What do you mean by "this series"?

Presuming you mean those currently sold at dealers, i.e. Ambition, Expression, Creative Performance, Creative Sensation etc. models.... stitch plates no, they are completely different configuration as bobbins are top loading. Bobbins no, they are different too. Feet - a straight stitch foot is interchangeable. The opening on the machines (thinking 9mm now) are curved rather than straight so you'll see some feet have the curved opening to match the needle plate. You're supposed to use the current version of a foot with those so the curve matches curve. I'm finding, unless I've missed some, not all those with a 9mm opening seem to have a curved current version, perhaps I just haven't looked hard enough. When I matched a couple of mine, old to new version, certainly you can see the difference but I started thinking a 9mm stitch still just moves left/right, forward back but not into the curve. I am testing, carefully, handwalking the needle through a few stitches with old foot to see what would happen. Even though the opening is curved it still stitches in the traditional configuration to form the stitch from what I can see. That is just what I'm personally doing, it's not what I would advise a customer to just go ahead and do as without making sure it's ok I wouldn't want them to break a needle, foot, or cause any other damage.

The 75xx series was all 9mm IIRC. I have personally not had any issues using feet from my Creative Performance on my 7510, but it is always good to do the manual check with the hand wheel.

If you are asking if parts from within that series are compatible, I've been told they are. So, parts from my 7510 would work on the 7570 and vice versa. I inquired at a local dealer because I am considering selling my 1473CD and getting another 75xx machine.

If you mean does all that stuff for your Pfaff 7570 work with and is just the same for my even older Pfaff 1475CD or a Pfaff 7550 then yes. Just since the feet clip on all the same, as the machine ankle that they clip to is the same, and the little bar they clip to on that, is the same and they have the same 9mm stitch width and just the same IDF/IDT pull down foot in the back and such. So they are the same. I should know , as bought such a ton of it, back then, for my Pfaff 1475CD machine even

There are not much choices for stitch plates at all though. Just the normal one with a zig zag slot in it that comes with a machine, and then the only other one just has a single needle hole for straight stitch. I'm not sure if the Pfaff 1475, Pfaff 7550, Pfaff 7570 one is all the same for that or not though. As I never felt I needed one for anything. Truth is even my Pfaff 1475, stitches a plain old straight stitch with it's normal zig zag plate, just as good or better than anyone's Singer Featherweight 221, a #1 elna, a Singer 201, 401 or just any of those machines, (which I got most of those too) so I don't buy into the feeling, that you always "need" a needle plate with just a single tiny hole for straight stitching on anything either.

I even bought my daughter a used Pfaff 6120 machine once, that only had 7mm needle swing, but got that partially just so she could borrow all that stuff from me, just on occasion if she needed it, as I did not really feel like buying all over again for her.

I actually can even use the metal Pfaff Bobbins from my old 1950's Pfaff 130 or 30 in a Pfaff 1475, 7550 or 7570 too just fine, but just since they don't have the little cut out for the low thread sensor, it would not read that, so most times I use clear plastic ones instead. I never bothered to get any metal ones that the sensor could read with instead. Bobbin case wise though, I would be careful. Just since Pfaff 1475, 7550 and 7570 has cut out in that for 9mm and not 7mm stitching, if you used "the wrong Pfaff bobbin case" that was only 7mm wide in it's cut out, and tried to stitch a stitch with a width of 9mm instead, then your needle would be slamming into the bobbin case instead.

Thanks everyone and sorry for the confusion... I am referring to all the models in the 75XX series...

I have the 7530 which I love... but if repair is to costly I will replace Pfaffie with a 7550, 7560 (I didn't even know there was a 7560), 7570 and was thinking I could use the 7530 for parts. Or maybe another 7530

You could. You can actually use the main board in a Pfaff 7550 in a Pfaff 1475CD instead. I did have Pfaff do that for me once, long ago when I just wanted even more P memory on my Pfaff 1475 machine, and they did not happen to have a Pfaff 1475 board laying around just then. And that is back then wehn they still were making them even. Plus, I think the feed dog stepping motors are all the same too, and they don't even make those anymore either. So even if your Pfaff 7530 did not work anymore, a whole bunch of people probably would still want it, and it still has value, just for all the feet, the stepping motors and the boards in it, and even then if something was wrong with a board, they would just fix that and put it in some other machine later even, just since those are not made new anymore either.
