Tension on my Pfaff Grandquilter


check carefully that the top thread is actually gong between the tension plates and not behind them and jamming on the retainer bolt
before threading the needle place the thread up to the point of threading the needle and pull on the thread , proper tension is when there is a slight resistance to pulling the thread
If it takes excessive force to pull the thread then it is caught around something so follow the thread all the way back to the spool to see where the problem is

How do I adjust the timing on a pfaff industrial 545?it will not pick up the bobbin thread at all.


This happened to me. Shucks, I had the wrong needle in; it was too short to reach the bobbin thread and pick it up. Installed correct needle (repair man did) and viola. . .

I took my machine to be 'cleaned', and when I get it back the pressure foot has no pressure. I'm in Jacksonville FL and cannot find anyone that repairs Pfaff sewing machines (1473 CD). I need some help!


Independent repair shops will work on any model, it's the parts they have no control of. The good thing is that we have ebay, where most hard to find parts always pop up. All or 95% of sewing machine stores here in Bay Area Ca. sell and service PFAFF, even vintage metal mechanical models.

- resetting the timing


I have been an upholsterer for over 30 years, I own a Pfaff 145 and Pfaff 545. Both are basically the same. Whenever my timing is off, where the threaded needle won't connect with the bobbin thread, I have always had success in re-setting the timing by taking apart the entire bobbin case. Remove the walking foot and the plate it walks on. Remove the bobbin and dismantle everything underneath it. Keep each piece and its screws together, and remember the order in which you removed it (last goes in first, etc.)Remove any obstructions, thread, fluff, etc. Surprisingly, when you put it all back together, your timing will be back to normal. This has always worked for me, and I hope it'll work fo you.

Loose end cap cover.


Hi,

This actually applies to most of the newer Pfaff machine models:
  1. If the cover will come completely off, look at the inside of it to make sure the bracket that holds it in place is not broken. If it's not broken...
  2. Grab a flashlight
  3. Remove the stitch lid - there are little silver clips at the base of the lid on either side - push the lid either to the left or right against these clips and you'll be able to pop it right off. You will reverse procedure to put it back on. Removing the lid isn't absolutely necessary but does make it easier to see/access screw.
  4. Raise the handle of the machine
  5. Aim your flashlight into the machine behind the left side of the handle... you should be able to see down inside the machine to the set-screw that holds the side cover in place
  6. Check to see what kind of screwdriver you need - either a Phillips head or a Torx Driver. Most of the newer Pfaff models require a Torx Driver (this is a star-shaped screw-driver available at most hardware stores - Size T25 should fit this particular screw)
  7. Slide cover back into place - may need to wiggle it a bit to get the bracket under the screw
  8. Tighten screw & you should be back in business
If the bracket on the inside of the cover is broken, this part will need to be replaced. Pfaff parts are only available through an authorized Pfaff dealer so your local dealer will need to order it for you.

Hope this helps - please don't hesitate to respond if you need further help or clarification.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette
