How long since it has been serviced? Sounds to me like it may need some cleaning and oiling.

Contact them direct. They should send a technician. It is still under warranty and you fixing it will void that warranty.

Page 24 doesn't show how it is fitted, so must be from the underside or a press fit.

On that machine you need to set the “width” knob to 5 or 6, as well as select an appropriate stitch to achieve a zig zag type stitch.

You should not place the hoop into the embroidery unit of the Creative 7560 until you see a prompt "Cover and insert frame 120" (or 80 if using the small hoop) on the LCD display. See . This allows the sewing machine to freely test/calibrate the embroidery unit. Other Pfaff machines, for example the Pfaff Creative 3.0, prompt you to remove the hoop and clear the embroidery unit area for it to do this step. (For this information see page 7:3 (75 of the PDF) of the Creative 3.0 manual: .)

I hope this helps.

Do you have the hoop adapter connected to the embroidery unit when you use the 80x80 hoop? This is an accessory that was in the original accessory kit. The small 80 x 80 hoop will not be recognized without it. See page 5:40 (page 138 of the PDF) of the manual for information on the hoop adapter. If the hoop adapter is connected, you should see a prompt to identify the current hoop on the sewing machine screen. The manual is available from Pfaff here: .

If you do have the adapter in place, please add a comment about any messages on the screen.

I hope this helps.

Were the base plate pugs into the power leads, you should read about 6-18 is ohms. Open and short is a bad transformer.

Also there are fuses, 2-3 right next to the transformer, small blueish and round are the shapes. They go bad often.
