Question about Sewing Machines
I just bought a new sewing machine yesterday, and took it out of the box to discover it is not working properly. I started at the beginning of the manual and it made uncomplicated stitches beautifully, but when I went to try a letter, it made the first few stitches and froze. Now the needle will not move, nor does the wheel on the right budge. I have checked the thread and the bobbin and both are correct and tension is fine (pull smoothly through the shuttle.

SOURCE: shuttle alignment and assembly
The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks
Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

SOURCE: unable to adjust tension,
Sounds like the bobbin thread is not inside the tension on the bobbin case. This normally happens when the bobbin is upside down. Insert the bobbin and pull on the thread.The bobbin should turn counter clockwise.

SOURCE: thread tension
I have had this problem when the bobbin was wound wrong and also when the machine was improperly threaded. Check your manual to make sure you hit all the threading points, but I think the most common one i've missed that caused this was the metal loop you thread immediately before threading the needle.

This is caused by inadequate tension on the top thread make sure there are no broken threads between the discs of your upper tension and it should be set on app #4
