SOURCE: sewing machine has bobbin thread would around winding shaft

If the bobbin is on correctly try crossing the thread before going through the tensioner which should solve this problem and also a more evenly wound bobbin.

SOURCE: the bobbin

You need to turn the wheel inside the handwheel to wind a bobbin. You will feel it "release". (I think you turn it towards you - can't remember, sorry!) Don't forget to turn it back when you are done.

SOURCE: Automatic bobbin winder does not stop when bobbin is full

Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.

It is not that the thread is not being picked, it is just that the tension of both the top and bottom threads is not equal. That is why the thread at the bottom gets collected because the lower thread is loose compared to the top one. Loosen the top thread by unscrewing the thread tightner a little at a time. The problem will be sorted out when tension get equal or near equal.

Check the manual for your machine to make sure you are feeding the thread through the correct guides and connecting with the bobbin as indicated.

How to thread bobbin 451 Pfaff


Having difficulty even locating a photo of the 451. Assuming this is an older model, perhaps this manual will help. It says its also for the 551, so perhaps the model is close enough that it will help you with your machine:

Pfaff 551 Manual pages 1 viewing

If you are unable to figure out the bobbin winder, you may be able to use a standalone bobbin winder (one brand is called Sidewinder) from the fabric store. They run ~$25-30. Just be sure to bring a bobbin with you to check the fit.

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.

My Janome 3018 will not wind a nice tight bobbin. They are loose and spongy. This machine is brand new. I have double checked that it is threaded properly and the thread is in the correct place and


You are not exactly threading the machine when you wind the bobbin. So follow the directions for winding the bobbin, make sure the thread fits under the little revolving wheel, and make sure that the stitch part of the machine is disengaged.

Pfaff 2046 tension problems, needle breaks


Needle breaks
1.the needle is damaged
2.the needle is not correctly inserted
3.wrong size needle for the fabric
4.the wrong foot is attached
5.the needle clamp screw is loose
6. Top tension is too tight--loosen off one letter or number till the stitch
looks normal
7.make sure that every thread guide is used when winding the
bobbin,, so that the bobbin will wind tightly, if this doesn't help,,
then it's possible that the bobbin winder needs adjustment,, it needs
to be taken to a sewing machine shop

My pfaff 2170 says "main motor blocked" how can I fix this?


It happened to me... Check the bobbin and thread in the shaft ... Pull out the bobbin and remove all thread from the shaft. Pull out any thread remains with the tweezers. Check the feeder dogs and the needle (see Owner's Manual 2:7). Re-insert the bobbin (see Owner's Manual 2:12).Make sure that you use a good quality thread and set everything up correctly. Good luck!

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?
