During sewing, the upper part of the stitches on the fabric is fine, but on the bottom, the stitches goes on top of each other which forms a loop. How do I fix this?

You have a tension problem, Probably upper tension too tight but if not then the lower tension is too loose

I have a Pfaff creative sensation and is using the hoop 350x360 and wants to applique a tablemat. Size of the design is 348x247. Error message Colour block placed on both hoop sides not allowed

Probably because the design is too close to the hoop size. There needs to be some space around the edge to allow for the presser foot without hitting the hoop.

Display does not light up on PFAFF 1475 CD

These instructions apply to PFAFF 1475 CD. They may also work for other machines. If you have some advanced electronic repair skills and tools, check the following: For 220 Volts models - there is a fuse next to the power input, make sure it is good. There is no such a fuse for 120 Volts model. If the fuse is Okay, you have to get access to the main circuit board by removing the bottom cover. Check the primary on the transformer for 120 V AC (220 V AC respectively). Check the secondary side for 5 V AC (luminescent display), 9 V AC (turns to 5 V DC by rectifier, 4700 micro farads capacitor and a 5 V regulator STI L387A) and 28 V AC (turns to 35 V DC by rectifier and 2200 micro farads capacitor. Pay attention to two soldered round fuses in series with the secondary 9 V and 28 V - both should be good. On the big capacitors you should have 9 V DC and 35 V DC. Common symptoms for bad small 22 micro farads capacitors next to the some of the IC's - there are 5 of these: These capacitors are in parallel with 5 V DC. ## All of the LEDs light up but the display is blank ## All of the LEDs light up, the display is blank, and after a minute no LEDs at all ## No LEDs nor display. Replace ALL five 22 micro farads capacitors using a good desoldering pump or desoldering station!. Enjoy your resurrected PFAFF 1475 CD machine!!! I just did this procedure on my aunt's one (Made in West Germany around 1990).

My Pfaff quilt Expression 4.0 feed dogs will not go down. The switch will not lower them.

I assume the switch you are talking about is the one on the front bottom of the machine. this switch should not slide back and forth easily, if it does than the linkage has been disconnected or broken. To check this you need to open the bottom of the machine and see what happens when you move the switch. To open the bottom you will need a torx screwdriver. First remove 4 long screws that go through bottom and into back, than remove two shorter screws that go through bottom into front cover, next remove 3 short bolts that hold the bottom to frame. If you can't see anything broken or loose after opening the bottom, you might need to remove the covers.

Pfaff 1050S Sewing Machine. Hand wheel / gear problem?

My first thought was the the clutch on the handwheel was not tightened up. In the 'old days' machines has a knob in the centre that disconnected the drive. Or the motor drive belt is broken, stretched, or not on the pulleys. https://www.google.com/search?q=pfaff+1050s+replace+belt Pfaff are belt driven, but not much on yours. https://www.google.com/search?q=pfaff+1050s+replacement+belt ....
