Timing my pfaff 332 sewing machine

When bobbin case is out, I see that the inner part of where it normally snaps in, spins around, and blocks the spot where the needle is to come
cleanly down and back up with the thread from the bobbin. Is this a timing problem? Can I fix this myself? I have a Pfaff 332 sewing machine.
Thank you for any help you can give me. Anna

There are two parts to the sew hook on that machine. The outer part has the hook point that grabs the thread off the needle. Then there is an inner part which has a post in the center of it that the bobbin case fits on to. The inner part should be held in place with an arm that has a bump on it. It keeps the inner part from spinning around. Sometimes this arm slips loose and a notch in the inner part of the hook assembly slips out from under the knob on the arm. If this is what is happening, you need to loosen the screw holding the arm in place and reposition the notch of the inner part of the hook back under the bump on the arm. There needs to be clearance between the notch and the bump for the thread to pass between the two. And the bump should be in line with the needle when it is in its lowest position.
If this doesn't solve the problem you need to take the machine in for repair.

My bobbin winds unevenly, there is always more thread at the bottom of it than there is at the top. Neither switching to the original pfaff bobbin nor either spool position works.


I always use my finger to guide the thread as the bobbin is winding,the bobbin shouldn't be moving around in the metalcase probably needs tightened.

Pfaff 1221: was sewing fine; now top thread doesn't catch bobbin thread


try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
and if that doesn't help, the problem could be a timing issue and would require a sewing machine shop

I have pfaff 2046 and the bobbin case will not face upwards. it is tilted to right side a little


Have you got your bobbin case and the area around it cleaned? This sort of thing often happens because there is a bit of lint stuck in the bobbin mechanism. Also, oil it! All sewing machines need a bit of a lube, even the new computer driven ones.

I have a Pfaff 418 and suddenly the bottom thread keeps snapping after about 5cm. I've altered the tesion & the timing and it's still happening. Any ideas??


try changing the needle
try rethreading the machine
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
if these suggestions don't help, then the machine needs to be checked
to see what wrong with it

Anna had this problem with her Pfaff 332 sewing machine, I do too


I believe that the bobbin case holder has become unlatched, for lack of better terminology. I have one of these machines, and my first experience with one was exactly as you are describing. A friends grandmother brought it to me because it kept breaking needles and wouldn't complete a stitch.Put the bed table in the lowered position, leaving the free arm exposed. Remove your needle, presser foot, and bobbin case, leaving the bobbin door open. Next remove the two screws that hold in the feed plate, and remove the feed plate. Looking down into the bobbin area, manually turn the bobbin case holder. There is a small slot in the top of the bobbin case holder, look for it as you turn. A small latch protruding from the bed plate is supposed to be clipped into that slot, and if the latch is still there, you likely will not be able to rotate the holder into place: This is good news, it means nothing is broken. Loosen the three screws (two silver on the top of the bed plate and one black in the area where the feed plate goes) which hold the bed plate in place, but do not remove them. You should be able to lift the bed enough to get the holder into place, and then set the bed back down and tighten the screws. Reassemble everything, throw in a new needle and see how it goes!

Good morning,

A question to help determine what's happening with your machine(s).

Open the bobbin case so you can see the bobbin area. Begin by trying to turn the handwheel towards you and watch as the needle attempts to go up/down. If you cannot turn the handwheel towards you, turn it slightly backwards then forwards. Does the needle hit the bobbin case as it comes down?

If yes, your machine is out of time and will require a professional technician to repair.

If the above is not the case, there may be thread jammed behind the bobbin case or wrapped around the inner parts of the take-up lever.

Either case - a Pfaff authorized technician would be your best bet for a proper repair.

Best of luck with your machines - it's just awful to not have the at the ready for all our projects!

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette
