My bobbin is winding really slow on my Pfaff Quilt Expressions 4.2. It used to wind fast and don't know what happened.

Hard to say. Does it wind slow with both methods? I would double check that the thread path is correct--incorrect thread path could cause it move slower https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwj8nPz_2qXYAhXSk-AKHTYIDQsQFggmMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pfaff.com%2FSiteMedia%2FPFAFF%2FProducts%2FMachines%2Fexpression-line%2FManual%2Fexpression-3-2-4-2-manual-EN.pdf&usg=AOvVaw00vbTPKaCOh98HQ2-QnKQP You may find a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder for $30) avlb at JoAnn's or on Amazon. Nice little accessory that lets you wind multiple bobbins without unthreading the machine and also saves wear and tear on your machine.

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).

Do you have a diagram of the buttons to click on to get the needle position to change in the Pfaff 1473?

The needle position of the Pfaff Creative 1473 can only be changed for straight stitches. Use the stitch width + button (the top of the pair of buttons in the middle of the row below the LCD display) to move the needle from left to right. The range of positions depends on your stitch choice. There are 19 positions available for stitch programs 01, 03, and 04. There are 17 positions available for program 05 (triple straight stitch). The stitch programs are indicated on page 2 (page 6 of the PDF) of the manual. The use of the stitch width buttons is on page 30 (page 34 of the PDF). See pages 50-53 for additional information. Different symbols will appear in the display to show the needle position (to the left, center or to the right). The manual is available from Pfaff on the product page: https://www.pfaff.com/en-us/machines/creative-1473 . The current link to the manual is https://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Creative_1473-manual-EN.pdf . I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I have not been able to download a Repair Manual for the Pfaff Hobbylock 4760 without first installing a program called ClearBar. what am I doing wrong?

The site you were on is a scam site and is trying to get you to download a malicious program in exchange for a manual that doesn't exist. It looks like a Browser Add-On, also known as a PUP, a Potentially Unwanted Program. https://www.google.com/search?q=ClearBar There is no Service Manual for your Hobbylock. https://www.google.com/search?q=Pfaff+Hobbylock+4760+service+manual ..

My pressure foot won’t go down all the way on the Pfaff Hobbymatic 935?

Take it apart and spray the inside with an electrical switch contact cleaner. The screws are on the underside and may be hidden under the rubber feet..

Dear Fixya, My Pfaff 1472 sewing machine does not switch on immediately when you switch it on with the main switch. After a while it will turn on by itself.

Does yours have batteries like this one. It does, Page 26 of the manual. The machine is computer operated so there has to be a short warm up period. It shouldn't be turn on and off on its own though. I would check the switch operation with a test meter and check all the connections on the motherboard. https://frommycarolinahome.com/2015/06/19/pfixing-the-pfaff/ Service manuals are hard to come by. This is the only Pfaff I can find. https://www.eserviceinfo.com/preview_html.php?fileid=68513&previewid=36050 https://www.google.com/search?q=pfaff+1472+service+manual .. ..

I have a Pfaff 2140. Is the card reader a pcmcia type II?

The manual only refers to it as a 'Card 300'. I can find nothing online as to what the card actually is. It does say in the manual it has to be formatted inside the machine. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/122000/Pfaff-Creative-2170.html?page=107#manual https://www.google.com/search?q=pcmcia+type+II https://www.google.com/search?q=pfaff+2140+card+types ..
