SOURCE: Pfaff 6122 Problem

Your machine just needs to be tuned up an the part inside that lower and raises the presser foot needs to be re-lubricated.  Lint, dust, dryness and the machine not being used can cause this issue with most pfaff machines (including my 7570).  A standard tune up from your local PFAFF dealer will remedy this.

SOURCE: How do I remove the face plates on a Pfaff

The plate is not screwed in, it is held tight by a couple of metal springs on each side. Just take a small regular screw driver and gently pry up the face plate. You may have the presser foot lowered by the switch on the right side of the bobbin/shuttle area slide it so the presser feet raise.

My pfaff 1475 CD thread is loopy on bottom and breaks on top.


Look very closely at your sample stitching and determine which thread (top or bobbin) is looping and which is breaking. That will narrow down where the problem exists.

A top thread that loops and makes thread "barfs" under the fabric is generally an upper thread tension problem.
Try: Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Set the upper tension to the midway point (probably will need to tweak this tension depending on your machine).

I couldn't lift the lever of the pressure foot in novamatic. 2000 sewing machines


Try to remove the latch on the foot. It sounds like the foot is nailed down with thread. You should be able to move the foot control up and down. You can remove the front of the machine and peak in at the foot lever to see if you see if there are any globs of thread.

Pfaff 1475 manual


Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

Pfaff 1371 pressure foot won't come down on it's own


I just addressed this issue with my 6110. There is a spring in the shaft for the pressure foot. Over time the white grease that lubricates the spring and the plastic piston at the top dried up, gumming up the works. I took it all apart, cleaned out the bad (now hard grease), re-greased and put it all back together. Works like new. I used a lithium grease as it is easy on plastic parts.

I have a pfaff hobbylock 796.


Has any little kids been around lately? Have they had access to your sewing area and machine? (thinking perhaps the pressure foot tension has been tightened down) If it has been tightened, losen it a couple turns, see if that helps (remember, left to loosen, right to tighten)

When is the last time you oiled this machine? Typically sergers require a clean and oil each time you go to use them. Locate the bar that correlates to the presser foot add a drop of oil to the bar and let it seep in. After a few minutes try lifting the presser foot.

Also does the presser foot lever move at all?
