20 Most Recent PfaFF Quilt & Craft Pro 7530 Questions & Answers

Hm, this decision is probably too personal for someone else to answer. For what it's worth, there's a 7530 on eBay--bid starting @$650.

You'll need to decide if $500 to fix your machine is worthwhile to YOU. How much faith do you have in the repair person? Unfortunately, sometimes, even when machines are repaired, they can still have other parts fail. However, there are repaired machines that will run for another 15 years without any major problems. I'm just assuming (based on the cost), the problem with your machine involves a computer component which is a common issue with computerized machines. Like all computers, there are parts that will fail over time...that's just their nature. For the most part, computers will fail within 5-10 years. However, if they are installing a brand new computer component, it could be like a brand new machine.

On the other hand, you know your machine and you know what is wrong with it. Purchasing another used machine leaves you in the dark as far as whether the machine works properly, how it's been treated and serviced, if shipping is involved, will it be packed right and not arrive damaged, etc. Sometimes, just the comfort of knowing that makes your machine worth fixing.

If you contemplate replacing your machine, just sit down and make a list of all the options on your machine that you cannot live without. Then set out in search of machines that fill your list of must-haves. The price may help you make your decision.. Finding a new replacement machine could cost a couple thousand dollars.

Sounds like the lever has become disconnected from the presser foot bar.

It's probably seizing up. You should take it in to be serviced.

Is the correct foot on the machine?
Is the presser foot correctly mounted?
Is the needle plate correctly mounted?

There is a length switch that you must turn carefully. Just monitor the distance of movement on an old rag and make some marks on the switch or dial as you go.

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,

Ok.. first understand that free motion is just that.... there will not be a perfect stitch length... You are the regulator of that as you move the hoop. You'll need to practice. There are some good videos on youtube on this.
