How to update your machine

  1. Download and unzip the update software. Only the update file (labled OP314049A.lof or OP314049B.lof depending on the version) should be directly loaded onto your USB embroidery stick. Save the file at the root level, do not place the file in any folder, and do not upload any folder onto the USB stick. 
  2. Make sure you don’t have any older version of a .lof file on your stick.
  3. Switch off your PFAFF® creative™ 1.5 sewing and embroidery machine. Connect the USB embroidery stick loaded with the new software version to the USB port on your machine.
  4. While pressing and holding the needle up/down button and the reverse button, turn on your machine. Hold the buttons until the progress bar is shown on the display.
  5. The new software will install automatically.
  6. When the update is completed the machine will restart automatically. Check the software version number in the settings menu.
