7570 Presser foot leaver..Slow to dropp down

I have a 7570 Phfaff creative. The Presser foot leaver and shaft is slow to drop down or not at all. I have used the machine oil on the shaft and cleaned with a q-tip. It works for a short time and then will go back to the slow drop down or not drop at all. Any ideas?
Thanks from down South..

Good morning,

If it's been a while (more than a year) since you've had your 7570 serviced by an authorized Pfaff tech, it's likely that it's just gotten gummed up and needs some attention and adjusting.

It's definitely fixable, but not something that you'll likely be able to do yourself - some of those parts are just not easy to get to and the lubricants needed aren't directly available.

Hope this helps,
Kim & Linnette

Presser foot won't go completely down

Have you checked for something stuck in it? Even a small pin can do a lot of damage and jam the spring. Give it a good shake. If you can't get inside, try taking a vacuum nozzle over it.
Fortunately the foot pedal is probably the easiest part of a sewing machine to replace if it is damaged beyond repair..

Cant get machine to embroider

there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.

My presser foot "handle" is stuck on my Pfaff Creative 7550, I can't move it to use my machine. I don't see anything wrong, any suggestions?

Yikes! I bet that since it has sat for so long that you have some corrosion not allowing the foot bar to be moved.

Sewing foot will not drop

Do you mean the actual foot or do you mean the presser bar with the foot on it?

My pressure foot is very slow to go down.

Put a drop of WD40 on the top of the presser bar and leave it overnight then work the presser bar lever up and down a few times.

I just need to know where to put the oil in my PFAFF 7570?

Around the bobbin track, a drop should do. Anywhere else uses a different viscosity oil and grease. If you oil parts besides the above mentioned, you have lint build up and that's going to slow things down.

Threading a pfaff creative 7570

Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.
