Acetone polish remover on a qtip clean the shaft real good up inside where the lever moves it up and down. Once all the old grease and dirt is removed it should work like a charm..

Foot wil not stay on Pfaff no problem befor now rause lever and foot falls off


Check the latch component on the presser foot bar and on the presser foot. Perhaps something has become loose, fallen off, or become damaged. Have you tried a different presser foot and, if so, does it work? If more than one presser foot will not attach, then the problem is on the presser foot bar.

Error message on Pfaff 7570 is "bring presser foot lifter to sewing position?" Is this a fatal error or is this a procedure that has to be done before the machine will operate?


Assuming that the presser foot lifter is working, this shouldn't be a fatal error. The presser foot has to be down to sew. The lifter needs to be in the down position to put the foot down.

The manual for the Pfaff Creative 7570 is available on the product page: http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Machines/creative-7570 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/Creative_7570-manual-EN.pdf?ext=.pdf . See page 32 (page 36 of the PDF) of the manual to see a picture of the presser foot lifter.

I hope this helps.

Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

Pfaff 7550 presser foot will not go all the way down after using darning foot and returning to regular sewing.


By chance, do you still have the darning foot on the machine? If so, it is shorter than a regular foot which allows space to manually maneuver the fabric.

Also check that the presser foot pressure is activated and the feed dogs are in the up position.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

Presser foot level on pfaff 1540 will not go down?


Hi Donna. The lube in your pressed bar had gone gummy. There is a spring inside the bar and it gets stuck. You will need to have a pfaff service tech clean and relube it. Could be included in a standard machine service.

The presser foot lever keeps falling down when set in the up position on my Pfaff Performance 2056. How do I fix it?


The presser foot return spring needs to be replaced, it's a inexpensive repair.
This sounds like a job for a repair shop.

PFAFF sewing machine: How do I attach the gathering foot on the PFAFF 1473?


usually a gathering foot or ruffler fits on like one would fit an old style foot. Unscrew the thumb screw that holds the snap on foot holder.... and place your foot making sure the needle holder thumb screw holds the lever on the other side. And tighten the thumb screw to hold on the foot.

Good luck.

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
