Consult a sewing machine sales and repair shop

Pfaff sewing machines are difficult to repair in most cases but you can try if you like. The arm that goes up and down when you push on the foot is adjusted to a spring that rises and falls. It is adjustable by a screw that holds the spring and the arm together. By loosening the screw the arm is movable up or down as necessary.

It sounds like a part is loose or has come off inside the lever mechanism. This model is now 5 years old and unless you can open up the head and examine the moving parts without voiding the machine warranty it is probably best to have a technician repair it.

Lowering feed dogs You can lower the feed dogs by moving the switch at the back of the free arm to the left. Move the switch to the right if you wish to raise the feed dogs. Note: The feed dogs will not raise immediately when the lever is switched. Turn the handwheel one full turn or start sewing to re-engage the feed dogs.

Hello Angelca. Sorry to hear you are having problems with your Pfaff 7570. I found an online place which may be able to assist you to find what you are looking for:
Not all machine serial numbers have production information built into them. Better off finding out when the model was made based on a model number not a serial number and search on the parts list for the factory number of the engine.
Best wishes.

Hello Roz

If there is some thread caught in the bobbing case area, the best solution is to remove the bobbin case and disassemble the bobbin case area. This is shown on page 16 of the manual. If you need a manual it is available free on line at this link

Please do give me a thumbs us if this is helpful, otherwise please send me a message with the challenge.

Happy stitching

No they are replaced.

Look for articles quoting hook, base and bobbin case. Youtube is excellent on things like this. There should be a clip either side to lock the piece in place.

You have a software glitch that can only be diagnosed and repaired by a technician.
Especially if this is an ongoing event.

How to get the old lever off to replace it with a new one.

PfaFF Sewing... | Answered on Mar 05, 2019

I would first try to use another foot control before anything else.
