On the top of the head there is a rectangular opening (about 1/4 inch x 1/2 inch). If you look in there with a flash light, you will see a screw with a star head. If you loosen this screw (don't take it out just loosen it) the head will come right off. The slot screw driver that came with my machine actually fits right in there and works great.

There are broken lightbulb removal tools but the ones I found are pretty much for regular ceiling lightbulbs and probably wouldn't work on a small sewing machine bulb. There's a tool shown here but I don't know where you would find it.

Perhaps this would be helpful:
Pfixing the Pfaff (further down the page, it shows how to remove the side cover--after removing the top cover first!)

Be sure to unplug your machine first!!!

You might try using a very long needlenose plier. Stick the needlenose up inside the bulb, then open the pliers until the outside of the nose is tight against the bulb socket and try twisting. If it doesn't grip enough, you might try putting something like a rubber finger over the nose tip. (If there is no broken glass left, you may even be able to put a rubber finger on a fat pencil or even your finger up there and twist.)

Something else that may work is using a fat school eraser, trimming it down to fit in the broken socket.

I would even consider putting super glue on a fat pencil eraser end, sticking it up there and letting it adhere, then giving it a twist.

Good luck!

Pfaff Creative 1475 CD Hi. Something is loose or broke inside the machine at the top right. I can see inside where the bobbin is pre-wound and the manual wheel that things are loos. How do I go about...

Quite easy - open the top cover. There are two screws - one in front of where the thread spool sits, the other up near the right hand end. Undo them and the top cover will come off.

Model 6091. I can't get the presser foot to go completely down and rest on the fabric. Can you help?

This is a comon problem with the pfaff 7570. The spring that applys the presser to the foot is all gumed up and needs to be removed cleaned and lubricated. I dont know if you want to try this yourself. You will need to remove the top and side covers and upper tension unit. Can be tricky. A pfaff repair shop should charge around $30. I will go over the steps if you want, let me know. But like i said i can be tricky.

My thread got wrapped around the take up lever inside the machine. How can I access that to untangle it?

The side cover can be removed with a torx size 15 wrench. Looking down on the machine, you will see a small hole opening in the middle of the machine almost to the left edge-see pic (the top lid covers needs to be up to see it) and loosen the screw 3 turns. That side cover will slide off to the left now and you can access your thread. To take the thread out, turn the hand wheel backwards (to the back) while pulling on the thread.

Have a model 6091 Pfaff. The sewing foot will not lower complete

I had this same problem. On the bottom of the head there is a slide switch. Lay your machine on its back and you can easily see it. Slide it back and your problem should be solved.

How to replace light bulb at Pfaff Creative 2124?

On these machines you cannot open the left side to remove the bulb. Your machine accessory kit should have come with a rubber tool that is ribbed with a cup-shaped opening on either end. This is a tool for removing the bulb. Tilt the machine with the base facing up so you can see where the bulb is and use this tool to twist the bulb gently. It sould come out with no problem! Hope this helps!

Threads caught in the take up lever wheel

looking at the top left side you should see a hole large enough for a screwdriver and through that hole there is a screw. Loosen the screw and the left side cover should come off.
