as well as, they supposedly last much longer! They seem expensive at the outset but if I never have to change a bulb again, so much the better!

In case you need it, here is the manual for your machine:

How to change bulb in BL3100

I can locate no information on your particular machine--even whether it is a serger or sewing machine.

However, sometimes the bulbs are accessible from below where the bulb is located. In some cases, rubber fingers, rubber garden gloves, or a tool will help provide the grip needed to grasp the bulb to remove it.

How do I change the light bulb

remove the end cover ( screw at the back and hinge out or any other method of removing the end cover
that will reveal the bulb holder on some machines it is necessary to undo the screws holding the holder so that access to the bulb is allowed
make sure that the power is off and disconnected at the power point
the bulb will be most probably be screw it type but some are baynot type ( press in and 1/4 turn
only use the correct bulb in replacing as the wrong bulb will cause the holder to burn from the heat

Change a light bulb in Bernina 1008 sewing machinge

If you still have original Acessories there should have been a grey or brown cone shaped rubber gripper that could be slid up on bulb to assist in turning it If not remove the side cover, then back cover to access the bulb. Some 1008's have push in bulb others screw in so be careful not to break bulb as you remove it
push in bulbs must be pushe in and rotated 45 degrees counter clockwise to remove. Of course screw in bulbs just rotated counter clockwise to remove

Bulb change, Pfaff Hobbymatic 927

Access may be a little awkward...remove side cover to gain space.
Either push and twist (bayonet) or unscrew anticlockwise.
Take to the dealer for replacement and they will likely do and show for no extra fee !!

Need to locate a lamp changer for the Pfaff 7570

You my be able to change the light bulb without one. On some versions of the Pfaff 7570, you can remove the left end of the machine to access the bulb socket: remove the top cover that has all the designs pictured on it. Lift the carrying handle. Immediately behind the handle is a hole about 3mm in diameter. Down in that hole, probably too far down to see, there is a phillips head screw. Drop a Phillips head screwdriver into the hole, set it into the screw head and unscrew that screw. This will loosen the left end cap. Pull toward the left to remove this piece and you can access the bulb and socket.

I have a Pfaff 7570 and I would like to adjust the thread tension. Most of the time when embroidering it is set at 1 or 0...and never higher than 3-4. Also I can't get the light bulb end out. it broke...

Lift top cover. remove top cover (flat springs on each end of cover - move one with your finger and top will come off. Lift handle. Look to right of handle end over the head. There is a screw there. LOOSEN screw and front cover will slide away from head. Bunch up a paper towel or napkin and press into broken bulb socket and turn same counter clockwise to get bulb socket out. Good Luck!

While sewing on the pfaff 7570, light keeps going on and off

Looks like you need a new bulb. This machine takes a bayonet style bulb, part number 2PCW is the generic one but you can pay more for a frosted one ($2-$4). To replace you need to remove the lamp cover. Depending on the age of your machine you may either need a phillips or #25 star (torx) driver. The screw is hard to find, it lift the handle up and look just to the rear of it on the left side, there should be a small square hole. The screw is under it. Alternately there is another, smaller hole just to the rear of the first one. You can take your seam guide (or a coat hanger) insert it and push down about 1", the lamp fixture is spring loaded and the end of the bulb will appear below while you push down. While holding down on the spring, push up on the bulb and turn to the left and it should pop out. (note some early models do not have the access hole to the screw, in this case you need to remove the top tray insert, 2 very small phillips screws, then you can see the lamp cover screw).

As to the battery problem, there is a cover on the bottom of the machine that you can pry off. There are 2 AA batteries inside. Remove and replace, you may need to clean the contacts if any corrosion is seen.

best of luck to you!
