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.

SOURCE: I'm trying to do shirring?

My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?

SOURCE: thread or bobbin tension

Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.

Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.

Good luck,

-R

SOURCE: Pfaff 2040 Tiptronics bobbin case rotating out of position

Sounds like you need to put a drop of clear sewing machine oil in the raceway of the hook. Then sew on some scrap material to soak up the excess oil.

Pfaff quilting machine bobbin stuck


Is there is a wad of thread that is holding the bobbin captive? If so, you'll need to use small scissors and tweezers to snip away and pull out the threads. Patience!

If the bobbin is actually stuck in the bobbin case, it could be because it is the incorrect bobbin for the machine or the bobbin was over-filled with thread. You may just need to use force to remove the bobbin. It may damage the bobbin and, possibly, the bobbin case. They are both replaceable. Or you can pick up an additional bobbin case and bobbin and try the new ones in your machine.

Thread caught behind the bobbin case holder


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.

Have fun.

How do i fix the tension on my pfaff tiptronic 2020


It sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin tension. There is a small screw on the bobbin case to tighten/loosen the thread's tension coming out of the case. Refer to the user manual on the procedure to set it.

Bobbin trouble


Remove the needle plate for better access and try using a seam ripper to gently cut the threads and continue to remove with the tweezers.

The needle plate is the metal plate under the presser foot and is held into place with at least two screws.

The bobbin fits into the bobbin case.

The bobbin case fits into the bobbin shuttle.

Once you get the jam cleaned away, raise the needle to it's highest position and remove the bobbin case and/or replace the bobbin case.

Jamming can cause the machine to be out of time.

If you thead the machine with the presser foot up, have the bobbin inserted into the bobbin case correctly and the stiching is loose and loopy the machine may need to go into the shop for service.

How to adjust lower tension on pfaff hobby 370


On the bobbin case is a screw. Mark the case with a tiny dab of nail polish and the edge of the screw. This will tell you where you began.

Turn the screw: right to tighten and left to loosen.

This is an adjustment that is usually not needed unless you are changing the weight of the thread being used on the bobbin.

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.
