SOURCE: timing my pfaff 332 sewing machine

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.

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!

Tension not responding to the thread tension dial and the stitching doesn't meet in the middle and is not secure. I'm using a Pfaff Ambition Essential.

Install a brand new needle.

Remove all the top thread from the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning (this insures the thread is completely seated in the tension disk). Verify the thread path is correct.

Set the top tension to the midway point (the factory standard), but you may need to tweak it because every machine differs.

When trying to sew, error says "Presser foot is up" when it is not. Have tried to turn machine off/on etc. Nothing is helping

You might try a different presser foot. Perhaps the sensor is not reading it properly. Unable to research more without the make/model. Following may be helpful:

if the machine is still under warrenty, I would take it back. if you got a manual with the machine it should have a section in it for the deleting, if all else fails contact pfaff customer service and ask them what you can do, here is a link

"Hello, I have the ambition 1.5, absolutely love it. To switch the font to normal stitching you have to delete or save the sequence. To delete it just tap the little garbage photo and to save tap the heart. With that done you then go back to your stitching tab select a stitch and tap the little garbage bin to erase sequencing and go back to normal stitching."

If it's a digital machine try turning it off and on. Otherwise it might have a software problem and you will have to take it to be fixed.
