Replacing Light bulb in Pfaff 1471 cd

The light bulb in my machine has burned out. tried to unscrew/pull it out not knowing if it was push in or screw type. The bulb itself came out with two fine wires sticking out and left the metal base in the socket. Being up inside the machine, it is hard to get ahold of and see to know if it needs to be pulled or unscrewed. How on earth do I get the metal base out to replace the bulb without damaging the socket?

    I have the side cover off but can not unscrew the bulb. Is the bulb a screw in type. I don't want to break it off while it is in the machine. I can see a small spring attached to the black part that holds the lower part of the bulb. Do I do something with it?

Unplug the machine and check to make sure that the contacts for the batteries are clean and that the batteries are installed with the correct positive and negative orientation. Plug the machine back on and test.

On these machines you cannot open the left side to remove the bulb. Your machine accessory kit should have come with a rubber tool that is ribbed with a cup-shaped opening on either end. This is a tool for removing the bulb. Tilt the machine with the base facing up so you can see where the bulb is and use this tool to twist the bulb gently. It sould come out with no problem! Hope this helps!

What light bulb fits 4300 Morse sewing machine


The Morse 4300 and 4400 use the same small 15W screw in light bulb as many other sewing machines. This is one vendor: https://a1sewingmachine.com/LB716sm~Bulb%2C+15+Watt+Small+screw+in+base.htm . Another source is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/light-bulb-white-7scw.aspx .

I hope this helps. However, if you have a bulb in the sewing machine, take it out and confirm that it is the screw in type. (If there is no bulb, look at the socket for some turns for threading in a bulb.) If the bulb or socket doesn't have threads, then look for a 15W push and twist bulb at sewing machine parts suppliers.

How to remove a light bulb cap from overlocker sewing machine


There are two ways to do this Agatha, and I have done it both ways.

TURN THE MACHINE OFF AND REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE WALL SOCKET!!!

Pull the glass globe of the light from the base. Use a dinner knife to push into the bulb base until it grips, release a little and turn anticlockwise.

OR

Pull the glass globe of the light from the base. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the edge of the base between the jars. Whilst maintaining grip, twist the pliers anticlockwise. This will roll the thin base around the pliers, loosen the base in the fitting and make it very easy to unscrew.

Put a little Vaseline or oil on the new bulb threads and don't overtighten it.

Let me know how you get on Agatha by way of COMMENT below my post.

What light bulb does the morse zig zag 4300 sewing machine take?


The Morse 4300 typically uses a standard 15 watt screw in style sewing bulb. Just like the one shown in the enclosed link. However, due to the age of this machine, it is possible that the light fixture has been changed at some point. If you have a burned out bulb, and it has a screw style base, this one will be right. There is also a push in style used on many aftermarket fixtures. Both styles of bulb are fairly universal though. So it will be one or the other.

Can the light bulb on the Pfaff 7570 be changed without the bulb changer tool?


Yes. First turn off the machine. You need to get out the cover (cap) with the stitches number in it. Move the bobbin winder to the position to full a bobbin. Unscrew the screw near the bobbin winder. Next unscrew the screw near the thread reel holder. Pull up the handle to carry the machine and now put up this cover. Unscrew the biggest screw at the left hand, just unscrew a little. I'ts a little more down. Then pull up the cap at the left hand (the cap that have the thread trimmer). Now change the bulb and put all the caps to the right position. I hope that you understand me, my first language is spanish.

Light bulb not working


You need to change the bulb.
Most light bulbs in almost all sewing machines are located inside the face plate on the left hand side of the machine.
The faceplate is usually hinged at the back and it opens a bit like a door. It should open fairly easily and close with a click.
Open the faceplate and unscrew the bulb, it should be in plain view.
Look to see if it a screw or bayonet type.
Replace it the same way you would an ordinary bulb.
You can get sewing machine bulbs on ebay but you'll need to know which type of fitting it has before you buy.
Hope this helps!

I have an Elna Super sewing machine that was my mothers. I do not have the manual and need to know how to change the light bulb. Thanks.


I have an Elna TSP (about 35 years old) that I believe is about the same as yours. There is a small hold on the top of the sewing machine (not an oiling hold) near the front. Use the small screw driver that came with the machine and push it down into the hole. The light bulb will be pushed down in back of the needle. The bulb has a bayonet type socket and you have to push up and twist the bulb to remove it. This is not striaght forward and you really need the owners manual to figure it out. If you do not have the original screwdriver, one from an eyeglass repair kit might work. I found your question because I am trying to locate a replacement bulb for my Elna.
