Question about PfaFF Creative 7570

1 Answer

While sewing on my Pfaff 7570, I ran out of thread on the top feed. I can get the bobbin case out, but the machine is 'locked up'. The last time this happened I took it to the repair shop. Is there a way to release this?

Without the proper tools and some knowledge of how to disassemble this machine it is best to let a Pfaff service tech handle this problem.

Zig Zag stitch isn't consistent top stitch is sporadic


Remove all the thread from your machine. Make sure to clean around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Loosen the top tension disk all the way to zero & raise the presser foot. Dampen a piece of pearl cotton with rubbing alcohol and pull the pearl cotton gently down between the tension disk a couple of times. Consult your owner's manual and oil as instructed in the manual using ONLY fresh good quality sewing machine, applying 1-2 drops each spot indicated. Install a brand new needle. Avoid old, fuzzy, or bargain bin thread. With the presser foot in the RAISED position, rethread the top thread--verify it is threaded correctly. Reset the upper tension to about halfway between the high & low number. Make sure the bobbin case is threaded properly and verify the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case. Install bobbin case in the machine. Test stitch on a scrap piece of fabric.

If it continues to malfunction, you may need to take it for service.

The sewing andembroidery machine has many features, including hundreds of general sewingfunctions, a separate embroidery module, and on-screen editing features. TheCreative Designer 7570, manufactured in the 1990s, was the first sewing andembroidery combination machine ever made by Pfaff.

1 Turn on your sewing machine using the "On"button located just below the turn wheel on the right side of the machine.Thread your Pfaff 7570. Note that Pfaff sewing machines thread from left toright, not right to left like other sewing machines. The upper tension discsshould be raised at their highest position while threading, and the presserfoot should be raised up until you thread the needle. Drop the presser footright before you thread the needle. The prevents thread problems during use. 2 Insert a full bobbin and retrieve the bobbin threadthrough the thread plate. Raise your sewing foot and needle to its highestposition; hold the needle thread taught with your left hand, lower the needleinto the thread plate using your right hand, and then raise the needle. As youraise the needle, the needle thread will catch the bobbin thread, and pull itup. There should be a loop of thread intertwined with the needle thread. Usetweezers, your finger, or a straight pin to retrieve the bobbin thread that isvisible through the thread plate, and pull it through the plate. 3 Place the fabric under the presser foot, and drop thepresser foot.

Take out the embroiderymachine unit, locate the connection bushing on the back of your embroideryunit, and match it up with the connection bushing on your sewing machine. Theconnection bushing should be located next to a yellow sticker on yourembroidery unit, and somewhat resembles a serial port on a computer. Slide theembroidery unit onto the sewing machine with the sewing machine turned off. Connectto the bushing carefully as you slide the embroidery unit onto the sewingmachine. Use your embroidery unit manual if you need assistance. 2 Insert an embroidery card. Your embroidery unitshould contain an embroidery card labeled embroidery card 1. Use that or useanother Pfaff 7570 card that you own. Turn on the sewing machine. 3 Open the bobbin case area just below the threadplate, and lower the feed dogs by pushing the feed dog switch to the right.Press the card button located on the front face of your sewing machine. Adisplay with pop up; choose embroidery designs or monogram and a new screenwill pop up with your design choices. Choose the design you want, and press"OK." A checklist screen appears. Do everything on the checklist, andpress "OK." Use your embroidery unit manual if you need help. 4 Start embroidery by pressing the foot pedal. At thistime, your hoop should already be attached to the embroidery unit becauseyou've already gone through the checklist.

The needle hits the shuttle, cannot pick up thread. Pfaff 7570 ....help!


First check to make sure your needle is all the way up in the slot. Also check to make sure your bobbin case is all the way in and you are using the right bobbins. If all that is good then your machine probably needs to be retimed/ has a broken timing belt.

If the feed dogs still move up and down and back and forth then you just need a timing adjustment $30. If the feed dogs do not move at all then you need a new timing belt $100-200.

Hope this helps

On what number should I put 7570 tention when


Refer to the manual. If you do not have a manual, start at 4 and work your way through the numbers, bit by bit until you get good results.

The bobbin thread should pull the top thread slightly under and to the back.

Machine embroidery bobbin thread is heavier than the standard size machine embroidery top thread and this also helps to pull the top thread to the back.

My Pfaff sewing machine has started to loop the top thread underneath. Tried fixing the tension on the bobbin thread as they state in the manual, but the problem still persists. Any suggestions?


If the thread is looping underneath, you're top tension may be too loose or the thread may not be in the take-up lever. If it's looping on top, double check that the thread is in the bobbin tension or that the bobbin tension isn't too loose.

Bobbin thread getting all nested underneath fabric


I have found that either the bobbin is not threaded correctly or the top is not threaded correctly. Try re-threading your machine. I always sew on a test piece before sewing on my project.

Thread or bobbin tension


Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.

Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.

Good luck,

My Pfaff 2140 giving message main motor blocked.


I have gotten the main motor blocked message several times. When I get this, I always remove thread, both top and bottom. I change the needle too. 75% of the time my problem goes away. If the problem is not solved, I unscrew the casing in the front of the bobbin, and look for anything that might be obstructing the bobbin. While I've had lots of "blocked motor" messages, I've never had to get a tech to ook at it. Sometimes, if you leave it overnight too, the sewing machine fairy will change something and the problem will solve itself in the morning. Re-thread, re-bobbin, re-needle. to start.
