    thanks.
    i ended up talking to a local repair person over the phone, and figured out that the black plastic bobbin case had chipped slightly at the spring, causing it to wobble. so i ordered a new one, and hopefully this will solve the problem.

Hi, I have a PFAFF Hobby 420 sewing machine. Its motor is not working and there is no service centre of PFAFF in our city. Could you please guide me opening the motor??


Maybe it just needs new carbon brushes. My Bernina 830 Record resembles the Pfaff very closely. I had issues with the motor stuttering. Changed the carbon brushes and it runs like a top!

I can't get the thread and bobbin to make a loop to start my sewing. karbell01@aol.com


it sound like the timming is off, if your machine won't make a loop at all
it has to be serviced
now if it makes big loops it's the tension

If you have cleaned & lubricated the machine as indicated in your manual and the problem continues, the machine needs to go into the shop for professional service.

See if you can release the bobbin from the case.

Pfaff tiptroni6122, the thread loops up on the bottom of material


Sounds like the hook timing is off. You don't need a new hook but you may need a new position finger. If you are unfamiliar with working on sewing machines then it needs to go to the shop. This is a great machine and is worth keeping up. Pfaff doesn't make the all metal hook anymore which is a shame.

good luck!

Bottom (bobbin thread) makes loops


I don't have the same brand as yours, but on my machine there is a little screw on the bobbin case that you tighten to increase the bobbin tension. If you've got one, turn it 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.
