Question about Pfaff Creative 4.0 Sewing Machnie
The needle arm won't go up and down, the wheel won't turn and there may be thread wound around the shaft behind the bobbin case holder. How do I remove the bobbin case holder out of the machine?
Take off the presser foot
take off the needle plate
take off the bobbin plate
take out the needle,
clip bobbin free,
Examine the bobbin carrier on how it fits into place. (important)
Lift out the bobbin carrier.
Each machine is a little different. You may want to take pictures as you do each step for later reference. Use something like an old egg carton or a muffin tin to keep your parts from rolling around or getting knocked off an lost.

Did the machine get dropped, or otherwise roughly handled? Or have a rough, bumpy ride back home, etc? That could explain why it's not working correctly.

Also note that using a red band Singer needle will cause this exact symptom. The Singer needle is about 1.5 mm too long for use in any other machine. Ensure that you're using a standard needle. (Schmetz and Klasse are good examples.)
Your machine may also be out of time, which would require professional repair.

Rule of thumb.. Loops on the bottom, problem on the top. Loops on the top, problems on the bottom.
Set your upper tension at 4, and rethread the machine from the top. Just before you thread the needle, but the presser foot down. If the thread pulls right thru easily, then the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. Because, if you can't pull the thread thru with the presser foot down, you have it threaded right.

The timing has been knocked off when it jammed. The only way to
correct this is to take it to a shop and have it retimed. This is common on these machines.

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.
