I have a pfaff creative 4 and it won't zig zag, just keeps saying that the machine is set for straight stitch. How do I change this? changing the stitch width setting doesn't make any difference

Look under the tools menu. There should be a setting for straight stitch needle plate or something like that. good luck! Wayne

Bobbin not in position, won't let me get cotton from bottom - snags on part

Look for bent bits! Also try a new bobbin/ if it's the type that locks into position, there maybe an issue with the lock on that bobbin. Once you load the bobbin, slowly turn the flywheel intil you feel the thread snag and see where the boo in is facing-will give you a better chance of solving issue. Also, if there is a thread tensioner, turn it way down....

Message remove thread jam under the stitch plate keeps appearing! It's clean!

After cleaning out the bobbin area, re-threading the top thread, turning my Pfaff 4.2 off and on it still said " remove thread jam under the the stitch plate". I pushed the "ok" button and it started working again. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thread caught behind the bobbin case holder

Take off the presser foottake off the needle platetake off the bobbin platetake out the needle, clip bobbin free, Examine the bobbin carrier on how it fits into place. (important) Lift out the bobbin carrier. Each machine is a little different. You may want to take pictures as you do each step for later reference. Use something like an old egg carton or a muffin tin to keep your parts from rolling around or getting knocked off an lost. Have fun.

Removing top cover on pfaff creative 4.0 embroidery machine

May be, you have not the right tools to open your pfaff chassis. In your case I prefer to get support from pfaff: http://www.pfaff.com/de/692.htmlIt's a risk to open the chassis, you can't see, where it is fixed. If you try to open, the risk is high your pfaff will take damage.

How do you access the top of a Pfaff 1020 sewing machine?

To access the top of a Pfaff 1020 sewing machine, you will need to remove the top cover by unscrewing the screws located on the back of the machine. Once the screws are removed, the top cover can be lifted off to access the internal components.

Display shows battery on my pfaff anniversary edition

For a 7550, this has been noted, AND also, if batteries show leak or any corrosion, clean only with mild soap, dish, do not use acetone, alcohol, any aggressive such as these can damage plated contacts.

How do I change the battery in my PFAFF 7550 creative sewing machine?

Switch on the sewing mahine to avoid deleting the memories during the battery change. Tilt the machine over backwards. A battery compartment is installed i the base. Using a screwdriver (as a lever, not to unscrew anything), pry up/off the cover. Take out the batteries. Insert new batteries with the "+" side facing upward. Replace the cover -- hinges should engage in the lower recess; the cover should snap in place. Use heavy duty batteries, such as Duracell. Battery size is AA

Pfaff 7550 creative only sewing in zig zag stitch.

It sounds like your Pfaff 7550 Creative may be experiencing a hardware-related issue. To diagnose the problem, try resetting the machine by unplugging the power cord and waiting 10 minutes before plugging it back in. If the problem persists, then it is likely that the machine's control circuit board may have become damaged and will need to be replaced. Additionally, you should also check that the machine is receiving power by testing the power cord, power switch, and the foot pedal. If all of these components are working correctly, then the control circuit board will need to be replaced. If you need further assistance, you can consult a professional Pfaff technician for diagnosis and repair.
