It would be a two minute job for the Pfaff repair chap to do this....ring and check availability and ask for a quote, in our shop I would not charge to do this as you would be coming back for other goodies anyway, so it is just good business not to squeeze every last cent when word spreads of how reasonable and accommodation we were..
Phone and ask, save the stress.

Can I use a twin needle on a Pfaff 2056

Since your machine can do decorative stitches, I would think it can take a twin needle. Just BE SURE you have installed the needle plate with the wide hole for the needle and do NOT set a wider stitch than the twin needle can accommodate on it's widest setting without checking by turning the handwheel--the twin needle will overreach and either hit the presser foot or needle plate and sent needle shards flying!!! The manual should have instructions.

How to install a needle threader on pfaff 2034 expression sewing machine

It would probably be quicker and easier to continue using the cheap and very efficient hand held needle threader most of the rest of the world uses when it can no longer see very well. To be honest I have been around them all my life and have never seen a sewing machine with a needle threader, I didn't know there was such a thing...

Pfaff 91 sewing machine..The bobbin casing strikes the needle threader and prevents the casing from making a complete cycle. this happens even without a needle intalled

The likely answer is that the needle threader is out of its place. They are pretty delicate and subject to bending. Also, I wouldn't think the needle threader should extend to or below the needle plate--this would be counter-productive as only the needle should extend that far because it should be the only machine part that would be penetrating the fabric.

HOW TO ADJUST my needle threader on my Pfaff Creative Visions 5.5 sewing machine

If the tiny hook on the needle threader misses the eye of the needle, it needs a careful adjustment to align it. I do mine by using a magnifying lamp to aid viewing the mechanism, then holding the needle threader down level with the eye, gently manipulate the hook until it is able to move into the eye., usually a tiny amount either side. If it needs adjustment vertically, then it needs the small screw carefully undoing a little, until the threader can be moved slightly up, or down.

I am not sure how to replace my broken self threader hook, to put in a new hook for my 2040 model, Pfaff sewing machine?

If your talking about the needle threader, it just simply slides on to the stainless steel shaft and snaps on. You might have to adjust it a little if it doesn't line up with the eye of the needle. To do that you need to remove the side cover of the needle bar area, and loosen the 1.5MM allen screw that sets the stop for the threader stop. It is located near the top of the needle threader bar.

How do you thread a pfaff 7570

If only we could put video links in here! But here goes:

Raise the presser foot;
Turn the hand wheel until the take-up lever (the hook bit that goes up and down, above the needle ) has reached its highest position;
Remove the small spool holder from the horizontal thread holder that is under the lid. Put thread reel onto spool, replace spool holder;
Pull thread behind first thread guide - it is the cream flat plastic bit towards the back - about 1" x 3/4" (i.e. the thread takes the first exit at the back);
Bring it down the left-hand long slot on the front of the machine, back up the right-hand slot, over the hook of the take-up lever, back down the right-hand slot and pass it from the side between the thread guide (silver metal bit just above the needle - looks a bit like curled metal). I found this last guide the most difficult to figure out - tried to get the thread into the curled bit - but you don't do that - it just slips in behind;
Thread goes through the eye of the needle. You can use the needle threader or not. Instructions for needle threader:

Lower sewing foot (makes more room and clamps the thread in the upper tension discs so it is less likely to keep spooling off while you are trying to thread);
Turn handwheel until the needle is in highest position;
Pull the needle threader straight down and then twist it to the front so the tiny hook on the threader goes through the eye of the needle;
Take thread under the larger metal hook on the left, put your thumb on it to stop it coming off, thread goes back towards the needle and under the small hook that is poking through the needle from the back;
Twist the needle threader towards the rear, releasing the thread carefully and allow the threader to move upwards. There should be a loop of thread left in the eye of the needle and you can now pull it all through to the back.

That sounds really complicated but I find the Pfaff needle threader works really well, unlike that of some other machines. I also have a Husqvarna Designer 1 whose needle threader works great, but the one on my friend's Designer SE is useless. Go figure!
